Schilmoeller farm on, the edge of Algona. Ray, owner of the farm, has been on the place for 13 years — and the well-known farm has had three previous owners — Wm. Green, Peter Greiner, and John Byson. Many interesting agricultural achievements have been made on Ihis farm, from the time it was first sellled, Ray believes,'in 1908. Wm. Green sold thoroughbred boars from the place, for as high as S10.000. Peter Greiner, second owner, paid $600 an acre for it in 1918, and more recently, John Byson won a new Chevro- let in 1939 for being winner in a national corn- growing contest. At present Ray Schilmoeller has a diversified program of farming on the place — corn, oats, soy beans, alfalfa and brome. He raises Holslein cattle. Ray says it's "a good farm and a good location." Mr and Mrs Schilmoeller have four children: Lloyd, 13, Cecil, 17, Carol (Mrs Robert Kain) 21, and Cordell, 23, a pre-med student Cretehton University, Omaha. They are members of St. Cecelia's Calholic Church, and Ray is a K. of C. <»«*- Ray relaxes with^lwo hobbies — electrical wiring and wood-working.
