DURST, Meno
 
Charges of murder and assault with intent to kill were filed yesterday afternoon in Garrett County against Andrew Balog Baluch, for slaying one man and wounding another at his service station tavern on Route 40 near the Pennsylvania state line early Friday night. Baluch, who admitted the shooting and said he used two .38 caliber revolvers, is being held without bond in Garrett County jail at Oakland pending a preliminary hearing the first of the week. Authorities identified the dead man as Mino (sic:Meno) Durst, 27, Route 1, Grantsville. His companion, Victor Holliday, near Grantsville, who was wounded in the left elbow, remained in satisfactory condition last night at a Confluence, Pa. hospital. He will be held as a material witness in the case. Baluch was captured by Maryland and Pennsylvania State Police a few hours after the shooting at the home of his brother, John Baluch, east of Addison, Pa., a mile from the scene of the shooting in Maryland, south of the Mason-Dixon line. He surrendered without a struggle and was taken to Oakland. Investigators said the two men, Baluch and his wife had been drinking wine in the Baluch tavern during the late afternoon. After leaving, Baluch told police, the pair returned to the closed establishment and Holliday started beating on the door and demanded entrance. Shortly afterwards Baluch opened fire admittedly intended for Holliday and Durst was hit twice in the abdomen. Both men were rushed by car to Confluence, but Durst, son of Emmanuel Durst, was pronounced dead on arrival.

DURST, Ronal Lee
 
A 26-year-old Garrett County man drowned yesterday in Little Meadows Lake about four miles east of Grantsville. The victim was identified as Ronal Lee Durst, of RD 2, Box 39, Grantsville. His body was taken to the Newman Funeral Home in Grantsville, where an autopsy was to be performed by Dr. James H. Feaster, deputy county medical examiner. Maryland State Police said the victim and his brother, William Durst, who is 23, were in a 14-foot aluminum boat fishing in the lake and were about 150 feet from shore. About 3:45 p.m., according to police, Ronal stood up in the boat and it capsized. His brother swam to shore, called for help and got assistance, but Ronal had disappeared beneath the water. His body was recovered at 7:04 p.m. by James Miller, a scuba diver who is a member of the LaVale Rescue Squad, which was called at 4:30 p.m. to search for the victim's body. Mr. Miller, Thomas Pryor and Denton Shroyer, who also are members of the squad, donned diving equipment and probed the lake waters for Ronal's body. They found him in about 15 feet of water, according to a spokesman for the rescue squad.

DURST, Miss Semilda/Simelda
 
A pre-birthday tragedy yesterday afternoon cost the life of Miss Semilda Durst, 74, of 470 Goethe Street, who died less than four hours after she was admitted to Allegany Hospital with severe burns suffered when her clothing ignited at home. Miss Durst, who would have been 75 years old tomorrow, was rushed to the hospital about 1:50 p. m. in a semi-conscious condition and died at 5:30. Dr H. V. Deming, deputy county medical examiner, attributed death to multiple third degree burns of the body, and shock. Miss Durst, according to witnesses, had been in the back yard before she went into the kitchen. Shortly afterwards she appeared on a side porch, her clothing a mass of flames from head to foot. Mrs. Virginia Sailer, who resides next door, noticed the elderly woman and screamed for help. Her brother-in-law, Lloyd Newcomer, 472 Goethe Street, a Celanese worker, along with Mrs. Deborah E. Burkett, 474 Goethe Street, and John Gross, went to Miss Durst's aid and finally managed to extinguish the burning clothes with throw-rugs taken from the kitchen. An ambulance took her to the hospital. When Newcomer entered the Durst kitchen, he found several rugs ablaze on the floor. He tossed them into the yard before the house caught fire. It was surmised that the elderly victim's apron, which had burned off before she ran onto the porch facing Newcomer's home, ignited the rugs. A sister, Miss Edna M. Durst, who resided with the victim, was getting coal from a shed in the yard when the incident occurred. She saw Newcomer and the others on the porch but was unaware of the situation.  Witnesses said the lid on the combination gas-coal stove had been lifted off. Miss Durst apparently caught fire while using her apron to handle a "lid lifter" or from flames in the stove. The lid was "very hot," Newcomer reported. Born in Barton, Miss Durst was a daughter of the late Alphus Henry and Philadelphia Durst. She had resided here about 20 years. Surviving, besides her sister, are a brother, Windom Durst, Barton; a niece, Mrs. J. H. Phillips, and a nephew, A. G. Durst, both of Keyser, W. Va. The body was taken to the Boal Funeral Home, Westernport, where services will be conducted Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. Interment will be in Laurel Hill Cemetery, Moscow.
