Mrs. Austin Goodson Killed and Husband Seriously Injured in Wreck

     Mrs. Austin Goodson of Parma was killed in an automobile accident two miles east of Parma Tuesday evening at 11 o'clock, her husband suffered a double fracture to his jaw and severe cuts and bruises.  Miss Opal Shippey sustained a severe laceration to her thigh and minor cuts and bruises.  Herbert Johns, also of Parma and driver of the ill-fated car, escaped uninjured.
     The four persons had attended a movie in Caldwell, had returned to Parma for some hamburger and catsup, and were returning to the Fitts farm five miles east of Parma to prepare a lunch when the accident occurred.
    All four persons were riding in a Ford roadster.  Johns lost control of the car and it traveled more than 50 feet on the left side of the highway before it met a crossroad and ditch.  To right the car, Johns turned the steering wheel sharply to the right.  The car swung to the right side of the road, completely upsetting.  The accident occurred just opposite the Pete Vandermore farm.
     Mrs. Goodson's body was taken to the Peckham funeral chapel at Parma.  Mr. Goodson was brought to the Caldwell sanitarium and Miss Shippey was taken to her home in Parma.
     Coroner William Talley and Attorney Frank E. Meek visited the scene of the accident Wednesday morning.  No inquest will he held, it was announced following the investigation.
