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.
