Mr. and Mrs. Jaquish were driving toward Elmira and in trying to avoid hitting a box in the road he failed to make the turn and crashed into the guard posts. The force of the impact sheared off four posts and the machine rolled over the steep embankment at this point coming to rest headed toward Troy. Mr. Jaquish was thrown through the window on his wife’s side and was instantly killed. His skull was fractured and his neck was broken. Mrs. Jaquish was cut and badly bruised, but managed to crawl through the window and run to the nearest neighbors for help. Mr. Jaquish was born in Covington Township, April 2, 1907.

Soper of Mansfield. For the past eight years he was a well-known employee of the Cross Trail Restaurant in Mansfield. His pleasant smile and cheery disposition were characteristics of his life. He not only will be missed by his wife and family, but by his friends and neighbors who bore loving tribute to him by many beautiful flowers. The deceased is survived by his wife, Doris Soper Jaquish; his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph S. Jaquish of Mansfield, Pa.; a brother Dr. Charles Jaquish of New Castle; Mrs. Russell Marvin, Covington; Mrs. Mary Smith, Mansfield; Mrs. George Michaels, Throop, Pa.; Mrs. Harry Miller, Lancaster, Pa.

We know we have omitted many, but, friends, alumni notes are not the
easiest things to get, and if you will let us know where you are, what
you are doing, we will try to do better next time.
