Workers Survive When Blast Blows Roof From Plant

Superior -- George Murray and Carl Malyszeski, both of Washburn, are recovering at a Washburn hospital after a miraculous escape when the smokeless powder dryer house of the Dupont plant was blown to pieces.
The roof was blown 150 feet from the rest of the building and the front of the building was also blown away.

Murray and Malyszeski were picked up but slightly injured 150 feet from the building on the other side of a railroad track and do not know whether they ran or they were blown there.
