Carroll Man Receives News of Death
Of Parent Killed by Germans
Carroll, Aug. 14 Ė Dr. G. Frutiger of this city today received a cablegram stating that his father, a Swiss, had been shot as a spy, presumably by the Germans. The elder Frutiger was on his way across the frontier between Switzerland and Germany intending to come to America to live with his son when he was taken and shot. Dr. Frutiger had been trying to get a cablegram through to his Swiss relatives to find out more particulars, for a number of hours, and as yet been unable to reach them.
