They also point out that Insurance claim adjustments call for official reports and that when none have been made insurance adjustment and payment may be with held. According to a news report from Wesley, Mrs. Newhall was riding in a car driven by her son-in-law, Rev. Franklin Shaw, Methodist minister from Ruthven, and owned by a Mrs. Smith, also of Ruthven. Mrs. Smith, who was also riding in the car, suffered minor injuries. The three, together with Mr. Shaw, were on their way to Mason City to attend a church meeting, when the accident happened. How, still remains something of a mystery, but reports were that fog and slippery pavement caused the car to leave the road.

The body was shipped to Wisconsin for burial. 3 Oat*]* Kille 100 SINGERS TO OFFER "MESSIAH" THIS SUNDAY H. R. Rasmussen to Direct Production in High School Auditorium at 3:30 p. m.
