Groh, a business and medical and surgeon asociate at the Lebanon Sanatorium rushed post haste to Reading, and was followed a short time later by Dr. Pan; D. Reich, of Jonestown. Both arrived after their friend had passed away. Hospital attendants' were informed, in their telephone conversations here, that Dr. 1..W. Lape, the third physician called for, was already in Reading, with Mrs. Lape, on a contemplated call upon Mrs. Marshall.: They had stopped, however, at th"e home of a relative of Mrs. Lape, and as this address was located quite near the hospital, they were notified, and rushed at once to the institution. Dr. Lape reached the place just after his friend had died, and Mrs. Lape reached Mrs. Marshall's bedside before she was advised of her husband's death. Although the hospital physicians ascribed Dr. Marshall's death to a probable heart attack following acute indigestion, an autopsy was decided upon. It was to take place this morning, and Dr. John L. Cfroh and Dr. John G. Mengel left this morning at an early hour to witness it. Relatives of the deceased surgeon also went to Reading, later this morning, to look after Mrs. Marshall's comfort and welfare, and to make arrangements for bringing the body back to Lebanon. Dr. Marshall suffered for upward of five years from an asthmatic condition, which lor a long time past was so serious that he cduld not obtain sleep in a reclining position in bed. It was because of this that an autopsy was decided upon, to ascertain the actual cause of death, Dr. Marshal! was born and reared at Annville, the son of Dr. E. B. Marshall, who died last January a year ago, after a lifetime of service to that community and the county at large in his profession. The son, after attending the public schools of the town, graduated from Lebanon Valley College in Annville, in 1911.
