THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2014 .... Pae 7 State hwyers rmgnized for pro bono services indude one Park River lawyer BISMARCK, N.D. -- The State Bar Association of North Dakota has recognized 13 mem- bers as Justice for All lawyers for each contributing at least 50 hours of pro bono services in 2013. The lawyers were honored at the SBAND annual meeting in June as part of the association's Justice for All program, which en- courages lawyers to donate legal services. The lawyers and their hours of pro bono legal services are Fran- nie Schlossman, Fargo, 303 hours; Kent Morrow, Bismarck, 225 hours; Robert Keogh, Dickinson, 162 hours; Tasha Gahner, Fargo, 161 hours; Alexander Kelsch, Mandan, 140 hours; Tracy Laaveg, Park River, 128 hours; Kristin Overboe, Fargo, 124 hours; Dar- la Schuman, Grand Forks, 116 hours; Alisha Ankers, Fargo, 114 hours; Stacy Moldenhauer, Bis- marck, 90 hours; Dennis Ander- son, Grand Forks, 60 hours; Kristin Redmann, Bismarck, 53 hours, and Elizabeth Fischer, East Grand Forks, 51 hours. These donated hours include le- gal services provided to low-in- come individuals at no fee and without expectation of a fee. Pro bono is a long-held responsibility of the legal profession. Under the profession's ethics rules, lawyers should provide public interest le- gal services without fee or at a sub- stantial reduced fee. "We are thrilled and thankful for the continued commitment to pro bono of many of our North Dakota lawyers, says," Jack Mc- Donald, Bismarck, president of SBAND. "There are many ways in which North Dakota lawyers are providing pro bono services, re- gardless of the type of legal work they do. This program is a way to recognize lawyers for the good work they do every day."

Pioneer Machin, Showm P00ina C00un ery ty to feature the Massey Companythis Sept. 6-7 CAVALIER, N.D. -- The Massey Compa- ny will be featured at the 21 st Annual Pioneer Machinery Show on Sept. 6-7 at the Pembina County Historical Museum Grounds, Cavalier. The Massey Company has a long history with origins in Newcastle, Ontario, with David Massey in 1847. The company as- sembled some of the first mechanical thresh- ers with parts from the US then designing and manufacturing their own. In 1891 Massey merged with the A. Harris, Son & Co. Ltd. to become Massey-Harris Co. and became the largest agricultural equipment maker in the British Empire. In the 1930s Massey-Harris introduced the first self-pro- pelled combine harvester and later produced one of the world's first four-wheel drive trac- tors. The company merged with the Ferguson Company in 1953 to become Massey-Harris- Ferguson, before finally taking on its current name in 1958. But the company soon began to decline financially. Facing increasing inter- national competition and an agricultural sec- tor diminishing in importance, the firm began to struggle. An interesting story regarding the Massey- Harris Company deals with the original Har- vest Brigade. During World War II many farmers and harvest machines were called into service, but the country was need of the har- vest to be completed through the duration of the war. Steel and other natural resources were in short supply and the allocation of resources for machines in development was nearly un- heard of. The Massey-Harris #21 combine was ready for mass introduction. And the company set out to convince the US Government's War Pro- duction Board that the #21 could produce more bushels using a smaller amount of raw mate- rials. Then Joe Tucker, sales manager of the Massey-Harris US division, developed the Massey-Harris Harvest Brigade which helped convince the War production Board to allocate the necessary resources including steel to produce 500 of the #21. The request was grant- ed. The self-propelled #21 combine was said to be able to save half a million bushels alone through its optimized harvesting technology. Competitions machinery show CAVALIER, N.D. -- It is time to begin preparing to participate in the 21 st Annual Pi- oneer Machinery Show on Sept. 6-7 when the Massey Company will be featured. One way to participate is to compete in the 4rd Annual Photo Contest and in the 2nd An- nual Bread Baking Contest. Look at the farming industry through the lens of a camera and snap that perfect shot. Images of any farm related subjects taken by youth under 18 or by adults can be entered at the Pembina County Historical Museum between August 20 and September 2. Images must be at least 5x7, printed on photo paper, and unframed but may be matted. Photos will be judged on composition, uniqueness, and the story the photo tells. Winning entries become the property of Pembina County Historical Society; other en- tries can be picked up or returned with a self- addressed and stamped envelope. Up to 4 im- ages can be entered. The farm related photos will be on display following judging during the Show on Sat- urday afternoon and Sunday until noon for the public to vote for People's Choice. Win- ners in both divisions of the $50 first place, $25 runner-up, and $25 overall people's choice will be announced during Sunday's 1:00 parade. Bread bakers are encouraged to enter a loaf of fresh baked bread or buns for the bread The implementation and utilization of the #21 combine also made it possible to move trac- tors on to do other necessary harvest and farm work. This alone saved a half million gallons of fuel. The combines were then sold to custom combine operators who would guarantee to har- vest a minimum of 2000 acres with each ma- chine. This not only saved on natural resources and reduced the loss of harvested goods through optimized harvesting techniques; it also assisted with the limited workforce that was available as well. Since it took less machinery to complete the harvest, less manpower was re- quired as well. The first Brigade was in 1944. LEGAL N00OTICES THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2014 baking contest. Entries of wheat bread, whole wheat bread, specialty bread, white buns, and whole wheat buns must be entered at the Mu- seum by 11:00 on Saturday, September 6 for judging. The entire loaf of bread must be en- tered; four buns on a paper plate make one entry. Adult and youth under 18 can enter all cat- egories to compete for the cash prizes of $50 first place for $25 second place in the bread and in the bun divisions. Winners will be an- nounced during the parade. Saturday's afternoon competition oppor- tunities include the spark plug contest, the in- ner tube toss, and the cow chip throw con- test. These events are open to all ages. Youth from around the state compete in the North Dakota State Pedal Pull Saturday af- ternoon where the competition is top notch. Then the 2015 Pedal Pull season beings Sun- day afternoon with the first of the local com- petitions to prepare for the 2015 State Con- test. There will be a time for adults to try the pedal pull tractors, too.

Entries need to be registered on the parade grounds by 11:00 A.M.to quali- fy for judging; plaques will be awarded dur- ing the parade.

Stop at the Museum to see this combine and share any history you may have about any part of the Massey Company. All Massey equipment is welcome to be dis- played at the Machinery Show and to be a part of Sunday parade. Contact the Museum at 701- 265-4941 or pchsm@polarcomm.com with questions or information.
