Democrat Declines W cl Agmult Featured 1st Dollar Day Judge Nomination ttemocr&ts of the Ninth Judicial Circuit 'are, at the moment, without a candidate for the Oct. 19 election to fill the vacancy on the three-man bench. Fulton County Judge Francis Patrick Murphy, who received unanimous approval of delegates of six counties at last week's convention in Have You Heard That Mf. and Mrs. Charles B. Robi•on of Des Plaines and their four children, Kenneth, Peter, Dianne and Alice, were recent visitors in the home of Mrs. Robison's parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. Ross Parkins, 1289 N. Cherry St., and Robison's sister, Mrs. B. J. McGann, 1189 Beecher Ave. The Robisons previously spent three weeks touring New Mexico and Colorado. Robison took an Explorer Scout leader's course at Philmont Scout Ranch, near Cimarron, N.M. Kenneth and Peter also participated in scout activities there. The Rev. Raymond D. Huttner, who served during World War II and the Korean conflict as a Catholic chaplain and has retired from active Army duty with the rank of lieutenant colonel, has completed a visit here with his brother- in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Eber, 1484 N. Broad St. He will conduct a retreat in the Carmelite Retreat House at Mahwah, N. J., next month. He recently observed his 25th anniversary in the priesthood. List Hours for Free Bus Service Free bus service. Wednesday, Dollar Day, as provided by Galesburg Motor Coach, Inc., will start at 8:15 a. m. and continue until noori, it has been announced by W. E. Kelly, bus owner. Transportation* without cost will be provided during that time from the residential districts to downtown Galesburg only. The free service does not apply to travel from the business district to the residential areas. Galesburg, today rejected the nomination in a letter to county chairmen. Murphy had asked at the convention for a few days to think the offer over. John B. Totten, McDonough County Democratic chairman, who also presided at last Tuesday's convention, said he and sev« eral other county chairmen would confer tonight at a meeting of the 20th Congressional District chairmen at Winchester, near Jacksonville in Scott County, in an attempt to pick another possible candidate. O'Brien Touted Totten and several other Democrats of the Ninth Judicial District have recommended for the nomination Leo F. O'Brien Galesbury attorney. O'Brien, presently on vacation, could not be reached for comment. Discussing Murphy's -withdrawal this morning, Totten said, "I still think the party's best chance is this year. Murphy, in refusing to be a candidate, again cited his "responsibility to the voters of Fulton County." He hai, recently completed the first year of his second term as Fulton County judge. In his letter to the county chairmen, the jurist noted "real progress" in several programs .in which he was involved in the county. Among these is one combating juvenile delinquency. j "It would not be a responsible act on my part to take any step \ hich would result in delay of these programs by creating a vacancy in the county court of Fulton County," the judge said. Forty-four years and thousands of dollars ago, there was once a first dollar day. That was in 1915, when the promotion stunt was contrived by the two" newspapers of Galesburg, the Republican-Register and the Evening Mail. The Register headlined that one in this way: "Bargains more numerous than the German armies on Inspection June 17." The story mentioned a 16-page advertising section "wherein the frightful havoc to be wrought in values will be duly set forth." It promised that dollar day cards would be posted in the windows of participating stores so that "participants in the general assault on the old h.c.l. can be thus readily distinguished." (H.c.l., for those who don't want to decipher it, refers to the high cost of living.) Not Everything for $1 Then, as now, newspaper stories emphasized that not everything went for one buck. Automobiles, diamond rings and pianos, prospective dollar day buyers were advised, would still sell for slightly more than that. The buying fever apparently ran high that war-filled year. For Great War, or no Great War, Wilson or Hughes, people then, as now, loved "a deal." They must have gotten their deals, because the day has become a solid tradition in Galesburg, and the bargains in Wednesday's Dollar Day are as bountiful as ever, this 44th year since.

MAIM Roads Drop Unprofitable Passenger Trains WASHINGTON (tlPt^ - The nation's railroads are "dropping un-1 profitable passenger trains as fast as they can. An Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) survey showed today that the railroads have discontinued 41 passenger trains• since an administrative snwt cut I was approved by Congress one year ago. | In addition, the lines have: County Judge Plans Sessions Before Trials With 15 cases now on the criminal docket and set for trial when Knox County Court jury trials begin Oct. 5, Judge Daniel J. Rob : erts is preparing a calendar of pretrial conferences. • While pre-trial conferences have been conducted in connection with circuit court cases, this policy previously has not been in effect in county court. Tire conferences, the judge indicated, are expected to pave the way for speedier and smoother disposal of the trial calendar. strrted proceedings to eliminate j 6C more interstate passenger runs ami 40 interstate trains. ; The ICC also gave railroads per- i mission to abandon 4,664 miles of j track from 1954 to the start of this year. 1 The trend appeared to bear out a warning by ICC examiner How-1 ard Hosmer that inter-city passen- j ger train service would be dead 1 by 1970 if railroads continued their '• current practices. j The flood of discontinued • trains followed approval of the! 1958 Transportation Act which 1 eliminated the previous regulatory red tape surrounding route aban­ donments. Under the act. a railroad must give 30-vlays notice of plans to abandon passenger trains. The ICC then has 20 days to block the proposal by suspending the discontinuance for four months pending an investigation. Previously, proposals to abandon passenger train service were handled by less * sympathetic state regulatory commissions. Now. if a state commission fails to act or denies a discontinuance, the railroad is free to petition the ICC. Army Probes Dog Roasting Case WASHINGTON (AP)-The Ar my is looking into the case of a recent West Point graduate who killed and barbecued a dog to show civilian friends something about living off the land. Officially the Army had no comment on the reports that Second Lt. Andrew P. O'Meara. 22, of West Bend, Wis., had been convicted in Peoria, 111., of cruelty to animals and fined $205. The prosecutor said the young officer explained he was carrying out a sort of rehearsal for sur- -vivat training he will receive later in his military career. Army personnel o/ficers got their information about the incident from press reports. A spokesman said it was possible no- further action would be taken in the matter because O'Meara's case has already been handled by civilian authorities. The fact that O'Meara was convicted and punished for a misdemeanor, however, will in due course find its way into the officer's permanent personnel record. BLS BROWN-LYNCH-SCOTT 244 E.
