Salt Lake City. Sam K. Runswick, engineer and Kenneth B. Bennett, student fireman, also of Salt Lake, were killed, and six others were injured when the Los Angeles Limited, leaving Salt Lake at 11:55 o'clock Saturday night, was ditched three miles south of Sandy at 12:40 o'clock Sunday morning. The wreck Is believed to have been caused by an overflowing ditch, causing the embankment to become undermined. The engine and three cars rolled over. Five of the injured were taken to the Holy Cross Hospital. Considerable difficulty was encountered in notifying the railroad officials and getting medical and other The ambulance aid to the wreck. which was dispatched at once, met with an accident on the way to the wreck, which added to the delay. One man was taken unconscious to the L. D. S. hospital. Because of his condition it was Impossible to ascertain his name and address. He Is not expected to live. He is thought to be H. H Howarth, the missing fireman. Doctors and nurses were quickly called and sent to the wreck in two special trains, which were made up within half an hour after the wreck was reported here. .Several doctors answering the emergency call were sent in autos and had to walk more than a mile from the highway to where the engine and coaches lay on their sides. Darkness added to the difficulty of walking and also of finding the injured and caring for them. The first intimation that anything was wrong with the train was telephoned to the O. S. L. offices by E. E. Dewey, Janitor of the Jordan school, who had started to walk to his home about a mile from where the wreck occurred. Mr. Dewey had been in Salt Lake and left the train at Sandy. He heard the crash and hastened to a telephone and reported. The railroad company at once called out a wrecking crew and sent a man to Investigate. No time was lost in getting the doctors and nurses notified and when the need for the special train was apparent everything was In readiness. H London. Great Britain, through Baldwin in commons and Marquis Curzon in lords, Thursday demanded that occupation of the Ruhr come to an end and that the allies unite in fixing a fair amount of reparations and asking Germany to pay it. This was the gist of the statement of British policy towards the reparations problem. Stanley Baldwin was cheered to the echo as he pleaded for allied cooperation as well as an end of the Ruhr venture. A break with France is considered averted If the French government returns a favorable answer. "The essential factors of settlement of Europe's Ills," Baldwin told a crowded house, are: "First, payment of reparations. "Second, settlement of interallied debts." "Third, security of Europe."
