Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary, Henry & family where all here for dinner.  Philip & Bill where here for lunch.  In the evening they came back & we went down to the Brick House,  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary went there too.  Bill Herzog furnished musci, [sic] they had a pretty fair crowd.  They charged the gents 25¢ ladies free.  The Red Bud Dramitic [sic] Club came to Hecker to the new school hall & gave a play to-night.  There was a terrible accident in Hecker, this evening, there was a car came from the west & didn’t make no stop, & Eugene Bruns was going by & then smashed together, nobody was hurt but the cars where both damaged.  The stranger car was a man from Belleville & one from Chester, they where intoxicated.  The Sheriff was called & he arrested them took them to Waterloo to jail & the way they said they would have to pay $100 fined & 10 day in jail.  I don’t know who is right, we heard now again that the boy’s where uncosinence [unconscious].
