The Big One!
The World's Largest!
For those of you
unfamiliar with what the article depicts, it was supposed to
be the ground-breaking for the National Small Grains
Research Facility. Aberdeen was chosen to be the site for
the storage facility or "repository" that holds the small
grains germplasm collection for the nation. I don't think
anyone wanted to embarrass our home town so no one sent this
in to Johnny Carson or the Reader's Digest at the time.
But.....it was funny.
