He bumped The Decatur Review Six Evenings Sunday morning DECATUR NEWSPAPERS. INC of the division. In this respect the Wabash is more fortunate than some roads in that it is supported by various types of freight.

Some of the roads are known only as coal roads and some of the western roads known as grain roads. The Wabash can no longer be referred to as coal roads nor can it be called a grain road but it gets in on most all classifications of freight and ranks about the second or third -heaviest automobile-moving road in the country. John Baxter Dies John Baxter, assistant chief en-zineer of the Wabash died in St Louis Thursday. Mr. Baxter, who was about 55 years old, had been suffering for several weeks with a severe attack of heart trouble and had also just recovered from an attack of pneumonia.

He was formerly division engineer at Peru and entered the service of the company many years ago. For a time he was out of the service but returned to the Wabash in 1918. Tourists to Mexico City on all-expense tours conducted by the American Railway Express com pany have been quietly boosting Wabash passenger business in re cent months. These tours start from Chicago each Sunday. After being in effect some time the business grew to the point where it required an extra car on the Banner limited.

The business continued growing until two cars at tached to the Banner each Sunday was a common thing. Last Sun day three extra cars were added to the train. Closed Saturday All railroad freight houses will be closed Saturday in observance of Washington's birthday. The local agents ask that Decatur shippers take note of this. Baltimore Sc Ohio is finding it necessary to use some of its section men to remove ice from water tanks along the road.

During the continued cold ice froze to a thickness of two feet inside the This decreased the capacity of some tanks to the extent that whenever a double-header came to one of them and took water, it emptied the tank. Need Grain Cars. The chief worry of railroad car distributors and freight agents at present is not a shortage of coal cars, but a shortage of grain cars. Local distributors and agents have been scratching their yards and sid ings and also their heads in a search for empty grain cars and cannot fill the demand from coun try elevators and the local milling industry. Frozen ground has caused rails in the Morgan street crossing of the Wabash to rise to an abnormal position in the last few days and workmen were busy Friday morn ing lowering some of these rails.

Herriott Defends Russia In Plea for Soviet Pact PARIS (AP) France's former Premier Edouard Herriot lent his support today to ratification of the Franco-Soviet mutual assistance pact, defending the Soviet Union before the Chamber of Deputies as a bulwark of European peace. The attitude of the former president of the dominant Radical Socialist party, however, contrasted sharply to that of Jacques Doriot, former leader of the French Communist party, who denounced the Soviet Union as a subversive force. The debate on proposed ratification of the pact by the Chamber the last step necessary to make it effective was adjourned until next Wednesday after these two speeches.

Cook Landowners Ask Sessions to Cut Levies SPRINGFIELD (UP) Request for a fourth special session of the Illinois General Assembly to aid Cook county property owners was before Gov. Henry Horner today for his consideration.

The request was submitted yesterday by H. H. Haylett and Lester Porter of the Chicago real estate board at a conference with Alexander Wilson, administrative assistant to Horner. They proposed legislation which would entitle Cook county taxpayers to an average reduction of about 10 per cent in their 1934 real estate bills. It was contended that the levy in Cook county is too high.

Different kinds of freight business' affect different portions of the Wabash and that is -why that portion known as the north end between Decatur and Chicago is what might be termed a "race track" just at present. Coal is chiefly the cause. While other parts of the road are doing a good business in other classes of freight, most of the coal hauled in here from the mines south and west is going right on to Chicago. About four drags a day are taking a huge volume of fuel in that direction. Every few days there appears a bulletin advertising new through freight turns among the north end train and enginemen and still more are necessary.

Now the latest bulletin announces two more cars or cabooses added to the north end pool which will make 18 train crews in the north pool. These cars are bulletined for bids to Feb. 26. There are about the same number of crews in the engine pool and this is an increase of about 50 per cent in the number of crews in both pools. Added to this, the trains on the north end are now so thick that it has been necessary to open up more telegraph jobs at the six stations along the north end to facilitate the movement of these trains.

Second trick operators have been on during the rush at Foosland and Saunemin while Ballou has been reopened with a man put on there at night Other districts of the Decatur division are doing a good business but not on such an increased scale as the north end. Just at present the automobile movement is not so heavy but by the time the coal business for the north end has dwindled the auto rush is likely to be back and then the crews on the east, south and west end will be rushed again. Of course the south end is really getting in on the coal movement along with the north end since most of the coal EXTRA TONIGHT: ONE.
