BOY RUNS AWAY; KILLED BY TRAIN

Edwin SCHWEGLER, 19, 1223 Walnut Street, and his brother Albert started out "to see the world" when their father, Victor Schwegler, police librarian, died a year ago.

Wednesday the mangled body of Edwin will be brought back to Cincinnati by the living brother. The brothers were beating their way on a freight train near Akron Monday, when Edwin fell from the top of a box car. He was ground to death under the train's wheels.

The boys' mother, Mrs. Mary Schwegler, gave up her home when her sons went away and is living with relatives in Cumminsville.
