CLARENCE  WINKLES  MADE  HIGH
DIVE  IN  EAGLE  CREEK  THAT
CAUSED  HIS  DEATH
----------
HAD  MANY  FRIENDS  HERE
----------
          Saturday evening while  Clarence Winkles  and a number of friends, all of Indianapolis, were swimming in Eagle Creek, Winkles made a high dive.  Under the water Winkle's head hit a rock causing his death.  Not appearing above water when he should the police were notified and after a search with grappling hooks the body was found in water 60 feet deep where the stream had been dredged for gravel and sand.
          Mr. Winkles was a half brother of  Mr. Willis Cramer  who lives on the Boggstown road just across the Blue river bridge on North Harrison street.  The funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock at the Second Mt. Pleasant church.  Mr. Winkles had a number of relatives in this county as well as friends in this city.
