G. Wysor of Richmond, General Manager. Mr. Wysor states received jour letter the other day. for it gave me an aiv-wcr to mj cures MURRAY D. LINCOLN Secretary Ohio Stale Farm Suftau that 2000 farmers, delegates from advisory boards and directors of affiliated co-operatives are expected to come together at thus meeting in thc interest of this rapidly movement among farmers. growing The meeting will be presided over by Senator D. G. Harry, President, and Governor Harry W. Nice will welcome the assemblage. Mr. Wysor will give the annual report and show a volume of over 10% million dollars in business during the past year. The financial statement will be made by 0. E. Zacharias, Jr., of Richmond, Comptroller, and Dr. T. K. Wolfe of Richmond, Director of Distribution, will talk on "Farmers in Business." Thc principal address will be made by Murray D. Lincoln, Secretary of the Ohio State Farm Bureau Federation. Mr. Lincoln is outstanding in co-operative circles, not only because of his good work in the consumer co-operative movement in this country, but also because he has won national recognition by the establishment of cooperative insurance business. Out of his effort to help the farmer attain financial independence have come thc formation of cooperative automobile and fire insurance companies among thc largest in the United States. He has also established a bureau crcditj corporation through which Ohio farmere can borrow at a low rate of interest, and controls a life insurance company. H. E. Babcock, of the Co-operative Grange League Federation, Ithaca, New York, will also speak. The program will include ratification and confirmation of the election of the three nawly elected directors: H. H. Nuttle of Denton, Maryland, President of the State Farm Bureau of Maryland; Edwin Warfield, Jr., of Woodbine, Maryland, and H. Silversten of Autreyville, North Carolina. Certain matters of policy will be discussed and voted on by the directors who voice the will of the organization's 100,000 patron members. The afternoon promises an interesting outing when the group will go on an inspection tour of the organization's own feed mills, its fertilizer plant, the largest ever owned by n farmer's co-operative, and its seed plant, all located in thc city of Baltimore. The part about your little dog "Mick was amusing. I rend it to Mary and we had a big laugh. Tell your mother I'd bu delighted to come the week-end after I go back to school. As I c-ct heie and write to you, I'm gazing down Mt. Seall, which I named myself very appropriately. The leaves have tuined and they're diifting down the mountain. Mavy and I have n very amusing hobby of nicknaming all the people up here. "Old Rip Van," the part owner of Sleepy Hollow Inn (this is the real name of the inn which is printed in large letters over the entrance gate) is the name we gave Mr. Monroy because he reminds u» of Rip Van Winkle. He has a long flowing beard, little blue eyes that always. give one the impression of being half asleep and about the skinniest old hound dog you ever saw. Now "Old Know all" cits knitting across the veiancla from Mary and me, and is a perfect picture of an "old Maid" always buried in a book or vigorously knitting but who manages, in some way to see all and know all. Mother Hubbard, the keeper of the inn, is the type of woman any one would love. She is stout arid Irish. She say,, her main trouble at the inn is finding enough in her cupboard to feed the whole gang here. The other two joung ladies on the porch arc typical giggling school girls that never have any worries and spend half their time in day-dreaming (that's Mary and I.) The inn b a large, lovely old brown building that seems sprawled on top of this mountain. The interior is very quaint and reminds me of the inside of a log cabin. The scenery around here is very beautiful, but because I'm not very good at writing descriptions I'll wait and tell you about it. Hoping to see you very soon, I am Yours with love, JEN ANN. Denton, Maryland October 1, 1938 Dear Mr. Foxx, During my years as a baseball fan I have always desired to write you a letter. I have admired your skill as a ballplayer and your good sportsmanship on the field. Last year I noticed jour batting average was none too impressive and your hitting range was short. I did not know the cause of this and it had me guessing. During the winter months I carefully read all the baseball news concerning your let down of the past tion. Early in the spring I saw that you had gone to spring training camp i:i Florida a bit early the forthcoming today's paper I see to piepare for beasc.n. As I read that you have given results and that jou won the "American League Batting Crown" and thus are runner-up in many other department!-. I sincerely wish you many more successful seasons. An admiring fan, BURNLEY WYATT.
