For Injured) Farmer
Dale Tarr, farmer northwest of
Ada who suffered a broken right
leg late last May isn’t worrying any
more about getting his 18 acres of
hay put up—not since last week,
that is, when the neighbors moved
in and did the whole job all in
one day.
Coy Wagner and Robert Bossman
moved into the field and cut 11 acres
in an hour and 20 minutes, then
other neighbors visited the field and
put up the 18 acres in six hours.
The group was treated to refresh
ments served by Mrs. Tarr, Mrs.
Charles Abbott, Mrs. Dale Morrison
and Mrs. William Kahl.
The incapacitated farmer viewed
the proceedings when the neighbors
backed a truck to his door and
moved him out of the house.
Those aiding Tarr were: Kenneth

have against a personal
injury damage suit? A
good lawyer might help,
but even he can’t guaran
tee that you will not have
to pay damages. Liability
insurance not only provid

ages, too. You get a real
bargain in protection for
as little as $10 a year.
