Coming out with Ueorge Mikkelsen left and Orville Peters pushing Getting Away From It Dig Out Sow 700 Feet Up Drain Tile What with cows in silos and sows in pipes someone seems to be putting the squeeze on the animal world Wednesday Clem Hebel farmer 5 miles northeast of Mason City had to dig a 350 pound sow out of a 24 inch drain tile more than 2 city blocks from the outlet Maybe she was trying to away from it all surmised Clem explaining thatttie sow gave birth Sunday to11 little pigs He saw the vpigs that day but not the Clem said but it was notuntil Tuesday when he was cutting weeds nearby that he saw the little porkers huddled to gether and alone and realized that they had no mother t Began Hunting His 11yearold son Robert be gan hunting for her and late in the afternoon put his head to the outlet of the drain tile and heard her inside Digging began at 7 pm Tues day with neighbors George Mik kelsen and Orville Peters helping The 1st hole went down about 100 feet from the drain outlet A hole was broken in the pipe and Hebel stuck his head in and listened He coUld hear farther up the pipe Another hole was started about 100 feet farther up into the field It was a big hole and took a lot of digging Hebel said because it was dark and they didnt start digging directly above the pipe Farther Up The sow still was farther up By that time is was 1 oclock in the morning The men decided that it was too hard to find the tile in the dark and went home for a few hours of sleep They started again at daylight The sow could still be heard and seemed to be moving so the men went several hundred feet farther up into the soybean field and started another trench across the probable location of the tile line By probing in the 10 foot long ditch with a steel rod they located the tile and dug down 7 feet to break it again This time the sow was below them but still could not be seen 15 Feet Away They staVted digging again nearer the outlet The 4th hole revealed the sow but 15 feet away lying in the water in the tile and seemingly too weak to move She couldnt be coaxed nearer So the 5th hole was dug right above her But when the tile was broken she backed away far enough that the men could not reach her This time however the succulent soybeans from the field above tempted her back to the hole where the men offered them to her and a rope was knotted around her forelegs With lots of help from the men she washoisted back to daylight and into a truck before noon Wednesdayafternoon she was still in the truck too weak to move after more than 2 days with out food Hebel thought she would recover all right but he wasnt so sure about saving the little pigs Her udders probably will dry up afterthe 2 days of starvation and no pigs to take the milk he said so she will be unable to feed them even after she gets her strength back Needs Luck Change Welcome N Car UR Paul Hinkie a 28yearold laundry truckdriver said Wednesday he would welcome a change of luck Two months ago
