Ten streetcars were stranded in this spot during Thursday's cloudburst in one of worst traffic tie-ups in area's history. Thousands were stranded as water drowned out cars, stalled public transportation and caused hysteria. More than 1,600 automobiles stalled and many were abandoned as drivers waded through streets filled curb to curb. ' s v' ' - I" ! ' 1 ' ' - ' '' , I- 1 - ' ' - .... i - .

BY MARK BELTAIRE At the 50th birthday party for Wayne County Auditor Charles Edgecomb, Mayor Cobo indicated he prefers his present job to running for a State office. "Please don't take me out of any State race," he joked with a reporter. t$ut i ieel very strongly the responsibility of seeing current civic projects finished." AT EDGECOMB'S PARTY, presided over by Andy MacFarlane of the Building Trades Union, and with Nate Taraow and Paul Sanderson hovering behind the scenes, Edgecomb was presented a' new Mercury. First thing that came with the Mercury was a parking ticket. His friends saw to that. . . . Councilman -Billy Rogell and Spike Briggs, head of the Detroit Tigers, were reminiscing. Recalled Rogell crucial game with the Cleveland Indians, that hit Rick Ferrell smack in the middle lour dad told me that was the nicest throw I ever made." o A PAIR OF LOCALITES, plus a Recorder s judge, aren't very happy with the way the law is prescribed and administrated in Michigan. For example, two Detroiters signed personal commitment papers for a chap they deemed in need of treatment for alcoholism. About two years later, one of the guardians ran into his charge in the corridors of the City-County Building . . . first time he knew the chap was released. Further investigation revealed that hs had been released, later sentenced to Jackson Prison, released again, and committed once more . . . without the guardians 'knowing a thing about the series of events affecting the man who was in their charge and for whom they were genuinely trying to do a favor. A probate judge they talked with said: "That's beyond our control. I agree that the guardians should be notified when their charge is turned loose. But there's nothing in the State law that requires such notice. We've tried to get the State Legislature to act on this, but it won't." ''.' Judge Joseph Gillis of Recorder's Court recently received a call from Rep. Alvin Bentley in Washington. The congressman asked him to review a case of a man he had assigned to Ionia as criminally insane. The recheck showed that the man had been wounded three times in World War II, was picked up by police as he was phoning the Police Department to come and arrest him because he had thrown a brick through a shop window. That wasn't brought out at the trial. Judge Gillis, figuring the man was mentally ill rather than criminally insane, obtained his release from Ionia. Says he: "I. wonder how many other people I've had committed under the same circumstances." o MAX HANDLER TOOK Joe Slatkin on a fishing trip at his summer home on Burt Lake. Slatkin failed to land a single fish. A trifle discouraged," he borrowed a No. 9 golf iron, from Handler, spent a couple of hours trying practice swings. Suddenly, he heard a commotion in the water nearby, noticed something finny in the lake, swung hard with the No. 9 iron and belted the daylights out of a four-pound bass. Probably the first time in piscatorial history that a fish was landed by a golf club. My Answer BY BILLY GRAHAM QUESTION: Recently my wife and I lost a child. We are now wondering what happened to that one who died before the age of accountability. What hope is there for such a one ? D. E. R. ANSWER: It is quite normal to wonder what has become of such little ones when they leave us. The Bible teaches that God has made provision for them. It says, "God was in Christ personally reconciling the world to Himself not counting their sins against them . . . For God caused Christ, Who Himself knew nothing of sin, actually to be sin for our sakea, so that in Christ we might be made good with the goodness of God." (2 Corinthians, 5:17, Phillips Translation.) So you see, God has made complete provision fpr the sins of all. However, all of us, in one way or another, are brought to the time when we must make a choice either to receive or refuse Jesus as Savior. . Therefore, until that, baby comes to the age of responsibility, the merits of the death of Christ cover his sin. We are either saved or lost depending on the choice we make when we reach the age when we make the choice between self and Christ. FOUNDATION FEARS FLOOD How Are You Fixed for Arks? BY ROBERT SYLVESTER ' NEW YORK Oh, well, nothing much is going to happen to us except that any day now the axis of the world will shift and there'll be a flood just like Noah's. All of this is "authenticated" by big two-column ads being run in many newspapers by the Barber Scientific Foundation of Washington, D. C. The foundation Is selling books and will use the money from the books vto persuade Congress to take action and build boats, moored at every street corner, to save civilization." The foundation also notes with contempt and loathing a "choen few" who are attempting to "build boats for themselves." The' foundation is, somewhat symbolically, headed by a barber named Adam. He is willing to "go into bankruptcy over our head to do it, as money will be worthless and everybody starts with a clean slate after the flood." A the old blues song puts it, better get your hip boots on. Frank Dutcher was walking along Tremont Ave., the Bronx between two young gals. He couldn't help overhearing the following: "Well?" demanded one gal. "Well, what?" "Well, what did Marvin do?" "Oh," said the other gal sadly, "he just snapped on his bow tie and left." IT DEVELOPS that the Indoor Bird Watchers' Society, which discovers rare specimens through the bottom of Martini Glasses, is practically nationwide in scope. Several chapters have sent the column membership cards and an interesting letter comes .from watcher Betty Simons of the Waterbury (Conn.) chapter. At a recent outing . . . er inning ... of her grcup Miss Simons spotted a Fat-headed Card Cheat, a Scarlet-faced Manager, a Busted Ego, a Hesitating Checksnatcher, a Purple-faced Martyr and a rare Often-billed Sourpuss. , Just to keep my membership secure, I got busy myself and in one saloon alone, I spotted a Scissor-faced Backbiter, a Rheinegold Regret and a Dappled Soft-touch. AN OUTDOORS type named Dick Cornish was trapped in a taxicab today and his cab got , behind another hack which was very slow making a turn. The Cornish mahout honked his horn to no avail. He finally found an opportunity to pull around and come even with the loafer in the other cab. He leaned out and yelled : , "Get going, you jerk! You drive like a passenger." The Kiddies' Korner; Rusty Hamer, the eight-year-old who plays Danny Thomas' son on ABC-TV, has been a professional actor so long he takes a pretty adult view of things. He likes dogs, he admits but doesn't own one. "In my apartment house," explains Mr. Hamer, "they don't allow animals or children." Toni and Jan Murray took their five-year-old Celia to her first day of school and also went to get her when it was time for her to come home. Mrs. Murray asked the to what they had taught her in school. "Not much," said Celia. "I have to go back again tomorrow."
