Harvard Malmsten was injured
Monday in Salem when a motor­
cycle which he was riding col­
lided with a rail projecting from
a work car on the Oregon Elec­

unconscious, but shortly after re­
vived. While no direct word has
been received by his parents,
Mr. and Mrs. S. V. Malmsten, up
to yesterday noon, it is believed
that his condition is not serious,
as notification would otherwise
have come from a® aunt who
lives in Salem.
Harvard was called to Salem
