And To The Parents We'd Just Like To Remind You That We Appreciate An Opportunity To Serve Any Of Your Banking Needs. Armstrong & Fenlon All Savings Insured To 510,000 Under F. D. I. C Fenlon — A short wave radio contact "saved Ihe bacon" at Fenlon, lale Saturday afternoon after Ihe sleel and snow sldrm had severed all eleclrical service into Jown, and also put Ihe long distance lines oul of commission. A few minutes after 2 p.m., just as Ihs free movies for Ihe kids were getting underway, the power current be- gpn to weaken and flicker, ft became necessary lo post- pona Ihe movie. In the rnean- lim 1 ?, Santa Claus had arrived and distributed gifts, Jbul the development in the movie was disappointing. An nfforl was made lo put Ihrough a long distance call lo Iowa Light & Power El Armstrong, but Ihs circuits were down and no contact could be made. Then Paul Hudson, Fenton barber and one of Ihe town's Iwo amateur radio short, wave fans, who was in con-' tact with anplher station al Pipestone, Minn, had an inspiration. He contacted Pipe- sione and askeS Ihe operator there, who, happened lo be the wife of a Pipeslone physician, if she would call Ihe power company al Armstrong and tell Ihem lhal Ihe power was failing al Fenlon. She called, and immediately reported back lo the Fenton operator lhal the information had been passed along. The power company emergency crew was immediately assembled, bul before they could gel underway the currenl al Fenlon went completely out. Had Hudson wailed a few minules longer, he would > have had no power for his short wave set. Power and light was restored afler lhal as quickly as possible. en Fuhr Is In tests at loua State Col!e$v, Stitbeslrol Stepped up beef gains ;.-, much as ll f ,'o.
