Mother Swoons Beside Casket Of Slain Son
College Instructor Who Admits Shooting Shows Signs of Weakening.
Mrs. D. M. Darling of Rochester, Minn., who came to St. Paul yesterday to attend the funeral of her son, Clarence Darling, who was shot and killed Wednesday night by Oscar M. Olson, instructor in the school of agriculture, fainted during the funeral services of her son. She was revived and went to the cemetery.
Olson, whose calmness has been a surprise to the authorities, began showing signs of weakening yesterday and last night a physician was summoned to the city lockup to attend him. Jail attendents said that he had become nervous and had asked for the attendance of a physician. Olson's wife was also under the care of a physician at the residence of her parents near Montivideo.
The funeral of Darling took place from the O'Halloran & Murphy undertaking rooms at 120 West Sixth street. Services were conducted by Rev. Frank Doran, an old friend of the Darling family.
