Twenty Years Ago - Jan. 7, 1932

Death was the final victor in a heroic battle against the elements New Year's Eve, when two band of men valiantly fought the giant snow drifts between the 77 Hill and Lance Creek field, in order to get medical aid to Harry Sengstack, 47 year old driller, who was critically ill with pneumonia. C. F. Bautch and Lloyd Bowman volunteered to go with Dr. Reckling and try to help him get through to Lance Creek. They shoveled their way to Manville where they joined L. C. Stoddard and Oscar Rudd with the Stoddard truck. Earl Grimm and his two boys with their truck joined in the battle. At midnight they reached 77 Hill and before long the Lance Creek group headed by Bert Henton and his group of shovelers and trucks were met. Arriving at the Sengstack home the doctor decided that the patient's only chance to survive was to get him to an oxygen tent and better medical facilities. So one of the cars was fitted up as an ambulance and the trip back to Lusk was made in safety arriving at 3:00 a.m. At first Mr. Sengstack rallied but his heart failed and he passed away.
