H»: Three thefts southwest of Algona recently A burglary and two thefts all in the same general area southwest of Algona over the weekend are being investigated by Sheriff Ralph Lind- •horst's office today. The burglary occurred at the. Berl Priebe farm southwest of Algona sometime Saturday night. The Priebes were gone for several hours during the evening and it is thought that the thieves broke in during that span of time and took three guns from a wall rack in the hallway after forcing open 3 door in the locked home. Priebe said a 30.06 deer rifle, a .22 single Action rifle and a .410 oer-and-under Advance rsday paper , , Two thefts from firm tip- tors in ifche same are* were ve Hig tractor, which was parked near a corn crib on land he -farms two miles west and 5% miles south of Algona, a short distance south of the Priebe home. And Bob Busoher reported to the sheriff's office Monday afternoon that about $30 to $35 worth of tools were taken from a box on a tractor located 2Vz miles south of Hobarton some time Saturday night or early Sunday. 16-ytar-old girl falls from oar Karen Peterson, 16 year old daughter of the James R. Petersons, Algona, suffered severe gravel burns and bruises to her right shoulder, arm, leg and back when she fell out of the car in which she was riding Tuesday evening.

Tht couple farmed 1% miles-east and 1'/4 miles south of the accident scene. She was returning to the farm about 2:40 p.m. with her baby after visiting a doctor at Emmetsburg. The infant, Sara, sustained a concussion and severe scalp lacerations and is in serious condition at the Palo Alto County hospital at Emmetsburg. The condition of 6-week- old Sara was described as "improving but still very serious" by her doctor at the Emmetsburg hospital. She had a severe concussion and head injury and is under 24-hour care. "She is better than when she came in to the hospital/' her doctor said Wednesday morning. Driver of the other car, Richard Lynn Russell, 26 of Whittemore, sustained outs and bruises but after treatment at the Emmetsburg hospital, was released later Monday. THE CRASH occurred on a •short, straight stretch of east- west blacktop leading from the road south out of Whittemore to the north-south highway 44 about a mile west of Whittemore. The crash occurred iboui one-quarter mile west of the highway. Mrs. MeUger was eastbound in the families' 1965 Chevrolet and Russell was traveling west in a 1966 Chevrolet owned by his father, WQQ&ow Russell. The younger Russell is i dragline operator for his father. north lane and coming straight at him. Tire tracks at the scene bear out his statements. Russell swerved to the left to avoid the crash and apparently" Mrs. Me tiger swerved to the right, back towards her lane, to avoid the crash also. They both apparently turned about the same time and crashed head-on in the center of the road. Mrs. Metzger had her baby by her side and it is theorized she might have been distracted by the infant momentarily. Neither car was traveling at a great rate of speed — both probably between 35 and 50 miles per hour. THE METZGER car had seat belts but Mrs. Metzger was not using them. She was thrown forward into the windshield and steering wheel, the latter which was twisted and bent badly. Neither she nor the baby were thrown out of the oar. Whittemore farmer Vern Muller was plowing in a field adjacent to the crash scene. He told Lindhorst he saw the Metzger car and then turned away a few moments to watch his plowing. When he turned back/the cars had collided. •He rushed to the scene and at about the same time a semi(truck driver for the Worrell Co. arrived at the scene. A Webster City salesman for Wilson & Co., Cordell Hanson, also arrived at the scene shortly after. He was seat 'back into town to summon the Whittemore rescue wagon. DEAN AND CHARLIE Elbert and Allen Ramaker arrived shortly after' on the rescue wagon. Mrs. Metzger was in critical condition and showed very little signs of life. The men decided to use Hanson's station wagon to take her to Emmetsburg rather than the slower rescue wagon. • The filberts and Ramaker accompanied Hanson to Ew- metsburg but she was dead on arrival. Botih pars were total losses with heavy front ,tr4 damage. The Algona emergency ambulance was also called but was sent back halfway there afte r Mrs. Metzger was put into the station wagon. wrvUet for Mrs. Duane tyeteger, 91, wttj t* Thursday morning, 10 s.m., the Apostolic
