   Advocate (Newspaper) - February 15, 1964, Victoria, Texas                                AD 118th 281 TELEPHONE HI 5-HS1 VICTORIA, TSXAS, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1964 Established THEY BEAT DEATH Pat Sniuiclcrs Jr., 3, Displays Bruises From Car Mishap (Ulchlson) Tough Boy, Good Lord Ely JAMES SIMONS Advocate Staff Writer "He's a pretty lough little boy." That's what Pat Saundei's of 3303 Gtendale remarked Friday as he looked at a hospital bed occupied by his three-and-a-half year'- old son. Pat Jr. Although suffering from multiple bruises, shock and an injury to his jaw, young Saundcrs was in a cheerful mood as he played with toys on the bed. He had every right to be happy because the evening before he had escaped death or serious injuries despite being run over by t w o wheels of (he family car which had been set in mo- lion by his two-year-old brother, Bud. The incident was still fresh in his mind an d t w o sets of tire tracks were still visible on his back and across the calf of one of his legs to prove it. He was playing in the driveway of the Saunders home Thursday evening and was behind the car, regard- ed as one of Hie heaviest on the market, when Bud acci- dentally hit the handle on the emergency brake caus- ing (he vehicle lo roll back- wards. The car knocked Pat to the ground and in the path of the vehicle which rolled over him and into the street. Saunders said one of the wheels rolled up the boy's spine, struck a glancing blow at his head and veered a w a y. His teeth were mashed against his jaw causing the only injury of any major concern. Young Saunders was on his feet by the time h i s mother and other occu- pants o( the residence reached him. He was taken to Citizens Memorial Hospital where X-Rays revealed lhal there were no bones broken. It was a long day for Saunders for he had earlier held grand opening for Ken- tucky Fried Chicken, 801 E. Rio Grand Blvd., which he operates. Friday, young Saunders was anxious lo get out of the hospital. He readily posed for an Advocate pho- tographer and was in such a good mood that he kissed everybody in the room in- cluding (he photographer. His dad summed it up this way: "The good Lord was with us. We feel very fortunate." 12 Ce Ruby Must Stand Trial In Dallas, Judge Rules Chamber Calls for Study Of Train Movement in City By HENRY WOLFF JR.
