ERNIE STRUCK STRUCK BY STRAY SHOT SUNDAY WHILE HUNTINfi ON OWN RANCH Lyle (speeiaD While lluntlng on his own property eight miles north of Lyle last Sunday. Oct. 27, E. H. (~rnie) Struck, age 54, was shot through the left fore. arm by a stray bullet from an unidentified rifle. The high-powered bullet en- tered one side of Struck's arm just above the wrist and emerg- ed on the other side at a short angle. Two inches of bone were shattered. In spite of torn ten- dons land injured muscles, Struck can move his fingers. In the hunting party were hls wlfe Virginia, Philip TuthlU and young sons, Andy and Gene Tut- hill The accident happened shortly after 9 a.m. in Delacourt canyon, about a mile from the Struck home on High Prairie. Mrs. Struck had taken a stand on a stump wltile her husband forg- ed not far ahead. For m11es around the oak thickets and Open ridges were swarming with hunters but no one witnessed the accident. Word of Ernie's misfortune was brat to Mrs. Struck by Andy Tuthill whose father piggy-backed his bleeding ~eigblbor out of the steep canyon. Struck had made a tourniquet of his belt, only to learn later that staunching a gunshot wound should be' done by pres- sure just ~bove the injury, not by a tourrgquet. Fortunately the belt's portion over his wadded clothing applied pressure in the right place; and - the width of the belt proved a better barrier than a narrow tour niquet of twisted cloth, according toMm. Struck. Tuthill carried Struck up to leo cling ground. By frequent rests to the car along an old loggl~g road. He was rushed to The Dalles General Hospital. There he re- calved three blood transft~sious and must remaJin until all dan-~ ger of infection is past, his wound is healed and the first cast is removed. This may take two weeks. Af- ter eventual bone grafts, he will regain the use of his left arm and hand. rl'his shooting on his own land capped the climax for Struck and many of his High Prairie neigh- bors who request the SUN to serve public no~ce that they will not permit any more hunting o~ their property.
