The railroad claimed the Gran- 'te City city court lacked venue, that the company had no railroad operation in Granite City. The lower court held against a venue motion. City Judge Fred P. Schuman ruled the railroad, while it had no operation in Granite City, did maintain person- el in the city for the purpose of soliciting business and that this eolicitation through its Granite City contact "constituted a "doing of business" sufficient justify no change of venue. The' personal injury suit was by Paul F. Estes Jr., Knoxville, Tenn. who sought damages for injuries and for court costs as a result of an accident he claims occurred in the Knoxville yards on July 6, 1959, where he was employed as a car helper. The accident happened as he fell and tripped over an old door end of a gondola car. Estes filed in the Granite City Court under the Federal Employ ers Liability Act on May 7, 1962. , .

Ink The Wood River City Council [Monday night examined five gar liage and trash hauling bids by «'iitside contractors but no immediate action was taken. The council indicated it would ftct on the matter at .a specia meeting next Monday. The council had asked bidders to submit bids on both a three and five-year basis and also asked that the contractor purchase the city's garbage hauling equipment at a cost of $25,000. While discussing the matter the contractors — for the most part — indicated that they could give bet- ler bids if they would not have to absorb the city's equipment. One bidder in fact lopped of 134,000 fi-om his bid over the five- year period, which means if the equipment were just left to stand, the city would be $9,000 better off than to require that contractor to purchase the equipment. The general feeling of the con- tactors was that they did not want the equipment, which brought about the council's de cision to allow them to subm additional bids excluding pur chase of the city equipment. Bids submitted by the contrac ors Monday night, which include purchase of the city's equipmen listing the three-year bid, followe by the 'five-year bid, shows: Mic west Sanitary Service — $67,760 $67,944.; Modern Utilities, Inc. of Belle vil)e - $74,960.,$71,268; Unitet Disposal Service, St. Louis ~ $75,036., same for five-year bid Suburban Haulers, Jnc., St. Loui — $76,800, and the same for fiv< years; St. Louis Disposal Servici - $92,280., $81,600. In a supplementary report t( the garbage bids prepared bj City Manager Carlton Laird, i was noted that for the city's 1963 'iscal year which ended April 30 the city paid $94,423 to haul gar bage and trash, not including social security and retiremen costs on the employes doing the work, which adds another $5,300 GODFREY BEAUTY SALON in Godfrey Foodshop Building. 2 Beauticians to Serve You/ it DOROTHY HILL * BETTY JOHNSON SPECIAL!
