PUBLISHER’S LETTER

By Staff

Once again, our July issue is the largest of the year, and as
usual, it’s a real challenge to get it out in the mail to you!
There are lots of auctions going on in addition to all of the shows
for you to attend.

Our Reflections column is unusually long this month, with lots
of good questions and answers. There is more model making material
in this issue, as well, reflecting a increased interest in this
aspect of engine creation and collecting. We had another story
about the recent Model Making Expo held in Ann Arbor in April, but
we had to hold this and our In Memoriam column for next time.

At the present time, we have lots of stories in our files, and
we hope to bring you even more next month. I thought I would use
this space to share a picture sent in by Morris Blomgren of
Blomgren Road, R1, Siren, Wisconsin 54872. The picture is of a 1917
Gehl one wheel tractor, of which Mr. Blomgren says only two were
made. According to C. H. Wendel’s Encyclopedia of American Farm
Tractors, the Gehl people didn’t stay in the tractor business
for long.

By the time you receive this issue, spring swap meets and get
togethers will be over, and you’ll be attending the large
annual shows that take place each summer. Let’s hope that
you’ll experience some cool weather, and that these 90 degree
days we’re having in April won’t be a daily occurrence!
