A pony pulling contest on Friday night and a square dance on Saturday night proved very popular with the evening crowds. The Hickory chapter, Knights of Pythias provided two well-stocked lunch counters and the Boy Scouts handled the pop situation. The ladies auxiliary conducted their usually fine bazaar and handled subscriptions for the Album.

Several school districts sent bus loads of students with teachers to tour the grounds. They were admitted free and the opportunity afforded them such instruction that could be obtained in no other way. Many of them had never seen a steam traction engine in operation.

Engines shown included, Frick, Baker, Peerless, Huber, Advance Rumely, Keck-Gonnerman, Case, Aultman & Taylor, and Scheidler. Bell City, Aultman & Taylor and Frick threshers and Ann Arbor and Case balers were featured in the demonstrations. A well-preserved horse-power baler still attracted much attention.

Officers of the association were well pleased with the reception given the exhibition and plans will be made for a similar display during the coming year.

The officers of the association are: Pres. V. M. Paul; V.Pres. C. R. Fullerton; Sec. Paul F. Crow; Treas. Evelyn M. Crow. Directors are: Earl Hamilton, John Sell, Tracy Lewton, Glenn Fullerton, Howard White, Dell Weaver, Melvin Kaste and Frank Gormley.
