Proving that tractors can be more than just a machine to sow corn and wheat, the Interstate Truck and Tractor Pullers Inc. will converge on the Carroll County 4-H/FFA Fair Friday night to strut their stuff. Or, rather, pull their stuff. The big tractors, weighing 7,500 pounds or more, will be strained to see which one can pull a weighted sled the farthest along a 300-foot track, said Helen McKenzie, whose husband, Fred, participates in large tractor pulls in the Mid-Atlantic area. "The sled itself weighs 35,000 pounds," Helen McKenzie said.

The high-jumping mules, racing pigs and hefty draft horses return to Maryland's largest free fair tomorrow. The weeklong event features spirited auctions of livestock and edible art, and whimsical contests testing skills such as pie-eating, watermelon-seed-spitting and milk-mustache-making. Also, a petting zoo, a welding competition and a roving robot make their debuts this year. But the highlight of the 107th Carroll County 4-H/FFA Fair in Westminster is the new agriculture arena, a $5.5 million building with a show ring and enough room to show 1,000 animals to several hundred spectators.
