Funeral services for Dale Mark Hubrig, 16, of Fairmount, will be held Thursday, (today)

LARRY LINGEN is VICTIM of TRAGIC MISHAP 
(Picture shown - with caption...) This is the Chevrolet station wagon as it came to a 
stop in a field on the east side of the road near the Francis Schiltz farm south of Hankin- 
son. The right front of car was quite badly damaged. 

(154) 



A hunting trip for five teenagers ended in tragedy Monday afternoon at about 3:30, 
when Larry Lingen, 15 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Lingen of Hankinson, was accidentally 
shot in the back of the head as a rifle was discharged. He passed away in a Fargo hospital 
at 6:30 that same evening. 

In a rush to get Larry to town for medical attendtion the station wagon driven by Joe 
Mangini went out of control on a stretch of county road eight miles south of Hankinson, 
traveled the ditch for several rods and came to a stop, without turning over, in a field 
after hitting several fence posts. 

Two of the youths raced to the Francis Schiltz farm home about a half a mile away 
where the Wipperman Ambulance was called. The youth was rushed to Hankinson where Dr. 
Schleinitz gave emergency treatment before being taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Fargo. 

The youths left Hankinson about 3 PM for the area south of Hankinson on a gopher 
hunting trip. They were: Joe Mangini, son of Dr. and Mrs. Wayne Peterson, driver of the 
Peterson wagon; Paul Schleinitz, son of Dr. and Mrs. F. B. Schleinitz; Paul Fischer, son 
of Mr. and Mrs. James Fischer; Gary Bozovsky, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Bozovsky, and 
Larry Lingen, all of Hankinson. 

The shooting mishap occurred about a mile south of where the car left the road. Acc- 
ording to the Sheriff's Office, they were target shooting at some blackbirds from the road 
when Lingen was hit in the back of the head. It was in the rush to get Lingen back to 
town for medical attention that the car accident happened. None of the boys were injured 
in the auto mishap, although the wagon was badly damaged. 

Three of the five youths had rifles, a spokesman from the Sheriff's Office said. It 
was the first time the boys had left the car on their hunting trip to do any shooting when 
Lingen was hit. 

Funeral services for Larry Lingen will be held from St. Philip's Church, Thursday 
morning at 10 with Father L. V. Studzinski celebrating the Funeral Mass. Interment will be 
in Calvary Cemetery, Hankinson. 

Rosary will be recited at the Wipperman Funeral Home at 8:30 PM. , Wednesday evening. 
Larry Lingen was born Oct. 6th, 1950 at Fargo and is survived by his parents, Nick and Marc- 
ella Lingen and a sister, Linda. He attended school at St. Francis Academy in Hankinson 
and would have been a sophomore this coming term.
