Offer Chicago Trip Free On Tractor Deal "Buy a tractor and take a trip." This slogan keynotes an unusual campaign to sell tractors by Allis- Chalmers farm equipment division that will bring thousands of visitors by airlift to Milwaukee, the company announced today. Fenton Motor Co., A-C dealer in Fenton, will participate in the campaign. Robert Mitchell, in commenting on the campaign said, "It's just as simple as the slogan. All'you have to do is to buy a tractor and take a trip, no strings attached." There is a more detailed announcement elsewhere on this page. Purchase of a tractor during the campaign will bring a bonus of a three-day, expense-paid trip of entertainment and sightseeing to the "Land of Power" during early December. The trip will include visits to the company's plants in Milwaukee and Harvey, 111. The Milwaukee visit will include a tour of the 160-acre manufacturing complex, headquarters of the company that builds a range of products wider than any other.

In Harvey, the visit will include the company's new multi-million dollar engine manufacturing facility. A third day of entertainment and sightseeing will be spent in Chicago.
