We had a wonderful show this year; the weather was good for all three days. We got the stuff all put away, and we had a swap meet the last weekend in September. We had a record attendance this year, approximately three hundred more than ever before.

We featured John Deeres this year. We had the all wheel drive from Sycamore, Illinois this year; a lot of people looked at it-it was a real attraction. Built in 1917, it was a four cylinder tractor that drives from all three wheels. It made a good show piece. We drove it in the parade each day and put in the shed at night. Two Cylinder Club was here, with a good exhibit.

New this year was a combine by International Harvester, one of the first self-propelled they made. It was the second in a series, I think. It was a 1949 or 1950. It cut oats last year and cut oats again this year.

There were lots of other tractors there, such as Oliver, Hart Parr, International, and Silver King. You name it, we had it. We also had Allis Chalmers there and a Cletrac.

Our big steam engine is in the shed, a cross compound. It pulls from two cylinders, also a good exhibit. We invited people to come to see it. It's really worth their time, as we believe it is the only one like it in the world.
