He is in the Deadwoo~i hospital where his condition is re- ported as critical. The accident occurred while Crisman was taking a log to his sawmill. He was holding the log on the sled with a canthook, afire" unchaining it, when the log began to slip. Unable to hold the log with the hook, Crisman tried to move out of the way but was hampered by the deep snow. The log fell across his thighs, pinning him to the ~round where he remained for thirty minutes until he was dis- covered. He was rushed to the Deadwood hospital in the C. D. Roberts ambulance, At the hospital, he was found to have both legs broken at the thighs and one ankle broken. Shock and other complications increased the seriousness of his injury. He was given blood transfusions and plac- ed on the danger list. Neighbor Night Is Attended by O er 200; Sponsored by Co-op A Co-op Neighbor Night was ~bserved by the Hulett Co-op o~t Feb. 18.
