Three-Horse Team Solves Plowing Problem: Above is shown the three-horse team of beautiful dapple grays with which Oscar Lindauer, their owner, is successfully solving this fall's serious plowing problem. Despite intermittent rains since early spring, the ground on his 40-acre farm, southeast of Chelsea, is a heavy strain on tractor and horses, both of which he is using on this job. This farm is one of the largest in the county.
