Asks Change Of Venue in Injury Suit SPRINGFIELD, III. (Special)— The Southern Railroad Co. lias asked the Illinois Supreme Court to compel the city court of Granite City by mandamus to transfer a $68,000 personal injury suit by an employe to a circuit court in Illinois. ' The railroad claims the Granite court lacks venue. A motion asking leave to file a mandamus petition will be acted on by the high court at its September term. The employe, Paul F. Estes Jr., Knoxville, Tenn., seeks a judgment for damages as a result 'of injuries and for court costs. He was employed by the railroad as a car helper In the railroad's yard at Knoxville, Tenn., and claims he suffered the injuries on July 6, 1959, while inspecting cars there. Estes said lie fell and tripped over an old door end of a gondola car.

Around Springfield Presidency Is Question in Illinois Race IJy TOM Telegraph SPRINGFIELD - A question being posed mote and more for Republican gubernatorial candidate is: Which presidential candidate' for the 1964 nomination •, do you support? The man who was the GOP presidential candidate, Richard Nixon, Is scheduled to come to Chicago Sept. 12, for a speech ahd visits with Illinois Republicans, lil the past, each time Nixon came to Illinois, one man always on hand to greet him was Secretary of State Charles f. Carpentier. There are indications now that Carpentier may be in Chicago Sept. 12, If all arrangements for that Nixon visit are confirmed. However, Carpentier himself is non-committal on how he personally feels now about any of the prospective candidates for the presidential nomination. But one thing Is sure: Caitfenlier and Nixon arc the best of personal friends. They often visit one another and correspond regularly. Previously, another gugernator- lal hopeful, Hayes Robertson, the chairman of the Cook County GOP committee, declared himself solidly behind Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona. The third gubernatorial GOP candidate, Charles Percy of Kenllworth, who has taken a leave of absence from his duties as chairman of the board of Bell & Howell, also said he favored Goldwater, but left a door open for other candidates. No one has yet taken any supporting stand for Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York. Of course, there may well be other candidates for that GOP top mon- ination and the three announced Illinois gubernatorial candidates acknowledge as much. Carpentier's announcement Aug. 4 in his hometown of East Moline provided the best carnival- like, political show so far this year. That was the opinion of most newsmen attending, but each who had such an opinion, hastened to add that this was intended only as an objective comment. Marching bands, parades, flags, minting, balloons, pretty girls as cheer leaders, horns, whistles, nolse-mnking rattlers, gaily colored hats and matching sashes and signs, all saying "Charlie's Our Boy," put enough color in the bafkground. The bands seemed to take (heir cue from flic signs nnd , Pearson told newsmen day tie may discuss the draft with WB cabinet next week. on her way to ATLANTIC City and the Miss America Pageant . . .
