Jury Finds For Defendant In Damage Action A district court jury returned a verdict for the defendant, the Kossuth County Fair Association, in a damage suit brought by Berl Priebe, Algona, on behalf of his daughter, Paula, here Friday. The jury, asked ^by Judge G. W. . Stillman to answ'er two questions in giving the verdict, deliberated for 6% hours. The trial began the preceding Monday. The case was a result of injuries suffered by Miss Priebe during the Kossuth County Fair Aug. 15, 1950. Miss Priebe was showing a 4-H calf at the'fair and a group of young boys allegedly ran near the calf, it reared, knocked her down and fractured her leg. The petition asked $7,946 for doctor, ambulance and hospital costs and personal damages. The jury was asked by Judge Stillman to decide if there was evidence that the action of the unknown boy in running into the calf was the sole, proximate cause of the accident and injury sustained by the plaintiff. The jury was also asked to decide if the area surrounding the judging ring was a safe place. The jury answered yes to both questions in giving the final verdict. The case was tried earlier in j district court here and a directed I verdict given for 'the defendant.
