Hutchinson—or "Jiggs" as he is belter known—is thinking ahead io corn planting time. He's not looking forward so much to the corn planting itself—but right after the job is done he feels like a little iishing—so he takes off for about three days at the northern lakes. He says it's one way of making the planting job go a little faster. Mr. Hutchinson farms 340 acres northwest of Bancroft and he has been on Ihis place for six years. Formerly, he farmed southeast of Burt. Jiggs was born north of Lone Rock on the Hutchinson home place. On that farm his father, A. H. Hutchinson, is still going strong at the age of 71—feeding cattle and running the tractor. The elder Mr. Hutchinson was 22 when he went on thai farm, and is now noaring his 50th year of farming on the one place. He can be called truly a "Kossulh county pioneer." Jiggs attended St. John's school in Bancroft, where he did a lot of baseball playing, mostly catching behind the plate. Right now, he has pretty much substituted bowling for baseball, and serves on the Plantation team. He bowls around 160. Mr. and Mis. Hutchinson were married in 1940, and have four nice children: Joyce, 8',2, Albert 7' 2, whose birthday is on Valentine's Day; Jerry 6, who appears in the picture above with his Dad; and Linda, 2 next August. One of the specialties on the Hutchinson farm is cattle- feeding. Jiggs has 21 Herefords at present, and expects them to work out tine for him this- year. Mr. Hutchinson has four brothers and four sisters, all of them in Kossuth county and all on farms.
