LLOYD S. CROYLE passed away May 26 at the age of 84. He was thresherman and sawmiller from the age of 14 when he started to help his grandfather. He also worked in the grist mill. For some years he had his own rig and sawmill. In 1938 he sold his rig and mill and sawed lumber for the Boswell Lumber Company for 30 years. He retired at 71.

For 20 years he was a member and helper at the New Centerville Farmer's and Thresherman's Jubilee.

He will be sadly missed by family and friends.

LEONARD HAUGEN passed away recently. The Haugen Family operated a 30 horse Avery threshing machine outfit for many years in Minnesota and North Dakota. Leonard became the engineer and older brother separator man. We did custom threshing for many years. We operated until the small gas outfits began to cut in on our long threshing runs and it was not profitable to operate any more.

The machine and engine stood idle for many years and was destroyed during the war and sold for junk. This was poor judgment as the 30 horse Avery was in No. 1 condition.
