And we complain when the air-conditioner is out...

Jim Brown reported to the editor Monday that as he drove past Alf Shira's farm southeast of town, he witnessed a spectacle the like of which he had not seen since he left Kentucky. Alf was harnessed to a single shovel plow held by his boy, engaged in laying off rows for planting two or three acres of melons. The boy told him that his dad had given him no trouble except in one instance when he happened to be at the end of the row next to the road when an auto passed which frightened him so badly that he ran away with the plow, plunging and snorting and tearing up the ground in great shape.
