10 KILLED IN TEXAS AUTO CRASH.
Alamo, Tex. (AP) -- Ten persons were killed on a rainslick highway yesterday in a shattering automobile crash that jammed the speedometer on one vehicle at 80 m.p.h. Four of the dead were children. The head-on collision occurred seven miles south of here in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, practically on the Texas-Mexico border. Muddy rescue workers pried and tugged for more than an hour to remove nine bodies from one crumpled automobile.

The dead:
JOHN T. CLOSNER, 42, Mercedes, Tex., who was thrown from his car in which he was traveling alone.
ANTERO IBANEZ TOVAR, 37, La Feria, Tex., driver of the second car.
BENITO COMACHO, 32, and ADELIA COMACHO, 23, and their three children, ZOLANDO, 5, NINFA, 4, and MINERVA, 3, all of La Feria.
DEFINIO MORALES TOVAR, 35, Harlingen, Tex.
JUAN HERNANDEZ, 19, and LINDA HERNANDEZ, 5, believed to be from La Feria. The bodies were taken to nearby Pharr, Tex., where relatives identified them at a funeral home. All adults but CLOSNER were migrant farm workers. Highway patrolman M. L. Dailey said the speedometer on the car of CLOSNER, a farmer and father of eight, was stuck at 80 miles per hour. CLOSNER was traveling east and the other car west, Daialey said.
