Seated on Porch, Man Killed When House Collapses

Meridian. April 6--(AP)--C. D. Fletcher, a Maryland geologist 31 years of age, is dead here a casualty of a house that fell on him.

Fletcher was seated on the porch of a vacant cottage at Riderwood, Ala., Saturday when all of a sudden the walls collapsed and buried the man in the debris.

He never regained consciousness, dying Easter Sunday in a Meridian hospital.

Fletcher's widow and two children survive him at Jackson, Miss., while his parents live in Easton, Md. The body will be sent to Maryland for burial.
