Gettin Up Speed

Here it is time again to write my little epistle, but do you think I can pull any thoughts out of this bird brain of mine? These fall days have really drawn me to other past times. (I hope the boss doesn't read this.) At the same time I'm taking care of his business and trying to cheer him up, I sneak in a little activity. I have undertaken the chore as president of our Sunday School class; one hears that God's work must come first so there shouldn't be any complaints. Anna Mae can verify my activities -- she is one of my willing helpers.

So much of the credit for this 5 year old magazine goes to Anna Mae. She helped to get it started and spent many hours smoothing out the kinks and keeping the Iron Men Album going smoothly.

I have tried to thank everyone for helping us out during the various shows this past season but no doubt have missed some, so our thanks to you at this time. We do appreciate your help more than words can tell.

I have several requests for help and I'll pass them on. Mr. Kenneth E. Thompson, Route 3, Leavenworth, Kansas 66048, has an engine with H H on it and he would like to know the name of it.

Also, Mr. Leon Meade wanted an operator's manual for a '37 Model N Standard Fordson. If you, Mr. Meade, still require the manual, a party in England can obtain it for you. This gentleman works for a Main Ford Tractor dealer and the manual is listed in the Ford Motor Co. Publication. Mr. Meade, if you are still interested, write to Mr. M. H. Spokes, 185 Grange Road, Letch worth, Herts, England.

Don't forget to look over our book list in the center pages of this issue. The list may solve some of your gift problems.
