I am still in the Nursing home but I am glad to say somewhat improved. I don't do anything and eat like a horse. We wish you all a happy 1971.

We hear that about all the Reunions closed the year with a good history.

When you read my column it will be-after New Year's, but I'm typing this early in December and we had our first snow flurries this morning. As long as it stays flurries I won't complain but that is asking just a little too much. The wind just about takes you sailing through the air like the 'Flying Nun.' (I don't watch much television but that I have seen.)

A word of warning: if you are interested in the following, don't delay writing. Mr. Foster has really aroused some interest in his section of Ohio. Following is his request: 'A small group of us are trying to establish an organization for the preservation of early American farm equipment and culture and would like to hear from anyone in northeast Ohio or extreme northwestern Pennsylvania who would be interested in becoming a member of such an organization. We are currently thinking of trying to hold a small show in the Warren, Ohio, area sometime in late May or early June. We are in particular need of someone who could be of assistance with legal advice and services. Anyone interested in such an organization can contact Preston Foster, 3231 Randolph St., NW, Warren, Ohio 44485, or George Bunting, R. D. 4, Warren, Ohio 44481.' Take it from one who knows (and only from working on this magazine have I come to realize it) -- those deadlines roll around quicker than you can get turned around. The press want the copy so that they can get started, and then when I call, they say, 'I suppose you want this tomorrow.' Only joking, Dotty.

We have had many letters from different gas engine fans and it seems they get younger and younger. Lee Ulstad, of Madison, Minnesota, wrote, 'I came in contact with the Gas Engine Magazine at the Lake Region Pioneer Thresherman's show at Dalton, Minn. Enclosed is a check for $3.00 for a subscription.

'I am one of the younger gas-engine fans. I am only 19, but I have four old gas tractors, including a Hart Parr 18-28, a regular Farmall, and both a McCormick Deering 15-30 and 22-36. I am looking forward to my first issue.'
