Muiic By Rhythm Ramblers Kibler Gains Demo Support For Congress SALISBURY, Md, —C/P) — A quiet campaign was reported under way today to get J. Thomas Kibler to run for the Democratic nomination for Congress from Maryland's First District, on the Eastern Shore. Kibler has been prominent in baseball on the_ shore, and for many years was director of athletics or ,ead coach at Washington College in Chestertown. The Salisbury Times reported legislative delegations from Kent, Queen Anne's and Cecil counties want Kibler to make the race. So far. it was understood, Kibler has given them no answer. He is expected to decide after his would- be sponsors have had a chance to check sentiment with other shore delegations at Annapolis in the next two or three days. Kibler himself declined to talk about it. The First District seat now is held by Edward T. Miller, Easton Republican, who is expected to run for his third term. Herman Y. Broomhall, also of Chestertown, has announced he will be a candidate for the Democratic nomination. Hamilton P. Fox Jr., state's attorney for Wicomico county, also is a prospective candidate. Kibler, 65, is widely known on the Eastern Shore. As a baseball scout, he Is credited with turning up two major league stars—Jake Flowers, now a coach with Cleveland, and Bill Nicholson of the Phillies. Kibler formerly was president of the Class D Eastern Shore Baseball League. He recently resigned as a scout for the Phillies and decided to resume an earlier job as head baseball coach at Washington College.

I forgot to order sonic Mason's Milk Many new, all-time operating efficiency records for freight train operations were established on the Baltimpre and Ohio Railroad during 1951, it was reported today by W. C. Baker, vice president in charge of operation and maintenance. For the third straight year running, the B & O set a new high for its 125-year history in "gross freight train'oad." The new record figure was 2943 tons, compared with the previous (1950) record of 2695 tons—an improvement of 248 tons, or more than nine per cent. Net trainload—that is the "pay load" of freight—stood at a record high ofi 1474 tons in 1951. This figure was 155 tons above the previous all- time record of 1319 tons, set in 1950. "Another important efficiency record that was established last year was for 'gross ton-miles per hour of crew time.'" Baker said. "This Is, in effect, a combined measurement of the efficiency of the train crew and the equipment. For 1951, this figure-stood at 32,643 ton-miles, an increase of more than 3.000 ton-miles, or about 11 per cent, over the previous all-time record of 29,421 in 1949." Baker attributed the new efficiency records of the road largely to the increased use of niesel power. During 1951, the B & O increased its Diesel fleet from 529 units to 596 units. Thirty additional Diesel units have been put into operation since January 1, and 69 more units are on order. By the end of this year, the B & O will have a Diesel fleet of 695 units, not counting those of its subsidiary companies, the B & O Chicago Terminal Railroad and the Staten Island Rapid Transit Railway.
