Screaming in terror, guests shinnied down cables or climbed or were borne down fire ladders early today as flames raged up an elevator shaft of the 5-story Gary hotel. Authorities said there were three known dead, two other persons unaccounted for, and two more critically hurt. At least 24 persons were taken to hospitals for treat- ment of burns, cuts, smoke poisoning and shock. Eleven were kept on for observation and further care. Front Wall Falls The register of the 100- room, 75-year old hotel in the heart of Hazleton's busi- ness district showed a listing of 61 persons. Many of these were report- ed to have been elsewhere when the fire broke out. Five of for example, were musicians of a jazz ensemble playing in a club across the street. Two of the dead were re- moved soon after the fire broke out. A third body was found later. The entire front wall of the hotel collapsed into heaps of rubble. It was thought the two missing persons might be dead in this wreckage. Victims fled from the flarr.- ing building, their night clothes ablaze.
