     Sgt. Clarence Ray Husk, 27, a former North High School student, was killed in Vietnam last Friday, his family has been notified.  He was killed by machingun fire and was dead by the time medics could reach him, according to information sent his family. Sgt. Husk was a member of a Evansville National Guard unit while attending North High.  He left high school before graduating to enter the regular Army.  He had been in the Army for nine years, serving in many parts of the U.S., Germany and Korea.  His first tour of duty in Vietnam began last September. 
     He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Husk, now of San Antonio, Tex., and brother of James Husk, 639 Jackson.  He is also survived by a wife, Inga, of near Frankfort, Germany, and two sons, also of Germany; another brother, Bobby Joe, and sister, Mrs. Bonnie Lunn, both of San Antonio.
     His body will be flown to the U.S. Thursday for burial Friday in the Fort Sam Houston (Tex) Cemetery.
