Larry Pingel was driving Into Ledyard about 1 p.m. when Danny Jorgenson came out of his home and spotted fire under the Pingel pickup. Jorgenson jumped into his truck and stopped the Pingel vehicle at the railroad tracks on the west edge of Ledyard. "Get out, you're on fire," Jorgenson yelled. Pingel had just stepped out of the pickup cab when the gas tank exploded. Flames began to shoot about 14- feet high and then a can of diesel fuel in the back of the pickup exploded. The Ledyard fire department was summoned and fire extingusihers from the Ledyard Lumber Company and Farmer's Co-op Elevator -were used to try to contain the fire. Meanwhile, firemen were unable to get the fire truck started. Finally they hitched a truck onto the engine and towed it to the fire where the blaze was extinguished. The engine and tires of the Pingel pickup were saved. The rest of the pickup was extensively damaged, Auxiliary At Wesley Makes Election Plans WESLEY - American Legion Auxiliary met Oct. 4 in the Legion haU with 16 members in attendance.

Iowa has exciting recreation potentials for everyone from water skiers to bird watchers, but strong leadership is needed to make it possible for lowans and tourists to "go first class." I will work for such pro- |X)sals as large lake programs and watershed projects to give lowans more and better water-centered recreation areas. These projects will give lou'iins better swimming;, boating, fifth- Ing nnd camping facilities. Adjoining areas would be for other lowans who enjoy hiking, picnicking, sunbathing, bird-watching and Winter sports. .' An example is 'Hawkeye Naturama,' a '5,000 to 6,000 acre site in central Iowa. Similar projects should be near all large population centers, and medium - sized developments should be set up in other areas through participation in watershed projects. This is possible NOW. It requires leadership to encourage public and private financing, better use of present facilities, and the knowledge of long- range benefits for lowans and tourists. Such plans are a sound investment for Iowa. MURRAY for GOVERNOR REPUBLICAN Republican State Central Committee, Robert Ray, Chmn. day as there is to be an I.S.E.A. convention in Des Moines.

Check these symptoms: Is it a temptation to guess at a number instead of looking it up? Do you tend to "ride" the dial back? (This can cause the equipment to malfunction.) Do you sometimes transpose numbers (4231 instead of 4321)? EASY CURE: Look the number up, jot it down, dial carefully. Remember, every wrong number you dial inconveniences two people: yourself and a total stranger. Northwestern Bell
