NINE IN TEXAS DIE VIOLENTLY
By The Associated Press

At least nine persons died violently in Texas over the Memorial Day holiday.

Traffic took at least three lives and two others drowned during the 30-hour period from 6 p.m. Wednesday until 12 p.m. Thursday. Four persons were shot to death.

Only one death was reported Wednesday night. Charles Hunsaker, 45, who had a long police record as a gambler, was shot to death outside his tavern in Dallas.

Deaths Thursday included:

Alfred Mokry, 15, drowned while swimming in a stock tank on the Johnny Hyzak farm six miles northeast of Granger.

Roger Dale Stone, 2, of Dallas, drowned in a pond on a farm where his family was visiting near Wolfe City.

Frank Singleton, 32, of Galveston, was killed when his car struck a freight train box car.

Jimmy Stagg, about 55, was killed in San Antonio when he was struck by a hit-and-run truck, police reported.

Three persons were found shot to death in San Antonio in separate shootings. Each victim had a gun beside them.

They were Adolf Barkowitz, 44, a grocer; Vernon Bell, 70, a city public service board employee who had been in ill health, and Frank Russell, 65, a Bexar County investigator, also reported in ill health recently.
