lw"-- I O-TIMES-NEWS (Mt. Pulaski, Ill.) THURSDAY, MAY 20, 1971 THIRD GRADERS ,ITE ABOUT SCHOOL TR On Monday, May 3rd, the two third grades of the Mount Pulaski Consolidated Grade School went to Springfield on their annual school trip. Mrs. Tanner's pupils in room 3B each wrote an article entitled "What I Liked Best of All on Our Third Grade Trip" and five of these articles appear below: TOM McGEE I liked the State Museum. I led the lm and the animals and the rocks from the moon. The Museum had people that went back to the beginning of the people like monkeys and hairy people. The Museum had a skeleton of a horse and a man standing up. I liked the buffalo and the timber wolf and the skeleton of the man and the horse and the snakes. MICHELE BARRY On Monday 3, 1971 in May two third grades of the Mt. Pul- ask( Grade School went on their trip. We went to Springfield, IU. We went to Lincoln's home and Lincoln's Museum and also Lin- coln's Tomb and then we went to Lincoln's Park to eat our lunch. After that we went to the State Museum to the auditori- um, then we looked at the first and the second floor. We bought gifts. We didn't have tim to see the third and fourth floors. I saw pretty slides of Abe Lincoln. I saw pretty rocks. On the way home we sang songs and tried to sleep. In Lincoln's Tomb we had to be quiet. In the State Museum we rode the escalator. That was the end of our trip. JEFF EDWARDS Well, let me see, I think I liked Lincoln's Tomb! But you had to be quiet there. I learned a lot there. Then we went up on top, it was fun to look down. As you know somebody attempted to steal Lincoln's body but they didn't. The State Museum had some interesting things. The thing I liked the best there was the man and horse skeleton. The snakes were good too. At the very last we bought gifts. I bought a rabbits foot and a starfish. On the way home we tried .to sleep and before you knew it we were at the school and that night I went sound asleep. MIKE GALVIN Lincoln's Tomb was a good educational trip, We were all quiet in Lincoln's Tomb. Then we went to Lincoln's home. We had a guide. Lincoln's Tomb was beautiful. The Museum had gold and diamonds and copper. We ate and played a little bit. The Museum had muskrats and rare birds. The bus teok us to the Museum and on the way home Mark went to sleep. MARY ANN MARTIN It all started when the two third grades went on their school trip to Springfield to Lincoln's Home, Lincoln's Mu- seum, Lincoln's Tomb and the State Museum. It was a very nice trip. ! really liked the whole trip. The museum was very inter- esting and I learned a lot about Abe Lincoln and 1 think we all did. We went to the auditorium and saw slides and they were really good. ! bought gifts and we went on the escalator to see the second floor. I think Mrs. Tanner and Mrs. Lanterman had a very nice time. We were all excited that day. The most important thing was that we all had a good time. When we got home that night we were all tired. But we really had a very, very nice time. The teachers were tiredist of all. CSTNITrEASON PARK D[CT TO BE VOTED SATURDAY The Chestnut-Beason Ameri- can Legion Post 848 has a build- ing in Chestnut which is badly delapidated and not worthy of public meetings. The Chestnut- Beason Post, not having the fi- nancial means have thought it would be an excellent idea to form a park district and donate the old building and grounds now housing the American Le- gion and Boy Scouts. A petition was signed and agreed upon to bring it to a vote of the people of Aetna, Oran and part of Laenna Townships to see whether or not the Chestnut- Beason Park District should be formed. This vote will take place on May 22nd, 1971 between the hours of 12:00 till 6:00 p.m. with two polling precincts, one at the Legion building at Chestnut for those voters re- siding in Aetna and part of Laenna townships, the number two precinct will be the Beason Town Hall at Beason, Illinois for those voters residing in Oran township. Should a majority approve the Chestnut-Beason Park Dis- trict of Logan County, Illinois and with the electing-of 5 trus- tees, a new building will be con- structed to be used as a Com- munity Building. It will be for the use of various Club Organi- zations, such as, the Boy and Girl Scouts, 4-H Meetings, Com- munity gatherings, Church Groups, Youth and Adult organ- izations, individual family re- unions, a voting precinct and any other civic meetings. It has been suggested that perhaps the Trustees could ob- tain the old Union School build- ing and grounds with its' many lovely trees and too, this being about a half-way mark for both the use of Chestnut and Beason residents. Community building such as proposed have proved to be quite worthy. The Election Judges at Chest- nut, Precinct No. 1 will be Clifford Leimbach, John D. Troyer and Albert J.Buetder,Sr. The Election Judges at Beason, Precinct No. 2 will be James H. Randolph, Roland Homey and Emmagene Homey. The Candidates for Trustees are: Dorr L. Simer, John W. West, R. Thomas Lowe, Harold E. King, Dwain C. Martin, Jack Southern, Wayne Rodman and Everett P. Homey. These men have agreed to serve should they be elected. The order in which they show on the ballot is due to having each name drawn from a hat, thus the order in which they appear has no bearing on the issue. Commander Duane Shanle of the American Legion Chestnut- Beason 848 urges all residents to vote yes on this issue so that our community can have a Com- munity Center for use by every- one.
