WHO WILL TAKE OVER WHEN WE OLD FOLKS ARE GONE? The answer is not so elusive. Young men like Dick Kruse (left), Duane Nobbs (right), and the overseer Dennis Nobbs will. At the Badger Show, Baraboo, Wisconsin 1978, these boys, with little adult help brought the silo to the show, painted it and cut ensilage as their exhibit. There's little more need be said.

This picture was taken in northern Minnesota in 1915. The engine was a 32-110 HP Reeves. Separator was a 40-62 Minneapolis. The men in the picture from front to back are: Raymond Hertel, Uncle Fritz Uhll and Fred Bliler. Seated on drive wheel was my father, Chas. C. Brown, owner of the machine. My uncle Mike Brown is sitting on tender. Standing on the separator wheel is L. M. Davey, separator man.

20 HP Sawyer Massey engine owned and driven by Ben Scaman of Dresden, Ontario. This engine was built in 1920. Engine was featured at the 21st Western Ontario Steam Threshers Show (story on page 14).
