WILLARD — Winona Burdge, 14, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.E. Burdge of New Haven, sustained a double fracture of the leg and other injuries at New Haven, when she was run down by a motor car after alighting from a school bus.
The accident occurred in front of the girl’s home on Route 61. The auto was operated by J.R. Mosey of Willard.

Scott in a Fink ambulance where she was treated and taken home.
A complaint of witnesses that Mosey failed to stop after the accident is declared without foundation by County Road Officer Watts.

Norwalk loses to Ashland 25-9
Norwalk High School’s basketball fortunes took a tumble last night as suddenly as they had come to life the night before when Coach Rosie Sarn’s veteran Ashland High Squad turned in a 25-9 score over the Pfeiffer coached aggregation at Sandusky Junior High gym in the sectional Class A basketball tournament.
Norwalk’s team failed to perform in the manner it did against Crestline and Ray Whittaker, who scored a total of 19 points against Crestline, was held to one field goal by the Ashland Club. Thus Norwalk was eliminated form any further competition in the tournament.
