obit: Andrew Maroz
Kilgore, Texas, May 26.-- Andrew Maroz blew himself to bits today with two sticks of dynamite he propped between his legs and ignited as he sat in his automobile.
Nearby stood his divorced wife, Mrs. Virginia Sill Maroz, and his six-year-old stepdaughter, Anne Marie Sill. Longview hospital attendants treated them for cuts and possible fractures.
Maroz, despondent furniture repair man, lighted the explosive sticks after his divorced mate and stepdaughter refused to get into the automobile. Bits of Maroz's body were found scattered around the death scene.
Several notes were left -- one to the public which requested that he be cremated. Justice of the Peace Fred hadaway gave a suicide verdict.
