SOUTHERN HAS FINE RECORD
AS TO FATAL ACCIDENTS
Atlanta, Ga., July 20—More
than sixteen and a half million
passengers—a number greater
than the combined population of
Virginia. North Carolina, South
Carolina, Geongia, Alabama, Ten
nessee and Kentucky—were trans
ported bv Southern Railway dur
ing the year ended June 30, with
only one fatal injury to a passen
ger while on a train and that one
was standing on a car platform
in direct violation of the com
pany's rules. Of this great num
ber of passengers not one was
killed in a train accident.
This excellent record was
shown in the official figures giv
en out today indicating the high
degree of safety that has been
attained in the handling of South
ern Railway passenger trains.
In marked contrast are figures
recently given out by President
Fairfax Harrison, of Southern
Railway, showing that during
the same period twelve persons
riding in automobiles were killed
in accidents at public highway
crossings, every one of which ac
cidents could have been prevent
ed had the driver of the car ob
served the familiar warning,
“Stop, Look, and Listen."
