On the eve of his graduation from Indiana Medical college, when his classmates had just finished their final examinations, Clifford O. Burroughs died last night about 6:30 o’clock at the Deaconess Hospital. Several weeks ago Mr. Burroughs was taken to the hospital in a serious condition having been in the grasp of the fever for several days. A hard battle was made for his life and every possible attention was given him. Dr. AC Kimberlin, one of the faculty of Indiana Medical College gave him his personal attention but the disease had gone too far and the young man could not withstand its ravages. Mr. Burroughs was 22 years old and had won distinction his work as a senior in the medical college. His class finished the final examinations  yesterday and the commencement exercises will be held Friday. The seniors will meet this afternoon in the college building to make arrangements to pay fitting tribute to their classmate. There are 84 seniors in the class.
