The pitiful fragments of the body of the once-happy school bov—the head missing, appar- ently garroted by a copper wire twisted around the torso; both feet, one arm and part of the other gone—were buried yester- day by the grief-stricken par- ents. The case was officially listed as a "homicide" in police rec- ords, and the manhunt for the boy's murderers began. Examine Vital Organs The vital organs were remov- ed from the body and taken to Grassland hospital at East View, N.

Other West Texas cities had joined in a triumvirate to route the new airmail line west of Sweetwater. It was up to Sweetwater to present its own case which is being done in the best possible manner.

This Spring they have decided to pull a little of the home town idea because they are of the opinion that the majority of Sweetwater people will never know the difference. To carry out their scheme they started ysterday by running an AD- VERTISEMENT in the Sweetwater Reporter as a Sweetwat- er organization, giving their telephone number and street ad- dress. If you will look up the street address and telephone number, you will find that it is a local garage where they store a truck.
