MO. PAC, SEEKS APPROVAL OF SUBSTANDARD CLEARANCE! gpociit to the Poot-Dlopotch. JEFFERSON CITY, May 5 Approval by the Missouri Public Service Commission of a substandard clearance between relocated tracks of the Missouri Pa cific RaHroad Co. and the south approach to MacArthur bridge Jn St. Louis the result of an error was sought by the company today. The company application attributed the situation to an error in records of the City of St. Louts, which resulted in a clearance between the rails and the bridge approach varying from 19.7 feet to 20.5 feet, instead of the expected differences of 22.2 feet to 23.03 feet. State law requires a track clearance of 22 feet, subject to authority of the commission to approve exceptions.

The track relocated was part of a plan to eliminate grade crossing in Poplar and First streets. 21 ARE CHARGED WITH CONSPIRACY TO UPGRADE EGGS Tbc'Kow York Hra!4 TrUMin'Pot.DipotFli Special Dtuxldi.
