Just a few lines to let you know we in the Mid-West are still
concerned about facts. In the last issues of Gas there is a man
talking about the Maytag Gas Engines. Well here are some facts
right from the Maytag Co. (The Single cylinder engines were
manufactured from 1911 through Aug. 1937 at which time, production
was begun on a twin cylinder engine which was manufactured through
Sep. of 1952.)

Now then since the unfortunate end of production on Gas engines,
the parts have become very limited. There are still a revised list
of parts available for both the single and twin cylinder models.
All request for information can be sent to; THE MAYTAG CO., c/o Mr.
Don Ryder, Supervisor, Washer-Freezer Service, Newton, Iowa
50208.

Here are a few pictures taken at the WILL COUNTY
THRESHERMEN’S ASS’N. Steam Engine and Threshing Show, held

was great and the crowds larger than ever. They Threshed, Sawed,
