Bicentennial fire hydrants
It took a while, but the Fire department in Albany, N.Y. has at last
tired of the bicentennial, and called for the abolishment of bicenten-
nial fire hydrants. The problem is fire fighters can't tell if they're
pulling up to a hydrant or a cutesy minute man statue. To eliviate con-
fusion, the department wants the hydrants re-ainted according to a
color code based on water availability: red for less than 500 gallons
per minute, orange for 500 to 1000, and green for 1000 plus. Looks like
the last traces of the spirit of '76 have been extinguished.
On the outside .. .
... it will be another fine fall day. Temperature will hit the upper
60s tomorrow, with partly cloudy skies (or partly sunny skies for all
you optimists). The low will be in the 40s.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Freight and
commuter rail service was halted at
least temporarily across most of the
country yesterday as clerks on strike
against a Virginia-based railroad ex-
panded their picketing to 43 other lines.
The striking Brotherhood of Railway
and Airline Clerks said that early mor-
ning picketing had shut down or cur-
tailed operations at two-thirds of the
nation's majorhrailroads, affecting
every part of the nation except the
heavily-traveled Northeast corridor.
Service thqre was reported normal.
According to union estimates, more
than 330,000 of the nation's half-million
railroad workers honored picket lines
and stayed off the job, leaving more
than 100,000 morning commuteks
stranded and idling millions of tons of
freight.
THE HARDEST hit area of the coun-
try appeared to be around Chicago,
where picketing of passenger lines for-
ced up to 100,000 commuters to find
other means of getting to work.
The union said the picketing was

aimed at companies that had been len-
ding equipment and personnel to the
strikebound Norfolk & Western
Railway, based in Roanoke, Va.
Union President Fred Kroll said in a
statement that the picketing was inten-
ded to "bring increasing pressure" on
the N&W to settle a contract dispute
with the union, which struck the
railroad on July 10.
Industry lawyers, contending the
picketing was illegal, went to federal
courts wherever there were pickets.
They obtained temporary injunctions in
several locations ordering the picketing
to stop.
CHIEF JUSTICE Warren Burger
refused yesterday to block picketing
over financial aid, clearing the way for
the union to escalate its strike to 73
railroads.
Burger's decision, while not a final
ruling in the dispute, was a victory for
the union, which has sought to pressure
Sother railroads that have been con-
tributing a total of $800,000 a day to the
N&W under a mutual aid pact.

SERGIO LEONE'S 1967

Western" is a bloody tale of fisticuffs, stolen loot, double-
crossing and gimlet-faced cowboys. Immensely popular and
good reason. Clean your guns for this one. With ELI WALLACH
and LEE VAN CLEEF.
