It was a trespass suit brought by Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Hum- mel Osceola Mills R. D., against Mrs. Gloria Yarger Reams, also of Osceola Mills R. D. The case arose out of a traf- fic accident in May of 1964. The Hummels were seeking compensation for injuries suf- fered by them and their son and for damges caused to their panel truck, owned by Mr Hummel's father, Lloyd Hum- mel of State College.

A pool of blood formed on the green carpet- ing. Horrified members of Parlia- ment quickly subdued the as- sailant. Verwoerd, 64, was pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital. The senior Cabinet minister, Theophilus Donges who be- came acting prime minister announced the leader's death to Parliament a little more than an hour later. Donges identified 'the assassin as a temporary messenger in Parliament. He said the as- sailant was under arrest but that his motives were not known. The South African Press As- sociation said it understood the assassin was of Greek descent. Appealing to the nation to re- main calm, Donges said the Cabinet would continue its nor- mal work and the police "would leave no stone unturned to get to the bottom of this das- tardly deed." He said the pub- lic should not speculate or "lose their heads." Verwoerd's death, in the most notorious political assassination since that of President John F. Kennedy in 1963, promises no change in South Africa's apar- theid policy. His Nationalist party will pick the new prime minister. The attack came suddenly before members knew what was happening. Galleries were fill- ins with spectators. The man was dressed in the black and green uniform of a Parliament messenger, and members took it for granted he Was on official duty. Members of Parliament grap- pled with him and pinned him to the floor. He was removed from the chamber. The attack, the second on Verwoerd since he became prime minister in 1958, came just two days before his 65th birthday.
