Cycle Accident
   Is Death Cause


     Harley J. Williams 24, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Williams of Deer Flat died at a Nampa Hospital Wednesday afternoon of an infection resulting from injuries received in a motor-cycle accident Saturday evening.
     Williams was riding his motor-cycle along the Karcher road returning to his home Saturday evening about 8 o'clock when he collided head on with a Ford touring car driven by Orville Chapman which entered the highway from a side road.  Williams received a badly fractured arm and other painful injuries.  The automobile was overturned but none of the occupants were seriously injured.  Chapman received minor bruises.
     Williams was a member of the Deer Flat Free Methodist church and a prominent worker in the Young People's Missionary society, holding the position of Idaho district president.  He is survived by his parents and other relatives.
     Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Deer Flat Methodist church.  The Rev. Darling will officiate.  Interment will be in the Canyon Hill cemetery.
