E. W. Judy, vice president and general manager of the Dutfnesue Light Company, which owns the mine, said the last .four .bodies.dis- covered by the rescuers were so badly burned they ' could' not be identified immediately. Another victim also was unidentified. He identified the other victims as: , Thomas Kecer, 36; Joseph Kopri- vinkar, 41; Frank Harpster; Joe Prelesnik, and Matt Anderson, 59, mine forman. Judy said one more man still was unaccounted for, making the possible death toll 11. Hundreds of residents of the little mining village ot Harwlck, located about 20 miles east ot Pittsburgh, milled about the tipple dur- •ing the long hours a masked rescue crew of 30 men was fighting its way through fumes and debris below. For hours after the blast wrecked two sections of the big mine, shortly before noon, there was a chance that the 11 missing men might have survived. Early tonight one man, George Bertram, a trackman, was found unharmed. Six hundred are normally em- .ployed in the shaft on the outskirts of Plttsburjh, but the mine was L ldle'today and only 46 foremen and Tepairmen were in the shaft. Scenes at the mouth of the mine, operated by a subsidiary of the Duquesne Light Company to supply ;coal for its power plant, were similar to those of January 25, 1904. when a blast tore through the mine, killing 182. Only one man escaped that explosion. Women and children, sobbing softly, gathered with the Idle min ers from the little community of Harwlck as rescue crews climbed into the elevator and went down the shaft. More than 300 watched the crew hurry to the mine from -surrounding villages. •W. J. Fene, an engineer of tfce TJ. S. Bureau of Mines, estimated the explosion occurred about two miles from the main opening and about a half mile from the Kissick air shaft. Mrs. Etta F. Ford Mrs. Etta Prances I''ord, wife of Otbo J.

Trippe stated that the fire was of "unknown origin," incidental to the dumping of Ihe gasoline.

"Captain Musick and his Might crew are entirely blameless," Trippe said. "Hadio reporls from the plane prove that on this flight as on all previous llighls be carefully followed the most conservative opernllng tec*llni(|lle possible. "Needless to say, everyone con necled with Pan American Airways is grieved beyond expression al Ihe untimely fate of Captain Musick and his splendid crew, Al llils lime, with all details unknown, we can only express the belief that after a thorough analysis of tbe possible causes of the tire, a way will be found to prevent a recurrence."

MAN GIVEN FIRST AUTOMOBILE RIDE Oakland, Md., Jan. 12 (#>)— Garrett county officers gave Buck Broad water, 31, his first automobile ride at the request of relief workers who asked that he be brought from his mountain home near Bond. Relief authorities said he \vas undernourished and improperly cared for in his mountain cabin. Broadwater said he had traveled before—once he went to Piedmont, W. Va., two miles from his home. He had seen railroad trains but had never ridden on one, nor had he ever seen an electric light before he arrived here. Dr. Bamberger Is Luncheon Speaker "Never let your children know that they have shocked yon and you will be their confidante," was the advice given by Dr. Florence Bam- Ijurger, of Johns Hopkins University, to a group of sixty mothers who gathered at the Women's Club Tuesday for th? luncheon of the child study seel ion. Dr. Hamburger's talk dwelt on the emotional and mental problems of the adolescent age. a time when children face their most difficult problems. Good habits, intsilled at an early aye. were recommended the best preparaiion which a parent can give for this period. Such training is tbn responsibility of the home and not ihe school, Dr. Hamburger stated. The speaker defined the type o£ dividual most needed in tbe world today as a peison who can make wise and ethical choices in all aspects of life and carry these choices through to fulllment. In order to have their children come up to such an ideal, parents should provide freedom to think, move and [eel, security and order. The importance of living well together was stressed and Dr. Bam- wrgor also pointed out the eduna- lonal advantages of letting child•en make mistakes, adding that they should never bu shielded from the resulting circumstances.
