      A NARROW ESCAPE
Oscoda - Yesterday afternoon as the wrecking tug Winslow was dredging a cut to the barge Wyandotte, wrecked on the beach, the cable to which the line was goied (sic) broke. What might have been a serious accident was narrowly averted. John Delaney was caught by the four-inch line and sustained a compound fracture of the left leg, dislocation of the left shoulder, and bruised.
