R. R. 1, Eldorado, Illinois

This is the second year for this show and one of the liveliest shows going. Of the equipment there were 17 engines, 3 separators, 8 tractors, sawmill, 2 fans, 2 brakes, veneering machine and the teeter board. There was 30 acres of wheat threshed from flail to combine at intervals throughout the 5 days of the show along with the plowing and the fans and brakes were kept busy.

Parade of engines and equipment with the balancing on the teeter board by Clem Baudison was held each evening before the large grandstand. Tractor pulling contest was held along with the steam show all attracting more than 30,000 people. So, all good things come to an end in this world and am looking forward to another one next year.
