DRIVER KILLED IN MT. HOPE AVENUE CRASH. LIGHT POLE BROKEN OFF BY MACHINE.
DISTRICT PLUNGED INTO DARKNESS. HOSPITAL WORKER IS VICTIM. James
CONDON, 23 an attendant at the Rochester State Hospital in South Avenue, was
instantly killed at midnight last night when the automobile in which he was
riding crashed into an electric light pole at Mount Hope Avenue and Menlo Place,
and turned over on him. Injuries sustained by CONDON included a broken
neck, fractured skull and crushed body. Had he escaped those injuries, it
is probable that he would have been electrocuted as the pole into which he
crashed was broken in two places and a tangle of electric wires enmeshed the
automobile. Brilliant flashes of light illuminated the scene as the repair
crew of the Rochester Gas & Electric Corporation worked to remove the wires,
the destruction of which plunged the neighborhood for two blocks into darkness.
When CONDON was found, it was seen that the impact of the car against the pole
had thrown him partly from his car, which then turned over on its left side and
fell on him. Orlo SILCO, 5 Menlo Place, told police he was looking from a
window of his home and saw the CONDON car going north in Mount Hope Avenue
toward the city. He saw the car swerve and then crash into the pole.
He and the neighbors rushed out and found CONDON pinned under his machine.
They tried to liberate CONDON by hacking open the top of the machine but failed
because of danger from the live wires encircling the car. Raymond BABCOCK,
12 Lamberton Park, a taxi driver, reported that he was driving south in Mount
Hope Avenue and saw the machine in which CONDON was coming toward him about half
a block away. He said he witnessed the swerve and the crash. CONDON,
he said, was traveling at a good rate of speed. Why the car should swerve
neither of the witnesses could say. The street was dry and no ice was
present. Police Chief KAVANAUGH and Inspector STEINMILLER and Sergeant
JANSON of the Franklin Street station investigated the accident. The
police notified the Highland Hospital ambulance and the pulmotor crew of the
Rochester Gas & Electric Corporation. Both went to Mount Hope Avenue
but their services were not required. Coroner David H. ATWATER took charge
of the case and ordered the body to the Morgue. Mr. CONDON leaves a wife,
but no children. Mrs. CONDON also is an attendant at the State Hospital.
CATHOLIC WOMEN GIVE CHILDREN YULE PARTY. Members of the Catholic Womens
Club entertained 700 children yesterday afternoon at their annual Christmas
party at the Church of the Annunciation in Norton Street. Preceding the
festivities, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament was given in the chapel for
the children and guests by the Rev. George WEINMAN, pastor of the church.
After the service the children hurried downstairs for their Christmas stockings,
bulging with sweets, religious articles, and simple toys. Mrs. John E.
MARCILLE was chairman of the program, and Mrs. Harry C. WILSON, vice-chairman.
MYSTERY IN DEATH OF PENFIELD GIRL. ACCIDENTAL ASPHYXIATION IN FALL NOW
THEORY. Mysterious circumstances surrounding the death by asphyxiation of
Ruth PARKER, 21, daughter of Mrs. Roy PARKER, Penfield, remained unsolved last
night as county authorities continued their investigation. The girl was
found dead Saturday afternoon by her mother and brother, Roy F. PARKER Jr., on
their return from a shopping tour. She was thought to have been stunned by
a fall from a stool while hanging washing in preparation for a New Years eve
party. In the fall, deputy sheriffs believed, her dress may have turned on
the gas jet and she may have been killed by the deadly vapors that she was
unable to stem. Coroner David H. ATWATER had not completed his
investigation last night and will continue it today. He is expected to
issue a certificate of accidental death resulting from asphyxiation.
Surviving Miss PARKER are her parents, a brother, Roy F. PARKER, Jr. and a
sister, Jean L. PARKER. The body is at 137 Chestnut Street. Funeral
services will be conducted at 2:30 oclock tomorrow afternoon in the chantry
of Christ Episcopal Church, Lawn Street. Burial will be in Mt. Hope
INVALID SAVED FROM LUZERNE STREET BLAZE. An invalid woman was carried to
safety by two firemen yesterday when flames broke out on the second floor of a
two-family house at 48 Luzerne Street. The blaze was discovered by Mrs.
Minnette TAYLOR, 58 Luzerne Street, who while looking out her bedroom window saw
flames coming from the living room window of the other house. Mrs. TAYLOR
telephoned the Fire Department. The blaze was in the upper flat of David
GORDON, owner of the house, and who resided there with his mother, Eva GORDON,
60, the invalid. Smoke was pouring through the hallway and had cut off the
upper exit from the apartment when Truck Company 4, the first apparatus to
arrive in response to the alarm, reached the house. Firemen John RENNER
and John FISHER, after placing a ladder against the window, where GORDON told
them where his mother was helpless, went into the smoke-filled bedroom, and
taking the woman, carried her down the ladder. She was cared for at the
home of a neighbor. Battalion Chief Edward SELKE reported that the fire
apparently started in a davenport in the living room from unknown causes.
Damage was estimated at $700. Occupants of the lower flat were Hiram BODY,
who with his wife, three children, and his mother, were driven to the street by
the smoke. BODY told Chief SELKE that by the time he, his wife and family
were in the street the Fire Department was arriving. It was not until the
blaze was over that the credit of the alarm was traced to Mrs. TAYLOR.
Chief SELKE reported that the entire living room of the GORDON flat was burned
out and that the flames had started into the partitions and would have burned
into a blind attic if the alarm had not been given in time.
MAN CROSSING STREET INJURED BY AUTOMOBILE. Struck by an automobile while
crossing at Culver Road and University Avenue last night, Paul TOKOR, 48, of 330
Humboldt Street, suffered lacerations of the head, left knee and body bruises.
He was taken in an ambulance to the Genesee Hospital. Carl A. JOHNSON, 21,
of 274 Brunswick Street, was the driver of the car, police reported.
FRIENDS AND RELATIVES FETE JOHN HEFTY AT 83. Friends and relatives of John
M. HEFTY, 515 Hayward Avenue, helped him celebrate his 83d birthday with a
dinner at the home of Mrs. H. WILTING, 195 Hazelwood Terrace. Mr. HEFTY,
who was born in Switzerland, Jan. 1, 1850, came to the United States in the
70s on a boat that did not cross the Atlantic in six days. He
settled in Rochester and engaged in the insurance business until his retirement
four years ago.
SHELLAC IN FLOOR REGISTER MAKES FIRE, CHILDREN FIND. Children at the home
of Joseph WAGNER at 1298 North Street discovered a can of shellac late yesterday
afternoon and decided that the best thing they could do with the contents was to
pour it down a furnace floor register. The result was that fire started in
the register flue a few moments later and within a half-hour the entire living
room, where the children entered into their experiment, had been swept by
flames. Battalion Chief Thomas H. COATES whose companies responded to a
box alarm, estimated the damage at $700.
ONLY AN ARGUMENT, SAYS RAZOR VICTIM. GIRL SENDS ONE TO CELL, ANOTHER TO
HOSPITAL. It was an argument over a woman, thats all. That
was the explanation Robert TAYLOR, 42, of 86 Industrial Street, gave when found
in Joseph Avenue near Nassau Street, yesterday, with a razor cut on the head.
Police of the Franklin Street Station, who found TAYLOR, called an ambulance and
TAYLOR was sent to the Genesee Hospital. There he had several stitches
taken in his head. He told police that his assailant was William ROGERS,
27, of 54 Waverly Place, and that the argument was over a girl they had taken to
a dance. ROGERS was found later in the day by police and locked up on a
charge of assault, second degree.

Mrs. Ralph HUNLEY of Penfield Road, and Mr. Jesse C. GRAY, Jr., son of Mr. and

POLICE ARREST VISITOR AFTER MAN IS CARVED. HOST AT PARTY TRIED TO SHOW
CALLER WAY OUT, SAYS REPORT. A New Years Eve celebration and card party
at the home of Otis CRAWFORD at 26 ½ Prospect Street ended disastrously
yesterday when the host tried to escort a guest to the door. As a
result CRAWFORD, the host, is at the General Hospital, with a deep razor slash
in the back, although his condition is reported as not serious. Police are
holding three of the guests, two of them termed house guests, as material
witnesses. They are Lucille REESE and James CLARK, of the Prospect Street
address, and Joseph WILLIAMS of 256 Troup Street. According to police,
William REESE of 8 Prospect Street called for his wife, Lucille, from whom he
has been estranged. Lucille did not want to go home, and when REESE became
quarrelsome, CRAWFORD, the host, said he had to leave. As CRAWFORD was
showing REESE to the door, police allege that REESE drew a razor and carved the
host down the back. Then he disappeared. CRAWFORD was taken to the
hospital and there told detectives what happened. A short time later the
police and detectives went to the home of REESE, but received no answer to their
knock at the door. There was the sound of the opening of a rear window,
and a man leaped out, into the arms of Detective William FOUBISTER. It was
REESE, police said, who is now under arrest on a charge of assault, second
degree. This gives REESE the distinction of being the first person
arrested in Rochester in 1933.
HEART ATTACK FATAL TO WOMAN IN STREET. While walking with a friend at
Clinton Avenue South and Highland Parkway last night, Mary McCALL, 62, suffered
