Snyder As I moved slowly under the barbed wire, I thought of the reported 30,000 Communist guerrilla fighters in our area. Inch by inch I made my way, hoping that the dull metallic sounds of my rifle against the stones would not be heard by enemy ears. I tried not to breathe too loudly, lest the hollow Korean night carry the sounds to alert enemy soldiers. Just a. little farther and the wire would'' end. A few feet more and my body would be clear of the. wire, and I could roll into the ditch I knew was at the edge of the last strands of fencing. Suddenly I ' heard running feet, then the halt whisper of an Oriental voice!;At that moment two feet appeared just inches in front of me. As I lifted my The Rev. James L.

(AP)- Deep-shaft coal mining was considered a thing of the past in Centre County until the Rush-ton Mining Co. opened up the biggest mine ever developed in the county....a mine that takes out coal which for a century and a half no one considered worth going after. The reason for the switch is that modern electric generating plants need vast amounts of coal and aren't too particular what kind they burn. The new operation of the Johnstown - based company is known as the Rushton Mine and gets its name from its location in Rush Twp., a mile or so from this community. Production began on a limited scale a year ago and today the output is at the rate of 350,000 tons a year, which is to be doubled in two years. The mine works three shifts, two on production and one on maintenance, and employs 72 men. When production is increased, the payroll will have an additional 50 workers. The mine is perhaps the county's deepest and its most completely automated one and is, in fact, one of the very few deep mines left in the county. Most other operations today are strip mines. Entrance is by way of a concrete-lined shaft 605 feet long Please Turn to Page 8, Col. 1 trophy-sized bear - Dennis Merrey, 17, (left foreground) of Clearfield and his hunting companions, Richard Bender (right) and Kenneth Haney, display huge black bear Merrey shot Monday near the Four Mile Road in Pine Township.
