| May/June 1981

PAUL BLOUGH, 86, of Wis Dells, Wisconsin, passed away December 28, 1980 in Louisiana while vacationing in the South for the winter. He was a life member of the Badger Steam and Gas Engine Club along with other clubs in Wisconsin. He was very active in the Central States Threshermen's Reunion, Pontiac, Illinois, in the late 50s. He exhibited his many varied interests from old radios, homemade dynamos to gas engine driven generators and magnets. He spent his early life in and around Bloomington. Paul was a retired mechanic. He will be missed at the many shows.

CARL MORCHOUSE, Center-burg, Ohio, passed away February 14, 1981, in Mercy Hospital, Mt. Vernon, Ohio. He was 79. He owned and operated a sawmill in Knox County for 50 years. He was also an old-time thresherman. He owned two Baker steam engines. One 21-75 HP and one 23-90 HP. He also had a 25-50 Baker tractor. He always referred to this 21-75 steam engine as the 'little engine with the big pull.' Knowing Carl the way I did, I think he enjoyed every minute of life. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
