Cecil Castle, eight-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Castle, 817 Lawndale Avenue, South Bend, was fatally injured at 6 o'clock Tuesday afternoon when struck by an automobile driven by J. H. Whitmark, 607 Baine Ave., South Bend. The child died at the Epworth hospital in South Bend two hours after he was struck by the car. He did not regain consciousness. The lad's parents are both former residents of this city. The father is sometimes known as Cee Castle and Howard Castle. They moved to So. Bend from Rochester some time ago. Lawrence "Friday" Castle, who resides on South Franklin Avenue is an uncle of the dead lad. He is now in South Bend.

Cecil had been playing with other children near his home and was returning to his friends after he had gone to his home and obtained a cloth to place over his eyes. He was placing the cloth across his eyes prior to playing the game of "blind man's bluff" and was thought not to have seen the car as he ran across the street. The youth ran into the rear fender of Mr. Whitmark's auto and was thrown to the street. Coroner B. J. Bolka questioned the driver of the car Wednesday and exonerated him from blame. The child was born in South Bend Oct. 21, 1923. He attended the Muessel school. He is survived by his parents, three sisters, Marie E. Castle , Ellen M. Castle, of South Bend and Mrs. John Kern, of Miami, Fla, brother Paul L. Castle, of South BEnd, also survives.
