At home: Labor Shortage on the Farm Is Still Acute “The shortage of farm labor is still acute,” accoring to H. J. Youngberg, managers of the Eau Claire branch of the Wisconsin State Employment office. This statement was made in a recent discussion of the problem with county agents and other farmer representatives.

Youngberg pointed out, however, that a sizable number of high school boys are now avaiable for summer work on farms. These boys are 14 to 17 years of age, some with considerable farm experience, some with limited experience, but all are willing workers.

Farmers who still need summer help would do well to contact the Wisconsin State Employment Service at 110 1/2 E. Grand Avenue, Eau Claire. High School boys who would like farm work for the summer months are urged to register at the Employment office at once, Youngberg said.

Joseph Huls Dies from Injuries in Auto Accident Head Was Crushed When Car Turns Over. Six Others Escape with Minor Injuries.

Joseph Huls, aged 25, died at Victory Hospital early Wednesday morning of injuries received when his car turned over on Highway 29, one mile west of Boyd at about nine o’clock Tuesday evening. Six other occupants of the car were more or less seriously injured and were taken to the hospital but all are reported to be recovering and out of danger. They are Dorothy Huls, sister of Joseph, Helen Matecki, and Henry Thoreson, Dorothy, Marie, and Catherine Knar. Hul’s death resulted from a fractured skull.

The party was bound for Lake Wissota to attend a dancing party, in Hul’s car. The accident is believed to have resulted from an attempt to pass another car and the sudden application of the emergency brake when the driver, Huls, found it was impossible or inadvisable to pass due to the approach of a car from the opposite direction.

The car, a Chevrolet sedan, turned over on its top, all the glass was broken out and the car was otherwise badly damaged.

Huls had been employed as office man by the L. I. Roe Company for several years, was of regular habits, steady and industrious and his untimely death is mourned by a large circle of friends. He was a son of Maurice Huls, well known pioneer citizen and was graduated from the high school with the class of 1924. He is survived by his father, one brother, and two sisters.

The funeral is to be conducted from St. Ann’s church this (Friday) morning at nine o’clock.

(Huls is buried in Holy Family Catholic Cemetery with Find A Grave Memorial ID 173162862).

THE FAIR’S GREAT DAY Spectacular Combat Be- tween Locomotives Proved Sufficiently Exciting.

Collision Drew the Crowds.

Between 50,000 and 55,000 Persons on the Grounds—Ticket Takers Swamped State day, with a locomotive collision as a spectacular feature, was a record breaker in point of attendance at the State Fair, between 50,000 and 55,000 persons being present Wednesday. While neither engine attained advertised speed prior to the crash and neither was reduced to scrap, the collision was suf- ficiently exciting to satisfy everyone. It was all over in a moment and the locomotive was locked in a death embrace, partially enveloped in clouds of escaping steam. Their fronts stove 1 and tenders off the track…“The collision demonstrated one thing., and that is that we can get the people to the fair if we offer at least one novel attraction beyond giving a first-class agricultural show,” said President McKerrow last evening. “I believe now that there were fully 50,000 people here today, and I also believe that the crowd was largely the result of the ‘novelty’ of a railway collision. It has strongly suggested that something out of the ordinary must be arranged for to get the people from the state to come here in very great numbers. as such, this feature was an unqualified success.” Opinions among the people were divided as to the sensation, many thinking a reserve clause must have been put into the agreement somewhere, but this is declared by both sides to the agreement to be ridiculous, as the unforeseen and unexpected happened in the slipping of one machine by being too suddenly thrown wide open that reduced its speed.
