      Funeral services were held today for John Anker, 38, town of Brillion farmer, and Michael Kasczarcki, 40, Hollandtown, Brown County, victims of an automobile crash last Saturday, near Forest Junction. Anker is survived by his wife and stepson, Raymond Hernke, 10, who was riding with the two men in their car when it collided with a truck driven by Jerome Foster of Hilbert Junction.

      Kasczarcki is survived by his widow and a family of 15 children. Reports from Green Bay state that the condition of the Hernke boy, who has a fractured skull and internal injuries, still remains critical.

      Detailed reports of the accident show that Kasczarcki had been at the Anker farm in the afternoon where he applied for work. He had been accepted and Anker was driving his back to this home where he intended to get his belongings. They were within a half mile of their destination when the accident happened.

      Foester sustained a ruptured right ear drum and his face was cut but he was released from the Green Bay hospital shortly after treatment. Anker was a new resident of the town of Brillion. He had come from Coleman three weeks ago to manage the farm of his father-in-law, Theodore Franzke.
