Friends and neighbors of Ben Reiminger assembled at his farm on Highway 61 south of Cape Girardeau with their tractors, disked and planted 170 acres of soybeans for him. Reiminger was severely injured in a tar explosion April 8 and still confined to a hospital. On the tractors, from the left, are Reiminger's son, Charles; Louis Pobst, Harry Scherer, Bill Lenand, Frank Pobst, Theon Reiminger, the stricken man's brother, and Emil Dohogne. In the foreground are his sister, Mrs. Frank Pobst, and his mother, Mrs. Corena Reiminger. In addition to these men, tractors were provided by Don Pemberton and Louis Burger. (G.D.
