By QUANE KENYON WILOAMSBURG, Mich. (AP) is a ghost town. The doors of empty houses stand open. Windows are raised. Laundry flaps unat- tended on a clothesline. The sounds of a community at work and at play have given way to silence. This village of 200 persons is deserted because since last Wednesday natural gas has bro- ken through the ground in hun- dreds of places and filled a mile-square area with fumes and ugly mud blowholes. "We first told 'em it would ba at least a week before they could get said Traverse County Sheriff Richard Weiler. "Now we're talking at least two weeks." But other officials said it may be several months, before life returns to normal in Wil'iams- burg. Nearly every structure in the town is over or near a blowhole. Damage is already extensive. One blowhole erupted near the town hall, seriously under- mining the structure, built in 1889. Another is eating away the main highway, which probably will have to be rebuilt. FEAR EXPLOSION The perimeter of the deserted village is patrolled by sheriff's deputies to keep out looters and to prevent accidental spark. Meanwhile, efforts continued to plug a natural gas well which some state officials have blamed for causing the erup- tions. Amoco Production Co., the drilling subsidiary of Standard Oil of Indiana, has denied that suspended times only publication several to be revived by a its 6.000-foot gas well 3Ms miles southeast of Williamsburg has caused the trouble, but has agreed to plug it. The company says it will take at least three weeks. Amoco also is drilling a sec- ond shaft 900 feet north of the well to determine whether there is any gas in a limestone for- mation in the area. That is ex- pected to take at least a week. Several shallow relief holes are being drilled around Wil- liamsburg to ease the under- ground gas pressure. Seismic drill rigs are expected to sink one relief hole a day. GAS INCREASING "There is no hope for relief until we get that well said Don Batemah, gas safety engineer for the Michigan pub- lic service commission. "We're getting much more gas now than we were before. If we hadn't had this wind today, we'd really be in trouble." The department of natural re- sources says there have been no reports of wildlife killed in the incident, but two popular trout streams may be badly damaged by mud and clay pushed up by the escaping gas. Meanwhile, the 200 evacuated residents of Williamsburg are living with friends or relatives. Some residents of nearby areas escaped evacuation, but are living without utilities be- cause services were cut off ta prevent an accidental explosion in areas where gas fumes hang heavy. "We've been without watei because the system was run by said Paul Erick- son. "That old outhouse behind my place has seen a lot of use the past couple of days." Union dues show hike OTTAWA (CP) Smoulder ing resentment among inter- national union leaders at labor statistics collected annually by the federal, government could be escalated by new figures re- leased recently. The Corporation Labor Unions Returns Act (CALURA) report on unions, published by Statistics Canada, shows that dues and assessments levied on Canadian members of inter- national unions increased by million from the previous year to a total of million in 1970. Expenditures in three cate- gories by international unionr on Canadian members, on the other hand, increased only slightly to million in 1970 from million in 1969. The three categories are sala- ries and wages paid to union of- ficers and emnlnyees resident in Canada, strike benefit pay- ments and pensions and welfare benefits paid to Canadian bene- ficiaries.
