Allegedly playing the game called "chicken" three Weissport brothers, aged 10, 8 and 5, stood on the tracks of the Jersey Central Railroad at the Weissport grade crossing yesterday, gambled with their lives and won.

Maritain A. Otto, 456 N. Third St., Lehighton, the engineer of the 130-car eastbound freight train, en route from the local yards to Jersey City, N.J., said he saw the boys on the track and thought they were caught in a rail.
