TRYOUT FOR NEW TRUCK: Audubon volunteer firemen got their first chance to try out a new $13,000 farm fire tank truck Saturday afternoon when fire of undetermined cause destroyed 500 bales of hay on the Alton Madsen farm east of Audubon. The new truck (left) was paid for by funds levied for farm fire protection. The chassis was built by International Harvester and the tank by Emmert Mfg. Co. of Audubon. The fire truck at the right is the pumper.
