Clipped From The Malvern Leader
Teen 4-H'ers on Colorado Trip Thirty-one of the 32 Mills county teen 4-H club members returned from their Colorado exchange outing early Monday, arriving on the Burlington Zephyr about 8:30 a. m. All, including their adult sponsors, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Christensen, Mrs. Richard Bass and LaVerne Obrecht, were enthusiastic about their week. A car accident was about the only thing that marred the trip. The host of one of the boys was driving home Friday night with Donald Angus, Dwaine Swett and Bob Johnson in the car when his brakes locked on a gravel road, throwing the car into the ditch. In the crash Dwaine sustained some cracked ribs and a punctured lung. Bob suffered a concussion but was released from the hospital in time to return with the group. Dwaine stayed in the hospital, his mother, Mrs. Harold Swett, went to Denver to be with him. While latest reports showed that he is recovering satisfactorily, he was kept in the hospital until Tuesday. They will leave Denver by train this (Thursday) evening and arrive in Red Oak Friday morning. The Coloradians who served as hosts for the club at once made up a purse to assist in the additional costs involved in the accident. Otherwise the Mills cotintians, who were guests of members of the Adams county, Colo., teen 4-H club and their parents, enjoyed a day in the mountains, a day in Denver and seeing various industries and farming operations of that area.
