Tne rescue efforts still were slowed by carbon monoxide gas, but 18 more bodies were round and brought to tile surface early today.

Charges that the mine was known to be dangerous come from several sources. A letter was made public wliich had been sent mor; than a year ago by officials of the Iccal miners' union to Gov. D^'ight II. Green. It charged that despite a previous inspection by state officials, the mine was unsafe, and asked the governor to "please save our : Hves"by removing alleged hazards. ^ Other discJosires showed that as recently ns last' week a state mine inspector posted a notice at the mine listing several alleged safety violations. At Washington, the U. S. Bureau of Mines acknowledged that gas ha c ] been found in the mine "within the last 30 days." Sen. Etvles Bridges, R., N. H., charged that an inspector for. VJ_bureau of mines listed oil violaTVj'is of the safety code in a report lo Washington last November. Meanwhile, the Senate prepared for an investigation of the disaster. Gov. Green already had ordered an investigation, and state inspectors were at the scene.
