TWO KILLED IN AUTO CRASH
Two Others Hospitalized
BOONES CREEK -- Two men were fatally injured, one was critically injured and a fourth man was less seriously hurt in a head-on collision at the Boones creek-Jonesboro roads intersection here Saturday afternoon.
Dead Were:
James V. Breeding, 37, RFD Jonesboro and his brother-in-law Elon DeVault, about 25, Route 10, Kingsport. Breeding died of chest and head injuries about half an hour after reaching Memorial Hospital, Johnson City. DeVault also suffered head and chest injuries and died about six hours after being admitted to the hospital.
----
See picture of smashed automobile on page 8-A
----
In critical condition late Saturday night was John W. Correll, about 42, 128 Boone St., Jonesboro, who suffered chest injuries and head lacerations.
Less seriously hurt was Gus Breeding, 34, Bloomingdale Rd., Kingsport, brother of James and driver of the car, according to investigating officers. He was admitted to Memorial Hospital for treatment of small head lacerations.
The Washington County Sheriff's Department at Johnson City said a manslaughter charge had been placed against Breeding.
The accident occurred about 5 p.m. at a dangerous intersection about one forth mile off Route 23. Correll, a worker in heating units and guttering was alone in his 1948 model car and apparently driving towards Jonesboro.
The 1950 model car in which two were to be fatally hurt evidently was traveling towards Gray Station.
The roads leading to the intersection are straight.
The right front of the Breeding car struck the left front of Correll's vehicle, knocking it about 20 feet from the point of impact, according to the first person on the scene after the accident, Clarence Mattingly, an auto repairman from Jonesboro.
The Breeding car had stopped after breaking through a panel fence to the left of the road, Mattingly said, and two men lay near it, one whose feet were in the car and his head on the ground. He did not see a third man near or in the car, he said.
Correll was lying in the road curled up, Mattingly stated.
As others arrived and stopped, Mattingly advised Mrs. B. D. Young, whose home is nearby, to call an ambulance and the Highway Patrol. He said he also advised against moving any of the victims until an ambulance came.
Saturday's fatal crash was investigated by Sheriff John R. Deakins, Deputies Ed Phillips, Milt Sluder, and Chief Deputy Bill Taylor and Highway patrol Cpl. Jim Long.
James Breeding was a native of Sullivan County and an Air Force veteran of World War II. He owned and operated Williams Machine Shop at Litz Manor. He leaves his widow, Mrs. Janie Breeding; two children, Carolyn and Jimmy; his mother, Mrs. J. K. Breeding, Route 2, Kingsport; three brothers in addition to Gus - Ernest, Sydney and Kemper, all of Route 2, Kingsport; three sisters, Mrs. I. E. Bevins, Bristol, Mrs. Mabel Peters, San Diego, Calif. and Mrs. Parker Lovelace, Route 1, Kingsport.

Miss Emma!

Leads in the Vote For the Week.

ONLY FOUR DAYS MORE.

BALLOTS ARE POURING IN BY THE HUNDRED EVERY DAY.

Vote For Your Favorite.

When it rains it pours. When the boys vote the ballots roll in. The week just closed has been one of the greatest in the history of the Contest. Ballots have been coming by the hundreds through the mails and by individuals and the nearer the end the faster they come in. The present outlook indicates an enormous vote between this and the close Tuesday night. Up to Wednesday night Miss Emma Davault takes the lead by a small vote, while Miss Bunnie Benson is an extremly close second, with Miss Minnie Bast in third place. Miss Murtle Wright receives a handsome vote and passes Miss Jennie Baker, while Miss Hattie McCuin is within a few votes of taking fifth place from Miss Baker. The vote has been materially increased along the line and some wonderful changes can be made before the polls close next Tuesday night.
The closing part of the contest is proving so great that we ask all parties voting to label their packages with the number of votes so the counting may be expedited. As Judges for counting the ballots, Messrs Louis Phillips, S P Stewart and J C Dickison have agreed to act. These gentlemen will, we think, give satisfaction as they are in no wise interested, and neither have cast a ballot. They will take the ballots in charge and announce the official vote as soon after the polls close as possible.
Voters and friends of the young ladies must positively remember that the polls close Tuesday night at 9 o'clock, by our office clock. We give the list of contestants in full and next week will give the official votes.

Emma Isabelle DeVault, daughter of Henry and Caroline DeVault was born in New Florence, Missouri, May 20, 1874. In 1901 with her parents she moved to Nebraska, locating at Bayard. On March 17, 1915 she was united in marriage to Charles H. Harpole, also a pioneer of Bayard, where he was engaged in the merchatile business. They were the parents on one son, George.

She was also active in the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society and the Woman'sClub.
When death came she was a member of the First Methodist Church in Scottsbluff, and as long as her health permitted, she was a faithful attendant at its services and also of the Woman's Societry of Christian Service. Mrs Harpole was a devoted homemaker, a loving wife and mother, a loyal friend and a dedicated Christian.
