Gas-Up. It was a great show. We had a lot of outside clubs join us
in the fun. I want to thank each one. Also two car clubs joined in

There was one display with four Thermoil engines; a 3 HP-6HP, 8
HP and a 9 HP. All the engines were started with a crank. The
Thermoils belong to Jim B. McMullen of Portland and Bill Wallner of
Cave Junction. A 6 HP Davenport was belted to a feed grinder. It
ran two days and used about three gallons of kerosene.
