The time capsule is being donated by friends of Otto Steffey, IAA board member and president for more than 20 years, in memory to this Henderson county farm leader. Money for this memorial fund came from County Farm Bureau and innumerable farmers who contributed to a memorial fund at the time of Mr. Steffey's death in 1958. Mrs. Steffey recently off- ered the money for a suitable memorial to all Farm Bureau members--past, present and the future--in her husband's name. Another highlight ]1 be th'--'* formal naming of the assembly room on the second floor near the main entrance in honor of Earl C. Smith. Mr. Smith was the sixth president of the IAA, serving as its head from 1926-1945. More than any other man, he built Farm Bureau, and plans to name this walnut-paneled room in his honor were made shortly before his death last June. The IAA dedication committee is completing arrangements with local county and state police to assure orderly traffic flow. Park- ing will be provided on the 55- acre site of the IAA building. Food will be available on the grounds. Residents of Bloomington-Nor- mal will have an opportunity to tour the building at an open house on Sept. 9- 10.

They symbolize the tremendous abundance of electric power that gives America more time for enjoyment... and more time for accomplishment. Most oJ this power comes ]rom the investor-owned electric light and power companies.
