ANN BIRTHS WAS TO HAVE WATCHED SAME OPERATION . . . Loses eye in crash near Marshalltown Bancroft — A Mason City optometrist, Dr. B. J. Silby, who has practiced one day a week at Bancroft since last May, lost an eye in a car accident last Wednesday near Marshalltown and the eye surgery was performed by a Marshalltown specialist. Ironically, Dr. Silby was enroute to Marshalltown to watch a similar operation on another patient. The accident occurred on highway 14 north of Conrad. - A sports car crowded Dr. Silby's car off the road and into a ditch. He was thrown into the windshield and a passing trucker picked him up on the roadway, where he was in a dazed condition. He was taken to the Marshalltown hospital for treak ment of a possible skull fracture, removal of the eye which had been pierced by shattered glass, and for cuts about the head and face. Dr. Silby was enroute to Marshalltown at the invitation of Dr. Otis Wolfe of the Wolfe Eye Clinic to witness surgery for the removal of an eyeball and Dr. Wolfe performed the same surgery on Dr. Silby. The sports car did not stop at the accident. The Silby machine was a total loss. Dr. Silby opened an office at Bancroft on May 13, 1965 and had come here every Thursday since that time.
