Hallowe'en Party Blaze Kills Child Jack-o-lantern's Candle Ignites Clothing -- Her dress ignited by a candle from a Hallowe'en party pumpkin jack-o-lantern, Marianne Potts, 8, died at St. Edward's Hospital, New Albany, at 8 a.m. today, twelve hours after she suffered burns that almost covered her body. The child, a second grade student at the Corydon Pk. School, just west of the New Albany city limits, was at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Hisey, neighbors of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Potts, when the accident occurred. Before any of her companions, who numbered more than a dozen, could aid her she rushed screaming from the basement playroom out into the yard and onto State Rd. 62. A passing motorist and neighbor, Ed Welton, 52, stopped his car and tore the flaming clothing from the child, suffering burns which he described as "minor" about both hands. Welton then drove the child to the hospital. 31 Oct 1941 (or 1943?)
