THE OZARKS STEAM ENGINE ASSOCIATION

STEAM-O-RAMA 11th ANNUAL REUNION SEPTEMBER 14, 15, 16, & 17 1972 SPRINGFIELD, MO.


| May/June 1973


7197 Mississippi Street, Merrillville, Indiana 46410.

Myrl Hix of Pittsburg, Kansas had extolled the wonders of the Ozark Steam-O-Rama to me on several occasions. Since Mr. Hix is a recognized authority on steam engines and gas engines as well as a collector and builder of steam and hot air engine models, I felt compelled to make this show a must on my show list.

Leaving Merrillville, Indiana on Friday afternoon and spending the night in Alton, Illinois, we arrived on the show grounds at 1:30 P. M. on Saturday, after an enjoyable drive through the Ozarks of Missouri.

Our arrival was made pleasant by the fine people in attendance at the gate.

The first thing we saw as we entered the grounds was Myrl Hix in his familiar blue bus-camper with his huge array of steam engines under a canopy beside the bus.

Mr. Hix told me that shortly after he had set up his display and started to operate the model steam engines on compressed air, as is his practice, the air compressor he used to supply the air, developed engine trouble. Mr. Hix and Mr. Coy Marriott localized the fault in the magneto of the engine.
