Main Themes:Excerpt: Jackie was beginning to realize that the trolley was her own special passage to freedom... Before she could ring the bell to get off, the trolley turned right up Wisconsin Avenue, where it stopped, the conductor announcing the stop. As she scrambled toward the front steps of the car, she saw a man actually come out from a hole in the street... He seemed to be connecting the trolley to some kind of wire... Suddenly she was on the street, facing a gold-domed building that looked like a fancy bank. There, in front of her was the street sign; she was where she wanted to be: Wisconsin Avenue and M Street.
