      A 22-year-old woman was killed and three youths were injured when their car slid past a curve on a gravel road, slamming into a tree, near Schulenburg early Monday.

       

      Dead is Miss Millie Doris Kunschick, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Willie Kunschick of Holman.

       

      In Youens Hospital...Charlie Kunschick, 17, brother of the dead woman, was treated for a broken arm but not hospitalized.

       

      The wreck occurred about a half mile north of Highway 90, on the gravel road that crosses the highway at the "birdhouse hill," at about 3 a.m.

       

      Charlie Kunschick, despite his broken arm, ran to Weimar, a distance of about six miles, to report the wreck.  He realized later, he said, that the wreck was nearer Schulenburg, but at the time he was too excited.

       

      At the place where the wreck occurred, the road turns sharply to the left, or west.  Charlie said the car's driver, "Butch" Kardstedt, was unfamiliar with the route and applied the brakes after the car was into the turn.  It skidded on loose grave.  Kunschick and James Karstedt were thrown out of the car.

       

      Young Kunschick said his sister was still alive, on the rear floorboard, when he left, but she was dead by the time help arrived.

       

      Kunschick ran to Rudy's Cafe here, and an employee phoned to Schulenburg for an ambulance and police.
