Considering the corn-picking conditions of last fall and this winter, what more sensible way to pick corn could you find than that pictured above? Walter M. Wharton of 1601 So. 7th St., Oskaloosa had this picture taken on Dec. 27 after he had placed a wagon box on the sleigh runners he has had for 25 years and hitched up Dick and Charlie, the chestnut sorrel team owned by Robey Boggess. Wharton's hand-picked eight acres of corn yielded 700 bushels.

This 50-year-old engine climbs steep ramp at Western Development Museum in Saskatoon. The veteran machine has threshed over a million bushels of grain and has broken 10,000 acres of prairie, and is still able to defy gravity. It's one of many pioneers you will see at Pion-Era. ( J.I. Case engine)
