June di- rectors di the" Chesapeake and Ohio were summoned today to testify at tho Interstate Commerce Commission hear- ings as to that railroad's project to ac- quire control of the Erie and Pere Marquette systems. Gedrgo Cole Scott of Richmond, one of their number, was the head of an opposing minority of Chesapeake and Ohio stockholders who fought a former merger plan, but protested, when his testimony again.it consolidation wa i read out of records of a former pro- ceeding, that Ills views had now changed. Along with John Stewart Bryan, of Richmond, another minority leader, Scott said, he had accepted a post on the Chesapeake and Ohio board at the invitation of O. P. Van Swerlngen. Be described at considerable length the negotiations looking to a consol- idation of the Chesapeake and Ohio with other roads of the Van Swerln- gen group, and the final drafting of the present proposal. Tolls of Discussions George T. Bishop, of Cleveland, an- other director, aloo told of discussions looking to consolidation project, which he advocated as Angling the Chesa- peake and Ohio to render better and more profitable service. W. J. Hara- han, president of the road, testified again today as to details of budget expenditures on its lines. 1 Scott revealed publicly for the first time the Intimate details of how a spe- cial committee of C. and O. directors came to a determination to recommend that the road buy stock control of the Erie nnd Fere Msrquette. It has been the Implied contention of the protest- ing minority that the proposal in real- ity originated with the Van Swerln- gens themselves. Scott's testimony was introduced to combat that theory of the opposition. Scott recited how, after the Interstate commerce commission rejected the old Nickel Plate consolidation plan, the special committee exhausted efforts to find a new On his return from Europe Scott said he was sud- denly summoned to a meeting of the committee In New York where there was disclosed to him a plan for the Chesapeake and Ohio to buy the other two roads.

Van Swerlngen, Scott testified never had been consulted about it and when called into the conference room and asked about the plan, replied: "I will do anything which the com- mittee agrees Is the best thing to do for the C. and O." The committee continued Its delib- erations and when it called for O. P. Van Swerlngen again to negotiate a price on his Erie stocks, Van Swerln- gen replied, according to Scott: "Write your own ticket." In the procedure which followed, Scott tes- tified; -the Chesapeake and Ohio took from Van Swcrlngen an option on his Erie, stocks .at. an. average of about a share, somn four dollars below the current marfc, although Scott and some of the other directors favored paying him as high as forty. The plan, Scott testified, was per- fcqtcd entirely In the committee and the Van Sworlngcmt had no part in originating it. RAPID CITY, 8. D., June summer White House was set up by President Coclidge tonight In a moun- tainous country flanking the great farming regions of the northwest. Somewhat weary from his two days' journey from Washington, he came into the Black Hills of South Dakota with a hearty welcome from its peo- ple, anticipating two months of relax- ation amid pine clad hills and cool mountain streams. The purple haze of a western twi- light was gathering as the President and Mrs. Coolidge reached their des- tination. Crackling fires of pine wood In the numerous fireplaces of the 40- room state lodge which will house them, took the chill from the air and spread warmth for its distinguished occupants who motored in an open car over the 32-mile gravel road from Rapjd City. Complete Journey The special train carrying the presi- dent and the White House retinue ended its 1900 mile journey at p. m. mountain time, and soon, after- ward Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge stepped from their car to the lusty cheers of Rapid City's Inhabitants. Rapid City also welcomed Jts first presldantial resident with the roar of 21 guns, the presidential salute, from a cannon brought down from Port Meade. Before the motor caravan carrying the presidential party hastened through the crowd-lined streets toward the hills, .the president received Mayor Jepson of thin city and Representative Williams of South Dakota. When they stopped for pictures, an informal re- ception line quickly formed and city officials and their wives filed past to shake bands of the president and Mrs. Coolldge. Occasionally In the crowd could be seen an Indian in full head dress re- galia. Farther along the route to the lodge, a group of almost gave a "yip" ahead of the It made lU small town' between Hills residence. Before night had settled most of the White House household brought from Washington was established in the nearby cabins. In a car close to the president's went a large portion of buffalo tenderloin and seven pheasants for the pantry in the summer White House. Hugh Jaynea of Pierre gave the president the buffalo meat when he stopped there at noon today. The Pierre commercial club obtained a spe- cial license to capture the out of season (or the president s table. Pttx Are Tired Also In the list of those motoring up to tho game lodge tonight were Re- becca, pet raccoon of the president, who seemed quite tired from her long, train ride, and RobVRoy and Prudence Prim, white collies. Both Mr. and Mrs. Coolldge were on 'hand for {he many welcomes given them as they crossed the state today and both smiled happily tonight when Rapid City roared Its western hello. Stops were few during the day but' crowd was Always on hand at each of the many stations passed to wave greeting as the train passed or to give It applause. Mr. and Mrs. Cool- ldge came to the observation platform at stops. The president invited Senator Nor- beck to board the train at Lake Pres- ton, just over the state line, and he presented delegations which boarded the train there and at Huron, to the president. As usual the president re- served comment except to thank his hosts for their welcome. This Is the home of those who urged the vetoed MiiNary-Haugen farm bill but both politics and, legislation were laid aside in the presidential, car. Mr. Coolldge was assured, however, that re- cent rains had Improved the crop out- look. At Governor Bulow, one of the state's few democratic governors, rode with the president to the capitol building where state officials were' re- ceived. A ride about town was taken before the train was boarded again.

With incredible swiftness the report spread, but hope was eoon dispelled when the government officials and lumber companies could find no confirmatio of it. An employee of a large corporation had in the district north of the Saguenay river was responsible for the report which he transmitted In a telephone message to his mother reslillng in Quebec City.

Begin township IB nearer to Ohlcou timl than St. Germain, and the feeling was that whoever was responsible to the lights was making toward th populated districts of the Saguenay. The1 provincial .government has re ceived no confirmation of any reppr beyond that which said lights ha been observed: Government official counsel caution In accepting as tru reports that the flares were sent up b Nungesser and Coli, for it is realize: that other agencies might '.have been responsible for them.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
