HAM M ON D, IN I HAN A COUNTY GEDWITHM E1FL0YECMAI 1BHR BOY KILLED THROWN TO ROAD; SKULL FRACTURED Hammond Shocked by Mid-night Tragedy On Dolton Highway Herbert Hutchins, 21, employed In th Jordan plant at East Chicago son of Mrs. J. C. Hutchins. 11 Kim-bach avenue. s fatally hurt shortly after midnight when he was thrown from his motorcycle "while 'riding on the Michigan City road half a mile south of Tropper's corners. He was taken to the Engle's Memorial hospital at Harvey where he died an hour after the accident. His death was a profound shock to the many friends of the family In Hammond and East Chicago. Herbert had gone for a, ride he-fore retiring: and was going south on the Michigan City road when he ; struck a- hole in the pavement, three feet In diameter and several Inches deep. The motorcycle crashed to ' the road fifty feet beyond the hole. The boy was pinned beneath the heavy motorcycle, unconscious. The most severe of his injuries was a skull fracture. The scene of the accident was In . front of the home of John Hlestand and the unusual roar of the engine when, the motorcycle .struck the pavement attracted the attention of Hlestand and his wife who rushed f out to the road . At the same time an automobiio in wnicn lamest Freel and Jens Jensen of Pullman were riding: stopped at the scene. The motorcycle was lifted from the form of the boy and he was lifted into a car while Hlestand telephoned Dolton for an ambulance. Hushed to the hospital at Harvey he remained unconscious, dying before he coutd.be taken to the op erating- room. Meantime his.na.me was xouna on papers in nis pocKets and a telephone message sent to Mr-. Hutchins whi went to Harvey. He had passed away when she reached the hospital. News of the boy's death spread throughout Hammond early today and caused distress and sorrow. He was a graduate of the Washington public school and the Hammond high school and was preparing to enter Purdue University in February. He was an assistant scout master and leader of the Boy Scout drum and bugle corps. For some time he had "been employed as a draughtman for the O. K. Jordan Co. His employers considered him an ur.usually intelligent, ambitious and loyal employe. Mrs. Hutchins had not wanted Herbert to ride a motorcycle because of the danger of such an accident as he encountered and she had talked to I. K. Scott. Boy Scout Master, about having tht boy give up his machine. Mr. Scott had intended seeing Herbert about it tonight. Another coincidence is that Mr. Scott awakened last night from a dream in which he saw the headlights of a motorcycle coming to him and saw Herbert on the machine. Herbert was the only son. His sisters are Mrs. Florence Hagedorn of Hammond and Mrs. Fred George of Fort Wajne. He was a very lovable clean-minded and manly boy with a bent toward scientific investigation. The inquest was held this afternoon at Dolton and funeral arrangements will be announced tomorrow. PULLMAN OFFICIAL DENIES PROPOSED PLANT PURCHASE Edward P.
