Waihburn How About Thot • Second Underpass on Missouri Pacific? Last Tuesday the 1 Missouri Pa fie Lines announced it would kptrid $8,381,910 improving und ex vpandlng the system properly, an If unstated portion of it scheduled for ff Arkansas. •Tho announcement indicatcc jSome of the money will go into Uttdditional trackage nt the North "ilttle Rock terminal and for siding bridge repairs elsewhere. Everyone rejoices in the "Mop's" financial comeback, and the fact the railroad is finally due to •c discharged, from its long receivership into the hands of its reorganized company. But without being picayunish I would like to point out that the Missouri Pacific also has a pretty large unpaid bill held against it by some of the communities it serves — notably Hope. Its passenger station occupies part of Division street, and the re- ultant traffic congestion down .own is further complicated by endless blocking of grade crossings as trains arrive and depart, not to mention the outlandish traffic-blocks which occur when the yard crews fire up tho switch- engine and begin shuffling freight cars. All this is a necessary part of railroading, of course, but so is a reasonable amount of movement .necessary for the people and bus- 1 Sinesscs domiciled in our town. This squawk is an old one in Missouri Pacific's ears. But they arc indeed singularly deaf ears. The only time we ever got any action out of the railroad was during the war years when it attempted to lay a double track on the west .side of town and Mayor Albert Graves and the city council stopped it with the city police — until the railroad agreed to help ^.construct a street underpass on the west side. That underpass wasn't centrally located, but it was the best we could get at the time. As I recall, the railroad installed a cen- tcr support creating a divided- lane underpass with the understanding that big trusses would be put in eliminating the divided roadway just as soon as steel became available. Also, the debate, •nyer that west-side underpass put *the railroad on notice that sooner or later it would have to face up to the necessity of building a second underpass on the east side of town where important industries lie. Either this or Hope would have to build a second fire station north of the tracks. The years have gone by and we have heard nothing about either new steel for the old underpass or the building of a new one on the If, east side. The latter now has become a critical isstiR because sev- eial new industries have settled in the 'old Southwestern Proving Ground area and a serious traffic snarl has developed downtown bo- cause of long stoppages at the railroad's safety gates. Heretofore we have to argue our case with the representatives of a St. Louis federal court which was concerned only with the fight # between the railroad's bondholders and stockholders (which, incidentally, the bondholders won). But now that the fight has been settled and surplus funds are beginning to appear Hope should rise up and demand that the second underpass be built and the first one, as pledged, be improved to eliminate the dangerous double roadway. I'd say this looks like the top project before Mayor John ll Wilson, Jr., and the City Council I*as we enter upon a new year.

SO, Itlt — »,«« Respectable Tronf Banked Brink's Loot BOSTON, l/pv— Unconfirmed reports said today the $1,219.00 loot from the Brink's robbery of Jan. 17, lOSO, may have been placed in safe deposit boxes in various banks by a respectable Boston man acting as a "front" for the robbers. The FBI refused to comment on the report of how the loot was hidden after the daring evening robbery but three Boston papers report today a lawyer was chosen by the gang to secret the cash. The reports said the gang's plan called for the lawyer to hire some 40 safe deposit boxes in banks throughout the country where the money could be placed by him without suspicion. The newspapers added that the lawyer's identity has been known to investigators for some time and said that he has been under sur- veilance for many months and is expected to be brought in for questioning in a few clays. A 'grand jury investigating the Brink's robbery recessed last Monday and is scheduled to resume next Monday. The reports continued that the FBI has traced $236,500 of the Brink's cash to some of the vaults and that about $30,000 of the lool was used to buy government bonds. Another unconfirmed report said three men died before they could be questioned by the FBI in connection with the Brink's case. Two of the men were slain and the third died of a heart at- Presbyterians Plan Christian Student Night Christian student night Will be observed at the First Presbyterian Church Sunday night at 5 o'clock.

O'Brien, Rhode Island diner owner who was slain May 17; George R. Killeen, South Boston gangster, shot to death outside an all-night restaurant a halt mile from Brink's headquarters; and Louis (The Pig) Uva, Boston bookie who died while hiding out at the home o£ relatives to avoid questioning in Killeen's death. The FBI shrugs off questions relating to the Brink's robbery investigation with a curt "no comment." Burglar Gels $200 From Local Law Off ice The law office of WoisonberRer and Wilson was broken into sometime Christmas and the burglar got some $200.80 from a filing cabinet, City Police reported today. Royce Wciscnbergcr is deputy prosecuting attorney and John Wilson is mayor of Hope. Chief of Police Willis said the office door in the First National Bank Building had been pried open as was tho filing cabinet. One envelope contained $60.80 which Mr. Weisenborger had collected for the sheriff's office. Another contained $140, the $100 bill being a Christmas present for Mr. Weiscnbergcr's mother. A check and some small change was not disturbed. The burglary took place sometime between 8 p.m. Christmas eve and about 9 a.m. Friday. Otherwise officers reported a vory quiet Christmas in this area. Stalin's Offer Is Eyed Suspiciously; Ike Has ,Own Plan to Force Pea "I STARTED TO PRAY—'? Waymond K.

The New York Times on Dec. 18 submitted to tho Russian Embassy here several questions to be forwarded to Stalin. The timing of the answers may have been accidental but, from the viewpoint of Russian propagandists, was excellent. The answers were delivered to the Times late Christmas Eve night. Because the Times is a morning paper, the Stalin story had to appear in the Christmas morning editions. And, with news usually scarce Christmas Day, a Stalin statement was bound to get maxl mum attention. It did. And, since Christmas is the one Continued on Page Two crage rice and cotton crops.
