Inscription.  
"It (streetcar 230 on the College Hill line) is a moving...collection of junk, rattling and torturing its inmates in a manner that would bring tears to the eyes of the turnkey of a Russian prison...If you can stand up in the car for a mile after dinner and still retain your dinner, life insurance is superfluous in your case. You will live forever."

Wichita Eagle, June 1919
