'The main force of the blast was concentrated at about the 4,000-foot level, but a three- man crew working at the 800-foot level at the time said it shook the whole mine shaft.

It was the dread "after damp' «as that fills closed places after an explosion that killed five of the men, mine experts said. The gas kills by suffocation. Denne. Williams and Winters appeared to have been killed by concussion. Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson a full explanation of reports that a "leak" had.occurred in the Agriculture Department's decision to curtail grain buying. To Quiz Anderson "I am personally convinced," said Andresen, "that the government commodity buying program under the direction of the Secretary of Agriculture has largely dominated prices of commodities and the cost of food to American consumers." The "crash" in the commodities market last week, Andresen said, "demonstrates how completely the Truman administration has dominated and fixed the price of grains and other commodities since July 1, 1946." Andresen said his committee would ask the agriculture secretary about a press report that there had been a "leak" on the department's decision to curtail grain buying in advance of formal announcement last Thursday. Andresen said .his committee would investigate because, he said, "speculators tuned to the pipeline of inside information were able to get out of the market without. loss or take a short position and make tremendous profits in a few days." Stores Follow Break Government economists kept a close eye on all available business barometers, hoping to determine whether last -week's market break was a temporary skid or really the beginning of deflation. The next few days may bring the answer. The biggest question is: Will the price of grain and other commodities climb back up again, hold firm or continue the decline that began last week.
