Wilson, J62B SPprlnff Garden street, wlio, with hla aged mother, Mrs. Mary A. Wilson, was ln- Jured In nft auto accident Christmas Kve, attributes their injuries to the ' skip-stop system. "We were riding In an auoto driven by James Dahl, ot Thirty-seventh and I Urandywlne streets," said Mr, Wilson, j "and turned from Thirty-fourth street Into Spring Garden. ' J I "To avoid skidding. Mr1. Dahl made a wide circle and turned the car directly t , In the path of a trolley running east on i Spi Ing Garden. We though the motori I man had time to stop, hut Instead of I stopping the trolley struck us." Thirty fourth street Is a skip-stop. ' Mr. Wilson sustained severo Injuries on his head and legs and Is confined to his bed. Mrs. Wilson also sustained leg Injuries. Dahl's car was demolished. "The vicious skip-stop system was rei sponsible," said Mr. Wilson. "That much was apparent from the attitude of the men nnd women who saw the acci dent. They threatened the motorman'. but I told them that the skip-stop ays tern nnd not the motorman was respon sible." The Itapld Transit Company Is willing If It Is permitted to do Just as it pleases about sklp-Btops. The company's second pamphlet Jn the publicity campaign to persuade the, public to let It continue the protested system l.s about to be given out to trol ley riders. The pamphlet announces , anomer meeting or th committee oC thirteen will be- held at the. City Hall tomorrow afternoon. ' The folder Is entitled "Truth About! Skip-stops," and, after admitting that) "one-third" of the company's patrons re "Inconvenienced" by the-system, makes this statement: "It'B hard to sense it, but It's the truth. The Siotesbury-Mltten manage went Is working for you." I And then It says, "All car riders are benefited by rapid transit and low fares" I How tho aid and suggestion ot th i Public will be used by the company Is .explained in a paragraph as follows: t . "When effectively adjusted as to . Proper stopping places by Vice President I Tulley and the committee of experts, 'Sd by the suggestions of the citizens a"d nrsoclatlons, skip-stop will be less trv Ing to Uiy person and of great helo I to a" n" a time-saver and to Immediate raP'd transit." i CTUnc mill) Tn TincniTAf ' ' jCNUj fUUK 1U HUorllAL i iirce Antagonists ol Christening Pf nSti,.., Three men were bitten and another had his hand broken In attempts to sub due James I.aylk, flhy-two years oldj of 54f.
