16-TIMES-NEWS (Mt. eulaski, IlL) THURSDAY, MAY 6, 1971 Lincoln College Sponsors PMn00-g Of Abraham Lincoln The Lincoln College Board of Trustees, in cooperation with the Logan County Abraham Lincoln Heritage Foundation, are the sponsors of a historic picture depicting Abraham Lin- coln reading Colonel Robert B. Latham's letter telling him about the establishment of Lincoln University and the naming of it for President Lincoln. In the vi- sionary image, you can see the old Main Building for which the cornerstone was laid on Febru- ary 12, 1865, Mr. Lincoln's last living birthday. This building still stands today on the Lincoln College campus as one of the most historically significant buildings in the Midwest, not only for its history and beauty but more importantly the fact that for more than 106 years the College has taught the philo. sophy that the education of the heart is just as important as the education of the mind. The Cumberland Presbyterian Church established the Universi- ty in 1865 so that they might have a college in the North be- cause the Civil War had made the schools in the South unavail- able. Messrs. John D. Gillett and Robert Latham, two-of the founders of Lincoln, Illinois, the namesake city established in 1853 and named and christened by Mr. Lincoln with the juice of a watermelon, along with Mr. Wyatt donated ten acres of ground for the University campus as well as several thou- sand "dollars for the establish- ment of the University. Several years ago, the name of the school was changed to Lincoln College. Lloyd Ostendoff, internation- ally famous Abe Lincoln artist, the creator of this picture, re- ceived an honorary doctorate from the College and is a good friend of the College. Located on the campus is not only the historic old Main Build- ing but also a Merle Gauge statue of Lincoln, the Student, and the Lincoln Room with its outstanding Lincolnia collection located in the new McKinstry Library and Museum at the College. i i i FUNERAL SERVICES YOR EMIL KIIJMAN FRIDAY 30 Funeral services were held April 30, 1971 for Emil Kiliman at the Chestnut Zion Lutheran Clmfch with the Ray.

Most farmers decided to go ahead and plant their corn hoping that the rain wig come soon. Almost all of the corn is now planted and the farmers are working up their bean ground.
