We present soft (0. 18-2. 8 keV) X-ray maps of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) obtained from nine months of scanning observations with the HEAO-1 low energy detectors. The 1/4 keV X-ray map, with a total exposure of 1. 25 multiplied by 10**5 s, is the most sensitive survey of the LMC yet reported. A detailed comparison of the 1/4 keV X-ray observations with the neutral hydrogen column densities in the LMC obtained from a new 21 cm line survey, shows no evidence for absorption effects in the 1/4 keV X-ray flux from the LMC due to the neutral matter in the LMC.
