Chief Dispatcher on Vacation
??* Fields, chief dispatcher at the local division offices, is taking his annual vacation and will do some business down in Russell county and in eastern Tennessee. During his absence T. P. Ford, night chief, will act as chief dispatcher, while his position will be filled by Andy Morrissey. The dispatchers will move up a trick to fill out.
*Names were indistinct on the microfilm. The best interpretations are shown where possible.
Fell From a Train
Henry Oliver, colored of South Boston, Va., was picked up at Falls Mills yesterday morning suffering from a broken leg and three fractured ribs. He was taken to Miners' hospital at Welch, where he was treated. It is believed that Oliver fell from a train on which he was stealing a ride.
[It would have been only about seven miles to a hospital at Bluefield, WV, but he was taken about 29 miles to Welch. Maybe because the next train was going west?]
