WHAT-AM-I-BID, GENTLEMEN? A typical farm auction scene is shown above, with the auctioneer's hammer - in this instance, a well worn cane - about to bang against the nearest object to mark the closing of a sale. Poised with the cane is James Finnell, veteran of 36 years in farm auctioneering in Washtenaw county. The sale was under way on the Dancer farm, two miles southwest of Dexter.
