An unusually large number were present for the potluck sup- per at 6:30 after which Band Director Lester Werntz presented the band personnel with their a- wards won in district and state contest competition this year. And, there were a lot of them. Some of .the youngsters are go- ing to be worn out carrying them around if they get many more-- and they will! Program New Feature A new and enjoyable feature of the evening was a program sponsored by the Band Boosters, thus giving the musicians an op- portunity to be entertained in- stead of having to do the enter- : taining. The Mountainaires, Mount Pu- laski's barbershop quartet-- C. A. Harvey, Roy Beckers, John Romanotto and Frank Turley m opened the program so entertain- ingly that the audience didn't seem to care whether they heard anything but good, close har- mony. The inimitiable Grace Hamm again convutse her aual- ence with an improvised skit of her own imagination with band director Werntz as her theme. Don Neaville (see picture in this issue) also picked on the MAY 10, 1951 NUMBER 41 New Street Markers Erected First 0i Week By Volunteer Workmen JEAN KINERT WED TO LEONARD GAYDOS, VIRDEN, SATURDAY Announcement has been made of the marriage of Miss Jean Kinert, daughter of Earl F• Kin- eft of Mount Pulaski, to Leon- ard R. Gaydos, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Gaydos of Virden. The wedding took place at 10 a. m. Saturday, April 28, 1951, at the Cathedral of the Immacu- late Conception in Springfield. Rev. Frank J. O'Hara officiated at the double-ring ceremony. Attendants were Miss Earline Kinert of Springfield, sister of the bride, and Ervin Gaydos of Virden, brother of the groom• .

CHESTNUT WOMAN HEADS UNIVERSITY MOTHERS GROUP Mrs. Merritt M. Williams of Chestnut, Logan County, Satur- day, May 5th, was elected presi- dent of the Illinois University ;Mother's Association at a meet- ing held at the University of Illinois• The election was held at the 31st annual Mothers Week-end, held each year the week before Mothers' Day. Approximately 100 Posts and Markers Put at Intersections. Approximately 100 street mark- er posts were placed at the in- tersections of Mount Pulaski streets Monday by volunteer workers. Several more are yet to be placed. A volunteer crew was on hand Sunday morning to get the work ,rolling, but rain put a stop to their efforts after only a few had been placed• Monday morning, however, volunteers again went to work and before the day was • ended they had erected about 100 steel shafts• Working on a speed. production plan that enabled them to place three posts every five minutes at times, they cov- ered a lot of territory with only a small number of workers. The Mount Pulaski Telephone Company used their posthole dig- ger to sink the holes; then a- long came the concrete mixer furnished by Harold Ryan, and the fire truck manned by Cha Wagner, to furnish the water as the concrete was mixed at each hole and dumped in around the steel shafts. The work of putting the street sign markers on the steel posts was done the following day and they certainly make an at-. tractive looking marker. It is also planned to place block numbers on them at an early date. Volunteers as far as we're able to learn, were: Fred Mayer, Ruwe, Herbert Suedmeier, Charl- es Hanslow, Jr., Chas. Wagner, Dale Neaville, Raymond Hahn, Fritz Lipp and Sam Bertoni.
