      DALLAS, Tex., March 21.-- Edmond J. Jares, 35, formerly of West and of San Antonio, was killed today when he fell through a glass window and screen from the second floor of the Bower Hotel.  Police tonight had been unable to learn the cause of his fall.
       
      Officers said the room from which he fell was not occupied and his clothes were found in his own room.  Relatives wired authorities here that they would arrive tomorrow or Monday to make funeral arrangements and aid in the investigation of his death.  He is survived by his mother, Mrs. R. Jares, San Antonio; and two brothers, J. J. Jares of San Antonio and William Jares of West.
       
      Jares visited police headquarters yesterday to talk with old acquaintances and went to the emergency hospital for treatment of an attack of indigestion.  He had been here several days.

      Dallas, March 21.-- Edward J. Jares, 39, ex-soldier and traveling salesman, died in a hospital early today after he fell from a second story window of a downtown hotel to the pavement below.  Police held three men and three women found at the hotel for investigation.  Police said they declared they knew nothing about the man until they were awakened by officers after Jares was found unconscious in the street.
       
      Jares registered at the hotel last night under the name of E. J. Brown, police were told by Mrs. B. Gilmer, operator of the hotel.  He fell from a window of a room near the one he had been assigned.  A passerby told officers he heard a crash of glass and saw the man fall.
       
      Charles C. Rader, detective sergeant, said Jares, whom he had known for many years, came to the city hall yesterday to talk with him and complained of feeling ill.  Rader took him to a hospital for treatment.  When they parted he said, "You will hear from me later."
       
      He had told Rader and hospital attendants that he spent all of his money in Fort Worth during the Fat Stock Show while visiting friends there and was trying to borrow funds.
