SAYS TRAINS UNPROFITABLE
Railroad Oflioer Authority For State*
ment That Passenger Trains That

clared Lost tha Company Money Be
for# Thay Ware Discontinued.
The daylight Sunday passenger
trains on the Ft. L. are not to
be put back into service, at least not
for a time. Thta is the answer that
General Manager W. G. Bremner has
given to the petition of the Marshall
town Club and commercial bodies of
Mnson City. Oskaloosa, Eldora and
other cities and towns that Joined In a
movement to have this passenger serv
ice restored. The reason given Is that
even before theae trains were taken
off, after the United States declared
war, they were unprofitable.
Mr. Brrmner indicated that If con
ditions in the business became normal
again that he would be glad to con
sider placing these train* back in
service. So definite promise, however
of when this would be was given.
Trains Not Self Supporting.
General Manager Bremner went Into
the question of this train service very
fullv and explained why it was Im
possible for the company to consider
resuming the service. He said that
not only was the company losing
money under federal control, but that
these Sunday trains had not been self
supporting before they were taken ofT.
The cost of operating the two pas
sengers, he said, was $S5 a round trip
and the fares never paid the cost of
operation. They had been operated for
years simply to give service, but under
the present conditions the company
was not warranted In putting them
tack into service.

ONE are the days when my heart was young and gay
gone are my friends from the cotton fields away.
The old slave days of the South are past and gone, but
the memories of them will live forever in Foster's immortal folk
songs. Who is there who has not been thrilled by the Simple
tune of "Old Black Joe?" It is as familiar to us, almost as
our own names. Yet we never tire of it, always feel the same
old tug at our heart-strings whenever it is sung.
The Criterion Quartet^ probably the most popular male
quartet in America today, noil sing "Old Black Joe" at their
Community Lecture Course, Monday, Feb. 10
You must not miss this quartet rendition of "Old Black Joe
part harmony enhances tremendously the song's appeal.

often as you desire.
