C. McMahon at Algona last week. Evidence was not furnished to irove that Funderburk was driving he car. The accident occurred at two o'clock Sunday morning, August 9, on road No. 9 two and half miles ast of Swea City. Mr. and Mr*. .*on DeMer and their two sons of Jackson, Minnesota, were going ast when their car waa struck by a car coming west In which Funderburk, Roy Bishop and Jos Cody had been riding. The DeMer baby was riding In he back seat with its mother, and the father and an older son were in the front seat The baby died of a rushed skull an hour later in Dr. Minkel's office in Swea City. The hree other members .of the Dekter family suffered lacerations, bruises and shock. The three young men were taken nto custody the following day. Bishop told that he left the other two at Ledyard, and accordingly was not with them at the time of the crash. Action was dismissed against Cody when he proved to .he satisfaction of the officers that he was not to blame. It Is said In face of the apparent case against him, Funderburk insisted stoutly to a few friends in private that he was not driving the :ar at the time. Instead of voicing its Innoncence publicly, however, chose to stand by till the case came to a hearing, when, judging rom the action of the county attorney he was able to prove he was not the guilty man. The skidding season Is here, so watch your step. When driving an automobile on slippery roads, no matter how good your brakes are, don't depend on them entirely. You should have your car under control at all times and adjust your driving to the prevailing conditions. Careful drivers seldom skid. As a pedestrian, don't depend too much on the ability of the driver to stop or slow down, especially at arterlals and regulated Intersections. Many a pedestrian has been seriously injured because he placed too much confidence In the ability of a driver to stop his car on a slippery road. Play safe and you will be safe.
