Cab Firm Head and 60 Drivers
Sue Uncomplimentary Author
James J. Brennan's account of 1
Washington taxicab drivers In the ι
Saturday Evening Poet—entitled, ]
'Never Give the Passenger a
Break"—has given some of his fel- '
low hackers less than one, according ]
a complaint at District Court. <
Thomas W. Fowler, owner of the <
Columbia Cab Ce. and Charles B. 1
Howery, a driver, who is suing also
η behalf of 59 other Columbia driv- ]
srs, call the article published last j
week "libelous" in a (400,000 damage
suit filed yesterday.
"Washington's haughty cab driv
>rs go where they please, charge 1
what you like, and all but make the 1
poor riders change tires," the suit
juoted the article's subtitle as say
ing. "Here's a hacker's lively ac
;ount of how they keep the custom
srs humble."
An illustration accompanying the
account pictured a taxicab marked
"Columbia Cab."
As a result, the suit asserted, Mr.
Howery and the 59 other Columbia
drivers have been injured in their
Boy and Father Lose
$105,000 U. S. Suit
The Government yesterday won
the first case tried in District Court
under the Federal Tort Claim Act
of 1946, allowing the Government
to he sued for acts of negligence.
Visiting Justice Ben Moore of
Charleston, W. Va., heard the case
in which Donald Rice, 14, colored,
and his father, George Rice, of the
2000 block of Nichols avenue S.E.,
sought $105,000 damages for injuries
suffered by the boy while playing
on the grounds of St. Elizabeths
Hospital.
Donald lost both feet, according
to the testimony, in an accident in
November, 1945, while he was hang
ing on to the left front ladder of a
midget locomotive used to shunt
coal cars. He and several other
boys had gone to play on the Army's
commando obstacle course on the
hospital property, it was said.
The boy said the accident occurred
when a man climbed over from the
front of the coal car and swung
his foot at him as he hung on the j
side. The Government contended,
however, the child was knocked
under the- moving locomotive by a
protruding embankment.
The trial was heard without a
jury as provided by rules for hear- ;
ing cases of the type. Assistant j
United States Attorney John P.
Burke represented the Government.
