No Pumpkin Just in case anyone doubted Harry F. Bruneau's tale of a home-grown 95-pound squash, he heaved it into his car and brought it to work with him. That's why there was a squash on display last week at the Stadium U.S. Post Office. Asked if he planned to eat his prize, the Howell gardener replied proudly "I could fed the whole town with it."

Out to Squash Opposition: If someone other than Homer F. Bruneau wins first place in the squash competition at the Michigan State Fair next week it will be with a vegetable weighting more than 72 pounds. That's the weight of Bruneau's entry for this year. Bruneau, who lives at 3423 Carpenter Rd., Pittsfield Township, raised a 66-pound squash in his hobby garden last year. It won second place in the 1964 State Fair. The amateur farmer raises his heavy-weight squash and other king-size vegetables by careful attention and by fertilizing with elephant, tiger, lion, and other exotic manures which he obtains from a circus.

Grows Giant Squash: Homer F. Bruneau of 3423 Carpenter Rd., Pittsfield Township, is shown here with a giant "Hundred Weight" squash measuring 62 inches in circumference and estimated to weigh 50 pounds that he grew in his home garden. Bruneau, who says he uses organic gardening methods exclusively, obtained the squash seeds that produced the giant plant from Oregon.
