Chesley, was killed almost instantly Thursday afternoon when the pay- loader overturned in the picture above, crushed him to death when it tipped over on him 3 miles south and 2Vz miles east of Titonka about 2:45 p.m. Chesley was employed by the Marian Hagedorn Construction Co. of Spirit Lake and was moving the payloader from.one job to another. The crew had been cutting out trees in dredge ditches for the county. Although there were no witnesses to the accident, Titonka farmer William Fritz was the first person on the scene. He had passed the payloader ;_pn the blacktop just before he turned into his farm drive. The blacktop ends at that corner and a gravel road begins. Fritz told Deputy Sheriff Don Wood, who was called to the scene to investigate, that he just entered his house when he heard a crash. He rushed out and saw the machine in the ditch north of his house. Fritz was unable to get Chesley from underneath the payloader. Dr. R. E. Jongewaard of Wesley was called and the Estherville man was pronounced dead. He died of internal injuries and a crushed chest. The machine tipped over on its top.

Last November Iowa Beef Packers announced the purchase of the 400-acre Frank! farm near Irvington for a feeding plant. It was announced at a meeting here last November the project would be a $17 to $18 million dollar investment, and employ some 150 people. The Greigg announcement said hearings by five midwest- ern congressmen would be held this spring in Iowa by the House livestock and feed grains subcommittee. The five are Greigg, Bert Banstra, Fourth Iowa district, Clair A. Callan, Nebraska, Alec G. Olson, Minnesota, and Holland Redlin, North Dakota. Legislation was introduced in January by Banstra. His proposal would: 1. Ban livestock feeding by packers with more than $1 million in annual gross sales and by retail chain stores with meat- packing operations. 2. Bar any officer or director of a meat-packing firm with more than $1 million in annual gross sales from engaging in packer-feeding. 3. Prohibit meat packing firms covered by the legislation from purchasing livestock for slaughter through contracts with individual farmers. Iowa Beef Packers operate large beef processing facilities at Denison and at Fort Dodge. The Irvington project would probably supply beef to the Fort Dodge plant. It was stated the feeding operation would supply only a small fraction of the number of cattle needed by the plant. The Iowa Beef Packers is the third largest beef packers exceeded only by Swift and Armour.
