Mrs. Bell Wins The Frozen Pig
Mrs. Arlda Bell of Philips Run was lucky winner of the frozen pig which
was on display at the county fair.
The pig was donated by the Grantsville Appliance Company to the local
Boy Scouts who received donations from those who wished to be in on the
drawing. The scouts were able to raise $78.80 in this manner.
The pig was very solidly frozen in the freezer. So far as can
be determined this is the first time a pig has been displayed and sold
by donations at any fair in the state.
The Grantsville Appliance won the blue ribbon for their commercial display
for the second year. Miss Audrey Epperly, home economist of Charleston
gave demonstrations throughout the week, of electrical appliances.
Other unusual displays included a refrigerator suspended from a ceiling
rafter with the door of the refrigerator bearing the whole weight.
