(AP Photofax) * ' Kreinbring Death is 685th Fatality in State This Year . Albert Kreinbring, 75, 1414 Dunlap, killed in a two-car crash a half mile south of Austin about 2:30 p.m. Friday, was the first Christmas holiday traffic fatality in the state. The accident tied the 685 all - time traffic toll reached newspaper employes, who suffered in W57. a payless Christmas. Some 5,000 others stayed on the payrolls on a standby basis. In 1953 The previous longest strike in the city's newspaper history was in 1953, when photoengravers walked out for 11 days. The newspapers involved are the Times, Herald Tribune, Daily News, Mirror, Journal-American, Post, World-Telegram and Sun, Long Island Star Journal and Long Island Daily Press. Most newsstands in the city have shut down. Nearby Newark, N.J., and Westchester County, N.Y., papers have been publishing, but are not sending extra copies into New York. Newsday, a daily at Garden City, N.Y., continues to circulate in Long Island's Nassau and Suffolk counties. All sides seemed agreed that, since the balloting runs until late Sunday night, there was more likelihood of the first publishing being by Monday afternoon papers rather than by Monday morning papers. The collision occurred in front of the old Woodson School and the Austin man was killed when he drive his car from a side road into the path of a car driven by Leonard Griese, 16, 207 S. Main. Coroner George Stahl said Kreinbring, alone in the car, died of head injuries suffered when he was thrown from his car.

Halstenson and Everett Norman said the collision occurred at the middle Ashes From Pipe Set Clothes Afire DALLAS, Tex. (AP) — Charles W.

He was burned about the chest and neck. of the intersection and that Kreinbring's car continued on for 60 feet after he was thrown from it, hitting a rural mail box and landing upright in the ditch. The deputies said death apparently resulted from his being crushed between the two vehicles which slammed together broadside after the initial front -end impact. Griese, who was not injured, told deputies at the scene that he was heading south on South River street. He said a car had stopped for the yield-right-of-way from the impact point. There wa little front end damage to th Kreinbring car, but extensive dam age to the youth's vehicle.

HOLIDAY TOLL Traffic 373 Tires 73 Miscellaneous 54 Total BOS The National Safety Council said the toll was ahead of a rate which would produce the 620 deaths iV predicted for the four-day holiday period. But it added there was a 'glimmer of hope" the rising number of auto fatalities might 'all short of the all-time holiday high of 706 set in a similar Christmas period two years ago. As usual, speed and careless driving were blamed for most of the killer-accidents. Generally fair and warm weather egged on .some motorists to push down on.the accelerator, Compared With '56 The council said it based its lopes that no new record was in the making on midnight figures which showed this year's toll at 345 deaths. At a comparable period in 1956 the death count wa» 384. . ; The NSC said early Saturday morning figures indicated thert was a slow-down in the death rate. At the start of the holiday fatalities rose far above a record- breaking pace. Dec. 27 last year Minnesota deaths totaled 673, or 12 under the final count for the year. Krein-^ brfajg's death is the,only Minnesota traffic death so far reported for the Christmas holiday period. 5 Nuns Injured Five Franciscan sisters were injured Friday when their car left highway 14 near Mankato and rolled over twice. They were en- route from St. James to Rochester when their car struck an icy spot on the highway. Sister Philomene, most seriously hurt with head injuries: Sister Eugenie, and Sister Evsngeline, were treated at a Mankato hospital and taken to St. Mary's hospital in Rochester. Sister Celestine, the driver, and Sister Blenden* returned to St. James after treatment.
