5 Wis.2d 271 (1958)

BOWERS, Plaintiff and Respondent, v. TREUTHARDT and others, Defendants and Respondents: LUDDEN, Administrator, and another, Defendants and Appellants.

Supreme Court of Wisconsin.

November 5, 1958.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

For the appellants there was a brief by Jeffris, Mouat, Oestreich, Wood & Cunningham, and oral argument by Louis D. Gage, Jr., and by Roy E. Berg, all of Janesville.

For the respondent Helen I. Bowers there was a brief by Gruhle & Fessler of Sheboygan, and oral argument by Jacob A. Fessler.

For the respondents Treuthardt, Waelti, and the General Casualty Insurance Company there was a brief and oral argument by John C. Wickhem and by Robert H. Consigny, both of Janesville.


Appellants assert that the finding of Mrs. Ludden's causal negligence as to lookout was not supported by the evidence; that there was no joint enterprise; and that an instruction which erroneously stated the statutory speed limit was prejudicial. Treuthardt and his insurer contend that if the question were reached, the finding of Treuthardt's causal negligence for failure to yield half the highway was not supported by the evidence.
