With reports still outstanding, the volunteer auditors last nighl totaled the returns lo 5112.314.28. The announcement of the con- :inued effort was made today by Dr. Charles L. Kopp, general chairman, after a conference .with James W. Bisho'p. advanced gifts chairman; Robert E. Barnard, chairman of Ihe classified division, and H. D. Barber, chairman of the sales army. " Others Could Help Dr. Kopp said employes of many firms made their contributions this year through the payroll plan. There arc still a greater number who could help by contributing on Ihe same basis, he added. This is an appeal lo everyone employed in the Cumberland area .1 help his neighbor by subscrib- ng now, Ihe drive chairman reported. Citizens of the enlirc Cumberland irca and nearby Wesl Virginia are served by a number of agencies supported by Ihc Community Mitchell, chief of the motor vehicle accident investigation branch in Washington and "James B. Weber, district supervisor from Wheeling. Inspection Explained They are conducting their own investigation with the cooperation of Slate Police and the slate's at- lorncy's office. Al Bedford loday al a garage lhal is inspection station for the Pennsylvania Inspection ' Bureau the manner of checking .tractor trailers was explained. The shop , foreman • said '. tires, lights, steering mechanism and brakes are the most .'important parts of the inspection. The (ruck motor is started' up and the air pressure is allowed to buildup. Then it is turned off and allowed to stand for a certain per- .iod. The air is checked lo see if Ihere is any leakage. The hoses are checked'to see if they are Ihc type approved by the stale bureau. Taping of hoses is absolutely not allowed, he said. Safely Devices Required The shop' foreman also reported that Ihe ICC has required for the past two years several safely devices in case of air brake system failure. , If the <ajr fails in the tractor, valve automatically keeps the air in the trailer's brakes. - If the air fails in the Iraclor, a another valve keeps the.air in the tractor brakes. . But if all .the air brakes and the air fails, an automatic device locks the brakes of the' trailer. However, there is a possibility thai if a key diaphragm blows out; these will not lock. •Myers told stale police thai his ail failed as he slarled lo descend Big Savage Mountain. He disengaged the gear and raced Ihe mo- lor in an attempt to build up the air pressure, but this failed. The rig loaded with 20-tons of sheet, metal then roared .over Route 40 for a dislance of nine miles unlil Ihe accident in Allegany k Grove. The Bedford garageman said thai Ihc Pennsylvania Inspection Bureau carries penalties for the station -that approves faully equip-,- with fines and the loss of tho station permit.

Remedial Action Urged There have been accidents on the highways that have taken heavier tolls, but more and- more trucks are running wild on mountain roads following brake failure. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazelle lo- day carried another Page 1 banner headline on the Cumberland disaster and also appealed editorially 'or immediate remedial action. The Cumberland News printed a sim- lar editorial this morning. The intense interest by Pittsburgh stems from the same kind of disaster in Uial area.
