Enquirer and News, Battle Creek, Nov. 3, 1978 A-7 Flint boy dies; poison candy feared cause 'fa TB, emphysema group picks officers, honors volunteers Mrs. Lawrence Carter of Athens was re-elected president of the TB and Emphysema Association of Calhoun County at its annual meeting Wedenesday. Re-elected to serve with her as vice president was Jack Winter of Battle Creek. Jack Eagles of Battle Creek was elected secretary-treasurer. of Saginaw, police said. In Saginaw, they were joined by two more children, Sheila, 8, and Rex, 3, who live with Widerhold's ex-wife, police said. Roussea said all children had eaten wrapped candy but only Patrick became ill. The parents threw away unwrapped pieces. In the other case, a parent 1 miles or more from where the Wiederhold boy had been, turned in a piece of fudge his child reportedly had licked. Analysis showed the fudge contained crystals of a caustic substance similar to household drain cleaners, Rousseau said. The Saginaw child with the fudge was not hurt. SAGINAW (AP) A Flint boy's death after eating candy which police fear might have contained poison has prompted a warning to parents to carefully check the Halloween loot their youngsters may still have at home. An autopsy on the body of Patrick Wiederhold, 2, failed to disclose why he died, police Sgt. Richard Rousseau said Thursday. There were no bruises, broken bones or other obvious signs of foul play, Rousseau said, and further laboratory tests were ordered. Those tests were expected to take three days. State police experts at the Bridgeport crime lab were testing the candy. Because he had another case of po- sioned candy in the city, Rousseau said, he issued the warning to parents, even though the two cases did not appear to be related. "I thought it was the prudent thing to do," Rousseau said. The boy, Patrick Wiederhold, became ill at his home Wednesday afternoon after eating a piece of the candy he had collected Tuesday night in Saginaw. He died shortly afterward at St. Joseph Hospital. Rousseau said the boy's father feared his son might have eaten poisoned candy and went to Flint police. The father, Lonny Wiederhold, took Patrick and another son, Lonny Jr. to go trick-or-treating on the northwest side Re-elected to three-year terms on the board of directors were Mrs. Kenneth Crosby, Mrs. Charles McSherry, Donald Worgess, Ernest Moore, all of Battle Creek, and Mrs. Reta Stahl of Albion. Recognized for volunteer service were Mrs. Albert Kiblinger and Mrs. Howard Shutt, both of Battle Creek. They were lauded by association Director Miss Blanch Sylvester for having each contributed more than 1,000 hours of volunteer work during the past year. Hobart Foster and Victor Watson, both of BatUe Creek, and Mr.and Mrs. Raymond Dewey of Marshall were present to thank of the association for the loan of positive pressure breathing units. The equipment is used to aid victims of emphysema and asthma. The association now has 66 such units in use in Calhoun County, which represents $12,000 of the agency's funds. The units are made available for home use with a written prescription from a Mrs. Lawrence Carter re-elected Air Force association will meet Saturday Air Force Sergeants Association Chapter 7 will hold its quarterly meeting at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Augusta Inn, four miles west of Battle Creek on M-96.

THE BiLUQH DOLLAR MH HI If Dan Cochran, 30, is a Vietnam veteran who was badiy shot up as his unit tried to take "Hamburger Hill" in the Ashaw Valley. After the war, Dan returned home and went back to school on the G.I. Bill. He earned his high school diploma, then enrolled at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. That's when his problems began with the Veterans Administration. Somewhere in the bureaucracy, Dan paperwork was fouled up. As a result, he wasn't receiving the checks for his schooling. "Things were really tight." Dan recalls. "I didn't have any other money coming in, so I needed to get everything straightened I called the V.A. office in Detroit, but all I got was the runaround." So Dan, like thousands of 3rd District residents who have had a problem with the federal government, went to Congressman Garry Brown for help And he got it! "Within three weeks, all the back checks arrived." Dan says. "I was amazed how quickly Congressman Brown got action."
