The stories tell of a "coach load of people going over a cliff with casual tics of from 20 to twice that number and the account becomes appalling as the account grows and spreads. As a matter of fact the only acci jdent in the park this season was the one in which two people from Minne sot« backed over n cliff several days ago.
