VIVE LA FRANCE MONUMENT
WILL HE UNVEILED SUNDAY
Unusual Event Will Take Place at
Plckard Farm, Near Marion,
On tho Pickard farm near Mar
lon, next Sunday, afternoon at
2:30 p. m. there will be a service
or ceremony that will be unusual,
to say the: least. :
It will witness the unveiling ojt
the monument erected to the mem
ory of Vive La France, one of the
great cows that was developed by
the Pickard Brothers.
The story goes the rounds tkat
the name was selected for her
when she was a baby calf on ac
count of the French blood that Is
in the veins of the Pickards.
There may be French blood in
the Pickard family, but it is so
remote that it had no influence on
the naming of the baby calf. The
Pickards are American born, in
fact the two brothers were born
on the farm where they now live.
There was no special reason for
giving this name to the calf when
born, according to Ovid Pickard,
one of the brothers. He states
that when she was born he pon
dered over the matter of a name,
one that had not already been
taken, for the American Jersey
Cattle club will not permit an ani
mal to be registered under a name
already taken. He happened to
be reading the "funny paper", and
Jeff and Mutt were in France, so
the words Vive La France hap
pened to come to his mind, and
from that time on that was the
name of the calf.
It was recognized that she was
a valuable calf, but no more Value
was placed on her than on others
in the herd.
As she grew and developed it
waa seen that she was an-exceptional
producer, and finally when
officially tested she completed a
record that surpassed any other
Jersey, in the world.
Not only, did she produce more
er Jersey up to that time, but sne
produced it at an age that, was less
than a mature age, so that at one
