Too Much Carelessnes .
Carelessness upon, the part of the
Detroit United Railway lines between
Jackson and Ann Arbor was respon-
sible for a serious accident in which
many students were injured. Someone
disregarded an order and two interur-
ban cars collided, head on, Accidents
of this nature have been much too
frecquent in the past. During the last
few years, they have been constantly
recurring with more or less loss of
life. Someone forgets to turn or wvait
at a switch and a wreck results.
If the Detroit United Railway can-
not furnish more efficient and safer
service, it is time that the state author-
ities stepped in anrl took strong meas-
ures to remedy the situation. If the
authorities refuse to do this, the citi-
zens, themselves, can demand safer
service by refusing to patronize these
lines until assured that responsible
men have charge of the cars.

ly wrenched. Mr. Rockwell was also
badly bruised but managed to get
Mrs. Rockwell out of the debris.
Although his injuries were painful,
he was the first to start administering
to the more seriously injured passen-
gers. Together with a doctor from
Chelsea, who was on the wrecked car,
he gave what medical treathient he
could to the badly injured, setting sev-
eral legs, in makeshift splints before
the physicians arrived from Ann Arbor
with bandages and other medical sup-
"It was a horrible sight," said Mr.
Rockwell yesterday. "The hillside near
the wrecked cars were strewn with
bleeding forms and the groans were
awful. It was fortunate that the col-
lision occurred in front of a farm
house. We secured water and rough
bandages with which to bind up wounds
but could do little without the proper
"Why the people in the smoker were
not all killed is a thing I cannot un-
derstand,.. Some of the college boys
were way in front and one of them sat
just back of Densmore, who was hor-
ribly mangled and killed."
Automobiles Carry Help.
As soon as the news of the accident
spread about Ann Arbor, several uni-
versity students hurried to the scene
lh automobiles. They arrived at the
wreck before all of the passengers
had been extricated, and at once set
to work with the wrecking crews and
doctors to relieve the imprisoned suf-
Lerers. Then they brought several of
j the injured back to their homes.
Senior medics were also in attend-
ance, as soon as the cars of injured
persons reached Ann Arbor. At both
the general and homeopathic hospitals,
they worked nearly all night in caring
for the passengers. Twenty-eight of
the more seriously injured were taken
to the homeopathic hospital and the

Spring at Last,
It did seem good to get back to AnnI
Arbor yesterday and meet all of our
old friends. Another stranger was here
to greet us, one whose presence has
long been expected and desired. This
was spring in all its early beauty.
Its presence was evidenced in many
ways. The campus grass was a bril-
liant green and the trees were bursting
into bloorn. But even more evident
than these signs, was the display of
new millinery and spring clothes. It
is a great relief to see the campus
flooded with gayer color than the
more conventional and sober
hues of winter. The canoe
)oys are again in evidence
and the campus houintl displays an al-
most new collar.
It is the "big end" of the year, cul-
minating in the celebration of the Sev-
enty-fifth Anniversary Celebration, and
every one seemed to have returned
with enough energy and ambition to
?arry off the remaining eight weeks of
bor. One student ran for the west
bound car, when it left Ann Arbor but
missed and an intimate friend of hi:
did the same with the east bound lim-
ited at Jackson. Yesterday they were
thankful that they were not speedy
Another Passenger Dies.
Mos s Slonim, a Jewish Rabbi who
was badly hurt when the cars met, died
at the homeopathic hospital early last
evening. He was crushed about the
head and remained unconscious from
the time of the accident until his death.
His brother, who was with him on the
car, is at the hospital with a badly in-
jured leg, having two fractures above
and two below the knee. He is the
only passenger whose condition is se-
