BIGGER AND BETTER
-YeS, that's
what they say about the fairs every year,
but it's not just an empty, boastful phrase;
it's a statement of solid truth.
Take that chocolate cake that won first
prize at the fair last year—it was a master
piece, but it is nothing compared to the cul
inary creation that Mrs. Jones is going to
enter this year. And this year she's going to
enter her pickles, too.
They had some pretty smooth and chunky
calves in the 4-H lineup last year, but wait
till you see the one Johnny Jones is groom
ing for this year. It'll outclass them all.
About the only competition he'll have to
worry about will be that calf that his sis
ter Susie's going to enter.
Yes, the fairs will be bigger and better
than ever this year. There'll be 20 of them
in all in Montana and four in Wyoming.
Starting the season will be the Marias fair
at Shelby, with four big days from July 26
through July 29. Windup of the season will
be the Northwest Montana fair at Kalispell
Sept. 12-14.
The big shows for Montana and Wyoming
will be the North Montana State fair at
Great Falls, Aug. 6-11; the Midland Empire
fair at Billings Aug. 13-18; the Central Wyo
ming fair at Casper, Wyo., Aug. 20-25, and
the Wyoming. State fair at Douglas, Wyo.,
Aug. 29-Sept. 1.
Both the Montana events feature big
night shows, horse races and rodeos. The
North Montana State fair will again present
the Gene Autry world championship rodeo,
and the Midland Empire fair the Leo J.
Cremer *. rodeo, billed as the largest in
America.
