      Joseph W. SHEARER, 82, veteran retired Erie locomotive engineer, succumbed to a heart attack in his apartment over the Havey Cafe, in Argos, at 8 o?clock Wednesday evening.

      Shearer was well known in Rochester, having resided here back in the days when the local freight terminal for train and engine crews serving the territory between Rochester and Hammond was located in this city. He retired from railroad service several years ago.
