Arbogast. ; • n n Fenion — A short wave radio contact "saved the bacon" ai FenJoh, late Saturday afternoon after the sleet and snow storm had severed all electrical service into town, and also put the long distance lines out of commission. A few minutes after 2 'p.m.. just as the free movies for Ihe kids were getting underway, the power current be- gen to weaken and flicker. It became necessary to postpone the movie. In the mean- lime, Santa Glaus had arrived and distributed gifts, but the development in, the movie was disappointing. An effort was made to put through a long distance call , lo Iowa Light & Power at Armstrong, but the circuits •were down and no contact could be made. Then Paul Hudson, Fenion barber and one of the town's two amateur radio short wave fans, who was in contact with another station at Pipesione, Minn, had an inspiration. He contacted Pipestone and asked the 'operator there, who happened to be the wife of a Pipestone physician, if she would call Ihe power company at Armstrong and tell them that the power was failing at Fen- Ion. She called, and immediately reported back to the Fenion operator that the information had been passed along. The power company emergency crew was immediately assembled, but before they could get underway the current at Fenton went completely out. Had Hudson waited a few minutes longer, he would have had no power for his short wave set. Power and light was restored after that as quickly as possible.
