LASHBAUGH, Benjamin

Frostburg, Md., May 30
Mr. Benjamin Lashbaugh, aged 59[?] years, a highly respected citizen of this place, died at his home on Long Lane Saturday morning.  Mr. Lashbaugh was born at Eckhart Mines and has lived in Allegany county all his life, and followed mining for a livelihood, except several years when he served as a locomotive engineer for one of the coal companies in Lonaconing.  Mr. Lashbaugh was twice married and leaves four daughters and three sons by his first marriage, all living in Allegany county except one son, who is in Peoria, Ill.  His wife was called to New York several weeks ago on account of the serious illness of her daughters and was not at home when he died.  His death was very unexpected, having been a sufferer from miners' asthma for a number of years, causing a weakness of the heart, which was the cause of his sudden death.  The funeral arrangements will not be completed until his wife arrives from New York.

LAVIN, Mrs. Dorothy Jane Butler

A 20-year-old Garrett County woman died late yesterday in Sacred Heart Hospital of injuries she sustained in a headon collision on the east slope of Big Savage Mountain yesterday morning. Mrs. Dorothy Jane Lavin of RD 2, Frostburg, which is just across the Allegany-Garrett county line, was admitted to the hospital about 7 a.m. yesterday in critical condition, suffering from shock, internal injuries and a severe left knee injury. In the less than 12 hours between the time of the accident and the time she died, the young woman was the subject of herculean efforts to save her life. With her liver lacerated, Mrs. Lavin was bleeding profusely and needed transfusions of A positive blood. The hospital asked the local Red Cross chapter for help. The Red Cross alerted its donors, many of whom were immediately released by their employers so they could go to the hospital to give blood. Nearly 70 pints of blood were drawn within a few hours. Meanwhile, Maryland and West Virginia State Police worked out a relay system to bring blood containers from the West Virginia University Medical Center at Morgantown. They also brought fibrinogen, a clotting agent, from Johnstown, and whole blood from the bank at Bedford. At the hospital, two surgeons and the laboratory crews worked all day without a break in a vain effort to save the young woman's life. In less than 12 hours she had been given 65 pints of blood, but the hemorrhaging would not stop. She died at 5:55 p.m. Tfc. T. J. Fiorita of the LaVale Barracks, who investigated along with Sgt. Harry Bosley, said the auto operated westbound by Mrs. Lavin was in the eastbound lane when it collided headon with a pickup truck driven by Ned Olin Wilt of RD 2, Grantsville. State Police received the call at 6:25 a.m. Mr. Wilt was admitted for treatment of lacerations of the face. He was listed as being in fair condition last evening. The Lavin car was demolished, State Police said. Mrs. Lavin had worked all night at a restaurant in LaVale and was enroute home when the accident occurred. Mrs. Lavin was born in Meyersdale and was a daughter of Alton and Velma (Baker) Butler of RD 1, Salisbury. She was the wife of Joseph Lavin. Besides her parents and husband, she is survived by a 10- month-old son, Ronnie Joe Lavin; a brother, Kenneth W. Butler, and two sisters, Darlene and Dixie Lee Butler, all of RD 1, Salisbury. She was employed at the Bruner Donut House in LaVale. The body is at the Durst Funeral Home in Frostburg where the family will receive friends today from 7 until 9 p.m. and tomorrow from 2 until 4 and 7 until 9 p.m.
