Local stockmen are becoming highly
enthusiastic ovt- tha coming meeting of
tha National Swine association at tha
local yards here during the next Ak-Sar-
Ben period In October. A conference
with General Manager Buckingham of tha
yards company, participated in by Pres
ident W. M. McFadden and Secretary
James J. Doty of the association last
Tuesday in the office of tha general
manager, brought some surprising pre
dictions to publlo view. The enthusiastic
president predicted that hogs valued
at an aggregate of more than a quarter
million dollars would be brought to the
National show to .be held here In tha
horse barns at the north end of the
There will probably be more than
2,000 hogs at the show," President Mc
Fadden told Buckingham. "The first
prise will probably be given to swine
valued at between 13.009 and 14,000." These
enormous figures startled local stock
men. but as mucii success nas already
been experienced In other shows. It
hoped that the predictions will also apply
to the coming show.
