      Overcome By Heart Attack
      On Way To Home Of
      S. H. Klinefelter Who
      Suffered Similar Ill-
      ness - Latter Dies

      Dr. H. S. Crouse, age about 62
      years, prominent Littlestown phy-
      sician, was reported inproving this
      afternoon at the Annie M. Warner
      hospital, Gettysburg, where he was
      taken late yesterday afternoon after
      being stricken with a heart attack
      while attempting to reach the home
      of Samuel H. Klinefelter, Mt. Joy
      township farmer, who died the vic-
      tim of a similar attack.
      Dr. Crouse was found in a bewild-
      ered condition by Loy Klinefelter,
      Littlestown shoe factory worker,
      who was rushing home after being
      notified that his father had been
      stricken. He was taken to the hos-
      pital in the Adams county ambu-
      lance at about 3 o'clock, yesterday
      afternoon.
      Samuel Klinefelter, who was aged
      65 years, appeared in his usual
      health early yesterday morning and
      was preparing to go to Two Taverns
      for chop-feed when he was stricken.
      Death occurred at about 10 o'clock.
      Dr. Crouse was summoned when
      Mr. Klinefelter was taken ill and
      began driving to the Klinefelter
      home, about one and one-half miles
      southwest of Yoost's store, midway
      between Littlestown and Gettysburg.
      Doctor's Car Sticks In Drift
      The physician's car stuck in a
      snow drift shortly after the doctor
      had turned in the road which leads
      to the Klinefelter home. Unable to
      free the car, Dr. Crouse elected to
      walk to the home. He had gone
      only about one hundred feet when
      he was stricken.
      Mr. Klinefelter's son, hurrying to
      his home from the Windsor Shoe
      Company plant in Littlestown,
      found the physician lying in the
      snow along the road. he placed
      Dr. Crouse in his car and took him
      to his home in Littlestown. Chief of
      Police Hs. S. Roberts, Littlestown,
      took Dr. H. E. Gettier to the Kline-
      felter home. Mr. Klinefelter was
      dead when the second physician arrived.
      Physician Taken To Hospital
      Dr. Bruce N. Wolf, chief surgeon
      at the Annie M. Warner hospital,
      and Dr. Roy W. Gifford, assistant
      surgeon, were called to the Crouse
      home yesterday afternoon. They
      decided that it was advisable that
      he be removed to the hospital.
      Mr. Klinefelter was a son of
      Aaron and Margaret (Schaeffer)
      Klinefelter. He is survived by his
