Dog Leads Rescuers to
Bodies of Five Youths
Pittsburgh, Pa., Dec. 30 W) A
shaggy dog, whose nervous bark
ing and whining could not be
stilled, led a man into an aban
doned mine in the South Hills
last night and there five boys
were found victims of gas.
Today, white crepe symbols re
placed holly wreaths at the homes
of Steve Polka, 16; Andrew No
vak, 16; John Vogick, 14; Walter
Kubala, 15, aand Joseph Kasicik,
The boys went into the mine to
gather coal for their families.
Several of them carried candles.
About three-quarters of a mile in
they began to drop.
The dog, constant companion of
the Vogick boy, returned home
alone. When it could not be
quieted the boy's father followed
the dog to the. pit.
Battalion Chief Saul Klein was
overcome while trying to save the
lads. He is recovering in a hospital.

Provided For In Act
"The transportation act passed
by congress in 1920 provides for a
consolidation of railways into a
limited number of atrong systems in
order to maintain broader competi
tion, more adequate service, simpli
fication of rate structure, lower
operating costs and in the long run
lower rates to the public.
"During the past ten years a pos
sible grouping of the roads so as to
carry out the law has been under
constant discussion. The interstate
commerce commission has no power
to compel such consolidations. They
can only be effected upon initiations
of the carriers.
"During this period a number of
negotiations have been undertaken
in respect to these railways, with
view to carrying out the wishes of
congress, but they have proved abor
tive. "A year ago the interstate com
merce commission issued a susttest
ed plan for consolidating these roads
into five systems. This plan, like
others, has met with objections
which apparently made it an unsolv
