Mystery Leg Pains

On Sunday, March 22, 1953, Dale wrote, “Up early and left Muscatine about 7 a.m. for St. Paul.  Legs stopped me in Oelwein, Iowa, and Jack Owens came after me.  Stayed three hours in Mealey Hotel.  Left the Mercury at a garage in Oelwein to fix the transmission.  Admitted to Bellevue Hospital in Muscatine at 7 p.m.”  He had been transferred to St. Paul, but his legs won’t let him move there.  His leg discomfort continued periodically for years.
