Two persons Were killed when the Chiacgo and Eastern Illinois railroad train left its rails. First home of rhe Declaration of Independence, signed by 56- patriots from the 13 original States of the Union, was in Independence Hall, Philadelphia.* In December, 1776, British troops batHed General Washington's troops back across the Delaware. Farced to flee Philadelphia, members of the Continental Congress used a light wagon to transport the document and other precious papers to the safety of Baltimore. Returned to Philadelphia in 1778, the Declaration's next trip was made in 1783, when angry Colonial soldiers, clamoring for their pay, marched o* the State House with fixed bayonets. The lawmakers fled, with the Declaration, to Princeton, N. J. A silent witness of historic assemblies at Annapolis, M<i., and Trenton, N. J., the charter of liberties accompanied the 'Continental Congress to New York in 1785. There the first U. S. Congress was formed and the Declaration given to President Washington. The document suffered its next narrow escape in the War af 1812. At the British laid siege to Washington, by now the nation's capital, Gen. Vincent Pleasonton had the government's papers wrapped in linen and placed* into carts which were hidden overnight in .an abandoned grist mill i Georgetown, Vo. Returned to Washington, the defiant document by which the Union had severed its allegiance to Britain was housed in several buildings—longest in the supposedly fireproof Patent Office Building where it hung for 35 years, exposed to light that made it _ fade badly. In 1877, fire destroyed, the Patent Office. Fortunately, the precious paper, which had just been brought back from Philadelphia's Centennial Exposition, was, at that time, on exhibition at the library of the State, War and Navy Departments. For the next 27 years, the parchment was kept in a steel safe. In 1921, by order of the President, it was placed on public view in a permanent shrine) in the Library of Congress. Independence Declaration Has Had Many Escapes As America celebrates the 175th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, few Americans realize the exciting, thrill-packed life the great document has led. Homeless for the first 101 years of its life, it had narrow escapes from "clangers of invasion from without and convulsions within." It survived journeys to 10 cities in five states as well as two wars on American soil. Above are illustrated some of the adventures the Declaration experienced in it drama-packed history.

Vogeler Says Reds Will Still Kidnap Yanks GRAND LAKE, Colo., July 3 — Communist satellite countries will continue kidnaping American na tionals and holding them for ransom until the United States takes a firm stand, says Rqbert Vogeler. Vogeler is recuperating here from his stay in a Communist prison in Hungary. He pleaded guilty to espionage charges there, and repudiated nis confession when released. Commenting on the guilty plea of AP Correspondent William N. Oatis to Czech spv charges in Prague yesterday, Vogeler said, "the confession was forced." "As long as we don't take a firm stand in these gangster kid- napings, we shall have more and more and more," he told a reporter. "We won't tolerate them here: Why should we do so on an international basis? They snatch an American citizen and hold him prisoner until our State Department coughs up a ransom, or grants *ome condition the satellite country can't get by negotiation." By letting "the Reds walk all over us," Vogeler said, the United States is losing face with the] smaller countries. "We are much too tolerant. I say we should respond with re- Seize Slots in E.

Tax stamps, he said, also were Issued to the Silvis Veterans Association where six slots were seized recently, and to the Rock Island Arsenal Golf Club, over which local authorities have no jurisdiction. taliatory measures. This game can be played by both sides." He predicted that the Czechs would give Oatis "their 15-year sentence, which amounts to life in that country. "Then they will begin negotiating with the State Department for some ransom for his release. Can't Washington see that this will go on and on if it isn't met?"
