She wm killed Close to where her sister Lillian was hit by a. streetcar 10 years ago. Alice went to the Lockwood school." MACHINE TRAVELING SLOWLY "I was not traveling fast," is Elli ott 1* explanation. "I thought the child "would remain at her parents' side and when she ran aoros3 my path I was so near I could not avoid her. In fact, until we got her to the doctor I did not suppose she was seriously hurt, for I thought only a fender of the car had • truck her. I have not operated n auto much and I know I was traveling slowly and cautiously, as I did not •want to take chances of accidents." Carlsen is a fire insurance agent.
