BOY SHOT AT PLAYING "BAD MEN" MAY DIE
Five-Year-Old Son of Robert Lehman in Hospital in Bismarck
Playing hold-up may result fatally for Wilfert, 5-year-old son of Robert Lehman, farmer, living west of Hebron.
Mike Sayler, 13, and a few other boys were playing with a 22-calibre rifle at being bandits when Mike ordered the other boys to hold up their hands. They did. The gun was discharged, the bullet entering the Lehman boy's upper jaw and crashing through his skull. Physicians hold little hope for his recovery. He is in a Bismarck hospital.
