Keith L. Myreholt




Sioux Cityan Unhurt in Train Accident

Keith L. Myreholt, seaman second class, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Myreholt, 2214 Rebecca Street, was recently a passenger on a Chicago bound train, eight cars of which were derailed at Waterloo, Iowa.

Although several of the passengers were injured, no one was seriously hurt and Seaman Myreholt escaped without a scratch. In a letter to his mother, he said the accident did not bother him, that he felt a jerk and then someone called for everyone to leave the train. When passengers left that car, they saw eight other cars on their sides.

Seaman Myreholt is a student at the naval training school in the University of Chicago.
