This month's cover feature is a sharp looking Handy Andy Galloway, owned by Ellsworth Olson of Westby, Wisconsin. The photo was taken while the engine was on display at the 1976 Hesper-Mabel Steam Engine Days Show at Mabel, Minnesota.

Pictured is my Father's threshing rig that we used for several years. It was an 18-36 HI' Anil man & Taylor tractor. The separator was a 28' X 48' Advance Rumely. This photo was taken in July 1934.

From left-Charles L. Studebaker, owner of the rig; Walter Stockslager, D. Rosenhagen, L. Hutton, workman-unknown, L. Kessler, Calvin Huffman at whose place we were threshing near Lewisburg, Ohio and myself, Darrell Studebaker, age 11, at the blower; the two on the grain wagon-unknown.

There were 56 large loads of straw put on this stack.

At the 'MID-AMERICAN SHOW' at Tipton, Indiana in 1975, Bruce Atkinson of P.O. Box #65 Monrovia Indiana 46157 showed this log-saw. It has a 2-cycle engine which is mounted on two stringers supported there-to with brackets on the under side of the stringers. The large driven gear and the small pinion gear are both cast-iron. Only the letters AMI found on the machine. When I asked the question, 'What is it.' He replied, 'I wish I could tell you.' - Now can any of you readers tell him the answer?

Pictured above is my daughter, Janet Lynn, age 5, who is a real 'ole popper' nut- and myself. That is our 6 HP Famous International bought new in 1914. Engine is belted to Sears Roebuck saw mandrel. Note steel wheel wagon and wood pile behind saw.
