    "Thistle Man Meets Death
    J. Sackett, 37, of Thistle, was instantly killed at his home Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 when the body of an automobile he was repairing dropped several inches, crushing his head between the rear right wheel and the fender.
    Sackett was removing bolts from the rear spring of the car at the time, according to Deputy Sheriffs J.P. Gourley and Walter Durrant, who made an investigation of the death. It is presumed that as he removed one of the bolts the prop that held the body of the car broke with the result that his head was caught between the fender and the wheel.
    Hearing the crash, his widow, Mrs. Florence Sackett, ran into the back yard where her husband had been working and found him caught between the fender and the wheel. She screamed for help and D.C. Kirkwood, Harry Lombardi, Frank Edwards and Leslie Kirkwood responded and extricated the body.
    In addition to his widow, he is survived by three children, Thela, 11, Billy, 9, and Ruth, 7; also his father, who lives at Clay Springs, Arizona, and three sisters. The body was taken in charge by a Spanish Fork mortician. Funeral announcement will be announced later."
