Wood, Elaine (1942)

Walks Half Mile with a Fractured Arm - Her left arm fractured below the elbow, Elaine Wood, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Wood of the Town of Seif, walked a half-mile Monday.

The arm was fractured when she slipped and fell from a slide at the Wildwood School, where Elaine is a student. She believed at first that she suffered only a severely sprained wrist. She struck out from the school toward her home, a mile away; and when she had covered half the distance she found her father filling silo at a neighbor’s place.

Mr. and Mrs. Wood drove her into Neillsville in a car they borrowed on the spot, and the fracture was reduced.
