Death of Merle Gwin Creamerymen Meet Fearful Death In Big Plant At Crete

EXPLOSION AND ESCAPING STEAM KILL TWO MEN HIGH PRESSURE BLOWS OFF ELBOW OF MAIN PIPE IN CRETE CREAMERY THREE OTHERS SERIOUSLY SCALDED

Injured at 7 A. M. Thursday-Taken to Lincoln Hospital--Pass Away at Noon

Lincoln, July 6, (by the Associated Press)--- Louis Smerz, 25, died todnight at the hospital here, making the third fatality in the explosion. Others in a serious condition are Joseph Raze and Wolford Madere. The latter may recover but not much hope is held for Raizek.

While donning the work clothes preparatory for beginning the work of the day at the Fairmont Creamery company in Crete at 7 A. M. Thursday, the elbow of a steam pipe blew off a main, fatally scalding three others, and injuring one to a lesser extent. Steve Plouzek, 24, and Merle Gwinn, 35, died at St. Elizabeths' hospital at `2 noon and 1 P. M. respectively where they had been taken in an ambulance immediately following the accident. Louis Smez, Wilfred Madore and Joe Ralsek are suffering from burns on their entire bodies, at the same hospital where they were taken on the train. They are not out of danger yet. Joe Maryska was slightly scaded on his arm, but did not have to go to the hospital.

EXIT CLOSED

The closing of the steam pipe by water that had collected in a sag appears to have been the cause of the explosion. The high pressure of the boilers was to much for the elbow joint. Gwinn was but two feet from the joint when the fitting was blown off striking him in the abdominal region knocking him to the floor. Efforts were made by the others to drag him out of the room but the superheated steam drove them away, causing them to seek escape to the open air where help might be secured. Being unable to find the door, they tried to get out of the windows but were prevented from so duing by heavy wire mesh on the frame. Someone on the outside opened the door and released them. Gwinn was on the outside when the last man reached there, evidently having been dragged by one of the imprisoned men though it is not known which one it was. First aid was given and arrangements made to take them to the hospital at once.

Physicians believe that Madore has a fair chance for recovery.

Drs J. Hartman of Crete, David Hilton, E. R. Myerson, Rusell zJohnson and Edward Zimmer, of Lincoln attended the men.

All of the men who are believed to be fatally injured are married and have families with minor children. Gwin has four minor children. He was a brother-in-law of M. D. Osterhout, manager of the creamery. Ralsek's wife was at his bedside continually.


He was buried in July 1922 at Washington Cemetery, Washington, Washington Co., KS, Findagrave #40098930.
