WRECKAGE OF CAR IN WHICH THREE WOMEN DIED: Onlookers view the scattered remnants of the two-door sedan in which three women, two of them from Ann Arbor, were instantly killed as the New York Central railroad's crack streamliner, the Mercury, crashed into the car at Dexter yesterday afternoon. The dead were Miss Theckla Louise Frank, 68, and Mrs. Minnie F. Drittler, 75, sisters, of 333 S. Division St. and Mrs. Dorothy Sager, 40, wife of Prof. Ward Sager of Central State Teachers College, Mt. Pleasant, who was visiting here during his graduate studies at the University.

NEW TRAIN WHIZZES UNDER NEW BRIDGE: The New York Central's new Aerotrain flashes into Ann Arbor under the new Huron Valley Bridge on its maiden run from Chicago to Detroit. Hundreds of Ann Arbor residents saw the lightweight, silver speedster snake its way through the city yesterday. The train made the Chicago-Detroit run in four hours, cutting more than an hour off the regular running time between the two cities.

Village of Dexter: Located in the extreme northwest corner of Scio township is Dexter village, one of Michigan's oldest communities. Trees abound in its residential areas. The business district looms in the foreground and the white strip heading out toward the top of the picture is M-132 which links Dexter with Ann Arbor. The New York Central Railroad line, in the foreground, passes around the village's northern edge and here turns toward Chelsea. Dexter was founded by a famous Washtenaw county judge, Samuel W. Dexter.
