      Final Rites Scheduled for Victim

      Funeral services will be held Monday for Konrad Edwin Branecky, 53 year old
      Victoria County farmer killed in a tractor-auto collision on the
      Halletsville Highway Friday night.

      Services will be held at 9:30 a.m. from the Duckett-Conner Mortuary Chapel
      and at 10 a.m. from our lady of Victory Catholic Church with a Requiem High
      Mass. Burial will be in Resurrection Cemetery with Rev. John Moore
      officiating.

      A rosary will be recited Sunday at 7:30 p.m. at the chapel.

      Thrown from Tractor

      Mr. Branecky died in a local hospital about two hours after he was thrown
      from his farm tractor when it collided with an auto about 8 p.m.
      Investigating highway patrolmen said the 1957 model auto collided with the
      rear of Branecky's tractor as they were both headed towards Victoria. He
      was thrown approximately 20 feet through the air to the pavement.

      A formal verdict in the death was withheld by Justice of the Peace Alfred C.
      Baass pending an investigation.

      First Fatality

      Mr. Branecky was the first traffic fatality in the city this year. A
      Victoria resident for 21 years, he was born February 12, 1906 in Flatonia,

      Branecky, now of Victoria. A resident of the Wood Hi community for 21
      years, he lived on route 4 for the past three months. He was a member of
      our Lady of Victory Church.
