Accident Proves Fatal

The infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Avis accidentally fell out of an up-stairs window of the Avis home, Monday evening, fracturing his skull. He was rushed to the Hays Hospital, where he passed away two hours later.

Mrs. Avis had put the child to bed upstairs as she did not want him disturbed. She and her sister, Mrs. Joe Kline, went over to the store to get something and while there, Mrs. Kline noticed the child in the window. They started over to the house, but before they had gone a few steps the child had fallen to the ground.
