ROBERT C. BYRD Blames "Laxity" Byrd Blames Mine Bureau, Coal Firm WASHINGTON ffi - Both the U.S. Bureau of Mines and Consolidation Coal Co. are to blame for the nine-death BlacksviUe, W. Va., coal mine disaster, Sen. Robert C. Byrd has said in a telegram to Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton. The West Virginia Democrat's message was sent to Morton Friday and released by his office here Saturday. "Far too many mine disasters lave occurred in which failures » Mow safety regulations has x:en uncovered," he said. "Far :oo many lives have been lost that could possibly have been saved. "And, in too many instances, :he post-disaster explanations by the Bureau of Mines have proved 1 unsatisfactory." NINE MEN were trapped in tonsolidation's Blacksville No.l mine when fire broke out July 22. Rescuers decided to seal the mine last Monday when a series if explosions took place. "In the Blacksville disaster, i early evidence indicates it never ! should have occurred," Byrd's message continued. "Laxity on the part of the Bureau of Mines has been indi-, cated. This is unconscionable, intolerable, and must be reme-' died in the interest of pdevent- ing future disasters. ; "I urge that all possible steps, be promptly taken to assure ; that maximum, rather than! minimum, penalties are imposed for repeated safety viola-! tions, and that all the provisions ! of the Coal Mine Health and Safety Act be vigorously enforced." Bureau of Mines inspectors cited the mine for 485 safety violations since the mine opened in February 1969 and state safe-1 ty inspectors hit it with another 465 violations
