LeRoy Bedell killed in traffic crash
LeRoy Bedell of Norwalk, State Highway Patrolman, was fatally hurt in a traffic accident seven miles east of Bellevue on Route 59 this afternoon about 4 o’clock.
He died in Bellevue hospital.
Bedell was riding a motorcyle. Details of the accident had not been recorded at the Highway Patrol office at Bellevue at the time the news of the fatality was received.
Whitney Field House project gets approval
It is announced that the field house project at Whitney Field, a government undertaking, has received the official O.K. at Washington and that work on the structure will be started soon. The cost will be about $7,000.
The house will add vastly to the convenience and service of those who use the field. It will provide shelter in the case of rain and will be particularly valuable in football seasons to shelter the players during the halves and to enable them to change football togs if necessary.
Whitney Field has been developed into an outstanding athletic field. It has two football fields, baseball diamond, tennis courts, a quarter mile cinder track and a swimming pool.
Lamphier’s only hope is with Davey
Ethol B. Lamphier, awaiting execution in death row at the Columbus pen on the charge of slaying Mrs. Katherine Wilde of Norwalk, has permitted the 30 days to elapse in which he could have filed exceptions as a preliminary step to carry the case to the court of appeals.
His only hope now is a reprieve from Gov. Davey.
