Some have^even retired their contracts in full. Yes, out of current earnings! We are proud of their success! To those Interested in farm ownership From time to time, tenant farmers and others have told us they planned to buy an Opportunity Farm as soon as they were able to do so.

CO-OPERATION OF REAL ESTATE BROKERS WELCOMED THE STORY OF BREAD may well be called The Story of Civilization Bread, the most venerable of prepared foods, has helped man, and man in turn has bettered the quality of his staff of life. YEAST is the life of bread.., and the story of yeast is the story of scientific research, uniform quality, mammoth production, modern refrigeration , . . and daily delivery to bakers in every city, town and village throughout the land . . . even by boat, by sled and by plane when other transportation is interrupted by floods and blizzards. ' Anheuser-Busch is one of America's biggest sources of baker's yeast. Year after year, we have striven with research and resources to better the methods and facilities for brewing Budweiser. To do this, a laboratory specializing in ferment* ology and nutrition was necessary, Discoveries made in the laboratory and in the plant have led to the development of products contributing to human necessity and progress. Some of these products would appear to have only a remote relationship to brewing, yet, they are the result of scientific research into- many allied fields, Endless research in making the world's leading beer has led to other products VITAMINS, B COMPLEX—For manufacturers of pharmaceutical and food products.
