TWO NIPCO EMPIX)YES UNHURT IN COLLAPSE OF CHEROKEE COUNTY BRIDGE UNDER WEIGHT OF BIG BOOM TRUCK Bill Kocdani and - John Gotto Drop 25 Feet into Creek Bed Two Le Mars men in the cab of a Northwest Iowa Power Cooperative boom truck dropped 25 feet into a creek bed early Tuesday afternoon when a Cherokee county road bridge collapsed under the weight of the vehicle. Bill Koedam, the driver, and John Gotto escaped injury. Damage to the 1962 International truck was minor, a few dents and broken hydraulic hose. The bridge was a steel and wood structure across Mill creek about four miles southwest of Larrabee in the Cherokee vicinity. Mr. Koedam said the bridge collapse was "like air going out of the big tire." The bridge and boom truck .slumped into the creek bed about 1:30 p.m. The bridge, which had been in place for many years, had a four-ton load limit. Weight of the truck was 15 tons. It was reported the load limit sign was folded in two like a book and turned sideways in a ditch. Examination revealed the sign was peppered with rifle and-shotgun holes, leaving the numerals illegible. NIPCO officials said today work is underway to get the .truck out of the creek bed. "Bulldozers ai-e being used to slope a grade from the road down 'to 'tlie' ditch level. ;?It was hoijed^the truck would be 'Extricated by late this afternoon.

Supersweet's policy of receiving advice "directly from the field" and then acting upon it is said to be one of the reasons for its marketing success. � McCabe, who lives at 062 Greenwood Ave., began with Supersweet in'1954,as a salesman at Albert Lea Minn. lii March 1957, he moved to Estherville as sales manager for eastern Iowa. ?,; He ; is a former professional ^basiEiball. player.

Mr. Maser said it is planned to. begin work immediately on the exterior of the structure, while the; weather is good. The work of rer. modeling the interior will get underway later this winter, he in-i dicnted. After a number of question.s from the council .members, the application was approved. It had' won the approval of the city plan-, ning commis.sion the previous evening.
