It was sent to Leota Geigel with other pictures and she knew I would like to have this one as It is such a good picture of my father, Marvin Cady. He is the lad with the violin, first on the right. As a tot I was a "dead ringer" for him, but later bore more resemblance to my mother. The older man on the front row at the extreme left is Bill Mullica, uncle of Leota. But who the rest are, I am at a complete loss, and so is Leota. If anyone recognizes any of the others, I'd be so glad to have you write to me. I think Dad was about 18 when this picture was taken.

Lament purchased his MM670 LP gas tractor from Buscher Bros. Implement this spring, In quest of more economical tractor operation, he decided to try an LP tractor, powered by Thermogas. Lament .stated) "Although I have used the tractor just this Spring, I feel certain my opera- ing costs are going to be much less. In heavy plowing, for example, I figure it has cost me approximately 55c per hour to operate as compared to about 75c per hour with my gasoline tractor. I have been greatly impressed with the lugging power I receive from this Thermogas powered unit. Because the fuel tank is a sealed unit, I find no dirt in the fuel line or In the sediment bowl. I'm sure the motor likewise will be cleaner than a motor burning any other type fuel. I would certainly recommend Thermogas powered LP tractors 'to any farmer looking for extra economy and extra power." CHANCES ARE YOU'LL SWITCH TO A THERMOGAS POWERED TRACTOR ONE OF THESE DAYS . . .
