GALION, April 7 - The body of John Allwardt, 10, nephew of Miss Elizabeth Allwardt of Galion, who was instantly killed Thursday morning in Detroit when he was crushed between two street cars, will be brought to Bucyrus Monday night, for burial in Oakwood cemetery Tuesday.

John's father, Lt. Commander Henry Allwardt, who was cabled aboard his ship, the USS Fall River, now in the Pacific, will be unable to return home for the services. He is to be discharged next month after five years in the Navy.

William Graetz of Bucyrus, grandfather of the youth, has been visiting at the Allwardt home in Detroit for two weeks.
