HOOK, George & John

DUBOIS PA July 17 - The bodies of 21 victims of the mine explosion were taken from the workings at Sykesville today. The bodies were not burned or otherwise mutilated and it was evident that they died from after damp.
G. A. Burrell, chemist of the bureau of mines car from Pittsburg[sic], took a quantity of blood from the body of each victim and will examine it to determine the number killed by the explosion and the number by damp. It is believed the explosion was caused when some miner struck a pocket of gas and it exploded from the naked lamp.
The greatest mine disaster in this section of the country occurred last night at 9:30 o'clock in a shaft of the Cascade Coal and Coke Company at Sykesville, 9 miles south of Dubois, the lives of 21 miners being snuffed out almost instantly as the result of an explosion.
Three sets of brothers and a father and son are included in the list of the dead.
George and John Hook, brothers, were found clasped in each other's arms, as were also Nick Pavelick and his young son, aged 15 years. Nick Pavelick and his son were hurrying along together and, finding that death was inevitable, they embraced each other in a farewell and died while clasped together.
The first intimation that the people on the surface had that an explosion had occurred was when the safety door on the fan blew open and the machinery began to run wild. It was immediately surmised that something was radically wrong in the shaft, but the extent of the disaster was not known until 11 o'clock last night, when the rescuers entered the mine.

HORCHLER, Clarence W.

Mr. and Mrs. George G. Horchler, of 106 East Cherry street, received the sad message from the War Department, Monday afternoon, stating that their son, Second Lieut. Clarence W. Horchler met death in an accident on June 10, in the Pacific area. Details of the mishap which brought death were not given in the message, which came from Adjutant General Ulto, of the U. S. Army, but further word is expected to be received in the letter. Lieut. Horchler, who was 19 years of age, graduated with the June class of 1941 at Senior high school, and entered the aviation branch of the army in April 1942. While a student in high school he was very popular with his fellow students and active in his class.

Although the location of the scene of the accident was not given, the last word the parents had from their son was that he was located in the Hawaiian Islands, and it is presumed that it was there that he met his death. In addition to the parents, George O. and Beatrice W. Horchler, he is survived by two brothers, both of whom are in service. 2nd Lt. George R.
