 Charles P. Neth of Middleton
   Loses Life as Automobile
         Overturns Saturday

MIDDLETON  (Special) - Charles P. Neth, 33-year-old Middleton man, was killed in an automobile accident near Glenns Ferry Saturday.  His body was found near his overturned automobile about 7 o'clock Saturday evening by officers of the Elmore county after the accident had been reported by passersby.
     Cause of the accident is unknown.  Gravel along the highway where the overturned automobile was found was said to be loose and it is thought possible that the car may have become uncontrollable in the loose gravel.  Just where Mr. Neth was going is not known.  He left the home of his mother, Mrs. Mary Neth, at Middleton Saturday noon saying he would be gone for a couple of days.  He apparently was alone at the time of the accident.
     Funeral services for the accident victim will be held at the Baptist church in Middleton Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock with the Rev. M. J. McPike in charge.  Interment will be in the Middleton cemetery.  The body will lie in state Tuesday from 10 until 1:30 o'clock at the home of Mr. Neth's mother in Middleton.
     Mr. Neth was born in Middleton April 9, 1899.  He attended Middleton public schools and later the College of Idaho.  When he was 19 years of age he obtained a pharmacists' diploma in Nevada and later a similar degree in Idaho.  He was employed at a Wilder drug store for two years and at a Middleton drug store for three years.  He later was part owner of a garage at Jerome and for the past few years has been an automobile salesman throughout southwestern Idaho.  At the time of his death he was employed by the Lindsey Motor company of Nampa and had been making his home with his mother in Middleton.
     He is survived by two children, Bobby and Betty, of Portland; his mother; one sister, Mrs. Lena Ashmun of Watersville, Wash;, a brother, H. E. Neth of Redmond, Wash.; an aunt, Mrs. Anna Alchenberger of Middleton, and four nieces.  A brother, Arthur Neth, died nine years ago, while his father, Peter Neth, died 11 years ago.  His wife has divorced and re-married.
