I ROCKS SHOWER
ABOUT WOMEN
Have Narrow Escape-in the
Quarry District in Auto
niobilesToday. After passing through a veritable
shower of ragged edgea rockss some El
Paso women consider ,lt very 'fortunate
that they are still alive. Members of an
early morning automobile party experi
enced the thrills of being frightened
Into hysteria.
It occurred early today on the road
running through the quarry, district
four miles from the city. A public auto
mobile, driven by Charles Rowland, was
taking some guests of Mrs. E. B. Ma
rion to her ranch just over the New
Mexico line, Mrs. Marion accompanying.
Without any warning, the women say,
an explosion like thunder occurred and
the air was black with pieces of rock.
The machine was stopped and shortly
after a second fcxpjrsidn and more
rocks fell. Attjiis the riders crawled
under the machine. By some miracle
no rocks struck t"he vehicle nor Its pas
sengers, although jagged pieces of stone
lay about In the thoroughfare.
Management of the Southwestern
.Portland Cement company says that
men always are sent to guard the road
At the Courchesne quarry it is de
clared that no blasts are made whicli
throw rock as far as the rightofway-
neither company has received report!
