The weatherman again cooperated with us, although rains all around us cut the attendance some on Sunday.

Besides the engines we have had other years, my George White 25 HP rear-mount was new at this third annual show. The engine shown on page 28 of the January-February 1962 'ALBUM 'is a George White just like mine, except mine has the original side tank and ladder on the left side. These are Canadian engines, with factories at London, Ontario and Brandon, Manitoba. My engine was built August 4, 1913, this company evidently stamped the date built instead of giving the engine a serial number.

Also new at this year's show was an early Waterloo Boy tractor, owned by George Anderson, the John Deere dealer here. George had an assist from Ted Worrall of Loma, Montana in picking up some missing parts to complete the tractor. It has a nice fresh paint job. The George White is also painted and striped.

John Anderson of Miles City, Montana, showed one of his hot-air engines. This attracted a lot of attention and ' 'Johnnie' has an entertaining line of 'hot air' of his own. I hope we can get him back next year.
