FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 1339. 1'HE DATt,Y COT7RIER. CONNELLSVILLE. PA. i-AGE SEVEN. Railroads Must Install Stokers On Locomotives Grew Seeks to Salvage Freighter After Collision CLEVELAND, Mar. 3.--A three- Judge Federal court ruled the Nation's railroads must install automatic ctokers on all modern coal burning locomotives. Approximately 180 railroads had sued to enjoin the Interstate Commerce Commission from enforcing its order of December 27, 1937. They contended the installation would cost $39,000,000 or more. Railroad brotherhoods advocated the stokers in hearings which began as long ago as 1931. A railroad authority said the order ·would apply in general to "practically all the locomotives now used on main lines," but those o£ branch lines would not be affected. The court, composed of Judges Florence E. Allen, Charles H. Simons and Frank J. Kloeb, heard the case last fall, and saw brotherhwod motion pictures intended to show that firemen needed more time on other duties. The order specified that 20 per cent of the locomptives be equipped with automatic stokers each year for five rears, beginning July 1, 1938. H. F.
