Entertainment -- Lois Fuehrer, Bar- Trains in Experiment STATE COLLEGE, Mar. 17.--An icicle hanging in a tunnel caused failure in one ol the first experiments in automatic train control shortly after the Civil War. A glass bulb attached to the air brake system was mounted atop the locomotive, and arms were attached to the roadside signals. If the engineer passed a signal set at stop, the arm broke the bulb which stopped the train. The system worked well until a passenger train passing through the Gallitzen tunnel, near Altoona, was brought to an abrupt j halt when an icicle broke the bulb. According lo H. Hadley Waters, assistant professor of economics at the Pennsylvania Slate College, who ! is an authority on transposition, j this icicle brought to an end one of the first mechanical systems designed to avoid the dangers of failure on the part of the locomotive engineer. Ice also caused railroad men to discard another method of automatic train control. This consisted of a special rail mounted beside the track to operate a trip lever on the locomotive if the signal was set at stop. In winter, however, sufficient ice accumulated on the ramp rails to .trip the lever. From these experiments, Professor Waters said, was developed the present foolproof system used on virtually all main line trackage. Today's system employs electric current transmitted through the rails and picked up by a special apparatus on By PAULMALLON bara Humphrey, Patty Dunkle and the front of the locomotive.

Woodrum prevented a direct aftermath, but the incident will not do Mr. Roosevelt's relief bill any good. Able, knowing Representative Fred Crawford of Michigan was debating furiously on the local milk investigation-- "Mr. Speaker," he shouted, "isn't it true that Mayor LaGuardia took the bull by the horns in New York and reduced milk to eight cents quart!" A round of laughter ensued from those who doubted that LaGuardia good as he is, could have worked it in quite that indirect manner. Crawford realized what caused the laughter. He then eliminated the reference from the record. if the engineer fails to respond to a stop signal. Western railroads erect a specia wire fence beside the track. The fence is connected to a signal system If a snow or rock slide hits the fence, all signals are automatically set at danger. Eooms 7 and 32 Join.
