Burton L. K, Wilson nnd Aged
Mother Injured When Car
Hits Automobile I
Burton Ji K. 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."
