Telegraphic Force at Portsmouth and on Scioto Division Reduced
Portsmouth (Ohio) Times: The retrenchment policy of the Norfolk and Western has hit the division here and as a result the force of dispatchers has been reduced from six to five. Dispatcher Louie Schultz being laid off indefinitely. Schultz is now away on his vacation. Operators Simonton and S????*, who were located at the Etna yards at Ironton, were relieved from service by the Norfolk and Western yesterday. One man, Harry Calhoun, is retained on day service.
