The Lehigh Navigation Coal Company intimated today that the life of the Lansford Colliery depends upon the men who work there. Describing the district as a "consistently steady loser," the firm asserted the operation has shown financial losses over the years that reflect poorly not only on that district but on Panther Valley as a whole. The company stated that it wants closer cooperation immediately to ensure future job security for more than 2,000 people employed here.
