The injured are:

The freight train, south bound, was standing on the main track awaiting the arrival of another crew, as the crew of the train had been on  duty 16 hours. It is said the operator forgot to notify the passenger train of the location of the freight train, which had been held back by a derailment.

The passenger engine was not much damaged and later pulled the train through to Elkins.  The passengers were shaken, but none was injured.
Stewart is survived by his wife and three children, the oldest being 5 years old.

STITCHER, John Henry
 
John Henry (Ditty) Stitcher, 508 Dilley Street, a 35-year veteran of the Cumberland Police Department, died this morning in Sacred Heart Hospital where he had been a patient since October 30. Stitcher's most recent illness developed on October 27 while he was attending the Maryland-South Carolina football game at College Park. Stitcher, a typical "cop on the corner" who retired December 21, 1961 because of ill health, was in "top spirits" last night at the hospital according to some of his fellow officers who visited him. "It's hard to believe, last night he was talking about going deer hunting this season," one officer commented. Stitcher, who was appointed to the force on April 3, 1927 by J. Alfred Reid, police commissioner, was a shining example of his motto: "Give The Boys A Chance". In 1942 he formed the Cumberland Police Boys Club and for more than ten years served as a one-man instructor staff for thousands of boys in Cumberland. The veteran public servant spent his evening hours and days off helping boys in Cumberland. He once commented: "I love all sports, but my greatest thrill from sports is being a 'teacher', not as a participant". The year after the PBC was organized (1943), he worked with more than 150 Cumberland youngsters, teaching them the fundamentals of football, baseball, basketball, volley ball, tennis and above all, clean sportsmanship. These classes were held at Central YMCA, Allegany and Fort Hill high schools, and his work drew favorable comment from public school officials of the area. A check of his service jacket at the Cumberland Police Department clearly reveals his life. It's the largest jacket in the files, but includes only one commendation for meritorious work. The rest of his jacket is filled with his weekly report on activities of the Police Boys Club and includes thousands and thousands of names of "his boys". The lone commendation came on July 28, 1945 when Sen. Clifford Friend became ill in the law office of W. Carl Richards. Officer Stitcher rushed to the office, transported Sen. Friend to the hospital in his private car, and later returned and made arrangements to have Sen. Friend's automobile stored. Officer Stitcher was born June 28, 1897 in Cumberland a son of the late John and Caroline (Becker) Stitcher. He was a veteran of World War I and fought in five major battles with the Second Division. He was a member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church, the Holy Name Society of the church and Aerie 245, FO Eagles. His first wife, Helene (Rice) Stitcher, died in October of 1940. Survivors include his widow, Evelyn (Hockman) Stitcher; four daughters, Mrs. William B. Nies, Rock Hill, S. C.; Mrs. George Silberzahn and Mrs. William Deangler, both of Baltimore, and Miss Margaret Ann Stitcher, at home; five sons, Joseph H. Stitcher, Gardena, Calif.; John H. Stitcher Jr, stationed with the Air Force at Patrick Air Base, Fla.; Charles W., Thomas R. and David A. Stitcher, all at home; brother, P. Frank Stitcher, Cumberland; two sisters, Miss Dorothy Stitcher, and Mrs. Ellen Riley, both of Cumberland, and 16 grandchildren. The body is at the George Funeral Home where the family will receive friends today from 7 to 9 p. m. and tomorrow and Friday from 2 to 4 p. m. and 7 to 9 p. m. The LaSalle Mothers Club will recite the Rosary at the funeral home tomorrow at 8 p. m. Members of the Holy Name Society of St. Patrick's will recite the Rosary on Friday at 8 p.m.
