Waveland Jan 30 – Luna Bayles, living near here was seriously hurt Sunday when he fell from the running board of a Ford coupe while enroute to Sunday School at Freedom church. His family was riding in the coupe and he was standing on the running board. A rut in the road caused him to fall off. His head struck the frozen ground with force. It was planned to take him to Crawfordsville for an X-ray examination as he had not regained consciousness early Monday.
