Front page of The Soda Springs Chieftan, article reads:
Wayan Girl Dies As Result of Accident; Extent of Other Girl Still Undecided.

Lola Call, 16, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Call of Wayan suffered fatal injuries and Edna Stoor, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Stoor of Soda Springs, suffered a crushed nose, face cuts and back injuries that may be serious Sunday morning shortly after 9 o'clock in one of the most distressing car accidents occuring in this vicinity in some time.
The accident took place at a pont which is becoming known as "death curve" about three miles east of town. Harold Cummings, 25, of Meadowville was driver of the car but escaped injury except for bruises. The car turned over as the driver applied the brakes to completer the curve, the car already being on the wrong side of the road as the turn was attempted according to report.
Miss Call was rushed to the Caribou Hospital, her lower back pierced by a hardwood splinter. Everything possible was done for her but she died Monday morning shorlty after 2 o'clock. Miss Stoor was thought to be recovering nicely from her injuries but a constant and distressing pain in her back is expected to make an x-ray examination neccesary.
Funeral services for Miss Call were held Tuesday at 2 o'clock in the local LDS Chapel under the direction of Bishop K.G. Balls and with a large crowd of sympathetic friends in attendance.
The speakers were Willard Call of Chesterfield, Bishop Wiley Tingey of Wayan, Principal A. Ira Cox of the local elementary school and Bishop Balls. C. Matthews offered the opening prayer and Harry Horsley the benediction. Musical numbers included three selections by the ward choir, a vocal solo by Arthur Lau and a Hawaiian Guitar solo by Miss Jean Urby. Interment took place in Mound Cemetary.
The deceased young woman was a native of Wayan, where she attended school having finished her first year of high school work the spring. She was popular with all who knew her, including Soda Springs young folks who net her while visiting with Miss Stoor. Surviving her are her parents and six brothers and sisters, Ben, Desmond, Milly, May and Leah Call.

That was the actual content in the paper. I shall correct a few mistakes:
Her name was Ola, not Lola. The driver was Harold Cummins not Cummings.
A sister Milly is spelled Mili.
And the last sister, Leah, is actually Eliza Lei.
