EVANSTON, WYO. (U,R> —
That's as close as I ever want to
come to death.
I was sitting in the washroom
of the front coach of The City
of San Francisco when it plowed
into the rear of The City of Los
Angeles passenger train five miles
west of here Monday.
It was a scene I never want to
Without any warning the train
stopped with a terrific jolt and
threw furniture across the wash
room and banged it against the
forward wall. I walked back in
the coach and saw passengers and
luggage thrown all over the floor
of the car.
The car was off the tracks.
Practically everybody in our car
got a bump of some kind. I got a
I looked out of our coach and
4 forward to where our locomotive
hit the observation car of The
City of Los Angeles.
It was a complete shambles.
Our locomotive was literally
buried under the wreckage of the
Los Angeles observation car.
It was snowing all the time and
there was about a foot of snow
oon the ground. We were about
300 yards from the highway then
and after the first hour at the
scene only one stretcher had been
We were told they needed cutting
equipment to get into the wreck
age of the locomotive ar.d obser
vation car. All up and down the
line cars were derailed.
It's just unbelievable the way
those cars were torn to pieces.
T don't see how anyone got out of
that observation car alive. A wom
an told me she saw' a doctor she
had met earlier on the Los Angeles.
He was decapitated.
But one thing about it there
after the crash—there were no
screams of pain, no one shouting
for help. It was just a dead silence.
The railroad men here just can't
imagine what happened. Snow
covered the block signals, I guess,
and stopped the Los Angeles. Then
more of this snow obscured the
vision of the engineer on our- train
and wre hit.
I was headed for Detroit and the
national convention of the Sigma
Delta Chi fraternity when the
Plans for sponsoring an appear
ance of Jazz at the Philharmonic
by the Associated Creek Students
were told at a meeting of AOS rep
resentatives Tuesday afternoon.
However, for the plans to go :
through, all members of AGS must
approve the sponsorship, Larry
Dean, president, of AGS, said. As i
of 11:45 p.m. Tuesday, 28 houses
had approved the plans with four!
more yet to report. After approval
of the houses, the student affairs
committee must also consider the j
plans. Dean said.
If all necessary steps are hur
dled,, Dean reported, the musical
group will appear Monday from
7 to 10 p.m. in McArthur court, j
Tickets would be $1.80 per person, 1
with a few special reserved seats
at $2.40. Proceeds from the pro
gram would go to the Eugene!
Crippled Children's Hospital.
I Inns Heady
Dean and Stu McCollom, who'
was one of six Oregon students 1
who originally planned to sponsor :
the band, outlined the plans to the
group. Dean said that all plans ’
for promotion and publicity were j
or would be made and only the (
final approval of the student af- |
fairs committee would hold up full- ;
seale promotion of the event.
Also during the meeting. Dean
announced that Alpha Tau Omega
were considering changing their
political affiliations. He termed
the announcement, “unofficial and
off the record.“ and said that hr
had received no petitions from the ;
group to that effect.
Dean went on to remind mem- j
bers of the AGS constitution ruling
which states that parties returning ‘
to the AGS party after having!
broken affiliations would be kept !
from nominating candidates for j
political office for one year follow- I
ing their return.
