FAYETTEVILLE DIPHTHERIA EPIDEMIC TAKES SECOND VICTIM; GIRL, SIX, DIES
Minna Mae, six year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Veselka of Fayetteville, died at the local hospital early Sunday morning. Minna Mae had apparently rallied from an attack of diphtheria when an infection developed in her tonsils, which resulted in her death.
It is understood there is another ease of diphtheria in the Veselka home at the present time.
This is the second death from this dread disease, the young daughter of Frank Krenek, of the Bordovice section, having succumbed during the past week.
Several other cases have also been reported in Fayetteville. – LaGrange Record
