December 26 (p. 5)
Police officers Phil D. Doescher (left) and Ernest C. Nezeau were in their patrol wagon at the intersection of Baronne and Gravier Streets on Christmas day when it was hit by a Tulane Belt streetcar. Fortunately their injuries were not as serious as first suspected, and they were soon released from the hospital. The streetcar motorman was arrested but also soon released, perhaps because he was the father of seven children and it was, after all, Christmas day.
