Orland Wheeler, aged 18 years, only child of Mrs. Percy A. Welschonce, died suddenly Wednesday night in the offices of the Morgantown & Kingwood Railroad in the post office building at Morgantown. He remarked he would not be here long as he walked into the office of his step-father, P. A. Welschonce, assistant train dispatcher. He remained a short time and started out, leaving by the rear door. When he reached the narrow alley along the post office building, he was seized with an attack, which resembled an epileptic fit. He was carried into the room and he died forty minutes later. Three physicians worked with him to no avail. His mother had been visiting L. O. Davis at Keyser, W. Va., and accompanied by Mrs. Davis and her daughter, Miss Irene, she reached Morgantown a few minutes after the death of her son.

WHITEMAN, James Francis

A 37-year-old Lonaconing man was killed instantly yesterday when he was crushed under a farm tractor. Maryland State Police identified the victim as James Francis Whiteman, of Castle Hill, Lonaconing. The accident occurred at 4 p.m. on the farm of Frank Henry Getson, about two miles west of Lonaconing on State Route 657. Police said Whiteman was helping Getson, his brother-in-law, on the farm. He was regularly employed by the Harrison Construction Company of Pittsburgh. James Whiteman, 14, a son of the fatally injured man, was riding on the harrow attached to the rear of the tractor at the time. Tfc. Robert Dishong of the State Police, who was summoned to the scene, said Whiteman was operating the tractor in a field when the vehicle "reared up" from the front and toppled over, pinning Whiteman beneath. The Goodwill Volunteer Fire Company sent a rescue truck to the scene and they lifted the tractor from Whiteman's body. Witnesses told Tfc. Dishong that Whiteman apparently froze at the controls when the machine toppled. Whiteman was a son of Simeon Whiteman, Lonaconing, and the late Hattie (Dilfer) Whiteman. He is survived by his father and his widow, Mrs. Viola (Getson) Whiteman; four children, Jean Lynne, James, Thomas and Jacob, all at home; two sisters, Mrs. Joseph Clapper, Bedford; and Mrs. John Ternent, Lonaconing; and two brothers, William Whiteman, Frostburg, and Paul Whiteman, Lonaconing. The body will be at the Eichhorn Funeral Home tonight.
