Killed By Falling Tree

A former resident of Wallowa county, Fancho Stubblefield, lives at Lehman Springs, 90 miles south of Pendleton, where one man was killed and another seriously injured by a falling tree Saturday night. The two were cutting wood for Mr. Stubblefield and slept in a bunk house, which was crushed by the tree.

Oliver Young was killed and Vic McCormick was injured. Mrs. Stubblefield telephoned a report of the accident and Coroner Pat Folsom of Umatilla county and Mr. George Smith of Pilot Rock broke a path thru the snow from Ukiah to the springs and took out the body and the injured man.
