Placerville man pulls victim to safety

SHINGLE SPRINGS — Michael A. diVittorio, 19, of Placerville was pulled from a burning car Tuesday by a passing motorist who saw diVittorio’s car shoot down a steep embankment, CHP officers said.

Frank Vega of Placerville saw diVittorio’s car leave Highway 50 near Shingle Springs Road at about 3:30 p.m. and has been credited with pulling diVittorio from the burning car. DiVittorio had been driving east on Highway 50 at about 65 miles per hour when his Chevy sedan traveled off the right side of the road for unknown reasons, according to the CHP.

An ambulance took diVittorio to Marshall Hospital where he was treated for major internal injuries, a possible concussion, scrapes and bruises. He was listed in satisfactory condition at press time.

Rotarians To Meet In City

Placerville Rotary Club will be host July 22, 23 and 24 to a district assembly of Rotary clubs in Northern California in which thirty three clubs will be represented.

President Glenn Stoffer, of the host club, reports that a meeting will open with dinner at Hotel Raffels on July 22 and will bring together representatives of clubs from as far north as Alturas, as far west as Walnut Grove, and as far east as Ely, Nevada.

The message of District Governor Peckinpaugh is expected to prove of special interest since he was in attendance at this year’s meeting of Rotary International, at Quebec, Canada.

Impressive Dedication Ceremonies

At the dedication of the New Assembly Hall at Preston School of Industry at Ione, last Saturday, Placerville was well represented, and all who were so fortunate as to witness the impressive ceremonies cannot speak too highly of the institution and its management, and of the courtesy extended to them by C. H. Dunton, President of the Board of Trustees, Superintendent Randall and his charming wife, the officials and cadets.

After an exchange of greetings, an elegant luncheon was served in the spacious dinning hall, where eighty-five guests were seated at tastefully decorated tables, a corps of cadets attending the wants of the hungry visitors. Following this the dedication ceremonies took place in the new Assembly Hall, where an immense audience had gathered to hear the program.

The last hours of the day were spent in listening to a band concert on the lawn, and in inspecting the buildings after which a chicken supper was served. At about 8 p.m. the guests departed and arrived in Sacramento at 10:40, all more than delighted with the day’s outing. The building just completed is a large concrete structure, designed by H. A. Schultz, a San Francisco architect, and built by the boys of the school; but the guiding hand was that of Oliver Morton of this city, who instructed the class in the handling of cement and formation of concrete blocks. He with is wife, was on hand to greet Placerville friends, as well as Milton Watt who is in charge of the iron workers class, and busily employed.
