HEADON CRASH KILLS ALL FIVE IN TWO AUTOS.

By The Associated Press.
There were no survivors yesterday after two autos carrying five persons, smashed headon near Antigo. Other fatal mishaps gave Wisconsin a weekend accidental death toll of eight.
Killed in the headon collision on Highway 64, 10 miles east of Antigo, were:
THEODORE R. CHRISTIANSON, 50, of Oshkosh;
his mother-in-law, MRS. EMMA SCHARTEAU, 71, of Oshkosh;
his 14-year-old son, GORDON;
and MR. and MRS. ALBERT MASKE, both 60, of Marinette, who were in the other car.
GORDON died of injuries at an Antigo hospital. The others were killed instantly. Langlade County Sheriff Ray Feller said the MASKE auto apparently was in the wrong traffic lane.
The REV. CHARLES P. CARSON, 78, retired Milwaukee Episcopal minister, was killed Sunday night, when he was struck by a car while walking on a West Side Milwaukee street.
FRANCIS LORING, 17, Kendall Township (Lafayette County), was killed Saturday night when the car in which he was riding ran into a ditch off County Trunk G near Belmont and overturned.
