ing Fatal Crash.
Myron Easton, 525 IHigh Street,
Lima, Ohio, was killed yesterday
and one other man was injured in
an automobile accident that oc-
cured near Whitmore Lake. Details
of the accident are missing.
Easton was picked up by a
passing motorist and brought di-
rectly to the University hospital
at 4:10 o'clock, where he died ten
minutes later without regaining
consciousness. No account of the
wreck could be determined from
the man who brought them in.
Easton was not a student in the
University, and it is likely that he
was only passing through Whit-
more Lake at the time of the
wreck. His parents, who reside in
1Lima, were sent for immediately
and arrived here late last night.
Although no detail of the accident
were in the hands of the sheriff's
office at midnight last night, they
were working on the case in an ef-
fort to cast some light on the
