Their oxygen helmets contain only that much supply. They say that they cannot even see their hands the smoke. The mine has been penetrated to the 7,500-foot level. The men are hanging canvas over the drifts (side tunnels, to block off the man passages. In this manner they hope to clear the main routes of smoke to permit excursions into the drifts.
