George Greengrass, 81 year-old Winnebago, Indian, living at Dells Dam, was the victim of a brutal assault Friday, when an Indian, said to have been under the influence of liquor, attacked him in the yard of his home. Mr. Greengrass suffered a possible skull fracture, severe bruises to the eyes and mouth, and a terrific beating about the body. He was given treatment at the Krohn Hospital in Black River Falls and removed to the home of Pete Pettibone at Dells Dam. His condition became wore Tuesday with bleeding from the right ear, and he was brought to the Neillsville hospital and placed under the care of Dr. H. W. Housley. Mr. Greengrass says he knows of no reason for the attack. Harry Swallow, about 35 years old, has been logged in the Clark County jail in connection with the case. Mrs. Ruth Blackhawk, 22 years old, is said to have been a witness to the attack.
