A hearing on the discontinuance before hearing examiner Robert Heinecamp concluded late Thursday. The Burlington Railroad asked the ICC for permission ,to drop the trains nearly two years ago. The railroad contended it was osing $65,000 to $70,000 per year on the trains.

The trains invilved, Nos. 15 and 2, make 10. local stops between Chicago and Galesburg. Heinecamp has said that if the ICC approves the discontinuance, it also will hold the Burlington to its pledge to halt the Denver Zephyr at Mendota, Princeton and Kewanee.

Galesburg Register-Mail, Golesburo Friday, June 23, j H% 1 23 Train Clips Feed Truck ALPHA-'-An Alpha man was not believed seriously injured after a train clipped the feed truck he was driving this morning and turned it over. Reported in "good" condition at Cottage Hospital was Harry Lelaind Paul, 45, of Alpha.

The accident occurred about 10 a. m. nine miles north of Galesburg on U.S. 150, where the North Henderson blacktop joins the highway. • , Paul was southbound with a load of feed, headed for Quincy, when the truck's left rear, was struck by the westbound freight.

The present system allows for a flat 5 per cent discount as reimbursement for ^collecting the state taxes on cigarettes. Under the legislation passed and sent to Gov. Otto Kerner, the 5 per cent discount would be offered to dealers who collected less than $700,000 in taxes a year but dealers who collected $1,400,000 would get only 4 per cent. A 3 per cent discount would be allowed on succeeding $700,000 amounts collected after $1,400,000. Sponsors said the smaller discounts for ^collecting the larger amounts of taxes would keep large cigarette dealers from getting a competitive advantage over their smaller distributors, _J6-M | 7,88 ! 4.84 i 8,88 BLIND AD BOX RENTAL tneplitt Mailed Out-of-town) 80s Card ol fhanka In MemoriaiA* Lodga Notices ^ 1 -Inch et > im J ts.oo DEADLINE Monday through Friday 10:00 A.M.
