Workers raced through the night to complete the seals against the possibility of further explosions deep inside the burn- ing, gas-filled mine on the West Virginia-Pennsylvania border. Rescue operations for the trapped men ended abruptly Monday after three small explo- sions sent about 50 rescue work- ers scurrying for the mine's lone entrance shaft.

One Inspector termed the situ- ation deplorable, adding: "Somebody should have got- ten the message to straighten things out a long time ago."
