THE OHIO COUNTY TIMES, HARTFORD, KENTUCKY, FEBRUARY 12, 1976 16 Special Radio Program Continued from page I helicopters and small planes all over the landing strip. "Windows were out of the terminal, large pieces of marble were everywhere, plaster was crumpled to bits and there was ,panic in the eyes of many epople huddled in groups," Mrs. Duncan said. She said their plane was the only tourist craft allowed to land and the customs agent could not understand how they got in. "As we drove along the streets we could see destruction everywhere. The old Continental Hotel across the street from the new one was com- pletely demolished. The clock in the town stopped at 3: 02, the exact time of the first quake which registered 7.5 on the Richter Scale," she added. Mrs. Duncan said some in her group started to panic when they reached the hotel. Most rooms, she said, were like they were when the quake hit. "Plaster was crumbling everywhere and most of the doors would not close. Even if they could close, there were no keys because the people who fled took them." Most of the hotel employes, Mrs. Duncan said, had left the hotel in search of loved ones and friends. Only the coffee shop was open and it served only bread and rice. "Our group slept with their clothes on but, there was very little sleep with the constant tremors. Ambulances screamed all night and planes and helicopters flew overhead. "The first good news we heard was about a flight of 17 planes from the United States carrying tents, food, doctors and medical supplies. It had taken 48 hours for relief to arrive. "Fourteen of our group, us in- cluded, left for the private airport at 6:30 to fly to Tikal, a jungle city in Guatamala. This proved to be the best decision we had made because while we were enjoying the jungle life, history, geography and archeology, others in our group were experiencing another quake at Guatamala City which registered 5.15 on the scale. The group of 17 were flown back to Guatamala City and were given a tearful welcome by the rest of the tourists who were concerned about their safety. Mrs. Duncan said all hotels, shops and restaurants were closed and in shambles. Their hotel was the only one open for the tourist group and newsmen. oup, "People in the streets were crying, moaning and begging. Children were sleeping in boxes or on the grass," she said. The group was taken by bus to the main airport at 6:30. A ticket office had been established in a grassy area away from the terminal. ' The bus was taken inside a fenced area and guards stood at the gate. According to other accounts, this precaution was taken because of the hundreds of people trying to secure flight tickets out of the country. "We're not saying we were in danger but, there were guards," Mrs. Milligan said. Once on the Taca Flight to San Salvador, Mrs. Duncan said she sat by a little woman who had gone to Sign Up For The Big Valentine Box Of Russell Stover Chocolates To Be Given Away FREE VALENTINE'S DAY FEBRUARY 14th The best way to remember Candies Hartford, Kentucky Beaver Dam, Kentucky Beaver Dam, Kentucky Guatamala for an operation. "She was so happy to be on the plane She told me the operation could wait," Mrs. Duncan said. Flying out over the city, Mrs. Duncan said they could see slides and cracks caused by the quakes. "Many small villages had been demolished and the survivors cofi- ducted mass burials. However, the new quake had moved the dirt and dogs were eating the dead," she said. Some villages, she said, were set afire and the fires could be seen throughout the mountains as the plane flew overhead. "When our plane landed in Miami, all of us started clapping. Some were crying, others were praying and all were thankful to God that we were on American soil again," she concluded. There will be a special radio program on WLLS called the "United Gospel Hour."

Nitroglycerin tablets are effective only when held under the tongue, not when swallowed. They take effect in one to three minutes and last up to 30 minutes. The inaccurate knowledge found by the nurses "consisted mainly of waiting too long to summon medical assistance. Each patient must be taught never to take more than three tablets per attack or wait longer than 15 minutes to seek medical help if the chest pain does not abate." Side effects commonly experienced from taking nitroglycerin include flushing, dizziness, weakness and three to five minutes in activity that made extra on the heart.
