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.

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."

MICHAELS, James Harmon

Frostburg, Dec. 3 — Pinioned under a rock fall yesterday in a small fuel mine at Barrellville, this county, James Harmon Michaels, 40, of Wellersburg, Pa., died at 2 a.m. today in Miners Hospital. He suffered internal injuries and a fractured pelvis. Michaels was working with the mine owner, Melvin Reed, Barrelville, when the section of roof caved in. Reed summoned other miners, who extricated the injured man, and took him to his home, where he was examined by Dr. Henry J. Bostetler, Mt. Savage, and then taken to the hospital. District Mine Inspector Frank T. Powers said today that he believed the man's injuries were aggravated by the fact that no ambulance was used to carry Michaels, who was taken home and to the hospital in automobiles. Powers also commented that accidents in small mines are increasing because proper supervision is lacking. The Reed operation is known as the Parker High Grade Mine and six men are employed. Michaels is survived by his widow, Mrs. Rosalie (Saylor) Michaels; his mother, Mrs. Peter Michaels, Barrelville; a daughter, Dawn; two brothers, Wilbert, of Barrelville, and Tony Michaels, of Akron, O.; and three sisters. Funeral services will be held at 2 p. m. Sunday at the home, near Wellersburg, with interment in the Lutheran Cemetery there.
