Spectators wel- A stingy, aggressive defense and a completely unselfish of. lense gave Mt. Pulaski a 62 - 50 championship victory over Deer- Creek-Mackinaw Monday night. Dee-Mack had only one previous defeat to go against 23 wins coming into the game. The game was close through three quarters as the lead changed hands several times. The Mt. Pul- asld defensive pressure began to tell, however, as Dee-Mack began to make a few mistakes and were unable to get a good shot. Two quick buckets by Sheehan gave the Toppers a 7 point lead late in the third quarter and Dennis Wilham helped maintain that lead with several inside shots and free throws. The lead was soon twelve and with good passing and free throwing the Toppers coast- ed to the championship. The whole team played ex- cellent defense with Jeff Ayers and John Martin doing an es- pecially effective job. Mike Kelly and Larry Hahn did a good job of rebounding while Gale Shee- ban and Dennis Wilharn did the bulk of the scoring. (Continued on page 4) MRS. IRJ.IS VOLLE PRESIDDCr OF WOMAN'S CLUB The Mt.

Pulaski that the mobile glaucoma screening unit professional staffed and operated by the Illinois Society for the Prevention of Blindness will be screening, without charge, for unsuspected cases of glaucoma on March 28 from 1 to 4:30 p.m. The unit will be stationed at the Mt. Pulaski Fire Department. This project is sponsored locally by the Lions Club which is inter- ested in promoting a large turn- out for this important screening. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in Illinois and is most often found in those 35 and over. If undetected it can even- tually lead to blindness. It is es- timated that there are 90,000 cases of unsuspected glaucoma in the State. Glaucoma may ex- hibit no symptoms in the early stages according to Derrick Vail, M.D., a Director of the Illinois Society for the Prevention of Blindness. That is why it is so important for those over 35 to be checked for this disease. Glaucoma can be present without the victim suspecting that he-has an eye disease which could eventually lead to blind- ness ff not found and treated promptly. It is for this reason that the glaucoma screening unit is being brought to Mt. Pulaski, Illinois.

Let us be thankful for the fools. But for them, the rest of us could not succeed. The community takes great pride in congratulating the Mt. Pulaski Township High School 90-piece band, under the direc- tion of Claus Tanner, for winning the highest Superior rating given at the State Contest held last Saturday in Jacksonville, ILl. There were four judges and all four gave the band a number 8 which is a perfect score. The judges could find very little to comment on except to say that the band gave an almost perfect performance. The instrumental students and their directors, Claus Tanner and Richard Matta, should, indeed, be extremely proud and happy about this latest honor that has come to them. Their winning this highest Superior rating has not come to them overnight. It has taken much hard work and dedication on the part of the students and the directors and the outstanding music programs hi both the grade and high school has been a determining factor in the overall improvement of the band. The band was entered in Class .... C competition but played two Class A pieces, "Masque", which is a modern contemporary piece for bands on the college level and "March and Procession" by Baccs. They did'an almost per- fact job of sight reading and the judges commented that they had done the best sight reading of any bands they had heard so far that day. Mount Pulaski had the largest band entered in Class C compe- tition and it sent the managers of the contest scurrying for more chairs and music stands when they made their appearance. One judge asked Mr. Tanner ff he brought the whole town with him. Again, our sincerest congrat- ulations for a tremendous per- formance. Mount Pulaski proud of your accomplishments and for bringing glory and honor : to your community.
