ON WAY HOME: Students in jovial spirits lined the tracks of the New York Central railway yesterday waiting for the special west-bound train which would take them home for the Christmas holidays. The train for Chicago left here at 2 p.m. and a special for New York and Boston left at 5 p.m. From 900 to 1,000 students were accommodated on the two special trains alone, the local New York Central office reported, and additional students took the trains which ran on regular schedule. Except for a few stragglers, most students who planned to take the train home left Ann Arbor yesterday, to judge from the lines at the ticket office.
