held for Police Court action under the

coroner’* juries investigating two re
cent traffic fatalities.
George F. Wald, 22, of 1327 Emerson

terday of William Thomas, 75, of 212
Eleventh street S.E. The accident oc
curred on Fourteenth street S.W.,
about 250 feet from the north end of ,
Highway Bridge.
Mr. Wald testified “something hap
pened to. the brakes'* on his loaded
truck, and that rather than crash into i
the rear of two loaded buses directly
ahead of him, he swerved and ran over
the sidewalk. He testified he did not
