Buried Sunday

     NYSSA (Special) - Funeral services for Mrs. Bertha Camp, 67, will known Nyssa resident, who was instantly killed Thursday evening about 5:30 o'clock on the Union Pacific crossing near Nyssa, will be held Sunday afternoon at 2;30 at the Seventh Day Adventist church in Parma.  Interment will be in the Parma cemetery.
    Mrs. Camp who made her home with her sister, Mrs. F. L. Brown on Bridge island near Nyssa, was returning home after spending the afternoon in Nyssa where she was employed taking orders for stockings and women's wearing apparel.
    In order to reach her home Mrs. Camp had to cross a trestle on the Union Pacific track, leading from Nyssa to the island.  The Portland Rose due at that time, came across the trestle, leaving her with no means of escape.  The body thrown a distance from the tracks was badly mangled.
