Kathy Pribbernow, five-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Pribbernow, route 1, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), is confined to St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield after an accident at her home which destroyed the sight on an eye.

Kathy, who was playing with her four brothers and sisters in the hay barn at their home, got in the way of the tongs of a pitch fork, with which the children were playing. She was taken to the hospital and it was found that the sight of the eye had been lost, but barring infection, the eye may not have to be removed.
