A seven year old Grand Prairie boy underwent open heart surgery on Tuesday, $ 14OO1. ! Sept. 3. Doctors hope the oper- ation will correct a hole in his heart, a defect he has had since birth. The young man is Roy Ray Honey, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Honey of Grand Prairie. He is also the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. O. R. Cantrell of Grand Prairie, former resi- dents of Malakoff. Gloria Ann also attended the Malakoff schools. The operation was performed at Children's Medical Center in Dallas where Roy has been taken for treatment since he was about six weeks old. In preparation for the surgery, Roy underwent a cardiac cath- eterization in July. Mrs. Haney says her son also suffers from a kidney d~- feet, and has had seven opera- tions for this condition since he was about two years old. THE MALAKOFF NEWS Malakoff, Texas Friday, Sept. 6, 1968 Page Three "He eats all the time, but just can't seem to gain any weight," said the mother, not- ing that Roy is about five to !0 pounds lighter on the scales that most little boys his age. Since he can't participate in many activities that most youngsters do because it would be straining on his heart, Roy watches a lot of television. His favorite programs are cartoons that come on in the afternoon. "And I have to watch him to see that he doesn't get into too much scuffling," commented Mrs. Haney. ROy has a sister, Dale Lee, four years old and a brother, Charles Wayne, who is two. Doctors have told the Haw ey's that Roy will probably have to be given at least 10 pints of blood during the open heart surgery. He checked into the hospital on Monday. .

The pastor, Rev. O. B. Cook, will officiate the ceremony. Friends and rela- fives of the couple are invited. "But none of our employees noticed ~hat those y~ungsters were doing," protested the company in court. "Surely we are not required to keep our escalators under con- stunt surveillance." The court agreed, and the wom- an's claim was turned down. Authorities differ as to whether an escalator should be classified as a "'common carrier"--Iike a train or a bus. However, they all agree that the management is not an absolute guarantor of a passenger's safety. Some risk is inherent in the very nature of this means of trans- portation. Take this case: A woman approached an esca- lator, leading her small son by the hand. But just as she moved onto the first step, the boy stopped short in fright. When the woman reached back for him, she lost her balance and fell. But again, after a court hearing, the judge could find no grounds for pinning responsibility on the man- agement. He said the cause of the accident was simply "'the effect the escalator has upon a person who steps upon it without putting his body in corresponding motion." Nonetheless, a store is indeed obliged to prevent an accident when it reasonably can--either by ade- quate supervision or by proper up- keep of the equipment. Thus: A man who fell because an esca- lator gave a sudden, violent jerk won a damage award. So did a woman who slipped on a gob of grease, which had remained on an escalator step long enough for store employees to have noticed and re- moved it. On the other hand. even if the management does see danger, there may be no practical way to avoid it. In one case the hostess in a hotel spied a drunk weaving his way toward the escalator. Though she tried to restrain him. he pushed her aside, stepped aboard, and toppled backward to the floor. After~ ard, the man complained that the ho',tess "should have stopped me by force." But a court decided that was too much to ex- pect--especially since he weighed twice as much as she did. All in all, the court concluded, the man had no one to blame but himself.
