Saturday Dr. Noe announced through the West Virginian that his hospital equipment would not be complete without a Victrola. Senator C. W. Watson yesterday had a large Victrola taken , to the hospital together with a complete outfit of records. The Victrola is very popular at the hospital and doubtless has a good effect on the children. Yesterday being Sunday many of the parents and other sear relative! took advantage of the opportunity to visit their children at the hospital. The children were more than glad to see father and mother and natural!]' were anxious to return home with them. Besides the parents there were several physicians from over the state at the hospital. The establishment at Traction park is a good example of an emergency hospital and before it is torn down will be visited by many physicians. une Dig auumua iuai> ad uuue nuu^u today Is a new residence quarters being erected tor the six nurses. This will be a three roomed building and will be given over entirely to the nuries. Previous to this time the nurses have been sleeping In tents. The new building should be completed by tomorrow ready to be occupied by the nurses. Dr. Noe was called to the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Gregory on Saturday evening where It was thought that another case of infantile paralysis had developed. The case was thorouhgly investigated and found out not to be poliomyelitis.

The collision occirred In a eurre neither motonnen seeing he approaching car until they were within a few feet of one another. That both the motormen escaped isjury Is considered almost a miracle. When the accident occurred the "line" car was backing to the rear with Mr. McElfrest itandfng within a coil of wire rope. When the crash came he was pinioned against the cab and horribly mashed. It took some time to extricate him from the debris but ai soon as possible he was rushed to Fairmont Hospital No. 3 where it was found necessary to amputate one of hie legs. He did not rally and died within a short time after entering the hospital. Clyde Darrah, who'was also on the car, sustained a badly wrenched back, and was also taken to the hospital but later was removed to his home on Mt. Vernon avenue where he is resting well and it is thought he will rapidly recover. The "line" car was en route from Viropa siding to Bingamon and stopped to leave some workmen. When the car started something fell from the car ami it was backed in order to recover the object. As it wag running south the express car rounded the curve and crashed Into the car which was literally mashed to pieces. The car which was south bound was operated by Motorman Davis and Conductor Rhodabaugh. Herbert Hall was operating the "line" car with McElfresh as his flagman. Mr. McElfresh la survived by six children. Mrs. Joseph Harvey, of Eldora; Okey, Russell, Bessie and Lawrence, all residing at Hoult. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore T.
