Notes or transcript:  “Those boys who make a practice of jumping on moving cars and those that climbed up onto the box cars on the switch near the elevator, for the purpose of jumping onto the passenger as it pulled into our city will be the center of attraction in a funeral procession some of these fine days. If the parents of these boys will not put a stop to this dangerous practice, then the city authority had better see what they can do.”
