A Burt man, Bernie Aaron Taylor, 62, who helped unscramble a 6-car pile-up on the ice covered bridge at the north edge of Algona on highway 169 Tuesday evening, succumbed to a heart attack at the scene, apparently brought on by overexertion. Mr. Taylor was driver of one of the vehicles involved. Funeral arrangements for him were pending at McCullough Funeral Chapel here when the UDM went to press Wednesday. He had been out of his car following the slippery mishap, helping investigators and others at the scene as they pushed cars and otherwise tried to clear the bridge for traffic, and after the wreckage was all removed, except for his auto, which sustained only $40 damage, Pete Jorgenson, local policeman who lives near the scene, opened the door of the vehicle and was going to drive it away when he found Mr. Taylor dead behind the steering wheel. Cars driven by Ardis Jones, 45, Fenton, Mr. Taylor, Eppo Bulten, 39, Algona policeman called to the scene to investigate, Roger Menneke, 17, Algona, Frank Molacek, 42, Algona, and a pickup driven by Tom Buscher, 30, Algona, were Involved. The Jones vehicle slid on the ice and struck the bridge and Mr. Taylor stopped behind it. Then Bulten was called, went to the scene and slid into the Jones car. The Menneke auto then struck the Taylor vehicle and the police car In the rear. Buscher, headed south, stopped to give aid, and his pickup was struck by the Molacek auto, which was headed north. Damage to the vehicles went like this: Jones, $600, Taylor, $40, police car, $500, Menneke, $500, Buscher, $250, and Molacek, $600. Bulten and Patrolman Charles Bird Investigated the crash, which began at 9:23 p. m. Bird also Investigated a crash on the bridge south of town on highway 169 when an auto driven by Richard D. Smith, Algona, struck a car driven by Janet Zittrltsch, 17, Algona, as It began a left turn at the south end of the bridge. Damage to the vehicles was estimated at $400. A car driven by Roland Bode, Algona, rolled off a road in Plum Creek township and landed in a ditch, also Tuesday evening, but Mr. Bode escaped injury. There was no estimate of damage to the vehicle. GRID GUESSERS CONTEST By Old Man Mose A young man from Ringsted, Douglas J. Hansen, bagged 19 correct picks out of 22 in last Saturday's Grid Guesser contest, and took first place. His high game total was 57, which didn't make much difference, because he was the ONLY 19-game guesser for the week. However, second and third place ended in a tie. Prances Moe and Mrs. Charles Hoffmann, both of Algona, had 18 right and a high game total of 63, which was unusual because the high game was actually 63 (Iowa-Mich. State). They will receive checks splitting the second-third place money between them. And there were other 18-game pickers, but a shade off the high point total. A close fourth was Marlyn Sachs, Des Moines, with a high game guess of 62, and Mrs. John Hanselman of Algona made the same 18 game — 63 point choice. Other 18-game pickers were Eugene Dahlhauser, West Bend; Jane Fraser, Algona; Arthur Klein, Sexton; Ruth Baumann, Lakota; and Dave Everds and Judy Everds. -. u Two other entries share Mourner's Bench honors for the week, Dianne Refeer and Bob Slobe, both of Algona. Dianne was five above and Bob five under the high game total. This week's contest games were in the Tuesday paper, same rules. By the way, don't forget to put stamps on your envelopes ! 25 Football Awards Given At Garrigan Coach Beanie Cooper awarded football letters to 10 seniors, five juniors and two sophomores this week at Garrigan High School.
