School Explosion Anniversary

This Sunday marks the anniversary of one of the worst school disasters in U.S. history-- the 1937 gas explosion at the New London Consolidated School in Rusk County, Texas. John talks to Mollie Ward, who saw the blast as a New London fourth-grader and now directs a new museum dedicated to the tragedy.
