    One Killed, Three Hurt in Auto Accident

    Max Chopin, 30, Menasha, Succumbs to Injuries

    CRASH HEAD-ON

    Two Appleton People in Critical Condition At Hospital

    Menasha - One person is dead, two are in a critical condition and a fourth is being treated at Theda Clark hospital for injuries as a result of a head-on collision of two automobiles about 5:30 Tuesday afternoon near "devil's bend" on Highway 114 a mile north of Menasha.

    Dr. G. A. Steele, Winnebago county coroner, Paul Neubauer, sheriff, and L. C. Magnusen, district attorney, were expected in Menasha this afternoon to investigate the accident.

    DEAD

    Max Chopin, 30, 282 Tayco street, Menasha, skull fracture, internal injuries and broken bones.

    INJURED

    Charles Rector, 37, 230 N. Morrison street, Appleton, skull fracture, lacerations and broken bones. He is not expected to live.

    Mrs. Beatrice Reck, 31, 331 S. Memorial drive, Appleton, fractured jaw, broken legs and arms, scalp laceration. Condition is critical.

    Floyd Reck, 9, son of Mrs. Bernice Reck, head injury and undetermined body injuries. Condition reported good this morning.

    Chopin, who died at 10:35 this morning without regaining consciousness, was the driver of one machine and Rector of the other. Mrs. Reck and her son were occupants of the Rector car.

    County police believed the accident occurred when Chopin, going east, apparently moved toward the left lane to make a turn onto a side road while the Rector machine came around the curve. Both autos were demolished by the impact.

    Rushed To Hospital

    A bystander rushed the Reck boy to Theda Clark hospital while a truck, which stopped at the scene, carried Rector and Mrs. Reck to the hospital. Chopin was taken to the hospital by the Neenah ambulance.

    County and city police arrived shortly after the accident to keep a crowd of about 200 persons off the highway.

    Chopin moved to Menasha less than a year ago. Survivors are the widow; his father, Bernard Chopin, West DePere; two brothers, Clarence, West DePere; Gordon, Shirley; and a sister, Miss Elsie Chopin, West DePere. The body has been taken to the Laemmrich Funeral home.
