Youths Asphyxiated. Joseph Youso, 15, and Roy O'Donnell, 15, Victims of Fumes from Gas Floor Furnace

Gas fumes from a floor furnace has been listed as the apparent cause of death of two eighth grade students of Havre Junior High School, Joseph Arthur Youso, 15, and Roy Arthur O'Donnell, 15.

The boys, neither of whom were at school Thursday, died at the Youso home, 174 Farley Ave., North Side, where a school mate found them when he called to go to school with them this morning about 8:30 o'clock. The Youso boy was found on the floor, with young O'Donnell in bed.

It is presumed that during the night a warm wind came up and the resulting pressure on the vent prevented the fumes from being carried away. An inspection by gas company men disclosed a vent manifold on one side was loose.

Roy Arthur O'Donnell was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Edward O'Donnell, 161 Farley Avenue. Besides his parents, O'Donnell is survived by sisters, Donnna and Darlene, Havre, and brothers, Edward and Ray, Havre; Patrick, Jackson, Mich., and Emil, Ranier, Alberta. His grandfather, Frank Bunton, also survives.
