. . .
• The body of John J. Cornelsen, 16, of Hutchinson was found near the Rock island railroad track northeast of that city last Wednesday morning. The pickup truck which the youth had driven was parked near the track, and he apparently was struck by an eastbound train. The young man's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edmer G. Cornelsen, had reported him missing. He was a junior at Hutchinson High School, where his father teaches psychology, and a member of the Bethany Nazarene Church, Hutchinson. The funeral was conducted at the church on Friday.
