Portland, Ind. - The fifth annual Tri-State Gas Engine and Tractor Association's big display of antique tractors and engines will be held at the Jay County fairgrounds here Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 21, 22, 23, 1970, and it promises to exceed the record breaking event last year. The 1969 show drew visitors from 18 states and the registration cards listed a total of 333 cities and towns represented from that area.

The 1970 show will have more than 70 old tractor and steam engines as well as more than 300 gas engines. Most of these relics of the yesteryear will be running Saturday and Sunday.

A new feature of the coming show will be an Old Fiddler's Contest to be held Sat. Aug. 22 which will feature top fiddlers of the Ohio-Indiana area. This will be the night attraction on that date.

In addition to the machinery, there will be a large display of antique cars as well as antique buggies hitched to horses on Sunday, Aug. 23. Other features include a showing of more than 500 antique watches owned by O. H. (Doc) Schwanderman, RR 3 Fort Recovery, O., two complete collections of Indian relics, old-time threshing and saw mill operation, clover hulling and daily parades.
