V The plank walk, which once extended under the Scenic Rail- way from the long warf at West End to the revetment levee, gave way yesterday afternoon, and about fifteen people, ladies and gentlemen, were dumped into the lake. Mrs. Mary Ulmer, of Laurel Miss, one of the members of the unfortunate party, was badly in- jured. Her right leg was broken by the fall and in addition, she was injured iuternally. R. L. Roberts, who is stopping at 609 St. Charles, sustained a sprined ankle, while the other members of the excaped without all received a thorough wetting. In the party there were Miss Alice Ainswarth, Miss Fanny McKee, Miss Alice Hinton, all residing at 1352 Camp: Mr. and Mvs. Roy Hollingshead, 5015 Camp: Mr. and Mrs. L. H. Roberts, 816 St. Charles; Miss Mary Ulraer, 1352 Camp, and R. L. Roberts, 609 St. Charles. The entire party arrived a day or two ago from Mississippi, and yesterday afternosn went out to the lake. They walked out the long warf until they came to the little bridge leadeing from the big warf to the revetment, just be- fore the entrance of the South- ern Yatcb Club is reachsd. This old warf has been out of repair for a long time, and has been considered unsafe. The members of the party had reach- ed the middle of the walk when it gave way, and the entire crowd was very unceremoniously pitch- ed into the lake. Miss Ulmer was on the bottom, and in the crush her leg was broken near the knee., John Freeland, keeper of the southern Yatch and- Mr. Tom Nobles, a member of that Club, ran to the assistance of the unfortunates and helped to re- spue them frem the waist-deep water. Ulmer was carried over to Freeland.s house where Mrs. Freeland and Mrs. Viyet Geane, a-relative of one of the members of the Club, who was at the club- house at the time, and the unfor- tunate young lady as confortable 'ajj possible. She was carried to the train and the ambulance telephoned for. Upon the arival of the tfain at the the students pronounced the injuries serious' and took the young jady to 'the hospital, 'C The other ladies in the party provided with blankets in; the'Southern Yatch Club.to pro- tect them from the cool night Mrs. Ulmer is a resident of daughter of Mr. A; B.
