        News of that accident reportedly may have contributed to the death later in the day of Ernest Clive Skinner, 13, Route 4, Newport, a lifelong sufferer of epileptic seizures and stepbrother* of Mrs. Collins' husband, Mike. According to Ernest's physician, word of the fatal traffic accident upset the youth deeply, a condition which the doctor said may have led to the fatal seizure which followed at the Skinner home. The boy was pronounced dead on arrival at Newport Community Hospital.

         The Skinner youth's services will be at 2 p.m. Saturday from the Sherman Chapel here, with the Rev. Frank Dizmang officiating. Burial will be in Newport Cemetery. Besides his stepbrother, he is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Skinner, and four sister, Lynda, Jean, Ramona and Ella, at the home.
