Old country road

August 2, 1962 — Two Page County farmers will take a first- hand look at agriculture in Russia next month. Scheduled to make a U.S. Department of Agriculture sponsored good-will tour behind the Iron Curtain are Charles D. Price and Lynn Keyser.

Mr. Price is a member of the House of Delegates, president of the Farmers and Merchants National Bank of Stanley and operator of a 1,600 acre farm.

Mr. Keyser was once picked as the“outstanding young farmer” of Page County.

The pair will be joined by a score of other Virginians for the tour.
