      AUTO KILLS SLIP HILL MAN

      Sister Of Victim Dies Uninformed

      John Franklin Rhodes, 87, of Slip Hill, on the Sissonville Road, was fatally injured yesterday when struck by an automobile while walking along U. S. 21 near his home. He was pronounced dead on arrival at Staats Hospital.

      His sister, Mrs. Martha Alice (Lula) Haynes, 70, of Slip Hill, who had been critically ill in a Charleston Hospital for three months, died last night without learning of the death of her brother.

      She, like her brother, was native of Jackson County. She had lived in Kanawha County 40 years. She was a member of Greenlee Chapel Methodist Church.

      Dr. Goff P. Lilly, county coroner, said Rhodes suffered fractures of the skull, neck, spine and both legs.

      The car driver was identified by Trooper J. C. Boland as Edsel Blizzard, 19, of 1204 West Ave. He said the accident occurred when Blizzard swerved to avoid an automobile stopped in the highway in front of him. He was not charged.

      It was the 16th highway fatality of the year in Kanawha County.

      Rhodes was a retired farmer. He had lived the greater portion of his life in Kanawha County.

      Surviving Mrs. Haynes are four sons, Russell of Slip Hill, Leslie of Tyler Mountain, Benny of Kanawha Two-Mile and Allen of Chillicothe, 0.; five daughters, Mrs. Virgie Wandling of Slip Hill, Mrs.
