[b]Letter to the Editor [/b]

Tractor Challenge heatin' up

Dear Editor,

I understand the red head from Reliance is getting indigestion from biting off more than he can chew. I hope the JD vs AC contest doesn't cause an ulcer. I heard he had the Allis engine rebuilt to develop 190 H.P. on the Nebraska drawbar tests. Also, he has installed front-end assist and added weights. Still insecure he has enlisted the help of his cousins, the Woster Brothers to pull, push, and add nitrous oxide to the Allis Chalmers. To their credit, they realized the futility of such an endeavor and have wisely declined his request for help. Ok Red, take some Pepto Bismo, and let the chips fall where they may and be on Main Street of Reliance at high noon June 25th.

Respectfully yours,

Merle Aamot, owner, operator of the mighty 'B.'
