Estes Jr., Knoxville, Tenn., for damages because of injuries suffered in the railroad's Knoxville, Tenn., yard on July 6, 1959. Estes, a car helper, said his injuries were caused when lie fell and tripped over an old door-end of a gondola car. The railroad appeal is from the lower court's dismissal of a motion to transfer the case to an llinois Circuit Court because the railroad does not have an operation in Granite City. The lowei court held in has jurisdiction, because the company maintains a shipping contact, similar to such contracts in other states. The suil was filed May 7, 1962, under the Federal Employers Liability Act 63 Alton Slate Patients Have Annual Gating Sixty-eight veteran patients of Spruce Cottage at Alton State Hospital had their annual nil-day outing Thursday at the 0 n i z e d Club grounds in Godfrey.
