LIVESTOCK AND TRACTORS

life and fun

FILM BUFFS!

(Continued from Page 1)
Food concessions line the other
side of the midway. Foot-long hot
dogs, super tacos, stale popcorn
and warm pepsi abound.
The smell of the food mingles
with the odor of livestock and ma-
nure. The fair provides a show-
case for local farmers who proud-
ly display their animals.
BLUE, RED AND YELLOW
ribbons flutter above the heads of
prize winning beasts.
A highlight of the livestock show
was the "Name the Pony" contest.
For 13 years Mrs. Carl Weavie has
been giving away ponies at the
Saline fair. This year was no ex-
ception.
Children are asked to submit
- short essays about why they want
a pony and suggesting a name.
The winning-name this year, "Tin-
kerbell," 'was submitted by ten
year old Cindy Kerkau.
"I TOOK HER OUT for a walk
)esterday," Cindy said excitedly,.
"and she kicked me." Her enthu-

siasm undamped, however, Cindy "No matter how good they are,"
bounded away to showoff her pony he added, "That's where they all

flowed freely as Miss Saline and,
her runners up received their tro-
phies.
"I feel very privileged to be Miss
Saline" Sandy said. "Saline is
such a wonderful town." She paus-
ed to receive a congratulatory kiss
from her boyfriend and then drift-
ed off into the crowd.
While Miss Saline was being
crowned, a larger audience was
attracted to the tractor pulls. Or-
iginally a contest to see whose
plow horse could pull the heaviest
weight, the event is now between
evil smelling, smoke belching ma-
chines.
THE LARGE farm machines are
attached to a sled carrying 500 lb.
weights. The driver is given 30 sec-
onds to pull the sled 12 feet.
As a contestant motored up to
the pulling arena, the assembled
crowd buzzed with excitement.
First a few preliminary tromps
on the accelerator sent puffs of

thick black smoke shooting into
the air.
The machine roared into action,
straining against the heavy load.
The huge wheels spun rapidly and'
the nose of the machine shot sky-
ward.
In a desperate effort to increase
traction, the driver jumped wildly
about in his seat.
Finally, the sled lurched for-
ward the requisite 12 feet.
"The most important thing is
traction," a 20-year veteran of the
event observed. "You don't want
to get those back wheels spinning.'
As a chill invaded the night air,
the crowd began to thin. Families'
jammed into the front seat of a
pickup truck and couples on a
double date sharing, a car stream-?
ed out of the parking lot. Happy
and tired, fairgoers head for home
to await next year's event.
