This time the Pathfinder was actually stalled. In crossing a stream, swollen by a Kansas cloudburst, till it submerged the road, E-M-F "30" dropped into a hole where a culvert had been washed away. You'll notice only the top of the front wheel is visible. Magneto was submerged and current "shorted." As soon as she was pulled out, however, the ignition system worked as well as ever and the party got safely to the next town - Williston, Kansas, before nightfall. It was the only time a cylinder missed fire on the entire trip of 2650 miles - and all four quit in a bunch! As may be imagined.
