JOHNSON •vs Our Sincerest Thanks and HOLIDAY GREETINGS from the gang at LINDE IMPLEMENT CO. Clyde, Maurine, Ole, Bill, Hank, Don, Ronnie ; Marvin and Roger M 9 ifes, it is true that our 30th year in business in Swea City was the largest. It almost seems impossible that our business has increased continously year after year, even to the faict that we have almost had growing pains to keep abreast of the (times and changes with all the new modern equipment: hydraulics, etc. No doubt this has been the busiest season that Linde Implement Co. has ever enjoyed and the employees have given their best and hope that you (our most valued customers) haven't minded too much sometimes a short wait. We appreciate your patience very much. We are carrying possibly the largest repair stock in 5 states for the equipment we sell and have many customers driving hundreds of miles to get hard to get parts. Again this year we delivered over 80 new and used combines and corn pickers. Also we are planning more service schools between now and spring in helping you to keep your machines running. If we can save you time and trips in keeping your equipment operat ing in the busy season, we feel we have both gained as we are just as interested in keeping you operating as we are in selling you your equipment. This coming year of 1968 we understand we will have several new machines and attachments to show you—so stop in often. While in Swea City visit our many stores (groceries, drug, hardware, appliance, radio and TV, barber shops, lumber, elevators, clothing, garages, gas stations, laundramat, plumbing and locker). So when you look around we really are THE BIGGEST LITTLE TOWN IN IOWA with our P ar£ prood school, swimming pool, athletic field, and five churches. Thanhs A Lot, We appreciate your business and wish you a Very, Very. Prosperous 1968. ^ ,1 i "GLEANER and NEW IDEA UNI-SYSTEM Headquarters" One of the Largest Repair Stocks in the Midwest Linde Implement Co ,*. Phon. 272-4601 SWCA CITY, IOWA
