Gettin' Up Speed With Irene

| July/August 1969

It's Reunion time again and I get carried away with packing magazines, books, jewelry and subscription blanks to send out for the shows. Can't believe it is time to write my two cents worth for the July-August issue of GEM. Trouble is I can't think of any news.

Will pass along some inquiries that came in the mail. Mrs. Robert Hesse, 6060 East Joy Road, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48105, would like to know if a person can purchase a wrought iron design of a Gas Engine. She can find old cars, horses and fire engines but not gas engines. If any one has this information you can write her or our office.

Also, Mr. Neil R. Erickson, 2113 E. Wheeler Road, Midland, Michigan 48640, would like some information on operating International tractor 15-30 (W-30) 10-20 & WK-40. Does anyone have an owners (operators) manual he could buy or borrow for information.

Mr. Stanley Wiersma, 677 22nd Ave. N.W. New Brighton, Minnesota 55112, is in the Process of restoring a Waterloo 2 H.C. Engine No. 155331 and is missing the coil, 'he presumes that is what it uses', the starting crank is also gone. If anyone has any information or just a picture it would be helpful.

Since school is out I should have three little helpers at home, and this being the first day of Vacation I expect a big surprise when I go home and not the surprise of a bowl of pretzels in the middle of the room and three teenagers watching TV. They usually scatter and can do the fastest disappearing act you would want to see if they think I have a chore for them.
