It.- -Use. of trucks and tractorrs on American farnvs lias iiioraised 12" per tcn-t d u r i n g the last flvo yars., IK- cording? to a uu-rvey in ado by th-o American Research Fouii'dat-ion and announced hero. The survey llgiw-cs dt not represent luereus-o in (he number of trucks and tractors on farms but ishow tlie in- croaae In total horse-power 'hours idon-o })' such oquipmont. It. showed a do- crease of moro than 13 per c u n t in 4iorsepowcr hours' hy work animals, such -£.s -horses and muls on forma during- the last five years. The qurvey says: "In 1024 horses and nvulog :uro credited with 9,4-10,, 000,000 horsopoweT hours but in 11)1:9 this fell to 3,140,000.000 while trucks and 't raptor 3 performed 2,050.000,000 horsopowar hours in 1024 as compared With 8,700,000,000 In 1D29. Work dono \:y power equipment othw than irn-cka an-d -traces wus 4,030,000,000 horsepower hours in 1024 white In 1929 it had lroppod Lo 3,680,000,000. "This Increased us« ot ,po\v-ev ecjuip- nvent has caused the American Ear-min- to become a ol-os-o student of automotive 'problems, an-d today he gets far more efflcbut work out o£ his equipment than lie -did five years ago. For Instance It has be«n generally tits-covered by fannr.s that the lubrication - of his trucks ami tractors is. a far different problom than that of h'ia passenger Hiii'tojnoblle. He has found that while he changes to a h-eavl-er oil In bis passKMig-or car at 2, 000 . miles, with the 'truck it. Is usually necessary to «hango to n, h-eavior oil after it ha.s l,»eon driven 500 to 1,000 mi!«a and that a tractor tieocls a heavier oil after 200 hows of operation. Similarly, whereas the- average passenger car needs a still heavier oil at aboti't 12,000 niilos, the truck needs heavier oil diet a(. a mileage of from 7,000 to 0,000. "The Kant North Cent nil Stales, composed of Ohio, I n d i a n a , Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin lead in the use of truck-! unil tractors, as gauged by work done in these states, doing 51 . jvereen-tage of the total' horse power work on their farms w i t h t h i s k i n d of power equipment. ' "The South Atlantic States rank second w i t h -10 por cent; the New K n g l n n d Stales conies next with 4,0' per cent although the actual amount of .work lone on farms i.s .smaller than n n y other section of tins United 3-tutes. The Pacific Coast Slates of \V,;'shlng- ton, Oregon anl California nuik fourth with 44 per cent and the- Middle Atlantic. ranks fifth with ·»:'. ter cent. "Considering the country as a ·whole, tfucke and tractorn performed 88 per cent of the work done on f a r m s In 1.129 as cornpa.roc! with 18 'per cent in 1924."

The dynamite was placed between the narrow ga\ige tracks of the private railroad owned by the Glen Aldni Cnel Company at a point midvvay ho-twoon Hanover and Warrior Hun. A -wire- ran from the explosive several hundred feet into the surrounding- AVOO!S where the robbers, believed to 'be four in number, had arranged a protective. of sand bags. A radio (·! battery was used to explode the dynamite. It was lale yesterday afternoon when tho pay c;r, ordinarily a first aid mine car, started from the Trues- dalo colliery bearing; the paymaster and his crew, for the Glen- Alden Coal Company's t u n n e l No. 20. Tlit car was drawn by a i-mall electric, locomotive. -· Bolted to the bottom oE the pay car was an Iron box containing the niouoy, which was arranged in layers--each layer of. money being covered w i t h a heavy Iron sheo-l. Slowly the pay car was drawn up the side oC N e w p o r t Mountain, toward tho tnivnol m o u t h , where hundreds ol miners were awaiting their fortnight-.,-, ly salary. Tho bandits watched -from behind their sandbag aheltoi 1 and after tho electric e n g i n e had passed over the hidden dynmulte, they touched tho wire to the batt'iry. There WAS a t i - r r i f i u concussion and debris was hurled in all directions as tho mine ear wa s blown to bits, Tho iron money box was shattered and the paper currouicy v i r t u a l l y snowed on the mountainsid". Three of Urn p a y r o l l crew wero killed instantly, They were: A r t h u r C.' Webb, 32, Sci'anton, paymaster in charge; Frank Budz'uiskt, 40, miner, of. Plymouth, atnl Martin Burns, 31, section foreman of Hanovfer township. The f o u r t h victim, James' Shcvlin, o2, a. section foreman of Hanover -township, died in a Uospital, with a fractured skull. B o f l i his legs were b l o w n off. · Six others on the payroll car u n d engine were i n j u r e d , two seriously. The engine, Us coupling broken, ran' wild d o w n tho mountain-side, f i n a l l y j u m p i n g the t r u c k at a sharp curve. Meanwhile, t l i e bundlts ran from behind the barricade toward tlm pay car. As they approached the wreckage, J o h n Sookil, 50, a Plymouth miner, daned a n d i n j u r e d , rose-to his feet and started toward what remained of tho money chest. One oC tho rolibers shouted: "Stop! Get a way from there!" But Sookil staggered on, Unnerved the robbers t u r n e d and (led into the woods. Po.lice my the dynamiters ran into the n e a r b v h a m l e t of Warrior Kun and escaped in their w a i t i n g automobile. Fosses were Cormed last n i g h t to search the en t h o countryside ;with instructions to bring in tho bandits dead or alive. It wn^ believed (he band I t s headed toward the New York line, t h r o u g h Sc'rant'-n, over tho Bingham- f o u ( u r u p i k e . Officials of tho Glen Alden Coal Company said :hat all but ?;!,000 of the $."u,0()0 in :ho pay car had bep-n recovered. SEMATOR GRUNDY BACKS DEEPENING OF YOUGH RIVER Continued from Pago One, c u l t u r a l projects of tho community will be present. "As soon as the project is complete." Wyant said, "it- will have :i potential tonnage of 5,000,000 tons a year." In addition to support from Senators Reed and Gruruly; tho Yoiighlo- gheny improvement project has boo.n indorsed by Allegheny county's flve members in Congrens. Because of the particular locality, Wyant and Congre'ssimen. S. A. Konditll and Clyde Kelly have been most active in fathering the scheme. Now that the Ohio River Improvement has been completed, the Ycuigh- iogheny project 1st hold to bo the most Important proposal so far aa Western tannsylvanla is concerned to come before the engineers. Some time will bo necessary; for them to report .to Congress, but once thla is dono and tho report ia favorable, as Pennsylvania leaders'expect it to be, prompt action on legislation to authorize the improvement will bo Bought. Grundy's views were given in a letter addressed to Congressman Wyant and read as follows: "Thank ; you for calling; my attention to the program for improving the Youghiogheny River and to the hearing to be held In Plttsbnrg this month to promote this project. I am intensely Interested in the general subject of waterway development and In t h i s project p a r t i c u l a r l y as one of several which to my mind are necessary to the fullest use of our economic resources, "If I t ' w o r e possible ! should like to attend the Plttaburg meeting, As my new duties will keep mo here, 1 hope you will accept, this letter na an ovidE-ncc ot my desire to lend every assistance to those who are doing so much ' t o encourage tho slackwaterlng of our streams. " W i t h the completion oC I he Ohio and Monongahela river projects and the development of the Allegheny, wo may well give serious y t u d y to t h e i r tributaries with a view of bringing them e v e n t u a l l y i n t o a slngh? w a t e r w a y system of service to all of Western Pennsylvania. The development of thej Youghiogheny, Beaver, Slvmnngo and Mahoning rivers n a t u r ally w i l l come first and we should also look f o r w a r d , I t h i n k , to connecting Lake Krlo w i t h the Ohio .Tliv- c.v as 7iarl of the general scheme. ' H will require the u n i t e d energies of our people to b r i n g t h i s about, bin if our legislators, our civic or gtt'.ilzatlons and our Industries will cooperate to tills end, 1 ,am sure t h a t it can bo done and that the resultt will more than J u s t i f y tho time and ?lfort required to convert the vision iulo a reality."
