(UDM Flashfoto) Maree Bahnson, 66, Burt, Humboldt Accident Victim BURT - Mrs. Maree Alice Balinson, GG, wife of a Burt osteopath, Dr. Baline K. Balinson, was lulled in a one-car accident on highway 169, 5 1/2 miles north of Humboldt about 11:10 a.m. Wednesday. According to Humboldt County Deputy Sheriff Mervyn Johnson who investigated, Mrs. Bahnson, who was traveling south, attempted to pass a car driven by Dwight Burgus of Osceola and when her auto was even with the front window of his car the left rear tire apparently blew out, causing her to lose control of the car. It swerved to the left down a steep dredge embankment. After hitting the embankment, the car flew through the air 45 feet, coming to rest on all four wheels against the opposite bank of the ditch. Mrs. Bahnson was killed instantly. Mr. Burgus notified the sheriffs office. Deputy Johnson was assisted in investigating the accident by Patrolman TomCog- dall, Algona, Arlen Meir, Pocahontas, and Garrett Wheeland, Ft. Dodge. Services for Mrs. Balinson were held at 9:30 a.m. Monday at Burt Methodist church. Burial was at Richland Cemetery at Inwood. McCullough Funeral Chapel was in charge of arrangements. Mrs. Bahnson was born at Strafford, March 6, 1901. A 1924 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Cornell College at Mt. Vernon, Iowa, she taught economics in Iowa high schools for 14 years and was a Burt resident for 30 years. She married Dr. Bahne Bahnson at Webster City, August 22, 1926. Survivors include her husband, three sons, Lon Cummings of Anchorage, Alaska, Robert Cummings of Riverside, Calif., and Larry Cummings of Camp LeJeune, N.C.; a brother, Raymond Peterson of Los Angeles, Calif.; two sisters, Mrs. Aurilla Yegors of Ames and Mrs. Alletea Weber of Detroit, Mich.; and seven grandchildren. Pallbearers at the rites were Howard Batt, Bruce Cranston, Dale Lockwood, Lloyd Bellinger, George Manus and C.G. Venteicher. Ames Driver Cops Feature, Stock Races Del Stokey of Ames won the feature as area stock car fans were treated to another top-flight night of racing at Kossuth Speedway here Friday night. Time trials for the next session, this Friday night, begin at 8:30 p.m. Stokey's victory came after two local drivers, Jim Edgington and Gene Schattsclmeider, had taken turns leading the event (and also turns at last after they caused restarts). Edgington led most of the way through the first 10 laps, then lost control and his auto rolled gently on its side after hitting the north fence. His car was quickly readied and he got back in the race. Schattsclmeider spun out a couple of laps later. They finished fourth and fifth. Butch Householder, point leader so far, won the trophy dash after topping the 25-car field in the time trials with an :18.97 clocking. Results: First heat-Jim Wolf; Second heat - Jim Roupe Third heat - Schattschneider Trophy dash - Householder Semi-main-Joe Byrd Main - Stokey, Roupe, Householder Sizeable Bill According to reports, there was a man in Algona Tuesday who fertilized two trees and did some trimming for a local woman, then asked $280 from the woman for whom he did the work. The sheriffs office was notified and the bill was not paid. All persons living in the area were alerted by the sheriff Wednesday to be on the lookout for any such operators and let his office know if any should show up. A CLASSIFIED AD WILL GET FAST RESULTS Courtney Bat, Becker Arm Win For Bears A single by second baseman Don Courtney with two out in the top of the eighth inning plated the winning run as Garrigan's Golden Bears pulled out a come- from-behind 3-2 victory over Ft. Dodge High School there Friday. The win was the second for the Bears. The locals, now 2-2 for the season, hosted St. John's of Bancroft Monday night and will host St. Edmond of Ft. Dodge tonight at Garrigan field. Joe Becker went all the way on the hill for the locals, hurling an 8-hit win, walking only one and striking out four. Ft. Dodge counted single runs in the home half of the third and fourth innings, and with John Conkel pitching well apparently had the victory stitched. The Bears then scored one run each in the sixth, seventh and eighth to snare the verdict. The run that tied the count came as John Winkel reached on an error and went to third on a passed ball, scoring on a grounder hit by Becker. The winner came with two out. Mike Elbert's grounder was flubbed and he went to second. Courtney then slammed his single down the line to send Elbert home. Courtney, Dick Muller and Jack Muller each got a pair of blows for the Bears while Blankenhagen and Kopp each had two for the losers. Driver Charged Cars driven by Robert Tire- void, Dolliver, and VeraG. Smith, Lakota, collided a half-mile north of Lakota at 4;45 p. m. Saturday, resulting in an estimated $370 damage to the vehicles. The latter was charged with turning left at an intersection.
