Things are tucked away at Prairie Village after one of the best summers, and one of the biggest shows in our ten years of threshing shows.

In Miniature Land we had the biggest displays of models ever exhibited. We had two model sawmills. Lindy Lindeman of Dawson, Minnesota had his miniature mill and steam engine making lots of sawdust. Wendell Turner of Oakland, Iowa had his model sawmill and model Case steamer sawing small logs and having a lot of fun. By the way, he was voted the Best of the Show for the third year.

We had lots of nice model steamers and some hot-air engines.



Garret Havalaar from Hudson, South Dakota did a lot of threshing with his model Avery thresher and his model of a 15-30 McCormick Deering. You have a beautiful model, Garret.

Emil Jacobs of Smith Center, Kansas had his fine model Case steamer threshing outfit doing a nice job of threshing. This is another very fine model.
