CARD OF THKS Mere words cannot express the feeling that we have in our hearts for all our friends and neighbors, for their words of sympathy, the beautiful flowers and the many expressions of kindness at the time of the tragic death of our one, Dennis Scheuler. ' The Family. CHARLES F. SHIELS, shown to'the right, with Petroleum Salesman, Harold Mann, assumed the duties of Sales Manager for the Logan Farm Service Company on June 1, 1961. He was formerly Operations Manager for the St. Clair Service Compaany at Belleville, Illinois. "Chuck" was raised on a farm in Shelby county, receiving his edu- cation at Shelbyvillle, where he was active in 4-H, FFA, and other youth activities. The Shiels' are now residing in Lincoln. Leffer Box Tuesday, INDEPENDENCE DAY, was just 4th of July this year. It is the anniversary of our inde- pendence. I know our city is having a big celebration with the Sil-Tennial coming up, but SHOULD we have let this day go by so quietly? Where were the flags, with the :exception of those around the square? How many homes even own a flag? A Springfield paper mentioned this celebration, as being a thing of the past! I don't think Mount Pulaski should let it be a thing of the past. Next year, I hope we will have a real Birthday on our country's Independence Day, not just fire- !

I don't think the citizens of the city should let the Glorious Fourth be a thing of the past! I know Russian citizens given this great heritage would cherish it. I think we as a city and nation should revive the Glorious Fourth. Mrs. Herloph Sather. couL00Y--0000A DROWNING VICTIM? Drowning victims are not by a long sight just little children or showoff teenagers. And most victims are not swim- ming in the water when they fall prey to a killer that takes rough- ly 6,400 lives a year. Those frequently twisted facts are two of the misconceptions many people have about drown- ings. No one should be lulled by false facts into thinking -- over the summer months or any time in the year  that because he's in the prime of life, or just walk- ing near water, he is in no dang- er of drowning. Even farm ponds can be dangerous. Many grown persons "-- nearly HOME BUREAU JULY MEETINGS During July there are no lar planned programs in Home Bureau units.
