Values to now ouped at Pulaski Methodist Church a great many years ago. The following article, accompanied by a picture, was a special from Clinton dur- ing last week to the Bloomington Daily Pantagraph: Using Theme in a Song Title Using the theme in a song title, "Wonderful Things In The Bible I see," the Rev. Walter Theobald, pastor of the Clinton Methodist Church, has originated a unique worship service for the children of his congregation. Each Sunday morning, after the song is finished, the minister tak- es under his arm a big pulpit Bible and walks to the center of the chancel steps where he quickly becomes the center of a dozen or more wide-eyed quiet children, seated or knealing on the steps around him. When the Book is opened on his knees he begins to read, and then, as if by magic, he draws from between its pages some ob- ject that may be directly related to the scripture he has just read. The object he uses each Sunday Is new and different from the one before, and since the service is now in its fourth year, Rev. Theo- bald is sometimes put on his i mettle to find out just the right combination of scripture and symbol. The hiding place for his story prop is a niche hollowed out in MRS. MINNIE MAYER (Continued from page 1) was forced by illness to be more or less inactive in events outside her home. She always took a vital interest in her home town, since her grandfather, David Ward Clark, was president of the Logan County Old Settlers' As- sociation when it was organized in 1873, and held that office for many years afterward. Her fath- er, after giving up farming, kept interested in agriculture and thru the years increased his land hold- ings. In 1909 he was elected mayor of the city. Her ancestors were early day settlers in this area. Decedent, together with her husband, traveled a great deal, and her ability to describe what she had seen in a vivid manner was like sharing the trip with her. She was a charter member of the Mount Pulaski Woman's Club and belonged to the Christian Church, Order of Eastern Star, Garden Club and Library Club, as long as her health would per- mit. Decedent is survived by two sons, Norman Mayer of Elmhurst, I Ill., near Chicago, and Robert W. Mayer, of Champaign, and six grandchildren. The body was removed from the hospital to the Schahl Funer- al Home in Mount Pulaski, where funeral services were held at 2 p. m. this Thursday, Jan. 26, con- ducted by the Rev. Paul Burdick, pastor of the Christian Church. Appropriate organ music was rendered by Mrs. Burdick. Mem- bers of the Eastern Star attended $400. Huston & Paolone Appcw Mt. Pulaski.

With a chuckle he relates, many times I've had parents say to me after service "We got more out of the children's sermon than from the regular sermon". The baby-sitter problem for families in this congregation must be nil, if the attendance during the children's sermon is any indication of the situation.
