HOPE IS HOT GOIE
Man Who Has Been Held In
Small Hole by Boulder
Grows Weaker and Weak
er Each Day.
TO MOVE ROCK
Body Has Been Dragged
Five Inches in Four Days.
—Friends Have Not Given
Up tte Fight Yet.
Cave City, Ky„ Feb. 3 (By the Asso
ciated Press). —Pallid of face, hs lips
purple, and his strength fast ebbing. Floyd
Collins early today lay in the mole hole
in Sand Save, waiting for someone, some
thing, to release his foot held down by
a huge boulder Which fell upon it When
he was exploring the Cave Friday morn
For 24 hours he was alone.
Saturday he was found and since that
time scores of men have tried in vain to
rescue him, but the ingenuity of man has
'gone for naught. In the narrow crev
ice, hardly small enough for a man to
squeeze through the boulder immovable,
has held Collins while the constant drip
ping of the wnter has created a torture
chamber such as was known only in ages
For hours men have pecked away at
the boulder with cold chisels, others have
tugged at a rope fastened about the body
of the victim. He has been moved five
inches in four days.
But hope, stronger than the bodies of
the rescuers, held out today and renewed
efforts were being made to pull Collins
from his living tomb.
Apparently only the most primitive
methods will be successful if anything is
to be. A compresed air drill rushed
from Louisville was not used, because
experienced cave men said there was
grave danger that the vibrations would
loosen other rocks and cause the narrow
passage to collapse.
Why couldn’t something be done? That
was the question asked on all sides. Sure
ly there was some way whereby he could
have been rescued by this time.
A staff ’correspondent of the Louisville
■Courier-Journal asked the question early
here, the corresiwndent told of going into
the cave to the imprisoned man.
He said lie was lowered by his heels
into the entrance of the cave and de
scended to the end of an 80-foot drop
where he reached fairly level ground.
“From here on I had to squirm like a
snake," he said. "Water covers almost
every inch of the ground. Every moment
it got colder. Finally I slid down an 8-
foot drop and a moment later saw Col
The correspondent said tlint Collins’
brothers. Marshal and Homer, had done
everything ’possible for him, sparing
themselves nothing until they collapsed,
from exhaustion. Still optimistic, but
himself facing a complete breakdown, Col
lins has entered into any scheme to ex
Early today it was discovered that
workmeen within the cave could bo heard
faintly from the side of the hill about
300 feet from the entrance.
A plan to bring 100 men to the spot and
begin a tunnel immediately was evolved.
The rescue work, heretofore heroic but
haphazard and unorganized, took on a
semblance of order. If a tunnel put
through the hill strikes Sand Cave more
than 150 feet from the entrance, work
men for the first time will reach Collins
from the side where the rock weighting
hitpjdown can be seen.
