News From the Past - June 17, 1929

If I were giving these catch titles I would call this one "Non-Specific News."

CHICAGO, June 17 - Ten Per-person were dead today in the Chicago area as a result of automobile accidents. Eight persons were reported dying.

INDIANAPOLIS Ind. June 17 - At least four persons were killed and a dozen were injured in accidents over the weekend in Indiana. Practically all of them were the victims of automobile accidents.
The Ten Per Persons bit was probably an error on the type-setters fault. These stories are from the Logansport Pharos-Tribune. Well they are two stories with one headline. A generic one.
