The extension dropped onto the third floor of the ramp, causing damage to the wood concrete forms. Damage was believed to be minimal as the crane missed all trusses in the structure. Workers at the scene said there were ten persons working in the area but none was injured. It was the first bucket of concrete of the day. Workers said the crane was not overloaded. It had bean used for lifting as much as five tons. Workmen began disassembling and removing the buckled crane late Friday morning. C. R.

Stanley said big-spending congressmen perpetuate the myth "that a money tree grows in Washington’’ and called for the election of an inflation-proof congress. "The best way to fight inflation is to elect senators who will make the courageous decisions to stop inflationary spending," Stanley said.
