Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - October 15, 1975, Sioux Center, IowaIn n editorials m � fat firemen perform efficient Rescue work deeds filed in Sioux county y a a a several members of the Sioux Center Emer gency medical squad and several members of the local Volunteer fire department Are deserving of Public commendation for the efficient Way they handled the emergency at the local Farmers Coop society elevator Here wednesday afternoon. Two Sioux Center men had been overpowered by toxic fumes in a 15 it. Buttermilk pit. They were lying unconscious in the Bottom of the pit that was covered with 6 to 8 inches of Semi solid Buttermilk when the emergency alarm was sounded. The Only opening to the Cement lined pit was a manhole approximately 30 inches across. The pit was known at the time of the alarm to be filled with a lethal Gas of some kind and so entry into the put by Rescue members was too risky to under take without air Paks or other protective gear. The size of the manhole did not permit a Man to enter wearing an air Pak. The emt group and firemen on the scene decided a scuba diving outfit might work but where to get one someone remembered Larry Dixon local chiropractor had such equipment. A Rhan was hurriedly dispatched to borrow it. Meanwhile time was being elusive. The need to get the men out fast was apparent. In desperation one of the firemen retrieved from the fire truck on the scene a Pike pole 15 it in length and always carried on the truck. By lowering a securely held fireman slightly into the manhole with the Pike pole in hand he managed to Hook the unconscious men by their belts and they were slowly mane Vered up through the Small opening with sheer muscle providing the lifting Power. Bill Vlieger the first Man who had gone into the pit and passed out was pronounced dead by or. a. L. Mcgilvra when he was pulled through the manhole. Stan Feekes the second Man to be knocked out by the fumes when he had attempted to retrieve Vlieger gasped faintly As he was brought out and firemen and emt members immediately went to work on him on the spot rendering artificial resuscitation and at one Point heart Massage. They worked fast and steadily. A heart beat that at first was very weak slowly strengthened. He was Given oxygen and this seemed to improve his very parodic breathing. At this Point he was placed in the local ambulance and As emt members continued to work Over him was rushed to the local Hospital. There he was checked out by a doctor Given a couple of shots cleaned up a bit and then taken by ambulance to st. Joseph s Hospital where he was admitted to the intensive care Ward. Five emt personnel Rode with him to Sioux City to continue giving him oxygen and other attention. By now Stan 27, was reacting to the effects of the toxic fumes and for a time became difficult to keep calmed and was unreceptive to first Aid Given by the emt people. But the diligent work of the Ems kept him alive. Once Stan was in the intensive care Ward their work was Over. But the Ems efforts will not soon be forgotten by those who sensed at the time that without such help a second Man would have succumbed As a result of wednesday s tragedy. Several local fireman also played important roles in saving Stan s life. Emt personnel who had responded to the Eleva Tor emergency Call included mrs. Nestor Schenk Lee Erickson Dave Huisman Paul Clousing Gerald Harskamp Marion Mouw. Harskamp and Mouw Are also members of the fire department. Faith & mine by Tom Westfall Iii Iii i i How to win in the game of life a Reader wrote recently you Are hopelessly old fashioned if you still cling to outmoded moral values. Moral Laws have proved to be repressive. We live today in a world of free Choice where we establish our own values do our own my readers words reflect the kind of shallow thinking which distinguishes our age. With just a Little real brain work anyone can de Duce that relative values soon equal no values at All. Further thought helps one to see How Only confusion and ultimate breakdown can re sult from such an immature understanding of reality. Universal rules remain essential to our Well being both individually and corporately. Think of a football game where each player makes his own rules. Envision a checker game where the players move their pieces without reference to the rules. Rules constitute the Means by which any game becomes meaningful and enjoyable even the game of life. Or put it another Way. When you bought your car you received an operator s manual. In contained detailed instructions for Kee Oina your car running smoothly. Having built the car the manufacturer knew what care it required to operate efficiently. You can follow is instructions and enjoy trouble free driving for Many years or you can ignore them and witness the failure of your automobile the Choice is yours. Similarly our creator built us with certain needs these needs Are met when we observe his Laws. Rather than being restrictive his rules Are meant to enhance our real enjoyment of life. Without them life fails somewhere along the line. Hunu a Tader Mora not outmoded. We never really break god s Laws we Only break our lives against them. Ford. Peter Haverhals jr., Hawarden Ford.
