Young Farmer Dies In Mishap SOMERSET, Pa. — Walter A. Koontz, 36-year-old farmer of Jenner Tcro-nship, was fatally injured Monday when he was crushed under a tractor. The mishap occurred on the farm of John M. McConaughy near Koontz's home. Dr. C. T. Saylor, Somerset County coroner, said death likely was instantaneous and caused by a fractured skull. The body was found an hour or two after the accident by two miners who were working at a nearby mine operation. Koontz, who was hauling a manure spreader at the time of the accident, is believed to have been pinned underneath the tractor when it suddenly turned end-over-end. A native of Somerset County, he was a son of Charles and Maude (Seal) Koontz. Besides his parents, he is survived by his widow and two children.
