E. J. COLSON, A SALESMAN
KILLED IN CAR ACCIDENT
E. J. Colson, 33, 617 South Nine
teenth street, Omaha, motor truck
salesman for the past five years of
the International Harvester company,
was instantly killed Wednesday when
a car in which he was riding with H.
A. Schmode, garageman of Norfolk,
turned over in the ditch three ami
one-half miles weet of Clearwater.
Schmode was not seriously injured. ,
The story connected with the
tragedy seems to be that Colson and
Schmode had driven from Ainsworth
during the night; Schmode had driver
as far as O’Neill and Colson decided
to drive while Schmode went to sleep
in the rear seat of the large Cadallac.
It appears from the tracks in the
road three and one-half miles weat of
Clearwater the driver must have gone
to sleep for a second as the left front
wheel went down off the grade and
then the car seemed to have gone
back diagonally across the road and
turned over in the ditch on the right
side of the highway and was stand
ing on all four wheels. Mr. Schmode
does not remember of crawling out
of the wreckage; when he regained
consciousness he was a short distance
from the car and' at once released Mr.
Colson who was lying under the run
ning board. The car was burning at
Mr. Colson is quite well known in
O’Neill and his many O’Neill friends
are deeply grieved over the tragedy.
The* remains of Mr. Colson were ta
ken to Omaha Thursd ay where
funeral arrangements will be made.
