From the Glenwood Herald, Thursday, April 20, 1922.

The bus business in this part of Minnesota is growing fast these days. Three bus lines in which Glenwood people are interested started during the last few days and a fourth one will start soon. The P.D.Q. bus line has made changes in its two route schedule since their last announcement. The Holten Motor Transit Co. has changed its route entirely and a fourth one, the S.O.S. line has been organized and will begin operation on May 8.

The P.D.Q. bus line which started last Saturday morning will run between Willmar and Sauk Center by way of Benson, Starbuck and Glenwood.

From the Starbuck Times, Friday, April 21, 1922. 

Men can become public benefactors in more ways that in giving money. One of the older citizens of Blue Mounds Township seems to us rightfully to be called a public benefactor. We refer to our respected citizen, Mr. A. L. Brevig, who through his progressive ideas some years ago, started growing Grimms Alfalfa, and has distributed the seed from that field until last fall there was more than 12,000 pounds of this valuable seed threshed that originated from this field. This seed is now being marketed at the rather low price of 30 cents a pound and will bring to the farmers of that vicinity some $3,000 for this crop alone. Furthermore, Mr. Brevig has interested himself in the production of pine trees and distributed them to his neighbors where they stand as a living monument to the kindliness and progressiveness of this gentlemen.
