STEAM THRESHING RIGS AT BRIDGEPORT, NEB.


| May/June 1962


Steinauer, Nebraska

Western Nebraska steam enthusiasts turned out in force for the fourth annual old-fashioned threshing bee on the Leonard Woznick farm near here.

An oat field on Mr. Woznick's farm was turned into an arena for two ancient separators and old-time steam engines to thresh the grain out of approximately 10 loads of bundles.

Perched on top of one of the separators was Granville Hardley, 80, of Pollock, Mo., who ran the threshing rig 50 years ago.



Taking a stint at pitching bundles into the separator was Dave Martin of Kearney, Republican candidate for Fourth District Congressman. He got in a few licks before the Aultman-Taylor rig broke down.

Mr. Martin spelled George Burton of Bayard in the hayrack.
