No. 23 pulled into Gallatin, sat coughing nervously for fivja minutes, chuffed hurriedly on toward Winston, 11 miles ahead. It was 10:29 P.M., July 15, 1881, when she rolled into the Winston depot. The engineer had. made up 1 minutes, was feeling better. •Two men were sliding out c the shadows north of the depo running to the baggage car' handrail, swarming up it to th roof of the car, crawling stealth ily along it toward the fireman' tender and the engineer's cab. The itliree bearded slumberer in the smoker were leaping sue denly to their feet, jerking ou single action revolvers, blasting round of warning shots over thei fellow passengers' startled heads and shouting the ' old familia order: "All right, get them up! Don' nobody -move or you'll get you heads blown off!" With the order, their leader fired three shots at the oil lami at the far end of the smoker. The lamp shattered. The conductor ran toward Jesse who stood under the second, near er lamp of the smoker, crying "Don't break the other! We don' want a fire in here!" As he came up to Jesse, the :ull light of the remaining lamp 'ell on his face, and for the firs :ime the bandit leader had a clear, close look at the car. con ductor. "Westphal! It's Billy West phal—!" He fired with both guns, into he conductor's .groin. The trainman staggered back, turned anc stumbled groaningly down the aisle toward the rear door. Jesse 'ollowed him, not hurrying, not rying to stop him, but pumping another deliberate shot into his lack every three steps of the way. Somehow, the dying man eached the vestibule door. Jes.se et him fumble the door open, fall down the smoker's outer steps to the depot platform. Following only to the last step, he shot him 'our more times. Seven years before, conductor Villiam Westpahl had been in charge of the special Hannibal & t. Joe train which had crossed he Missouri to sidetrack at Kearney the night of the Samuel farm- louse bombing! Jesse killed him with "nine bullets, none fired J at a rango greater than 10 feet, and five of hem from behind," say eyew.i ness affidavits of 15 fellow pas- engers ana upon tne inquest fma- ngs still on file in the Daviess bounty coroner's office. Fate was closing out the ac- ount of Jesse W. James. At the our of the Winston robbery, there emained to his dark credit in er grim ledger only three mis- akes to be made. The moment William Westphal ied, these three were less by ne. The Winston robbery was a mis- rable failure. Jesse had possessed information hat the combination express- aggage car aas carrying upward f $25,000. His informant had for- otten to state that the sum would e in the form of non-negotiable via bandit wheat - sack and addelhorn, at least) fifteen-pound igots of mint silver! There were nly $600 in the safe. ; Another passenger, unstrung by Vestphal's murder, had tried to un out of the car and the bandit eader had cut him down in brutal urn. Frank and Wood Hite stanv eded by the double murder, had acked out of the car, abondon- ig the raging Jesse. The conduc- ors in the train's only cars, coaches and a sleeper, had olted their doors and put out all leir aisle - lights. Then, during ie following assault on the ex- ress car, the engineer —his uards called off to aid in the •uitless sack of the express-corn- any safe — had extinguished his ab lights and headlight, plunging entire train into daUcness, but the price of murder was going down. Splitting the $600 with his four accomplices, Jesse paid himself $60 apiece for his two homicides.

Is Your Life on NBC defies generalization or a definition that will stick from week to week. There are tim'esit borders on the, morbid and maudlin as guests under deep emotional strain are exposed to nationwide view by TV camera closeup. But on other occasions, Edwards comes up with human drama as warm and as exciting as anything likely to be seen in fiction. Such an occasion was the presentation of the life of Rev. Kiyoshi Tanirnoto, who organized the campaign that has brought 25 girl victims of the Hiroshima atomic blast to the United States for plastic surgery. The eyewitness story of the first atomic destruction of a city, in the Rev. Mr. Tanimoto's words, has a personalized touch that never could be equaled in a dramatized recreation of the event. And there was drama Engineers to Build Bridge LITTLE ROCK UP) — An engi neering firm with offices in New York and Kansas City was employed by the Arkansas Highway Commission today for construction of the new bridge across the Mississippi River near Helena, Ark. The contract with Howard, Needles, Tammen and Bergendorff is subject to approval of the Mississippi Highway Commission. The contract calls for a possible payment of around $500,000. Highway Director Herbert Eldridge explained, however, that this was subject to adjustment either up or down if the job runs longer, or shorter, than the expected bfi months. He also said that if the two commissions decide to terminate the private engineering firm's services after plans are completed and not us the company during actual construction the agreed on cost is PRETTY HUNGRY FARNSBOROUGH, E n g I a n (UP) British Army Bugler Ja Fury, got. 112 days in the guari house for stealing 24 eggs and h alp-pound of bacon from the me hall because "1 was hungry night." about $230,000. Total cost of the bridge is expected to run about nine million in the first meeting of Tanimoto, who experienced the A - homing from the ground, and Capt. Robert Lewis, who copiloted the plana that dropped the bomb and rote afterward in his log, "My God, what have we done?" Capt. Lewis presented a check representing his and fellow crew members' contributions to the fund for medical treatment of Hiroshima blast victims. Some critics have questioned whether Edwards' guests are unaware they're to be starred until he informs them on the air. And some have questioned the propriety of e xp o s ing persons under emotional - strain to nationwide view. But whatever the case for or against the surprise at the start, Edwards' show an occasion can be fascinating and delightful. dollars.

Buick engineers took the hardtop body design that has been growing tremendously in popularity over the past six years—and gave it four doors instead of two. Simple? Sure—to all outward appearances, But it took a brand-new kind of body with wholly new structural principles to do it "-to bring this long-awaited new kind of automobile to the public in volume numbers and at popular prices, For this is a true hardtop—with the sleek and racy look of a Convertible, because there are no center posts in the window areas on either side, And now it has front doors for the front-seat passengers— and rear doors for the rear-seat passengers —plus room increased to the size of a full Sedan, (It took some special kind of engineering magic, you can be sure, to hinge all four.doors at their forward edges for greater safety, and more ease of entering and exiting.) , sw»ch fhe pitch ,'ust by SsS, '" CrUiS ' n9 ' You lighfning-liki respond or " Se ° r sudden sofely- surqe Performance fl n' ROADMAST«, Op n 0 . r , '" 9 P ° Wer ' or for 2515 Local Delivered Price of $ the 1 955 Buick SPECIAL " 2-Door, 6-Paittnger Stdan, • ^ Model 49 (illustrated) It Optional equipment, accessories, stale and local taxes, if any, additional.

Living Costs Down Fraction, Report Shows The section to which he refer- >acd provides that for income tax' 'purposes "No gain or loss shall be recognized to a corporation on the receipt of money or other property in exchange for stock including treasury stock of such corporation." The term "treasury stock" means the corporation's own stock held in its treasury. Mills said it is a common practice among the nation's 450,000 corporations to buy some of their own stock on the open market and retain it for a time in the company's treasury. The new law, he said, is a "wide open invitation for corporations to speculate and invest in their own stock " Claims Own Mind But Its Very Doubtful (LEAD JUDGE SAYS) By JAMES DEVLIN NEW YORK — A Yale University senior who says he has "two hands and a head" of his cwn has won the right to reject $400,000 left to him by.his father.

This is three- tenths of one per cent less than in April last year. It is the lowest the index has been since May, 1953, when it was 114.0. Lower prices for automobiles! and a fractional decline in rents I were mainly responsible for the lower index reading. Mrs. Aryness Joy Wickens, act ing commissioner of labor statistics, said both used and new car prices dropped 4 per cent between March and April. These are actual purchase prices, not list prices.
