    • Harrold Woman Dies in Crash

      The recent bride of Virgil J Showers, son of Mr and Mrs W J Showers of Harrold, was killed Monday near Wichita Falls on the Iowa Park road when the motorcycle on which she and her husband were riding struck the rear of an automobile driven by an Iowa Park woman.

      Mrs Shows died a few minutes after being taken to a Wichita Falls hospital. Her skull was crushed when she was thrown off the vehicle. Mr Showers was seriously injured and remained in the hospital for treatment.

      Mrs Showers was the daughter of J J Lisle of Wichita Falls. She made her home in Graham prior to her marriage a week ago and funeral services probably will be held in that city. Other survivors include the mother and three sisters, Loise of Wichita Falls; Juanita of Sweetwater; and Mrs Margaret James of Wichita Falls.
