PAGE FORTY-FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,1963 ACTIVE DESPITE HANDICAP Carol Woodard, who will be 10 this month, rides a bicycle and plays like a normal child, despite having lost her Overcomes Handicap arms when struck by a train at the age of two. She has plastic arms fitted with steel clips. (AP Wirephoto) Girl, 10, Rides Bicycle, Draws Well Despite Loss of Both Arms SCHROON LAKE, N.Y. (AP)~ Carol Woodard is a sparkling little girl who rides a bicycle and, she says, "can draw real good" —even though she lost her arms at the age of 2. Carol will be 10 Sept. 25 and now is in the third grade despite setbacks resulting from the train accident that maimed her. She wears plastic arms with steel clips for fingers. In 1955, two days after her second birthday, Carol crept out of bed 'at her home in Ticonderoga and toddled along the nearby rail road tracks toward a neighbor's house. Her arms were crushed under the wheels of a freight train. Now, living at a foster home in this Adirondack resort, she has become so adjusted that she was the first to reach a foster brother who fell off his bicycle the other day. She lifted the bike off the boy, Dennis Ford, 10, made sure hp had not been injured, then wheeled the bike to the house. For those who ask how -her hands work, she flashes a smile and explains that the clips move like snap clothespins and are driven by her shoulder movements. She dresses herself, ties her own shoelaces and plays with other children in normal fashion. The Delaware & Hudson Railroad has established a $100,000 trust fund for Carol. Part of the money is being used for medical treatment. The balance will be hers when she is 21. JOHANNESBURG—South African gold reserves are now the highest sihce 1948.
