Gerald,

The following appeared in the Dallas Morning News on May 14, 1939 Sec I Page 13

ALLEGED DOPE GANGSTER CAUGHT, PLEADS GUILTY

Buell Cantrell said to be connected with some of the higher ups in a Dallas dope ring, was arrested Saturday and pleaded guilty to possession of twenty-eight grams of morphine at a hearing before United States Commissioner John Davis.

Although confiscation of heroin and marijuana is fairly common, morphine is seldom seized as it is much more expensive. Cantrell was placed under a $1500 bond.

NOTE: There are several articles on Buell in reference to dope. There is also an article about Buell being involved in a robbery.

Here is another article of interest to you. This appeared in the Dallas Morning News on December 3, 1951 Part III Page 1

TRUCK VICTIM IDENTIFIED AS DALLAS MAN

Dallas County's 100th traffic victim of 1951 was identified Sunday as Hillary Hodges, 68, of 3501 Hancock in Dallas.

Hodges was killed when struck by a truck Saturday night as he pushed a bicycle westbound in the 3100 block of East Illinois, near Overton Road. Police were unable to identify the traffic victim Saturday night.

Police said a car driven by Dillard Todd Redd Jr., 17, of 3924 Linfield, struck the man. Police said Hodges was walking in the middle of the traffic lane and was wearing dark clothes.

Funeral services were Hodges will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at McCullough Funeral Chapel in Mesquite. The Rev. James H. Pruitt will officiate. Burial will be in Kleberg Cemetery in Dallas County.

Hodges' survivors include a sister, Mrs. I. S. Cantrell, and a brother, J.R. Hodges.

Pallbearers will be nephews, Ralph Cantrell, Homer Cantrell, Richard Stepherns, Roland Hodges, J.D. Harris and Ed Parkhill.

I hope these help!!
