A GRAND STAND FALLS
Many Person Hurt During a Ball Game
at Oelwein, Ia.
OELWEIN, Ia., July 23-Just as the crowd was cheering a good play made by a member of the Dubuque Club at the West Union Baseball Park Monday afternoon, the grand stand gave way, throwing 500 people into one struggling mass on the ground “below” and piling upon them boards and shingles from the roof above. Few escaped without bruises and scratches of some kind. The most seriously injured are C. W. Clemmens, ex-county attorney, internally injured; Charles Shrader, of Randalia, Ia., right leg broken.
