Mrs. Lida Leddy had the misfortune to fall on her front porch when a wind and dust storm hit and the screen door knocked her down and broke her hip. She underwent surgery on June 29th at the Cheyenne Hospital by Dr. Shriner of Hobart and Dr. Buster of Cheyenne. Mrs. Leddy is doing just fine, she was 91 years young on June 28th. She has lived on the same farm, northeast of Roll, for 69 years. This is the first time she has been in the hospital in her life, so it was all a new experience for her.
