FSCC auction July 2018

Boxing fans watched on TV the title fight broadcast live from Malaysia, thousands trooped to the Luneta for a religious gathering, and those bitten by the stamp bug went to the auction sale of the Filipinas Stamp Collectors' Club held at Manila this afternoon.
Got a block of four official Commonwealth stamps with a variety on the top left stamp: Lowercase H in WEALTH.
A few new faces were among the 30 or so participating bidders who fought for some 500 philatelic and nonphilatelic lots. There was a brownout, so the auctioneer was microphone-less. Nevertheless he was heard by all!

Farmers Convention slogan

Yes, sir, there was a Farmers Club of the Philippines (don't know if it still exists).
The slogan cancel on this postal card was used from April 16 to May 7, 1955 in Manila, so it's likely that's where the 1st National Convention of the Farmers of the Philippines was held.
Illustrated is a farmer ploughing the field with a carabao.
