MD., THURSDAYS NOVEMBER 3, 1955 SEVEN Local Engineer Makes Final Run On Division Benjamin Sanford Brake, Oldtown Road, has retired from the B&O Railroad after completing his last run as a locomotive engineer on Monday on the run from Grafton to Cumberland. Brake lives about two miles beyond the city limits, and has resided there for years. His only son, William Russell Brake, lives just across the road. A daughter, his only other child, resides in Baltimore. She is Eleanor Marie (Brake) McDonald, the mother of Brake's two grandchildren. Quiet and unassuming to a point of shyness, this railroad man who started his career, with the 3&0 in 1907 and became an engineer December 31, 1910, has piloted every type of locomotive on the system. He has always worked , on the local division. "The trains " are better in every way today, when compajed with some of the ituff we used to move almost 50 years ago," Brake commented. Fellow workers presented Brake with an easy chair. He said he expects to do .some resting but will also have more time to devote to hunting and fishing.

Try juice, sugar and oxygen. That's the advice of Dr. Maurice Pruitt, Chattanooga, Tenn., who spoke at the sixth annual National States' Conference on Alcoholism. He also advises that you can take a drug named eiiporphin by. injections to .be free of the desire to drink for a year. Here is his hangover advice: Take a cocktail made of the juice of half a lemon or one orange, one eighth teaspoon o£ salt, two tea spoons of brown sugar and enough ice water to make eight ounces. A couple of jiggers of this, he adds, and you are sober in 30 minutes.

A special force of 27 officers is In the caSe of two Cumberland engineers who have sued the B&O Railroad Company for one million dollars, the railroad said it has complied strictly with provisions of the Railway Labor Act. The suit was filed in Federal ;ourt in Baltimore by Jack W. Welman and Walter H. Schaver. who finally lost their jobs yesterday after fighting dismissal for more than three years. The railroad said it had no choice but to fire them. The dispute arose over provisions of the Union Shop Amendment which Congress wrote into the Railway Labor Act in 1951. The BiO in the same year entered into a union shop agreement with the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. Under its terms, engineers working on the railroad must be members of the brotherhood. Welman and Schaver were members until August of 1952, when they withdrew and joined the rival United Railroad Operating Crafts. Contending they still were eligible for. jobs under the law. they obtained a temporary injunction against dismissal .and continued working while the question moved through administrative and court hearings. They finally lost this effort last permanently assigned to locate and month.
