WATERTOWN, Oct. 18, (AP) — Funeral services for Roy DeWall, who was killed in an automobile-train collision here yesterday, will be held Monday.  DeWall was injured when the car he was driving crashed into a diesel switch engine pulling a string of freight cars at a crossing.  He died enroute to the hospital.

I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.
