In her attempt to close it, Betty sitting next to the door, was pulled part way out of the car; Nancy grabbed Betty's arm in ah effort to prevent her- falling out of the car, and Nancy says that in her excitement she must have jerked the steering "wheel; causing the car to go into the ditch on the left. It took the girls some time to extricate themselves as they were entangled in a number of card tables. Betty, however, finally managed to roll down the one unbroken window and crawled out, helping Nancy out. The girls then walked a half mile to the Pearson farm and notified their families. 80th Birthday A pioneer resident, Mrs Magnus Peterson, observed her 80th birthday May 8 by entertaining eight friends at a coffee party at her home.
