The space Agency a Goddard satellite tracking Center reported the fiery object was a rocket launched from Russia april 21. It boosted itself and a Molnia communications satellite into orbit.

The rocket plunged to its destruction at 2 44 . Off Florida a East coast and was clearly visible in the Cape Kennedy area. Patrick airbase and Brevard county Law enforcement officers reported Many phone Calls. One Patrick Pilot said he saw six to to objects travelling at great Speed which were neither planes nor meteors. Similar sightings were reported in cities across the state. And no agreement to set a schedule for future sessions because that would be worked out from Day to Day. There also is no arrangement for either Harriman or Thuy to preside Over the meetings.

Apr we prayed and Sang and talked about living a better life when we got out. We had a real religious Bunch Down there. We went into that mine at 7 Hon trappers Bay in Dickin . Monday. It was like any son county twin lakes near other Day. Wed been working Rockwell City Heery Woods that Shaft before so we knew near Clarksville and Wanata at our Way around pretty Well. Peterson. Wed been working four and one half hours when we got the first Call. This Supply Man Ernest f i t z w a t e a who delivered supplies to the miners on a self propelled cart phoned us and said he had run into water. He said he was getting out. Frank Davis our superintendent said there were to other men Way Down the Side Shaft and he was going after them with Edward Bozo Rudd. He told me to get my Bunch out of there up to High ground. That water was coming in like a River. In about 20 minutes there were eight inches and then it was up to two feet in no time at All. The water was touching the ceiling in the swag a Long deep dip in the mine floor. There a not much to move around in Down there a its Only 32 inches High. But Down by the Edge of the swag ifs six feet and a Man can stand. I got the men who were with me out of there a there were 13 of us. Then we waited. Nobody panicked. Everybody was real Cool. As soon As he got to a phone Davis called the outside and told them to ready the pumps. I knew we were going to get out because i had Faith in Tim Salvati one of the outside Rescue officials who was one of the first into the mine to Lead the men out. We just talked. Some of us slept. For awhile we just sat and had a Good old Bull session. All the boys had a Good sense of humor. And they told a lot of jokes. I care to repeat them Here in front of my wife. After awhile we had trouble breathing. There was plenty of air but we had pressure in there because of the rising water. Our ears nearly blew up when they punched that Hole through an air and Supply Hole drilled from the top of the Mountain. That Hole meant life for us. Food blankets and drinking water. Before they Sank that Hole it was cold if you did no to move around. We were pretty disappointed when they did no to get us out when they said they would but it did no to dishearten us too much. We knew there were going to be several problems we understood them and we knew the boys outside were going to run into them. Tuesday night we saw the water Start dropping. When Bunny Dillon became sick Oscar Dillon had an ulcer attack and was sent Medicine from outside some of the men thought he was going to die. It was real bad there for awhile. Andy my brother is a real card. He told the Best jokes. We called him the doctor because he took care of Bunny. The hardest thing to get used to Down there was sleeping on that Coal. Man it sure was hard my legs feel pretty weak from being All cramped up. But otherwise i feel Fine. I Haven to decided y e t whether ill go Back Down that mine. A Guy has got to pay the rent. Hugging. It was difficult to make our any of the conversations As the scene turned to bedlam. Sadness too there also was sadness among relatives of the to missing men crowded to the Entrance in faint Hope. Mine officials had not publicly released a list of those known to be alive and those presumed dead but it was Likely that families had been notified. But they still crowded in Hope. Or. Lee Todd the mine physician quickly looked Over each Man. Officials had said the men had agreed Over the radio Telephone to undergo Hospital observation. But there was a change in plans that attested to their Good condition despite the Long cramped confinement. They were allowed to go Home. A a they re All in Good shape a said Todd. A none of them wanted to go to the three groups the miners were trapped in three groups separated by a half mile each. Until Friday 13 men were in one place. Frank Davis and Edward Rudd were in another. Then when the water level had been lowered by round the clock pumping Davis and Rudd joined the 13. Giant pumps forcing out some 15 million Gallons of water finally emptied the passageway to the Point where the miners could crawl to a Point of escape. The pumps were stilled while the men came out. Then they groaned to life again. A we will continue to Drain the mine until we make Contact with the remaining to men a said c. E. Richardson president of the company.
