Germany's First Major Postwar
Agricultural Fair
Germany's   first  major  postwar
agricultural fair drew large crowds
of visitors, representing all four
zones, in Frankfurt recently.
Sponsored by the reestablished
German Agricultural Society, the
week-long show presented a realistic
picture of present-day German agri-
culture, its requirements and pos-
sibilities. Six hundred and fifty ex-
hibits, including entries from bizonal
and state offices and showings of
farm implements, machinery, and
livestock, were on display.
The fair was opened by Dr. James
R. Newman, director of OMG Hesse,
who paid tribute to the ingenuity and
hard work involved in preparing it.
He called the exhibit an indication of
what must still be done rather thin
an example of accomplishment.
