The boy, his six-year old sister, Katherine, and another boy about the same age had been playing about the post office building for some time before the accident happened.

He apparently lost his balance and fell to the concrete. The alarm was given by his sister, who ran home and summoned neighbors and other relatives who went immediately to the scene of the accident. He was carried a few minutes later to the Corsicana Hospital and Clinic in a Sutherland-McCammon ambulance, but was dead when he reached there. Physicians said the cause of death was a fracture of the skull at the base of the brain, and the child died almost instantly.

He was in the second grade at the Sam Houston school during the past semester.

Mrs. Wright, the child’s mother was called and came to the hospital immediately. Mr. Wright is an employee of the Magnolia Pipe Line company, and was also called at once.

The scene of the accident was the subject of much interest to hundreds of Corsicana people, who milled around it for the remainder of the day. When the alarm had been given a large crowd gathered and assisted in bringing the body from the basement entrance, before the ambulance arrived. Mrs. Waits of the Salvation Army, fainted during the excitement but after being carried to the Army Citadel soon recovered and suffered no serious effects.

Surviving are his parents, sister, grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Rascoe, and M. K. Wright, all of Corsicana and other relatives.

The funeral services will be held from the family residence Friday afternoon at 5 o’clock with burial in
Oakwood cemetery. The rites will be conducted by J. L. Hines, minister of the Church of Christ.
