History THE PERKINS JOURNAL, Thursday, May 17, 2012 A5 TOOLS OFTHE TERRITORY Antique Farm Equipment Shows There are over one thousand Antique Farm Equipment shows scheduled across the country this year, including fourteen in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Schedule is: Woodward M 23-25 Fletcher Lebanon Apr 13-14 Sulphur Pawnee May 4-6 Dewey Ttrttte May 18-20 Fairview Haskeil June 1-2 Enid Shawnee June 15-16 Spaulding Colbert June 15-16 Catoosa In addition to their entertainment and social value, these shows are a helpful resource for anyone needing to identify old farm tools. It is usually easy enough to determine the function of a piece of antique farm equipment, but often very difficult to determine who made it and when it was made. For example, there were hundreds of manufacturers of horse-drawn cultivators, most of whom have vanished leaving few records. The use of trademarks on farm machinery only began to be popular about the time the Perkins area was opened for settlement. Much of the equipment from Oklahoma Steam and Gas Engine Show, Pawnee, May 4 this era has no identifying marks on its castings. Any equiPment exposed to the weather has by this time also lost its labels and paint. The foregoing is why Antique Farm Equipment Shows are so valuable (and so enjoyable) to the historian. These shows usually include ample areas where exhibitors display their equipment and vendors offer trailer-loads of parts. In this jumble there is always the chance that the unidentified tool (or at least parts of it) will be found in its original colors or in the company of someone who knows its origin. And so, neighbors, if you would like to try your hand at documenting antique equipment, the Farm Museum has a horse-drawn one-row planter and a horse-drawn one-row stalk cutter which have resisted all our efforts to identify them. We would be happy to send you photographs of this equipment together with such clues as we have. Please call Bob or Norma Constien at 405 547-5057. t|, e By Charles Wall Sometimes in the winter and early spring, wild ani- mals and birds will take up residence in barns or farm implements that have been parked for the winter. To the animal it seems like an Aug 30 ideal place. It is sheltered Sep 14-16 Sep 21-22 from the outside elements, Sep 28-29 and often there will be some Oct 6 grain or feed remaining in Oct 13 the machine. There is not Oct 19-21 too much human activity, and seems to be a quiet place. The other day some of my family were unloading hay by the barn owned by Bill Scott and Karen Lester. The barn was built by their parents. A pair of owls flew out of the barn. We had seen owls in that ham before. Two of my grandsons looked into the bin of the combine that had been parked there for the winter, and saw that the owls had built a nest in there. The nest has six eggs. The boys candled the eggs with a flashlight and found that the incubation was proceeding normally, and the eggs should hatch in a few days. The eggs are small, so I don't think it will take long. The nest will need to be gently relocated if the owlets are still there at wheat harvest so we can move the combine. The owls have hatched their babies in that barn before in previous years. The parents would fly away but the babies aggressively protected themselves. Hearing about the owls reminded me of a taxider- mist stuffed owl we had in the ag classroom in 1950. It was part of the opening ceremonies of a local FFA meeting.

The founders got the idea from another rural organization, the Grange, which also had opening ceremonies. In the FFA opening cer- emonies, the vice-president calls the roll of officers , who are seated around the meeting room at different locations. Each station has a particular object that symbolizes the duties of that officer. Some of the symbols are the U. S. Flag, a picture of George Washington, and ear of corn, a small replica of a plow, a picture of the rising sun, and a replica of an owl. The Perkins Chapter had an actual stuffed owl mounted on a stand. The owl was at the station of the advisor, the agriculture teacher. Paul Evans was our advi- sor and in my mind I can still hear him answer the vice-president, "Here by the owl." The vice-president would ask, "Why by the owl?" Advisor Evans would answer, "The owl is the time honored emblem of wisdom and knowledge. Being older than the rest of you, I am asked to advise you from time to time, as the need arises. I hope that my advise will be based on true knowledge and ripened with wisdom." I remember the State FFA convention at Stillwater in April 1954. J. B. Perky was State Supervisor of Vocational Education, and would serve as Advisor at the convention. In his deep voice he would answer, "Here by the owl." After I was out of school, I went to a later State Conven- tion and Ralph Dreessen was State Supervisor. He served as Advisor at the State Con- vention and he answered, "Here by the owl." Ralph lives at Stillwater and reads this newspaper. I will close with this imagi- nary conversation between Mr. Owl and his owlet in 2012 in the combine bin. Mr. Owl: Study hard, my child, and then you will be wise and go to the FFA meeting. Owlet: I will go if I can fly in, but I don't want to be carried in. stuffed and on a stand!

The forces of House of York, whose badge was a white rose, defeated the red-rose House of Lancaster. Both families claimed the throne, and the war would stretch on for 30 years. On May 23, 1701, at London's Execution Dock, British privateer William Kidd, popularly known as Captain Kidd, is hanged for piracy and murder after capturing a boat that was loaded with gold, jewels, silk, sugar and guns.

On May 25, 1977, the communist government of China lifts its decade- old ban on the writings of William Shakespeare.

By the early 1970s China was desperate for new sources of trade, and the revolution was declared ended. (c) 2o12 King Features Synd..
