They team up good to- geiher, as do all ihe Menke brothers and brothers-in-law, for when the harvest is on all twelve of these farmers work together to get the crops in quick and efficiently. BOBBY MENKE is the only bachelor in ihe bunch. He runs his own custom corn sheller, for all the brothers and for other farmers. Bobby plays baseball with the Bancroft Veterans of Foreign Wars team.

All together, all the Menke brothers, with their three brothers-in-law, farm over 4,000 acres in the vicinity of Bancroft. JOHN MENKE is another one of the nine Menke brothers. He farms with the father on 480 acres straight north of Bancroft. John plays baseball with the Bancroft Lions, and turns in a good game on the diamond just as he turns in a good farming operation. ALFRED MENKE is another good farm operator, who also plays a good game of baseball—or did. Alfred played last year with ihe Bancroft Lions, but hasn't made up his mind yet about this season. Alfred is a good "Oliver" farm machinery enthusiast, having owned three Oliver tractors—and he likes 'em. farms 240 acres. He Above is pictured J. C.

ESPECIALLY OLIVER TRACTORS I 1 For 1950, Oliver again offers three outstanding new tractors: The Oliver "66"-a row crop tractor that is a snappy 2- plow unit for the small farm, and an excellent "second" tractor for large acreages. It is low in upkeep cost, steps up farm work, and hustles along chore boy tasks The Oliver "77"-dellvers a smooth, steady flow of power, and is right there for all-around farm and crop tasks t comes in a choice of two smooth 6 cylinder engines Ifs a row crop model. The Oliver "88"-is a husky tractor that can handle a wide variety of jobs. It has six forward speeds and two in reverse, a feature that is exclusive. Halso has double clutch, so that power takeoff can be used to run combine, corn picker, forage harvester and other machinery without auxiliary power. , «,. w » Purchased a new Oliver "88 f ' last year. It is just about all we could ask for in a tractor. There is lots of power and she steers ni'ghiy; easy during plow- ir >9- .T 1 }* biggest features, we think, are ihe constant- running power takeoff, run- ning separately from main clutch, and the gear set-up. We can us* it to power the combine, corn picker, and other implements. As for Ihe gear set-up, there are MX gears forward and two in reverse. That feature alone is a mighty valuable one io have in a tractor. is economical on taking about 2'/i an hour in heavy Our "88" fuel, too, gallons going.
