COBS FROM ELMER'S


| November/December 1966


Rough and Tumble Reunion are to be congratulated on their Show this year. Museum Enclosed, Big crowds. A large variety of Steam and Gas engines as well as allied machinery. Their report will tell all.

We did not get to attend the Mid-West Shows this year and that gave us an opportunity to be at Williams Grove. This was my first visit with them. It was all very interesting. A Museum that features Carriages. Mr. Brumgard was there with his unusual display that he made himself. There was a man who played ax tunes on common steam whistles. I tried to get his name and acquaintance but he was like the end of the rain bowwhen you got there he wasn't. They had wonderful crowds over the weekend. Lots of good engines and allied machinery. A very good display of Gas engines.

Mason-Dixon had a good display and activity. Largest crowd ever. An exceedingly friendly organization.

We are having problems with the Zip Code regulations. We MUST use it from the first of the year. We think it will improve the delivery but you will find the expiration notices will be irregular until we learn more how to handle it. As a rule we will get them in when we shouldn't. The record in the office is usually correct, but we handling the Magazine are carelessly human.

The drought in our section was very severe. We lost 5 trees that had been planted from 2 to 4 years. We had a good soaking rain this week. I prayed for it since last June. The lesson is 'don't give up'.
