Service Set Tomorrow For Youth

A requiem mass for Kurt Manfred Schaffer, 15-year-old Fiintstone youth who was fatally injured in a highway accident Friday, will be celebrated tomorrow at. 9 a.m. at. St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Interment will be in Greenway Cemetery, Berkeley Springs, W.Va.

The youth was a passenger in a car operated by his father, Lt. Col. Robert W. Schaffer, (USAF-Ret.), which crashed into the back of a dump truck on U.S. Route 40, six miles east of Cumberland on Friday afternoon. The youth died early yesterday morning in Sacred Heart Hospital where he was taken for treatment of a severe head injury, deep lacerations of the scalp and a laceration of the right leg.

Born at Hoss, Germany, he was a son of Robert W. and Genevieve (Yonkers) Schaffer. He attended Flintstone High School and was a Boy Scout. Surviving, besides his parents is a sister, Adair Schaffer, a student at the College of St. Mary of the Springs at Columbus, Ohio.

The body is at the Hafer Funeral Home, Baltimore Avenue [Cumberland, Maryland] where friends will be received today from 2 to 4 and 7 to p.m. The rosary will be recited there today at 8 p.m. According to State Trooper L. V. Lewis and Tfc. George Wachter, who investigated, the Schaffer vehicle was westbound on Martin Mountain and descending the mountain on a slight curve when it crashed into the truck operated by William G Davis, 42, of Oldtown.

Mr. Schaffer also was admitted to Sacred Heart with head injuries. Attaches report him in "fair" condition. Mr. Davis was not injured.
