The death of the plucky young ster was not caused by the ailment that had kept his left leg in a cast for the last 2V2 years, but by a tumor at the base of his brain. He died Tuesday in Gallinger Hos pital after an operation. Billy, who lived at 6316 Seventh street N.W., was the pride of the neighborhood. Countless friends had visited him at home and in Gallinger Hospital, where he had undergone three operations. Hope Never Faltered. He was 15 months old when he first began walking. It was only several months later that his family noticed him limping. When taken to the hospital doctors found that several inches of bone was missing in his left leg. In its place was fibrous tissue which doctors said gave the appearance of another leg joint. It was then that Billy realized it was more difficult to hop, skip and run with his friends, especially with that heavy cast on his leg. But his was the courage of youth and his hope never faltered through two operations. His mother, Mrs. Eloise Haislip Fague, gave five inches of the bone in her left leg to fill the space left by her child’s removed “false Joint.” Yet another operation had to be performed when skin was grafted from his body to replace the dead tissue. "The tough luck kid,” as neigh bors murmured in their prayers, never missed a day that his father, Ferguson Fague, retired Census Bureau employe, and World War I Artillery captain, didn’t push him four miles in the wheel chair to get a popsicle, say hello to the fireman he knew, or maybe feed the birds in the park. Then there was that fire alarm box at the comer of Seventh and Whittier street N.W. Billy mem BILLY FAGUE. orized those four numbers on the box. In Hospital Since Jnne. It was on June 20 when Billy entered the hospital for his fourth operation—this time a piece of the bone from his upper left leg and thigh were to be used. That was when doctors discovered the tumor. Billy had been in the hos pital since. Just before he went to the operating table Tuesday his father whispered in his ear that the boy’s special friend, “Nate,” who sold him the popsicles had bet a quar ter he’d forgotten the number on the fire box. Billy quoted the four numbers—8389—in rapid succes sion and his black eyes flashed Just a little brighter than usual when he said: “That’s five more popsicles for me when I leave here, Dad.” In addition to his parents, Billy is survived by two sisters, Miss Anne Fague, of the Seventh street address, and Mrs. Virginia Brady, Arlington, and a 10 - year - old brother, Tommy. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. tomorrow in the Hines funeral home, 2901 Fourteenth street N.W. Burial will be in Arlington Cemetery. 3 Negroes First Victims Of New Anti-Mask Law ly th» Associated Press OZARK, Ala., Aug. 4.—Three self-styled Negro Ku Kluxers who put on sheets and chased two Ne gro girls down an Ozark street the night of July 14 face fines ranging up to $500 apiece. The three were the first persons arrested under Alabama’s five week-old anti-masking law, which forbids the wearing of masks or hoods in public. They accused the Negro girls «f misconduct, State Investigator C. S. Prier said today. "We need some kind of organ ization to stop these girls, Prier quoted one of the trio, Tommie Johnson, as saying. "We ought to whip them.” A whimsical touch was added to the episode when the three Ne groes wrote threatening notes to themselves to "get out of town” in the apparent hope, Mr. Prier said, that relatives would provide them with traveling expenses. Besides Johnson, those arrested were Raymond McClendon and Robert Edward Lee Miller. A fourth member, a minor, was turned over to juvenile authorities. Two other men are being sought, Mr. Prier said.
