                LeRoy Ellsworth Waite, aged 8, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Waite of 114 West Fourteenth street, Tyrone, died at the Altoona hospital at 8 o’clock last night as the result of a fracture of the skull he sustained in a bicycle accident.

                The lad was riding his wheel near his home about 4 Sunday afternoon, when turning out to avoid an automobile, he lost control and crashed into a wall being thrown head first against the stones. He was treated by the family physician and that evening brought to the Altoona hospital, where he was unconscious until the time of his death.
