One product he suggested: "Quick Plug," which can be put on walls where water is seeping in. The product can be used while the water is coming in, he said. For those who have to pump water out of basements, he advised caution. Sometimes, water on the outside creates pressure on basement walls, so when water is pumped from the inside, the walls collapse. "You about have to wait for the water to go down, and then pump it out," Waters said. The first step in dealing with a damp basement is drying out the carpet with a wet-dry vacuum, said Bob Barhydt, manager of Waters Just Ask Rental. For standing water, a pump is needed. If carpet is just damp, a carpet cleaner will work, he said. The next step is turning on fans, Barhydt said. Most of the Waters equipment was checked out Thursday. "Somebody needs to put a cork in the sky," Barhydt said. Johnson said much of the work he was doing the past couple of days was in east Salina. However, he also has done some work downtown. He had much the same advice for homeowners: vacuum out the water, and then run fans. However, if the water was dirty, homeowners might want to consider whether they want to keep the carpet, Johnson said, because water can carry contaminants. Johnson also advised people to move furniture off the damp area, and check for dampness behind their sheetrock, where mildew can develop. "If they can get the water out, they're ahead, because the drying process starts then," he said. Larry Strahan, owner of Ser- vicemaster, said many of the cases he has worked have been caused by failed sump pumps. Some of the flooded basements could have been prevented if people had checked their pumps, he said. One of the more severe cases ^FROM PAGE A1 Dealers say they saw Nichols at area gun shows Coke or something and ask if I wanted one. I said no." Rousey said when the FBI first showed her Nichols' photo, she didn't recognize him. But when she saw him on television later, she did recognize him as the man from the gun show. "He's been at other shows we've been at, too," Rousey said. "He sells surplus and I buy some surplus. Who knows what all I've bought from him." Rousey said her partner at Larry's Gun & Ammo noticed that Nichols was selling glass bottles of ammonium nitrate at his booth — the fertilizer used to make the 4,800-pound bomb that destroyed the federal building, killing 167 people. Deb Garman, co-owner of Pawnee Guns & Ammo in Jamestown, said she heard that Nichols told a customer how to make a bomb using the fertilizer. Garman bought military "Meals Ready to Eat" from Nichols' table at the Salina gun show, she said. since Tuesday's rain was a backup of sewer pipes into a church basement on Ohio Street, Strahan said. Egress windows, now required in basements of new houses, also have caused some problems, he said. He saw one that was pushed open by water. Strahan said people with flooded basements should raise any wooden furniture onto wooden blocks or move it onto concrete. Stained wooden furniture can "bleed" onto carpet, leaving a stain that's difficult to remove, he said. Most newer carpets are mildew- proof, Strahan said. However, in many cases, the pad beneath the carpet should be removed. He suggested people drape their carpet over paint cans or plastic containers that won't rust to help the carpet dry. Strahan said a homeowner can tell if their carpet pad needs to be removed with this test: If you step on the carpet and water comes up around you're foot, take the carpet out. Robert McMillan, owner of Blooze Basement Repair, said the most important thing a homeowner can do to prevent water from entering their home is "maintain positive drainage around the house." That means keeping gutters clean and removing barriers, such as plastic lawn edging, that can hold in water. "Water has to run away from the house as fast as possible," McMillan said. Sometimes, concrete around a home will slope toward the house. If that's the case, the concrete should be replaced or raised to slope away from the house, he said. McMillan said basement walls can be water-proofed. He uses a nontoxic gel. He drills holes around the home to the footing of the basement and pours in the gel, which "fills voids like a dentist fills cavities," he said. If the home is leaking from the floor, drain tiles and a sump pump are needed, he said. Garman said she recognized Nichols on television because he was wearing the same shirt he wore the Sunday of the Salina show. He'd also worn the same shirt at a gun show in Manhattan, she said. "I remembered him, because I went by his table and he had some stuff I wanted to buy, and I asked if he had a dealer price," Garman said. Nichols tried to sell her 25 cases of MREs, Garman said, but she wanted only two. And he refused to take a check, insisting on cash, she said. "A lot of times people won't take checks from other people, but if it's another dealer, they'll take it," Garman said. "He wouldn't take a check even from another dealer." Garman said both Nichols and McVeigh, who served in the Army together at Fort Riley, were at a gun show in Manhattan before the bombing. Nichols was quiet the few times she saw him at shows, Garman said, not talking much even to other dealers. "He didn't hardly say anything," she said. FOR YOUR INFORMATION >FROM PAGE A1 Nichols' attorney finds FBI's evidence dubious McVeigh, 27, has been in federal custody since two days after the April 19 bombing, which killed 167 people when it shattered a federal office building in Oklahoma City. U.S. Magistrate Ronald Howland ruled after Thursday's hearing that there was probable cause to keep Nichols, 41 — a friend of McVeigh's — in custody on bombing charges. Nichols' lawyer, Michael Tigar, argued that his client is a victim of guilt by association and questionable circumstantial evidence. "There are people out there who hold anti-government views," Tigar said. "Making inferences from associations is always dangerous." Nichols has been in custody since he surrendered to police near his home in Herington, Kan., after hearing he was wanted for questioning. Tigar suggested that his voluntary surrender showed Nichols is innocent. "The guilty flee where no man pursueth, but the righteous are as bold as a lion," Tigar said, quoting from the Bible's Book of Proverbs. That drew a reply from Merrick Garland, of Reno's office, that Nichols "came in voluntarily because he knew he was being looked for. That does not suggest innocence." Rowland gave Tigar seven days to file a motion in support of bail for Nichols. After that, prosecutors will have seven days to respond before a judge schedules a hearing. The lone witness at Thursday's hearing, FBI Agent Errol Myers, testified mainly about what authorities have said was bomb- making material found in Nichols' home.
