LEWIS, Miss Emma (also PORTER, Cobey)
 
Springfield, Oct. 7 (AP) — Two Maryland residents were killed and four other persons hurt, two probably fatally, in a head-on collision between two automobiles six miles east of here early today. The dead are Miss Emma Lewis, Cumberland, Md., R.F.D. 1, and Cobey Porter, Eckhart Mines, Md. The injured are Mr. and Mrs. C. Lear Twigg, both 37, of Cumberland; Edmond Lewis, 75, father of the dead girl and Mrs. Twigg, and Eugene C. Phillips, London, Ohio, insurance agent. The Maryland car, believed to have been driven by Twigg, met the Phillips car head on, on the National Highway at Harmony near here. The Maryland party was enroute home from the Century of Progress at Chicago. Souvenirs of the fair were strewn over the highway. Lewis and Phillips suffered fractured skulls, and physicians expressed doubt that either would recover. The Twiggs, although rendered unconscious, were not seriously hurt. All of the victims were brought to the City Hospital. Miss Lewis, who had been a saleswoman for the Cumberland Cloak and Suit Company for some years, resided in LaVale. She had been away all week but had worked at the store last Saturday. Mr. Porter paid her attention. He resided with his mother, Mrs. Mary Ann Porter on the Thermestile farm near Eckhart, where he also operated a fuel mine. He was a son of the late Morrison Porter. Surviving, besides his mother, are four brothers, Marshall, residing on the farm, and Walter, Nathan and Russell, of Eckhart, and seven sisters, Mrs. John Kreitzburg, Clarysville; Mrs. Richard Watson, and Mrs. Lulu Snyder, Eckhart; Mrs. Richard Loar, La Vale; Mrs. David Stark and Mrs. Harry Craze, Frostburg; and Mrs. Frank Bloomer, Baltimore. Mr. Porter was 34 years old. Mr. Twigg is the carrier on Route 5, Cresaptown territory. It was stated at the postoffice that he was on vacation.
