A LARGE BOOM attached to a drag-line tipped over on McGregor street about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, blocking traffic for a time and causing a good deal of work beofre it was righted. The unit was picking up unused poles along the ditch for the Northwestern Bell Telephone Co. which had layed an un- derground cable and thus did not use the poles anymore. As one pole was picked up, the drag-line lurched and the boom flipped completely across the road into the ditch, tipping over the drag-line unit as shown above.
