Tucson Daily Citizen (Newspaper) - November 29, 1960, Tucson, Arizona VOL. 88 NO. 286 TUCSON, ARIZONA, TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 29, I960 10 CENTS PAGES IN CANADIAN VILLAGE Train Rams Bus, Killing 15 Children LAMONT, Alia. UPI A fast freight train crashed into a school bus at a snow-covered country crossing to- day, killing at least 15 youngsters and injuring a dozen more. Royal Canadian Mounted police, list- ing the tentative toll, said it might go higher. About 32 pupils between 8 and 16 years of age were on the bus. The bus was barely half a mile from Lamont Consolidated School in this farming village of northwest Canada when the Canadian National freight hit it amidships at an unguarded crossing. The train, when it hit the bus, hurled bodies and wreckage for hundreds of yards. It impaled the main cabin of the bus and shoved it one quarter mile into the. middle of town before halting. The accident happened at a.m. about one-fourth of a mile from the school to which the victims were head- ed from their homes in the country. The scene was rolling farm country about 40 miles northeast of Edmonton, the capital of Alberta province. Lamont, a town of less than population, heard the grating approach of the braking two-diesel train and the screams of the children. Hundreds turned out. in zero weather to rescue the victims. A nearby garage sent its tow-truck to drag the shattered bus cabin off the prow of the big diesel heading the 40- car train. Within minutes volunteers had removed all the trapped victims. Other townspeople joined police and an ambulance crew in picking up the injured and the dead who had been spilled out along the right of way. Within 20 minutes, the small com- munity hospital was treating all the victims. Convoys of relief workers set out at once from Edmonton. But heavy snow- to eight their way over the provincial highway. No snow was falling at the time of the ac- cident and skies were clear. At Edmonton, Mounted Police Staff Sgt. J. R. Sangster said the rural cross- ing was in rolling country "but I be- lieve it's quite flat where the bus was hit." The driver, whose identity was not immediately released, was among the injured. And All iBowles Seen 4In' The While He Slept Not a word was spoken Two soft shoe masked and operating in utter silence, took about from the bedroom of a hank offi- i cial today after surprising his wife who was awake in j their bed. j Sidney H. Nielsen, assist- ant vice-president of the j Southern Arizona Bank Trust Co., slept through the robbery at his home, 842 W. Calle Francita. The pair took the money i from his wallet in a pants; pocket, police said, after slip-! ping quietly inio the house l and pulling a gun on Mrs. Nielsen. The victim said one of the men put his finger up to his lips in a sign to be quiet and that no word was spoken. Police said Mrs. Nielsen reported the men were tall and slim. They were wearing some type of masks and had hats with the brims pulled down over their eyes, she said. They were wearing black jackets. Mrs. Nielsen said the men took a ring from her purse, hanging on a doorknob, and also took some medicine and 11 hypodermic syringe from a bedside stand. j The Nielsen's sons. Russell j 20, and Wesley, 23, also slept through the incident. Troops Keep Uneasy Calm j In Caracas CARACAS, Venezuela and tanks pa- j trolled central Caracas early i today, maintaining uneasy or- j der after four days of wild rioting regarded by the gov- ernment as an attempt at Communist revolution. Soldiers ordered out by President Romulo Betancourt fired repeatedly on mobs here yesterday, killing at least two persons. This increased the toll of the outbreak to 5 dead and about 200 wounded.

Somewhat more expressive: of his elation, Nello Teer said, "We are very pleased i that we were successful and' we are ready to start right- away." Col. Clayton Rust, engineer in charge of the project here for the Corps of Engineers, also voiced gratification over the low bid.

This was two degrees higher than the record set for the date in 1948. However, an unofficial reading at the Ft. Lowell Ruins had it down to 16 de- grees for the second consecu- tive day. Another unofficial reading at the University of Arizona weather station had the low for this morning at 32.
