Classified Real Estate:
For Sale: 160 acres Grade A Dairy Farm. 1 1/4 miles west of Whitewater, 25 miles northeast of Wichita. Write to Mrs Von Walling, Calvin, Oklahoma.
This was really funny. She finally put the farm on the market thinking they were going to stay in Oklahoma this time.When she got the Independent with the ad listing,she was reading to Von as she always did. When she read the ad, they both agreed it sounded like just the place they always wanted. So she called the paper and had the ad removed. She always laughed about that.
