Streamlined Engine Plunges
This Diesel locomotive of the Baltimore and Ohio's streamlined "Shenandoah," enroute from Chicago to
New York, plunged through an open drawbridge at East Chicago, Ind., and upended in the Indiana Harbor
ship canal, carrying the engineer, trapped in forward c ab, to death. Railroad men said that the engineer had
reversed the engine's wheels, preventing greater traged y. The cars behind, including the power cab, were de-
railed, but no one else was injured.

Will Give Talk
At Union Forinn
Globe-Trotter John Elliot
Will Speak On France,
And War Wednesday
John Elliot, the New York Herald-;
Tribune's globe-trotting foreign cor-t
respondent since 1924. will come to
the Midwest of America for the first:
time next week to present a lecturet
-"France In The War"-at 4 p.m.
Wednesday in the Michigan Union.
His talk will be the first of the fall
series of the Union Forum.
Saw Fall Of France
A veteran newsman who has worked
in almost every European capital.
Elliot was in Paris at the fall of
France in June, 1940. His daily files
to New York covered the armistice
with Germany, the experiment of the
popular front rule and the formation#
of the Vichy government.
The first American journalist to be
wounded in World War II, Elliot ar-
rived in the States last Saturday via
the Atlantic Clipper from Lisbon,
Portugal. He will remain in America
for several weeks before returning to
the war zone.
Draws On Experience
No superficial reporter who writes
analytical books on the war after a
week's survey, Elliot has witnessed the
fall of democracy in, both France and
Germany. An able linguist who se-
cures his news and facts firsthand,
he will draw upon a wealth of experi-
ence foi\ his talk here Wednesday.

LANSING, Dec. 4.-(P)-Killing off
that Allegan County deer herd, or at

The classified ad stunt isn't Buck's
only queer stunt on campus. Pub-

year, Buck signed up orchestra leader
Bob Chester and kept it a secret. His

popular band" had too many Dorsey
ballots, so Buck had to jam the ballot
box with. phony Chester votes.
It was 'Buck who got the Student
