Fond Du Lac Reporter (Newspaper) - March 28, 1972, Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin Anything Can Happen on Old Long Island Railroad and It Does O hoon nn alarm All we need now an Indian By SAUL PETT PORT WASHINGTON AP Chapter 94 of Life in the New York Area These At Monday night where between Great Neck and which for North Shore commuters on Long Island is the indispensable Ho Chi Minn trail between Bagdad on the Hudson and the family hearth there had already been a slight delay on the in- domitable railroad which had just increased fares again by a percentage that slipped by the Price Board when the con- ductor got on the public id- dress system and in the flat tones of an old Brooklyn back when the Dodgers were exhorting us to wait until next year There will be a slight de- lay Said an irate commuter Jumping which is not what he said The conductor A cable is over the track We'll back over it and then ceed Then the lights went out in the bar car of the There was absolutely no pan- ic although all of us pressed by the force of circumstance into this particular car quickly began entertaining thoughts of that cable whatever it was strung like a malevolent breathing snake across the hot third rail of this electrified road One couldn't help thinking of rescue workers picking through the pitiful cinders of all those attache cases A conscientious reporter couldn't help thinking what an abysmal irony it would he to be cremated on the old 15 when all along he had dreamed that if some transportation tragedy were to befall him it would he on a plane from mira which was how hijacked to Beirut by way of the zephyr-kissed islands of Micronesia Then from the left we could see two fire department en- gines and little can flags gallantly flying from a standard above the driver's seat And firemen in those big hats and high boots working feverishly near the tracks Said passenger I think 1 see small fires on the tracks ahead Still there was no panic on the old although the bar business had increased and someone asked for the exact words to Nearer My God 10 Thee Then the conductor an- on the PA through the darkened car on some power of The cable has been re- moved There is no cause lor alarm There had been no alarm be- fore then and really none after that but one intense passenger in a heavy mustache and long sideburns cornered a helpless conductor and proceeded to be- rate him about what the hell the cable was doing across the tracks and if it was hot what good would it do to back over it and why should the American public be eternally kept in the dark by a lying evasive over- charging establishment Said another passenger de- scribed hv some as a cynic All we need now is an Indian attack Finally we were all herded over the tracks at Great Neck and delivered to the mercy of the and ultimately at our home station Port Washington which is 18 miles from New York at giving us an elapsed time of one hour 44 minutes We were one hour and four minutes late which as every commuter between here and Los Angeles in this year of the American dream knows is but a tick in lime FondduLac Reporter 26 Pages 2 Sections Fond du Lac Wis Tuesday March 28 1972 15 Cents GOP
