A'o extra charge for t/ie ln.ua- tane finish shown.* As I hnve said, in those days when a wreck occurred, and especially if anybody was killed, if an "Americano" was in charge, he was put in jail and not given his liberty for several months, if at all, and jails in Mexico were loathesome places. I knew something serious had happened in this wreck, and I had to get away from it as soon as possible. As I went out over the wreck I met my engineer running bnck; to find me, and he was exclaiming, "Senor Norton, we were running too fast." I noticed that the middle finger of his right hand had been pulled out at the knuckle. He didn't even know how it had happened. He told me he couldn't find I his fireman. We went back to the | tngine, which was lying on top of j the boiler on the edge of the river. We looked . underneath the deck of the cab, and there we saw the poor fireman's feet sticking out from under the boiler head. Then I knew without a doubt that it was time for me to leave that vicinity. There was an extra following me, and my flagman had gone back to ElSalto to stop thsm. The enginser and conductor, who were also Amer, 'lean's left their train at El Calto, and I they came down on their engine, to (Nee what the situation was. I had J no money in my pockets, and they, — "eali/.ing my clanger, gave me nil they dicntccl they frankl thou lit tt . hud W ' th l ' 1em ' Wh ' ch amounled to replies to interested questioners in-, how' the^w'rec'k' had"' hap^ed^and f.cated they frankly thought that in' they advised me to leave at once their particular districts they could | I, was a rathe, despera e sifuat- noi overcome the natrve Republican ion.

About break of day I left the corral, and tried to find some little cafe or store where I could get a cup of coffee. I could find no cbffee, but in a little store I saw a bottle of Cognac. I bought a big drink of that, and it warmed me up a bit. Afterwards 1 was able lo get a cup of chocolate Th? n I hid near the station until the train I expected arrived. The conductor was a friend of mine, an. American named Valentine. I got on board on the off side from the depot, and lay down in a scat below the windows. When Valentine came through the train ;ifter leaving the station, he found me. He told me the rurales were out after me: He threw two seats together, and told me to stay down out of sight until we reached the City of Mexico. There he instructed me to stay on the train until it was backed up to the shops, and he could come down in a cab and get me. The plan was carried out. and he took me to Tom Detwiler's place—a sort of saloon with , vacant rooms upstairs. I was given one of those vacant rooms, and there I stayed for three days. At the end of that time the conduc. tor who had come down lo the wreck on the extra, learned where I was and came to see. me. He brought me a message from Edward H. Wharf, the General Manager of the Mexican Central. Mr. Wharf wanted me to come to his office and talk to him. I decided to go. Seated 'across the desk from him at last, apprehensive of what might be said—but relieved to be facing the issue at last, I was prepared to tell the whole story exactly as it happened. Mr. Wharf looked at me with a twinkle in his eye and asked me how the wreck happened. The question 'was purely rhetorical. Any experienced railroad man could tell at a glance that those cars would not have piled up the way they had if the running speed of the train had not greatly exceeded thirty kilometers an hour. I merely grinned and said I did not know. Then he showed me the report that had been turned in by Jimmenez, my engineer. Now Jimenez was at that time paying for a wreck the cause of which was his fault. He was only drawing about $50 a month out of a salary of Deal representatives who could not survive an off-year election in districts where Republican strength was solid and enduring.

Television Used to Cover Sports Uncertain Whether It Will Help or Hurt Sports Attendance By C. fc. BUTTEKFIELD Associated Press Rntllo Editor It's a little too soon to say just what television is going to do in the sports World. The broadcast camera this fall tackled the gridiron for its first telecasts of football, to show the thousand or more (estimated) lookers in the New York area what sort of a view they can get without braving the autumn chill. The NBC picture transmitter. W2XBS, and its motor-van portable station have been looking in on a college game hereabouts nearly every Saturday, following thai event with a professional contest on Sundays. By using two cameras, the play is given in closeup and general view. Otherwise, teeing football by television is almost like sitting in a comfortable chair! along the sidelines with the eye restricted only to those es- - sential parts of the play that catty forward the action. Aafi announcer helps out with details that might be missed visually. '. Prize fighting: sis il takes plWe at the Kidgewood Grove arena in Queens is being cast into the air oft a somewhat regular Saturday night schedule. But how is television to fit into the sports picture? Some sporting events have frowned on sound broadcasting— because of a fear that it might cut down the firsthand audience. If one can pee at home after a fair fashion, why go out? However, this is a question for future developments to decide. It might some day ben the tele-camera at regular sporting events, or establish a higher price for the telecast rights than the broadcasters would care lo pay. Such a development in turn might find the broadcaster putting on his own sporting events just for his ether aud- | ience. as other types of programs are /produced. Then, on the other hand, the action of the viewer might be just the opposite. .Getting small televisied glimpses of sports they might be more anxious than ever to attend first hand. about $250. Fearing that he might be considered culpable in this ins- wnee. he.'had reported that a spike had been driven into a railjoint which had derailed the train, lo make his story planusible, Jiminez had actually driven a spike into a rail joint. From 'the Company's standpoint this was an excellent explanation, for i' hrew the blame of the wreck on the Mexican Government. At tha' time Jimenez could not be found, for he too, had fled from (be scene of 'he wreck) and left it in the hands of the extra crew. Mr. Wharf and I <li«cus::ed the matter thoroughly, and lie- asked me to put my confidence in him and follow Hie instructions he should give me. He told me to take over another freight run between .Silao and Augas Calientes, and to remain on it until he sent word to me to come to the City of Mexico to attend the trial. He told me that,he wouldn't ask me to come unless he was certain I would be safe. That if there was the least dan., ger of my being sent to a Mexican jail he'd warn me in time to get out of the country, and render whatever assistance I might need. He explained that it was very important from the Company's standpoint to have me attend the trial, and that if I left the country the Company would have to take the blame. He was so straightforward about it that I had no misgivings about doing exactly what he said. I took the run he assigned to me, and in about three months he sent word to me to come to Mexico City. All of my friends begged me not to go, but I had confidence in Mr. Wharf's word, and started to Mexico City. My confidence was almost shaken before I reached the City, however, for on the way I met the train master, Mr. Styner, and he told, me that Jimenez had been, found, and he had made out a report indicating that the cause of the wreck was not a spike driven into the rail, but excessive speed. Greatly alarmed, I told Mr. Styner that I could not go lo Mexico City and attend a trial with such a statement as that to contest. But he reassured me by staling with a quiet little smile thai Jimenez had been 'disciplined" and that I had nothing to fear. Jimenez was Ihe first witness called, and he testified that we were not exceeding thirty kilometers. After this testimony the Government's case col. lapsed. No more witnesses were called, and I did not have to testify. So instead of leaving the country with n shadow over me, I remained, was allowed my seniority rights and given a passenger run from the City of Mexico to Silao. And I never again trusted the discretion of a Mexican brakeman about speed. Patmos Play Will Be Presented Friday Night The Patmos P. T..
