But there's more than inconvenience to think about when you run out of tas while airplane riding through the blue nothingness above with the solid earth a lo—o—ng distance below. For particulars about that slnky feeHnr in the pit of your stomach, that oh-my-goodness, all-gone sen- •ation, that -amnense, teeth chaptering and an tne other ^•elMg« that come up when you're vcared stiff, ask Ruth McKee, Elsie Halbrook, Jack Hilton and "Beans' Pe'arson. The four were riding. In an airplane at Arnolds Park when the Noble. Experience was suffered. A forced landing was made, fortunately in a suitable spot and when the tank was refilled the airplane ascended again. This time, however, one of the quartette remained on "good old terra firms."

To TERMED WORST COUNTY MOTOR CAR ACCIDENT r T ^ _ Mrs. Art Look, Herbert , 2 Daughters Killed 5 OTHERS HURT AT INTERSECTION In the flicker of an eyelash, Saturday evening about 6:30 o'clock, eath In its most terrible form truck at two LuVerne families, aklng the lives of four people and tadly injuring four more. In one of he worst automobile collisions in Cossuth county's history. The dead: Mrs. Arthur Look, 52, LuVerne. Herbert Will, 45, LuVerne. Lois Will, 19, LuVerne. Jeanette Will, 8, LuVerne. The injured: Howard Barton, LuVerne. Paul Will, Robert Will, Harvey Will and Shritey Will, LuVerne. The accident occurred three miles west and two miles north of Lu- Verne, at an intersection of coun- y roads. The John Bormann farm tome Is a short distance from the corner. There were no trees or other obstructions on the corner, ind the Intersection offered an un- mmpered view. One Possible Reason One possible reason for the accident has been advanced. It Is recalled that there was slight moisture In the air Saturday afternoon, and it was cool enough so that this moisture did, in many cases, have tendency to condense on the windshields of cars. If this happened to one or both of the LuVerne cars, it might have offset the fact that the corner offers an unobstructed view, in all directions. Piecing together details of the tragedy, Dr. R. A. Evans, county coroner, gave the following Inform- atlon. '..,= , The Look car, driven by Howard Barton, young man in the employ ot Art Look, with Mrs.. Look •» ». passenger, was going east. The' Will car, driven by Mr. Will, with his six children as passengers, going south. The collision civic action. .. Ballot*'will be distributed to each person present.

Banquet .Menu The menu for the banquet, as announced by the ladies serving the meal, will include ham loaf, scalloped potatoes, baked beans, jelly, pickles, coffee, rolls, butter, and fruit cake with whipped cream for dessert. Ask 2 Popcorn Stands to Move Notice has been served on the two popcorn stands located on the sidewalks, In the business section, to vacate, it was stated here this week. The two stands effected by the ilty order are those of Dore Freeh and George Shaddick. It was understood that the county had declared George could move his stand to the north side of the corner on which he is located at present. Speaking of moving things, a number of local merchants who have undergone Saturday afternoon berenades from the loudspeaking «yat«in located on the top of a building on State street, are also wondering why action is not taken. They have classified it by some very uncomplimentary terms, within our reporter's hearing, and we dare not repeat their remarks, but we sort of gathered they did not fancy the idea. 2 Cars Wrecked Near Bancroft Bancroft: Last Wednesday night an accident occurred northwest of town life** Ui« Heiiry Fox farm. Two car* collided Injuring the two occupants of one of the cars and wrecking both machine*. James and Helen Fox were in one car, and Alfred Jergenson was in the other.

His companion in the check passing, John Smith, 20, was given 10 year* at hard labor—and no fooling, he wasn't paroled. Barn, Corn Crib Burn At Bancroft Bancroft: A fire occurred at the Peter Mathia* form on Thursday morning. Mr. Mathia* wa* burning some corn stalk* when the wind suddenly changed, blowing the burning stalk* into the barn. The volunteer "ire department came at once but the blaze was out of control.

Barton was only slightly injur- Coroner's Jury A coroner's jury consisting of John Kohlhaas, Duane Dewel and Arthur Ward, was picked, Sunday and they examined the scene of the accident. However, final decision was being held up until today or tomorrow, until a complete study of the accident could be made. Sunday, all during the day, car* stopped at the death corner. Both of the wrecked machines were still lying at the tragic spot where they stopped after the collision. They looked as though they had been struck by a train. It wa* the general opinion that the two cars were the most badly mashed ever witnessed by most of the people in the throng that gathered all day lone on Sunday, at the corner. How anyone escaped death is still a mystery, especially in the Will machine. The top was off, the body splintered into little bit*, and even the back seat was torn loose from the frame. Funeral Service* Funeral services for the Willa have been arranged for this afternoon (Tuesday) at 2 p. m. at the uerman Lutheran church Lu- Verne, with Rev. Wittenberg in charge. It will be a triple funeral Mrs. Look's funeral rite* will bo held Wednesday afternoon at the some church. Her father waa a former pastor of the church.
