Schuyler, Neb. (AP) - Two men were killed instantly and a third died en-route to a hospital in a head-on collision of two automobiles seven miles east of here on the Lincoln Highway shortly after 1 a.m. Friday.
The dead:
MYRL RHEA, 18.

All of the dead were riding in a small car which collided with an Interstate Transit Lines bus. Of four passengers on the Los Angeles bound bus, one suffered a sprained ankle, a woman was cut in the eye by glass, and the other two suffered minor injuries.
Bus passengers said the bus was proceeding westward and a truck was coming east when the driver of the light car swung out to pass the truck and hit the bus head-on.
The bodies were brought here for identification.
The car, in which the three youths were returning to Rogers from a movie here, was owned and driven by RHEA, married and the father of one child.
GARRIETS was the son of Louis Garriets, Rogers elevator manager, and HENRY was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Henry, prominent in this section.
MRS. OTIS BEAMAN of Ceresco, a bus passenger, suffered an eye cut in the impact, and MRS. CLARA P. HULL of Hanon, Ida., was cut on the cheek.
MISS RAMONA MAPOTHER, 17, of Los Angeles, received a sprained ankle, and HAROLD HEENAN of Omaha, bus driver, suffered chest injuries. After treatment here, the passengers continued their journey.
JACK HENRY, one of the victims, was a nephew of Mrs. W. E. Straub and Mrs. John McGuire of Lincoln, and a brother of Patrick Henry, time keeper at the last session of the Nebraska legislature.
