French and one or two in-I@ Indian language.Candlesticks of immense propor-tions adorn the altar, made from thejewelry of the French and Spanishwomen. They. too, are works of art,beautifully molded and of pure goldand silver.It was difficult to select one homefrom the great number of extremelyold ones, for an inspection. In thetown is the oldest house in Missouri,the home of Louis Bolduc, who wasone of the leading merchants andtraders of the town. He formerlytook whiskey, furs and metals downthe Mississippi river to New Orleans.The trip took several weeks, floatingdown the river, but coming back theslaves had to row upstream and 12months were required. The house issaid to have been built in 1740. Atleast it was built on the first site ofthe town of Ste. Genevieve, and afterthe flood, was taken from its firstsite and placed in the town of Ste.Genevieve, the present location.where it stands today in a wonderfulstate of preservation. It is put togetherwith wooden pegs instead ofnails and its picturesque old fireplace.its long front porch and its shutteredwindows give it an air of romanceof olden days.We were privileged to step into thehome of Mr. Ton1 Rozier. who is oneof the last descendants of the oldRozier family. The home was oncethe Ste. Genevieve Academy, incorporatedin 1808. There higher educationwas taught by Mr. Firmin A.Rozier and he had pupils from theentire city and from outlying cen-ters. They might come to schooleach day, or remain there for the entireyear, and in looking over someof the old tuition records, we find thata year's tuition cost the pupil in thosedays around $60.00.Mr. Tom Roxier has not disturbedthe interior of the home and its fur-A "birds-eye" view of Ste.

Practically all thefurniture is either solid walnut, orcherry or mahogany. Huge canopiedbeds with quaint coverlets stand inthe bedrooms-old marble-slabbeddressers and washstands add a bit ofquaintness, and the chairs and picturesare old-timers from the daysof long ago. The collection of thebooks in the Rozier library wouldmake the book lover's heart skip aheat, and some of them are priceless,in fact, most of them are out of printand are of rare value. In each roomis a large open fireplace, and in imaginationone could see the women andmen of long ago in their simple dress,sitting before a fire, crackling withcedar and pine logs, discussing thetopics of the day.Mr. Rozier has parted with some ofthe furniture to antique hunters, buthe dislikes to sell any of it. Thereis much romance built around the oldhome, and with the aid of books anda history which his father left (forFermin Rozier was a historian andorator of note) he is attempting toset down some new and interestinghistorical facts and certainly in sucha setting it is an easy task.Nuch of the historical data whichis contained in this story wasgleaned from an address which hemade in honor of the 1.50th celehrationof the founding of Ste. Genevieveon .July 21. 1885, which gives the fullhistory of the city which, so thebooklet says, "is the first permanentsettlement in the United States, westof the Mississippi river."And last but not lea~t, Ste. Genevieve'simportant connecting linkwith the outside world is its railroads.The first one, the IllinoisSouthern, built by Mr. John R. Walsh,entered the city of Ste.

The~rds and lawns are well kept-the~ople are thrifty and neat, and theides1 brick house west of the Misrsippiriver stands on the southeastlrner of the square, in a most rezrkablestate of preservation. It isade of yellow clay b1-iclrs and wasscted in 1786. It was used as airrt house and when it was finallyfapleted, crowds came from milesat to the first court.

Above the tombstones, whichare crooked and moss covered, onefinds dates which read: "Born, July12, 1785, died July 31, 1860." and yetanother, "Born 1782, died 1861," andsome were so covered with moss andswept by sands and dirt that thedates were not legible. Above thetombstones sway graceful willowtrees, and beautiful greeu moss andgrass add to the beauty of the place.And so thrives the oldest city-thefirst settlement of permanency in theUnited States west of the YississippiRiver.

Theyfelt a warm glow of pride when theysaw the picture of the architect'sdrawing of the new station whichFrisco-Rock Island Lines will erect inOklahoma City, accompanying thephotograph of those dirty back yardsand poor houses.For months the two railroads andthe city comniissioners of OklahomaCity have worked on plans for thenew station which is to combine thepassenger, baggage, mail and expressfacilities of two great railroads intoone beautiful structure. Many obstaclesof physical and legal and financialnature had to be removed beforeactual construction on the stationcould begin.On July 1, 1930, a construction gangmade short work of razing the squattyhouses and cleaning the site, andwithin a few days the railroads' contractorswere oil the job with a largeforce of men.Actual work on Oklahoma City'sFrisco-Rock Island station had begun.Before the magnificent structure isflnished in March of 1931, one milliondollars will have been spent on thestation with its accompanying trainsheds and other facilities.The plans for the station specify aunit of three buildings closely united.The express, baggage and mail willbe taken care of in two separate buildingsfacing on Harvey and Hudsonstreets, and each of the structures willhave direct communication with themain station building and the streets.The entire structure will be facedwith coursed Ashler stone masonry,and the facade will be featured Ly acentral tower oC stone covered by adome.The building, in general, was notdesigned along the lines of a fixedhistorical style, we are told by thearchitects. Rather, the spirit of mode?nismwhich is entering the architecturalfield more strongly each yearcomprises the motif, and the buildingarchitecturally, will express thepurpose which it serves. The buildingwill not be entirely void of tradition,however, and in its design areembodied elements which are found inthe old California missions, as well asill the Mediterranean houses-all featuresskillfully blended and subordinatedto the general idea of a modern,convenient and hospitable railwaystation plant.The traveler arriving at the newstation will enter through a gracefuldriveway, which encircles a park stripornamented in floral design, leadingfrom Choctaw street to the entranceloggia. The loggia extends across thefront of the building, forming a delightfuloutdoor lobby, through whichare the entrances to the waitingrooms for each race. The roof willbe covered with variegated flashed panand cover tiling, extending over awide overhanging stone cornice, thewhole forming an ornamental bandacross the entire front. The schemewill blend with the variegated shadesof stone facing, giving a rich displayin light and shadow.Exceptional consideration has beengiven, because of climatic conditions,to excellent ventilation, and ceilingsin the waiting rooms are unusuallyhigh. This feature is also included inthe adjacent women's and men's restrooms, and men's smoking room.The ticket office will be situatedbetween the two waiting rooms (whiteand colored), and adequate telephoneand telegraph facilities, news stands,combination lunch and dining roomsand other quarters for the officers andattendants, are conveniently located.Baggage at the new station will bechecked direct from the main lobbyadjacent to the incline to trains, andthe mail, express and baggage willbe handled by elevators from theIbaggage will be delivered throuHudson street and the expr~through Harvey street.

At 8:he would paste on the several bulleiboardslittle news items clipped Ira*newspapers ancl magazines--each oscribing some accident due to negkor urging greater carefulness. T;Fmen began to clip and contribute thprown gleanings to be posted. The id^Iof safety took root.There followed a series of siogrridilating on the virtue of care nnd tlsinof neglect. Then a sort of saR!:game, begun by IClein and carried (#?rather spiritedly by his men. A vcriwas written on the bulletin board, ri 1letters following each other rertica9;or one beneath the other, lnstead Facross on a horizontal line.

Contributious began to flow in,r lint slowly but later in a stream.Before the slogan game was over alm+~tevery maG had tried his hand and~ome presented several bits to be.lasted up on the board."Some of them spent several nightsnilh their wives, children and :I dic-~lonary," said Klein. "before theyinally turned out something. And rempmberthis. All that while theyRere thinking about safety."Approximately 400 slogans werelorued 111 before interest waned. EveryI f o got ~ posted on the blackboards sohe other men could see.t After that came the songs. Thisforeman's idea is to have somethingt nm whenever possible so as to catchthe inagination of his men. So heI hit upon the scheme of song writing.Tke catchiness of the slogans gave; kim his start.He began to work out the words athis desk and in the evenings at home.He polished them here and there, tomke them simple, catchy and full ofhis safety theme. The lyrics done,l.! folded up the manuscript and*Sipped it off to his cousin, HenryBum, a musician of many yearsmding.It was really natural for Klein to. rurn to music in spite of the fact thathr has spent so many years in theSnidst of muscle-straining work, thedang aiid scrape and thump of box,?r loading that seemingly would onlydve inspiration for a regular and fullt night's sleep. His father, Frankn Klein, was a versatile music teacher#!own in Ste. Genevieve, 310. As a- !or Rudolph learned how to toot at, Yarn and played in orchestras andhnds until not more than a dozenrpara ago."Dad," said Klein, "was the pub-'irher of a German paper, 'Freieladler' or. 'Free Press.' That was' -hen I was a lad and we lived at Ste.hnevieve. He also was well known:r a music instructor and could playn :!nost anything that emitted a tune."I hustled copy and was his printer's'~ll when I was 11 years old. Yes,Y .'r, dad taught me something aboutI wit He was known as a composerp ii teacher all over that part of the'le."But Rudolph left home as a youthVICTORY COMES TO VICTOR!Victor Grace, Frisco time inspectorat Amory, Mississippi, made what hecalls "the catch of my life" in thewarm waters of Pensacola Bay late inJune. After tossing many dozen ofKing and Spanish mackerel into thebottom of his boat, Inspector Gracefelt a tug at the end of his h.eavy linethat was most assuredly not that ofthe ordinary variety of salt waterfish. For a time it looked as if Gracewould lose his rod and reel andheavy tackle, but "Victory came toVictor", and in the end he landed aman-eating shark six feet eight incheslong weighing 121 pounds. FishermanGrace is the first Frisco man toreport catching a shark during the currentseason.and came to St. Louis. At the ageof 21 he obtained a job as laborer inthe freight shed where he is nowforeman."It was' only a temporary job." explainedKlein, "but it's getting to bepermanent. I've been right here forforty-two years, working for the Frisco.After a year I was promoted toinhound foreman and held this placetwenty-eight years. Then in 1916 Ibecame general foreman of both inboundand outbound sheds."Iclein is married and has five sons,all grown. He lives at 2716 Belt avenue,is 63 years'old, and he can run100 pards in 15 seconds. He did itlast year at the company picnic. Twoyears ago he was given a handsomegold watch by his enlployes to markhis forty years in the service. All inall, Klein isn't badly liked at all andpresents a physique remarkable in aman of his years."There have been a good many encooragingcomments on the 'SafetyOr Sorrow' song." said Klein. "It wasnot ever intended as a money maker.It sold only for 10 cents a copy.But of the 3,000 copies I only haveabout 150 left. It was sung at companymeetings and, I'm told, at similarmeetings of other concerns. Ithas even been taken to some of theschools and taught to the children."The words are very simple, themusic tuneful and free from jazz. Afellow wrote me sometime ago fromNew York. He called himself a songbroker, I believe. Told me to sendon a copy of my song and he wouldsee if he couldn't get some large publishinghouses interested."Well, I sent it on. Then came thereply. If I would send him $60 hewould make suggestions, telling mehow I could write a sure-fire hit. ButI was to stop the business of safetyand write red-hot love songs. What?I should say I didn't send on that $60.First of all I hate jazz and wouldn'tlift a hand to rhyme dove and love.Second, I'm not kissing goodbye to asmuch money as that for a high-poweredshow-you-how-boy."He began to hum the tune of hissong as he looked over the sheet. Hewas encouraged, murmured he was nosinger, but ran through the words ofthe chorus.The two other bits he is working onand for which the music already hasbeen written are "Grandpa's Song ofSafety," and "Stop, Look and Listen.""I suppose there are quite a fewfellows who have made safety theirhobby," Klein remarked. "But don'tsay it will not pay. Listen to this:In 1927 we had thirty-five accidents;in 1928 there were seventeen; in 1929we had only five; and this year so farthere have been none. Safety songsand safety slogans are as good ahobby as any I know.

DECREASE DAMAGE 27.5%Excellent Record in Car HandlingIFirst Six Months, ReportShowsT is small wonder that shippershave no worries when their freightis routed via Frisco Lines, becauseso few of the vast number of carshandled on the system are damagedby rough handling and even the smallnumber damaged is constantly decreasing.This is evidenced in themost recent statement on this subjectwhich shows that the number of carsdamaged by rough handling on FriscoLines during the first six months ofthis year decreased 27.5 per cent incomparison with the same period oflast year and the monetary amount ofthis damage decreased 38.7 per cent.The per cent of increase in thenumber of cars handled per car damagedwas 28.4 during the first half ofthis year compared with the first halfof 1929 and the per cent of decreasein the amount of damage per carhandled was 33.99 in the same comparison.Central division had the best recordamong the Frisco divisions, handling196,510 cars during the firsthalf of the year and damaging noneof them. southwestern division isranked second in the report, damaging12 cars out of the 494,441 handledand Eastern division is given a.rating of third. A total of 406.621cars were handled there and 12 ofthem were damaged.ANOTHER FISH STORYJess Minnick and George Gippert,employes of the reclamation plantat Springfield, are ready to receiveall prizes and trophies awarded forchampion fisherman.They returned from a fishing tripon the Gasconade river on July 6with a 43-pound cat fish, and bothcontend it was caught on a rodand reel.The head was mounted andplaced on exhibition at the shop.It was examined and found thatthe mouth of the fish was largeenough to pass a quart can throughit without touching.Of the terminals, Springfield rankedfirst during the first six months withsix cars damaged out of a total of362,430 handled, and Birmingham wassecond, handling 346,094 cars anddamaging eight of them. St. Louiswas third, damaging eleven cars outof the 361,579 handled.Nine cars were damaged on TexasLines during the first half of the yearand a total of 64,380 were handledthere.

E. Springer, assistant trafficmanager, Birmingham, Ala., receivedthe inspiration for the "pome" whichappears below from the tale of woewhich C. H. Goldsmith, Amory, Miss.,trainmaster, brought back from a vacationspent with his parents in Kentucky."Goldie" made the trip byautomobile and having a little moretonnage than he wished to carry withhim, he checked some of his belongingsdirectly to his destination inKentucky, mailing the duplicate baggagecheck to his father. Amongother things he put into the package,were two pair of trousers and a pairof new shoes that he expected to useupon arrival. But his expectationscame to naught. The package reachedits destination two or three days aheadof Goldie and his father assumed thatthe trousers and shoes were a presentfor him from his son; consequently,when Goldie arrived, he found hisfather had altered the apparel to meethis requirements. The trousers wereshortened with the cuffs removed andleather heels had supplanted the rubberheels on the shoes.

Page 26LOCOMOTIVE FYEL PERFORMANCE RECORDSOfice of Fuel Agent, Sf. LouisPT1)oOST of our readers are more orless familiar with the fueleconomy meetings which areheld on each division each month. Incouuection therewith our generalmanager recently issued a circular letter,calling attention to the fact thatwhile we are making some reductionin our fuel performance. we are notdoing as well as some of the neighboringroads and requesting that wedo everything possible to create moreinterest in the matter of fuel conservation,particularly mentioning theattendance and interest displayed inour division fuel economy meetings.There is no question but that thesefuel economy meetings are a powerfor good, since they provide a placewhere all of our employes can feelfree to call attention to any conditionaffecting train operation and consequentlytheir fuel performance.While operating conditions may bec+onsiderably different on the variousrailroads, the methods used in nieetingconditions that are similar areoften times considerably different andmuch good can be accomplished byexchanging ideas, one road with another.For the past several mmthswe have been fortunate in having asvisitors representatives from neighboringroads who are well versed inthe matter of fuel economy and feclingthat what these gentlemen have saidin our fuel economy meetings woulclbe oI interest to all of us, wi!i endeavorto publish, this month and insubsequent issues of this magazine.briefly some of the points brought outby these various visitors. since spaceis uot availab!e to publish their remarksvel batim.During the month of Fehruarv wehad at our southern division fueleconomy meeting, held at Eirmingham,Ma., Mr. J.

If you don't ueed any supervisionyou are as near one huiidredpercent as you can be, but if youhave to have four or five runningaround after you to keep you in placeyon are playing a losing game. Cooeration originated with the philosolhythat Christ put forth in His sermonoil the mount, He said 'Lo~~e yeone another. Bear ye one anotker'sI~urdens' and 'Do unto others as youwould that others should (lo untoyou.' Every departnle~~t on the railroadshould co-operate to bring abouta better job of loconlotive and trainoperation. Service is one of thegreatest words in the Americanlanguage. You are rendering serrice.Our slogan on the M'abash each yearis 'Better Service,' and we endeavoreach year to render better service tothe public as well as to our su:leriors.We started a campaign on our roadto save a scoop full of coal an hour andwere successful in a good lnany cases.Ive did get the men interested in try-ing to clo a little better. You arejrtdged by the kind of company youkeep and the company is judged bythe kind of men it keeps. Geep yourreputation clear and your characterclear. Character is what you reallyarc, reputation is what people say youare. Nobody can cast you down andout but yourself. You have a fightingchance as long as yon have confidencein yourself, and if you don't clo yourbest you don't do anything."Mr. Bergin, at Lindenwood :"The friendly rivalry existing amongrailroads and their employes today isthe spice in the game of delivering,not only a good but a better service.11s employes of a railroad me must~tnderstand that in the securing oftraffic we cannot compete with oneanother on a monetary basis. due tothe fact that rates are established bythe federal commission. consequentlyit is service alone that brings thetraffic to your road and my road.Various conditions mill determine theainolint of traffic secured by the variousroads but the largest part of it isdependent on on-time schedules andIhe treatment of the shipper in atour' eous manner."One of our principal duties as trainand engine employes, or those con-nect~d with the operating department,is to be prompt, to eliminate the onen~inute delays as consistently as possible,insuring prompt deliveries. renderingan econon~ical freight trainoperating cost and a consistent fuelperformance.

"And so,-much to our sorrow later"A place to swim? Why. son, there's on, we slipped off. We began takingthe finest place to swim in the world, off our clothes enroute. Off came ourYou city boys-you don't know what shirt, then one shoe, then anotheran old swimming hole is like. WhenI see you swimming around in theseconcrete-and-tile city pools, my mindgoes back to the days of the oldswimming hole, where no liftguards stood around andwatched you while youswam. and where the tallcorn, rustling beside thehole hid you from theview of curious gazers.""Well. dad. you'll haveto tell us all about it, will'you?" said Junior."Sure, just as soon aswe get through dinner, I'lltake you in the livingroom and tell you justwhat to do."'Way I hear it too, daddy?"said Mary."Sure you may," said Dad.And so when the meal was over,Junior pulled up the little footstoolat his father's feet and Mary climbedup on his lap and Dad unfolded thestory of his boyhood days."Well," he said, "you see, my fatherwas pretty strict about his boys goingin swimming. The farm was a largeone and there was plenty of work forall of us to do, and you know it getsso hot around two and three in theafternoon, that it was a temptation tokeep away from the pond-we nevercalled them 'pools.' Try as hard aswe could, our thoughts kept wanderingto that shady place and wheneverwe could, we would slip off."Well, one day it had been unusuallyhot. Dad had seen to it that Ihoed the potato patch. The sun wassizzling and so were my back andmy arms. Your Uncle Jim was hoeingthe other end of the potato patch.Every once in awhile he would hollerat me and ask me if I wouldn't liketo go for a swim."Pretty soon the temptation becametoo strong. It was around four o'clockand I walked up to where he was andone and when we reached the oldswimmin' hole, everything was off exceptour jeans."Jerry and Dill Jones and the twoWilliams boys were already in. Weused to make a slide board out of thebank. We'd throw water on it tomake it slick and we'd make an awfulsplash when we slid down into thewater. It was nice and cool and wesorta lost track of the time. JohnnieWilliams and the other boys got outbefore we did, and went on home."The sun was going down and Jimsaid he guessed we'd better get backto the potato patch, and we startedto get our clothes."Do you know what those IVilliamsboys had done? They had taken ourjeans home with them and left ourshirts there, knotted so we couldnever get them undone. When theyhad tied the knots they had soakedthem in water."Jim kept on with his work of tryingto unknot his shirt and I reachedover and stuffed one foot in a shoe.'Ouch,' I yelled, and pulled it out witha crawfish sticking to the end of mytoe. I reached for the other shoe.it took all summer."We simply couldn't get the knoout of our shirts and we knew : 1couldn't go home until dark, becaaywe had to cross the road twice an{we didn't have a stitch of clothes I!our name.I"So we sat on the bank and worrl~!:some more.
