Stricken Monday Afternoon While Sitting On Porch — Responds to Treatment

While sitting on the porch of his home on Springfield Avenue late Monday afternoon, the Hon. Wade H. D. Warfield suffered an apoplectic stroke and at this writing in his critical condition at Springfield Hospital.

The former state senator and captain of local industry was unconscious when found. Medical aid and the ambulance were quickly summoned and he was removed to the hospital where everything possible was done to alleviate his condition.

He remained unconscious during the night, but gradually responded to treatment and so far revived as to be able to converse with members of the family and hospital staff.

News of Senator Warfield’s attack caused the deepest solitude and sympathy throughout the community. It is hoped that he may be able to overcome the attack. For some days he had been feeling unwell due to high blood pressure and had been ordered by physicians at the hospital to rest at home.
