So it is with Farmer Citys Big Soy Cake Day to be held on Thursday, Sept. 25, right on Main street. Soy Cake Day is to take the place of the annual Farmers-Mer-chants Day, which for the past two years has proven so successful. Two years ago the local merchants entertained the farmers of this community to a big bar-b-que-din-ner and entertainment at the high school. Last year the merchants provided a W.L.S.

show free to the farmers at the fairgrounds. This year the farmers and their families willvbe entertained to a big Soy Cake dinner with bacon, syrup, butter and coffee and will be served right on Main street. There will also be plenty of free entertainment and a big street dance to the music of Carl Bryers band. Serving will start promptly at 5:00 oclock that evening and there will be tons of food which means that everyone will have all they can eat and drink. Arrangements are being made for more than 500 pounds of bacon to add spice to the Soy Cakes.

The idea is being sponsored by the Boosters club and paid for by members of this association, who want it to be known that everything will be free and open to every man, woman and child in this trading area.
