HE'S GOING TO GET IT! The Audubon Future Farmers of America chapter Tuesday night raised nearly $800 in a "slave auction" after a public roast pig supper. Each FFA member was auctioned off to the highest bidder, pledged to work 8 hours for the successful bidder. The final "slave" sold — and he brought the highest price — was the chapter adviser, Frank Albertsen. Officers of the chapter had formed a conspiracy, polled their funds and bought Albertsen for $3.60 per hour. The buyers hadn't decided what chore to assign their instructor, but the photo indicates one possibility.
