Frank Tracey Killed and
Elmer Hake Seriously
Injured in Wreck.
Death stalked the car of Marlon
Cunningham on Saturday night,
when In an automobile accident
near the Ed Clark place on the
highway just a mile and a quarter
below the city, Frank Tracy of
Heppner was killed.
The car, a Star touring, owned
and occupied by Cunningham as
driver, Tracy, Onez Parker and
Elmer Hake, who were on their
way to a dance at Lexington after
having attended the show at Hepp
ner, had Just passed another car
driven by Jack Witcraft, and evi
dently, from evidence produced be
fore the coroner's Jury, was moving
at a high rate of speed when the
curve In the highway was encoun
tered and the car left the road, run
ning along some little distance be
fore striking rocks that turned the
machine completely over and it was
badly wrecked, though the engine
was running and the lights burning
when it stopped.
Onez Parker and Elmer Hake
were riding in the back seat, and
Parker states that when he realized
the car was leaving the road, he
dropped down between the seats,
and this action no doubt saved him
from being hurt and he came out
with only slight bruises. Hake was
badly hurt, and has been confined
at the home of his father, Harve
Coxen, since. His head was badly
cut and he was bruised seriously
on parts of the body. Cunningham
was hurt on the arm sufficiently to
cause that member to be carried In
a sling, but no bones were broken.
Tracy was found to be uncon
scious with cuts on head and face,
and on being rushed to the hospital
at Heppner the examination by the
physician revealed fracture of the
skull and broken neck. He died a
few hours later, never having re
gained consciousness.
Coroner Case called a Jury on
Wednesday, and after deliberation
they brought in the following ver
dict: "We, the Jury called this 26th day
of December, 1928, before Coroner
M. L. Case, of Morrow county, to
inquire Into all the crlcumstances
attending the death of Frank Tra
cy, find that the said Frank Tracy
came to his death In an automobile
wreck, said automobile being then
and there operated and driven by
one, Marion Cunningham, on the
Oregon-Washington highway about
1 1-4 miles northwesterly from
Heppner, Oregon, said operator ap
parently then and there driving
said automobile In an imprudent
and careless manner." The Jury
was C. N. Jones, John Her, Adam
Blahm, S. H. Shanon, H. C. Case
and Hanson Hughes.
Tracy had no relatives residing
here, but on his body was found an
Identification card which said to no
tify G. A. Tracy, Brainard, Minne
sota, in case of accident. This was
done Immediately, and upon instruc
tion received from his relatives the
body was prepared by Undertaker
Case and will be shipped to Brain
ard by train this evening. He had
been living at Heppner for some
time and was engaged at the lunch
counter of Edgar Copenhaver at, the
Curran & Barr pastime. He was 30
years, 9 months and 12 days of age,
and was a young man well thought
of by all who knew him here.
Witcraft, and Lewis LcTrace,
who were on the scene immediately
after the accident, assisted In get
ting the injured men to town.
At their home on Willow creek
below Heppner Friday evening, Mr.
and Mrs. Arthur Parker entertain
ed a large number of their neigh
bors and friends at a 500 party, and
the occasion was very enjoyable.
During the evening delicate refresh
ments were served by the hostess.
Those reported present were Mr.
and Mrs. J. P. Hughes, Mrand Mrs.
Adam Blahm, Mrs. Hazel Shaw, Mr.
and Mrs. Ralph Jackson, Mr. and
Mrs. Walter Evans, Mr. and Mrs.
Earl Evans, Mr. and Mrs. Frank
E. Parker, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Val
entine. First honors for men went
to Mr. Hughes, and for the ladies
by Mrs. Valentine while Mrs. Shaw
and Mr. Blahm received the conso
lation prizes.
As the guests of Mr. and Mrs.
Mitchell Thorn, the local employes
of Pacific Power & Light company
enjoyed a line Christmas party at
the office building on Saturday
night. Following a general busi
ness meeting there was a Christ
mas tree, a treat of stocking-full
candy and nuts for each one pre
sent, and then a big chicken feed
Dancing followed for a time with
music coming over the radio, and
it was made an occasion long to
be remembered.
The business houses of Heppner
have been distributing some very
beautiful and attractive calendars
this week, reminding us all that
the year 1929 is right at hand. Some
of these are quite elaborate and
Illustrate to "nth" degree the excel
lence of the printer's art, as well
as Illustrating numerous historical
events, and are such remembrances
on the part of the business end of
the community as the people appreciate.
Party on Way to Entertainment
When Mishap Occurs; Auto
Nearly Demolished.
Jack Hynd, prominent stockman
of the county, and one of the mem
bers of the firm of Hynd Bros. Co.,
was the victim of an automobile
accident on Saturday evening, and
as a result he is now confined at
Heppner hospital in charge of Dr.
McMurdo and recovering from a
pair of broken legs, and some min
or injuries.
With Mrs. Hynd, Miss Vada Mon
tague and Messrs. Willie George
Wilson and Jim O'Neil, who are
members of the Hynd "household,
he was going to the basket social
and school entertainment at Cecil
hall. When about sixty rods up the
highway from the home place, Mr.
Hynd attempted to pass a car In
front of him, belonging to Elmer
Tyler, who also works on the Hynd
ranch, in which Taylor and Jackie
Hynd were riding. The sedan of
Mr. Hynd was speeded up for this
purpose, and he had no sooner pass
ed the smaller car than he realized
the the steering of the car was dif
ficult, and apparently the front
wheels had locked. This took him
into the ditch at the side of the
highway, then the car suddenly re
versed its course obliquely across
the road to the opposite side, in
the meantime somersaulting and
then landing right side up in the
concrete irrigation ditch, practic
ally a total wreck. All the doors
but one were taken off, the left front
door only remaining intact, the
glass all smashed, the top off and
the occupants of the machine scat
tered about. Mrs. Hynd landed
along side the car near the rear,
was bruised in several places about
the body, but received no cuts,
though her coat and dress were
badly cut and torn by the broken
glass and she was slightly dazed by
the force of the impact with the
ground. Miss Montague was near
with cuts to her left knee and leg
below the knee, but none very ser
ious, and she was also bruised some.
Mr. O'Neil received some cuts on
the head that required bandages,
and Mr. Wilson came through en
tirely unhurt, evidently being
caught In such manner by the top
of the car as to escape cuts and
Mr. Hynd, who was driving the
car, was not quite so fortunate as
the others, and when discovered he
was sitting In the back seat, having
received a break of one leg near
the ankle, and a fracture of the
bone In the other about the same
distance from the ankle Joint A
black eye resulted from a glass
cut Just below that member, and
there was some sore spots here and
there as a result of bumps he re
ceived, but otherwise he escaped
serious hurts.
Just exactly what went wrong
with the car is not known, but It is
surmised that the steering gear
was faulty as it had been giving
some trouble previously, and the
cut of the tire in the macadam
would indicate the locking of the
wheels. At any rate the car Is
seriously wrecked, and the miracle
is that not more of the party were
hurt, or that any escaped fatal in
juries. Mr. Hynd is reported to be
doing fine, and expects to be whole
again before long, and in the mean
time he will greatly appreciate calls
of friends while he is laid up In
the hospital.

George Mayhew, prominent citi
zen of Condon, and well known In
Heppner, was instantly killed on
Thursday evening last in a head-on
collision of two automobiles on the
John Day highway about four miles
north of Condon. Mr. Mayhew had
been a visitor in Heppner a couple
of days preceding the accident
From the Condon Globe-Times of
Friday, we have the following ac
count of the accident
George Mayhew was instantly
killed and Mrs. Mayhew is in the
local hospital with severe scalp
wounds, the result of a head-on col
lision four miles north of town on
the John Day highway at 5 o'clock
Thursday evening. It is believed
Mrs. Mayhew will recover.
H. Dean Young, sole occupant of
a Studebaker car with which the
coupe driven by Mayhew collided,
received only minor injuries. A
heavy fog is thought to be respon
sible for the accident. Mr. Young
is district manager for the White
Sewing Machine company with
headquarters at Pendleton.
Mr. and Mrs. Mayhew had start
ed for Seaside to spend the holidays
with the latter's mother and sister,
Mrs. Crownover and Mrs. Ed Haw
The accident was directly in front
of the A. C. Wells ranch house on
a straight road. Young says he
had just turned on his parking
lights and that Mayhew had not
done so as it was hardly dark.
Mr. Wells and other men on the
ranch were first to appear on the
scene. They found Mr. Mayhew
with his head and arm beneath the
running board of his car. his face
mutilated almost beyond recogni
tion. Mrs. Mayhew was on her feet
near by. The Mayhew car was
completely demolished.
The cars, it appeared, had collid
ed by the left front wheels. Trafflo
officer Pyle examined the wreck
Friday morning. "Mr. Young was
exonerated from all blame," says
Officer Pyle. Tracks show plainly
that the Mayhew car was on the
wrong side of the road and also he
did not have his lights turned on.
Mr. Mayhew was born in Eng
land about 44 years ago. He came
to America when a lad and was
raised by A. C. Ruby of Portland,
by whom he was. employed at the
time of his death as a loan broker.
He was a corporal in the 162nd
infantry, U. S. army during the war
and was discharged at San Fran
cisco, October 3, 1919. He had made
his home in the Condon community
for many years.

Taylor of Lane county, accompan
ied by Otis Boyd, a student of Was
co, wrecked his car at the railroad
crossing at the lower end of Main
street at 3:30 a. m., Thursday. The
car, a new coach, was badly wreck
ed and the body completely ruined.
The young men escaped with minor
cuts and bruises. A bottle of liquor
and a revolver were picked up at
tne scene of the wreck, and a bro
ken bottle was found in the car by
Marshall Frank3. The young men
denied ownership of the liquor in
Justice Robinson's court, but Tay
lor, who is a deputy sheriff in Lane
county under his father, claimed
the revolver. No charges were plac
ed against them. lone correspon
