Comfortable because it breathed. Dried absolutely wrinkle-free in just 2 hours flat. Well, it still does all that. But now it does more. It stretches. And then springs back to perfect shape. And that means real comfort. All over. Still in 100% polyester tricot and polyester tricot blends. Now in the latest patterns and solids. »n°° -Arrow* Piasa Corners Wilshire Village MIIM E. Alton OpMN(M.&Fri. 'Til 9P.M. Six Edwardsville crossings Alton Evening Telegraph Wednesday, August 30« 1972 A-3 Hearings open on rail hazards EDWARDSVILLE -State Sen. Sam M. Vadalabene of Edwardsville will be among those testifying before the Illinois Commerce Commission hearings, which began today in Springfield, concerning protection at six railroad crossings in Edwardsville. "I am confident that at last we are going to have positive action. I have been pressing for such action to alleviate these hazardous conditions since February of 1969 and I believe the people of Edwardsville, by their letters which strikes in the early years of life. Many who do not contract the disease cdn also carry it. The book, published by Merkle Printing Co., is dedicated to Phyllis Weaver and Mrs. Marilyn Whittington and is Buford's first published work. B u f o r d started writing poetry in high school and continues his interest in it while studying business and journalism at Washington University. "I've had some work published in the school paper and in IMPACT (Alton's black community newspaper), but this book is my first," he said. Merkle printed 200 copies of the book and Buford said tho money earned above tlvj printing costs will go to the side cell foundation. and petitions, are to be commended for demonstrating a clear example of 'people power'," Vadalabene said Tuesday, prior to the first of the hearings. The crossings involved are Hillsboro Avenue, Chapman Avenue, Schwarz Street, Brown Street, Wolf Street and Terry Ave. In all cases, except Terry Ave., the commerce commission is being petitioned to designate the existing grade crossing as "extra hazardous" and to direct the ins t a 11 a t i o n of automatic protection at each of the five crossings. In the case of Ihe hearing on Terry Street, the City of Edwardsvillo i s seeking permission to open a new road through from the .site of the N. 0. Nelson School to Hoppe Park, but are not requesting protection devices for a crossing. Hearings on Hillsboro Avenue. Chapman Avenue, Brown Street. Wolf Street and Terry Avenue began today and will continue Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. The hearing on the crossing at Schwarz and Springer streets has been postponed until October at the request of the Norfolk & Western Railroad, to allow time for the completion of a study presently underway. The City of Edwardsville is asking that costs of the protective devices be divided among the parties —the city, the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Co. and the Norfolk and Western Railroad Co. — and that a portion of the cost of installation be borne by the grade crossing protection fund of the motor fuel tax fund. Several of the crossings in the past have been the scene fatal — auto - train crashes, fatal — auto-train cranes, notablv Wolf Street, Brown Street. Sen wan Street and Hillsboro Avenue. During the past 12-month period, an SIU student was killed at the Wolf Street crossing. The most recent serious accident occurred .July 17 at the Hillsboro crossing when a car driven by Larry Suhre of Edwardsville was struck by a northbound Chicago & Northwestern train.
