Combined Rites Planned For 3 Wreck Victims At Jewett Auditorium

            Caldwell – Combined memorial services for three Caldwell teen-agers, fatally injured Wednesday night when their pickup truck plunged down a hillside after missing a curve, will be conducted at Jewett Chapel-Auditorium on the College of Idaho campus at 2 p.m. Saturday.

            The Rev. Dr. Douglas D. Tiffany, college chaplain, is coordinating the services. The Rev. Robert A. Reed of Boone Memorial Presbyterian Church will speak for Charles Howard Winder, the Rev. Charles M. Hill of Treasure Valley Christian Church will represent James Walter Love and Rev. Dr. Harold N. Nye of the First Methodist Church will speak for George Truman McGinty. Dr. Richard D. Skyrm, head of the C of I music department, will be organist.

            Interment at Hillcrest will be directed by the Peckham-Dakan-Davis Chapel.

            Two Killed Instantly

            McGinty and Winder were killed instantly and Love died about three hours later in surgery at Samaritan Community Hospital in Nampa.

            Canyon County sheriff’s officers reported that the truck owned by McGinty failed to make the sharp right turn at the dead end of Cherry Lane Road and dived off the steep hill, vaulting Indian Creek slough and apparently striking the bank of the Middleton Road, causing the vehicle to tip over on its top on the road.

            Sheriff’s officers were notified of the accident at 10:05 p.m. by residents on Middleton Road, about one-half mile north of U.S. Highway 30 at Midway School.
