ANIWA, WIS.—Art Halbesleben, who has operated sawmills for
over thirty years, and his son Howard recently out of the Army have
a unique sawmill.
Father and son have devised a rig that goes into the forest under
its own power and cuts up to a million and a half board feet of lum
ber per year.
Son Howard’s experience with Diesel engines in army service
stood him in good stead. The rig he developed is equipped with a four
cylinder GM Diesel. When a farmer in the vicinity wants to build a
barn or a house he cuts his timber, calls in the Halbeslebens and a
few odd hands and his lumber is cut to size in short order.
The ri£ is 44Mi' long and 7’ 10“ wide which permits it to travel
over the W isconsin highways without special license. The GM Diesel

The engine is belt-connected to the truck transmission when

The over-all beauty of the new Plymouth for 1952 is typified by
the impressive styling of the front end. Designed for smart appearance
and brilliant performance, Plymouth has many new features con
tributing to driving ease and passenger comfort. The trim design of
the new hood molding and ornament and the hood medallion are
examples of styling refinements. The luxurious interiors, with their
perfection of color harmony and their quality fabrics, blend beauti
fully with the car’s exterior colors.
