The nationally famous village, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Amos S. Youngblood of Grand Junction, Iowa, is complete in every detail and is built to scale with more than 5,000 moving parts, electrical- ly powered. The village lay-out is mounted in a specially-built bus which is designed for convenient inspection of the exhibition. The model village contains stores, home, a fire department, a jail, a barber shop, a garage, and even, a null pond. Throughout the tiny village the little people are going about their everyday affairs—the barber is shaving a customer, a wedding is being performed at the little church, there is a band concert in the park, and two fishermen are even sitting by the millpond trying their luck at catching tiny goldfish in the water. There will be no admission charge for the exhibit, but voluntary contributions will be accepted as you leave the bus. The "Village" has been exhibited in department stores, hobby Shows, ets., in 18 different states, so don't fail to see this unit on exhibit. . • It conies to Moravia after appearing last week at the Iowa State Fair.
