Potomac Fire Company conducted rites at the graves at Philos cemetery for Charles Kalbaugh, Michael, Gilmore and Moran. Members of Potomac Fire Company and Tri-Towns Fire Company in uniform attended all five funerals.
{Pallbearers for all are listed}.
Timothy Gilmore-A native of Thomas, Timothy Gilmore was a son of Mrs. Grace Shaffer Gilmore, Oakland and the late Timothy M. Gilmore. He spent most of his earlier youth in Crellin and and was a graduate of Oakland high school. During World War II, he served as a tank driver with the Army in Africa and Italy and was wounded in the chest. After the war, he served six years with the Maryland State Police, resigning last February to become a guard at the Allegany Ballistics lab at Pinto. He was a member of Victory Post, American Legion, and Potomac Fire Company.

Besides his mother, he leaves four brothers, Marshall, Clyde, Thomas and Paul, all of Westernport, and two sisters, Mrs. Charles Floto, Cumberland, and Mrs. Oliver Long, Arlington, Va.

Police Version of Accident-The accident occurred about 4:52 Sunday morning. The time was established by a broken watch on the wrist of Richard Moran. Trooper First Class, A. M. Sploch, of the Maryland State Police, who investigated, said that Gilmore, driving Moran's 1951 hardtop convertible, had just rounded a bend and apparently was confused by the headlights of another vehicle parked along Gilmore's side of the road. Apparently thinking the recently relocated road lay to the right of the headlights, Gilmore swerved off the road onto a gravel shoulder. By the time he realized his mistake, it was too late to stop. The car skidded several hundred feet, careened back to the road, and smashed against the front of the parked car. Four of the victims were thrown from the car with only Earl Kalbaugh and Richard Michael still in the back seat. Sploch said all of the dead except Charles Kalbaugh died instantly. Witnesses said Kalbaugh called for help then crawled under a fence at the George M. Barton farm and died of internal injuries. Dr. H. V. Deming, deputy county medical examiner, said the others died of skull fractures, internal injuries and neck fractures. James. F. Thompson, the sixth occupant, was thrown from the vehicle and later was moved to Sacred Heart hospital, Cumberland, where he is recovering from his injuries.

Occupant of Parked Car Hurt.

Miss Joreetta Proudfoot, 21, of Rowlesburg, the only occupant of the parked car, sustained severe lacerations of the face and eyes when her head was thrown through the windshield by the impact. She told police she had been drowsy and thought she was dreaming when she saw the other car careening wildly towards her. Lewis H. Allwine, 24, of Highland, N. J., operator of the parked car, stated that he and his brother, Ernest, had pulled off to the left side of the road when they were flagged by Wilbur Fresh, a stranded motorist, of Akron, O., who had developed engine trouble. Gilmore's wife, Mrs. Betty Guy Gilmore, arrived at the scene of the accident about two hours later, unaware of her husband's death. Police said she was anxious over her husband's failure to return home and she stopped at the scene as officers were preparing to leave."

KARP, (child) Coleman

EIGHT CASES PARALYSIS - Three Victims of Infantile Disease in Somerset County Have Died. Infantile Paralysis claimed another young life in this region Sunday. In addition a sudden outburst of the disease at Confluence in this county resulted in an extra ordinary joint meeting of the board of health and the borough council Sunday afternoon. As a result of the session, a rigid quarantine on all children in the borough for the next two weeks was ordered. All little ones are to be kept on the premises of their parents and all churches, Sunday Schools and other assemblages are to be closed until the quarantine is lifted. The little chap, who died is Coleman Karp, four-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. David Karp of Barnesboro. He died at 4 o'clock Sunday morning after three days' illness. The child suffered from what is known as ascending paralysis, which begins in the feet and successive limbs until it reaches the vitals. The child died when the respiratory and cardiac centers in the medulla oblongata were paralyzed, making respiration and heart action impossible. The remains of the child were taken to Johnstown in an auto hearse and were buried in the Hebrew Cemetery at Giestown. Five new cases developed Sunday at or near Confluence, as follows: Ruth, seven-month-old daughter of Arch Kennedy of Dumas, a village near Confluence; James, two-year-old son of Frank Havner of Confluence; May, three-year-old daughter of C. A. Cunningham of Confluence; Vincent, four years old and Eva, three year old children of Albert Hyatt of Confluence. The Fox children, who first became ill at Confluence, returned Sunday to their home in Conshohocken, Pa. The situation in Cambria and Somerset Counties, outside of the places named, is said to be unchanged. Elsie, the eight year old daughter of W. A. Bird, of Listonburg died yesterday after only one day illness. There have been in the past few weeks in all thirteen cases of infantile paralysis in Somerset County.
