The rolling mill for working metals was first described by Leonardo da Vinci. Walks to safety in blizzard Vern Jensen, who has traveled for years for the Sunray DX company, drove into Humboldl Wednesday afternoon about three o'clock from the east and thinking the roads were still good enough for travel, headed For Algona on highway 169. By the time he was only a mile out of Humboldt, he realized it was too bad to proceed but he couldn't see a place to turn around so he continued on towards Algona. Visibility got so bad he could hardly tell if he was still on the pavement. He didn't know where he was until he went under the underpass at the Bocle-Livermore corner. A few yards after that, the left front of his car settled on the wrong side of the road in a ditch. JENSEN FELT it was better to find a place to stay for the night then rather than after it got dark. He had plenty of foul weather gear with him. After walking a considerable distance, he recognized a corn crib. To keep the snow from blowing inside the parka hood, he kept his head turned northeast and struggled on. All at once, a dog ran out to greet him and he knew a farmhouse was near. It was the Roy Brown farm (where heavy tornado damage was done last summer) just a mile towards Algona from the Bode-Livermore intersection. He stayed all night there. Shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday, the snow plow came past so Vern called Pete Werling at St. Joe, and he came with the wrecker and pulled his car out of the ditch. JENSEN reached Algona about 6 p.m. He noticed his car had been hard to steer but he had made left turns at Hutzell's corner and again just a block from his home. But in the process of parking his car, he had a right turn and was unable to do it. Within a few feet of his own house, he came the closest to an accident as he had in both days. His car missed another parked car by two inches! NIGHT IN CAR Burt — K. J. Mulligan and Henry Grandgenett, Bancroft, started home from Burt Wednesday during the blizzard. Their car could not get through a snow bank west of the Standard Oil station and they spent that night in their car. About 9 a.m. Thursday Ralph Johnston went out with the snow plow and they wefe brought to a doctors office. They went home Friday after the roads were opened.
