   One man was killed and three others, all residents of Little Rock and North Little Rock were hurt when the engine and two cars of Missouri Pacific passenger train No. 210, the "Sunshine Special," left the track at Almont, six and one-half miles west of Memphis at 11:13 Saturday night. An open switch belived to have been thrown with the deliberate purpose of wrecking the train, was assigned as the cause.
   The dead man is John L. Slocum aged 29, fireman, 923 Garland avenue, Little Rock.
    Last night, Engineer Kellog said that the switch frog had been pried open and held open and that newspapers were found wrapped around the switch light in such a manner as to conceal them. Engineer Kellog said that when his engine struck the switch it ran a few feet on the siding then left the rails and overturned at right angles, across the main track. The main car and one coach were also derailed across the tracks, Mr. Kellogg said. The line was blocked until 10:00 o'clock yesterday morning and trains were detoured over the Rock Island tracks by way of Bridge Junction.
   A train bearing the body of Fireman Slocum and the injured men arrived here at 11:00 o'clock yesterday morning.
    Mr. Slocum was born at Hamburg, Ark., where his parents still reside. He is survived by his wife and two brothers, Floyd Slocum of Mist, Ark., and Wiley Slocum of Fort Worth, Tex., and four sisters. The body will be sent to Hamburg at 8:00 o'clock this morning for funeral services, which will be conducted tomorrow from the Baptist church there. Mr. Slocumb was a member of the Woodmen of the World and the Little Rock chapter, Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen.
----------
Memphis, Tenn. - Two men are held on the secret docket by police here, and other arrests are promised by Missouri Pacific agents, in connection with the wrecking last midnight of the "Sunshine Special" passenger train, west-bound, on the Missouri Pacific railroad at Almount, Ark., six and one-half miles from Memphis.
   John Slocum, fireman, of Little Rock was pinned beneath his engine and almost instantly killed.  They claim to be farmers living at Blauton, Ark., and deny all connection with the wreck. No charges have been preferred against them. According to a statement given out by Missouri Pacific officials here, the switch had been opened, the lights extinguished and newspapers wrapped around the switch lamps.
