NEIGHBORS GOOD AROUND THE TOWN & COUNTRY Meet Jake Smith Of Butt Our Country Neighbor this week is Jake Smith, a very amiable farmer who owns 80 acres and rents another 80 acres three miles north, three east and one-fourth south of Burt. While he specializes in crop farming, he keeps a few sheep around the place as "weed clippers." During 1966, Jake had 65 acres of corn, 70 acres of beans and the balance in pasture and hay land. In the past 20 years, the Smiths have rebuilt practically everything on their place, except for the house. Before moving to their present farm 24 years ago, the Smiths farmed between Burt and Algona at a couple of iifferent places. Mr. Smith considers fishing his hobby, but doesn't seem to get much time to do it. He was born near Wellsburg, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Dowd Smith and came to Kossuth county at the age of three. He has a brother and four sisters. Mrs. Smith, who married Jake 45 years ago, is the former Ethel Householder, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Joe Householder, and is originally from Lone Rock. They met at parties in the Burt-Lone Rock area. She is a member of a mother- daughter club, a church circle, the Busy Bees and the Portland Progress Club and sewing seems to be her hobby. The Smiths have one daughter, Sheryl (Mrs. Dale Bixler), Wilmette, HI. (UDM Polaroid Flash- foto) Buscher Brothers ImpL Minneapolis Molliw - KoJIyRyan - P«p*« New Idea Farm C«mrtt«M Mww N.
