M J Lotka was killed in the Scofield Mine disaster on May 1st, 1900. The little town was preparing for a dance that evening to celebrate "Dewey Day". At 10:28 AM a low growl and thud was felt. Dishes and window glass rattled, doors ajar swung slightly and pets awakened and looked about. For an instant, most everyone resumed their activities. Then in ones, pairs and small groups people began to head for the mine. Some thing was wrong..... it would never be right again!
