AUTO CRANK SMASHES
JEFFERSON, Ia. Oct. 1 – Mr. A. S. Tanner of the Jefferson Cement Tile Factory, was very seriously injured by a “kick-back” of the crank of his big motor truck. The crank struck him across the right side of his face, breaking the cheek bone, nose and jaw, and seriously lacerating the face. Dr. Speers of Churdan was summoned, and took more than thirty stitches to close the wounds. Later in the day Mr. Tanner was brought home, where he was given further attention by Dr. Young, who, on account of the seriousness of the injures, thought best to remove the patient to a hospital. He was taken to the Methodist Hospital in Des Moines.
