Eldo Bagwell, 16, died at Jackson Hospital last night, failing to revive from an anesthetic.

The youth, who is employed at Olney shoe factory, went to the bathroom at his home, 408 W. Locust street, to wash his head and cut his hand on the broken handle of the water faucet, the cut tearing a ligament in the palm of his hand. He was taken to Jackson Hospital to have the ligament tied up, and was given an anesthetic. He failed to revive from it.

He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Mattie Bagwell, of Olney, one sister Mrs. Jack Davis of LaFollette, Tenn., and four brothers, Ercy Henry of Marion, Clessie Bagwell and Leland Bagwell of Olney, and Ansel Bagwell, U. S. Army, recently injured in the Italian fighting but now back with his unit in the front lines in Italy.

Funeral services for Eldo Ivan Bagwell, 16 year old son of Mrs. Mattie Bagwell, will be held at Porter-Schaub Funeral Home Sunday at 2 p. m, Rev. A. O. Jacobs will officiate.

Interment at Haven Hill.
