FENDER LAW READ INTO THE
RECORDS OF COGGIN INQUEST
The fender law was read yesterday
into the records of the inquest over
Catherine Goggin, aged victim of a
fenderless Marshall Field & Co. auto
Although Coroner Peter M. Hoff
man is very busy blaming the poor
lighting facilities at the point of the
accident for the death of the secre
tary of the Chicago Teachers' Feder- .
ation, he has not responded favor
ably to suggestions of newspaper
men that a fender on the truck might
have prevented death.
He said yesterday that he was not
going to investigate the fender angle
in the Goggin death.
"How do I know that a fender
woujd have saved her life?" is the jist
of his explanation.
But the fender law will figure in
the future of the Goggin cas'e, for
Att'y L T. Greenacre asked that it be
included in the transcript of the case.
Testimony yesterday tended to
show that the accident was unavoid
able. Poor light on the corner, wet
pavement, quiet automobile and a
mist on the glass in front of the driver
led to the occurrence.
But whether death might have
been prevented by a fender, as
friends of the slain woman have
charged, did not enter into the in
quiry conducted by the coroner yes
terday. It will be finished today.
