Thanks to Charles W. Whitney, 5 Teryl Drive, Mt. Vernon, OH for sending along an interesting little book. It is entitled, A Century of Growth & Development of Major Farm Equipment Companies to 1948. It includes a lot of material from an official U.S. Government release of that year. For further information, contact Mr. Whitney.

Thanks also to Mike Flint who sent us some material on the D. T. Bohon Company sometime back. Mike can be reached at 128 S. Main St., Lexington, VA 24450.

John Knepper, 2280 Jaeger Dr., Dubuque, IA 52001 sent along some photocopies regarding the Dubuque (Iowa) Gasoline Engine Company, a rare bird indeed!

We also received a videotape from Kevin Hickey at Benton Hot Springs, Benton, CA 93512. It features a 20 HP Fairbanks-Morse Type N engine operating an old stamp mill, complete with rock crusher and other equipment. Kevin tells us that this stamp mill was set up in the 1920s. It sure was nice listening to that Fairbanks engine!



We begin with:

27/5/1 FBM Jack Junior Q. I have a Fairbanks-Morse Type H, Jack junior engine as shown on page 163 of American Gas Engines. It is missing the nameplate, so can anyone supply a copy or a clear photo of one, including the dimensions? Also placing of any decals, and the original color. This engine is also missing the crankcase splash guard, so a clear photo and dimensions of same would be appreciated. I'll be glad to hear from any owners of this engine. J. Gordon Hayes, 46A Jeffreys Road, Fendalton, Christchurch, 5, New Zealand.
