Death List Uncertain

To Full Facts
TJ03 ANGELES, Oct, . 4. (AP.)
-Answers ;to two. outstanding
questions which emerged from the
first formal inquiry Into the Grif
fith .Park fire .. tragedy were
sought tonight by city and eounty
authorities from survivors of the
disastrous eonflagraf ion w hi e h
brought death to at least 27 men
and injuries .to scores more.
These two questions: whether
or not county welfare workers
were ordered or forced Into the
blind canyon to tight the tire and
whether or not a section foreman
or someone else started a backfire
which ran beyond control, crop
ped up as survivors testified at
a park commission hearing.
While the Inquiry was under
way. Coroner Frank A. Nance an
nounced that a recheck of the
death list showed 27 bodies ac
counted for, with the possiblity a
few more might be found. He
announced an inquest would be
conducted next Wednesday morn
ing. The coroner's Jury, he said,
will be composed of forestry men,
engineers and fire experts.
Men Frantic as

. While 'the questions of the

Workers were disputed in testi
mony before the park commission
ers there was no dispute about
the fact that most of the men who
died .or were injured In the flame
swept canyon , were inexperienced
in fire fighting and lacking suffi
cient trained leadership, did not
know what to do when the tire
rushed upon them.
Testifying before the commis
sioners, four welfare workers de
clared they heard direct orders
given for the men to go into the
canyon and fight the fire.
"Some fellow at the top of the
hill told us to go down," said A.
G. Green. "He said 'If you don't
go you need not show up for any
more work.' I went down ' and
when I got scared and tried to
get out, some man, I think he was
a foreman, stopped me."
"I heard a fellow say 'Get down
there and put out that tire or
there'll be no more work for
I you,' " testified Gilbert Stover.
