PITTSBURGH. C11 Two persons from Illinois Friday were cited by the Carnegie hero fund commission to receive awards for outstanding feats of bravery. They are among 48 persons in the country so named. To each of them is awarded a bronze medal. They are Eugene Robert Oat-man, a 12 year old schoolboy of Rockford, and Oliver Diehl, 60, a truckman of Morrison. Here's how the commission reported the Instances: Eugene Oatman, the schoolboy "saved Robert H. Craig, 15, a sdlioolboy companion, from-drowning at Omro, Wis., May 20, 1928. "While Craig and Eugene were paddling a boat in the old channel of the Fox river, the boat capsized, and both were thrown Into the water. Craig, who could not swim, bobbed up nnd down in the waters. Eugene, who had started swimming toward the bank, returned when he saw Craig's helplessness and dived toward him. A struggle followed ln which Eugene had much difficulty In freeing himself. He then grasped Craig's hair and towed him with great effort to wadablo water where they found aid. (Cralg lapsed Into unconsciousness and Eugene, exhausted, fainted on the bank. Both were revived, however." Diehl was reported to have prevented Henry B. Elmendorf, 78, from being killed by a train at Morrison, Dec. 9, 1929 by the commission. It said: "Elmendorf, who. was quite deaf, was walking on a crossing toward a track on which a passenger train was approaching at a speed of 55 miles an hour. A crossing watchman shouted to him to stop, hut Elmendorf continued to walk toward the track. "Diehl who was on the other side of the track, then shouted to him and when the locomotive was within 300 feet of Elmendorf he started to run across the track to him, reaching him four feet from the rail. Without stopping, he put his arms about Elmendorf and carried h'm six feet farther from the track. The locomotive was on the crossing when Diehl got In the clear."
