N. Gerber, of Algona.. On a real wet day, such as the one we chose lo visit the Gerber farm, Lloyd says you had better pick up a little speed going over the creek bridge to negotiate the lane hill. At least, he watched us slip- pincr and sliding and handed out that advice when we finally came to a stop. The Gerbers bought their present farm in the summer of 1945. Previously they had farmed for 13 years near Galbraith. Mrs. Gerber is the former Violet Simpson, a Minnesota girl. Tljere are two children: Judy, 5, and Lana, 2 both 6f them cute htlle blondes. This year, Lloyd is putting 100 acres into corn, 35 into beans and has about 65 acres of oats. He has 84 little pigs, but was somewhat disappointed in the size of litters. Lloyd's only hobby is flying, but he makes the most of that. He owns an Aircoupe cabin plane, and has a hangar and runway on his farm. He likes lo tly the Mrs. and children different places around the country, and ihe family takes an occasional trip by air to Sioux City. Lloyd has owned a plane since 1941. ^ Lloyd was looking out the window as we made the sketch above. We asked him what he was looking at, and he said, "Mud, but I guess it's better than dust at that."
