Estate Fund
The $50,000 from the Willis
Esbenshade Estate Fund that
the Farm and Home Foundation
has been waiting for was releas
ed Friday, according to Attor
ney William H. Mann, 53 North
Duke Street.
In making the announcement
of the decision handed down by
Judge John L. Bowman, Mann
said the evidence was over
whelmingly in favor of the
Foundation. The fact that the
Foundation was a charitable one
and Esbenshade had made ar
rangements with Mayor Thomas
Monaghan to meet his promises'
to match the Foundation in two
$25,000 gifts were the main rea
sons the funds were released to
the Foundation, - ' -
If there is no descent within
the next 20 days the Foundation
should soon have the money
shortly thereafter.

50 percent of U S. dairy farmers
(and U S dairy farmers, by the
way, have 95 percent of the to
tal capital investment in the na
tion’s dairy industry) see fit to
invest any of their gross income
in advertising, merchandizing,
research and development, or in
consumer education activities.

men expect to compete against

ed through product and market
research?” he asked.
