Virgil Wynd was the first secretary from 1936 to 1941, when Walter Schaf- er took over and has done a wo'fi- derful job. Dale Neaville is the 1961-62 president as of July 1.

J -..SIL.TENNIAL EDITION (Times.News, ML  111) AY, JULY 15, 1961 CENTENNIAL YEAR MARKED ROTARY CLUB BEING OI00GANZIED 300 Rotarians And Arms Present For -O Took Founding Program 40h00 To St. (Nov. 19, 1936) Louis Ikdl Game , (Aug. 7, 1947) Boys from Mount Pulaski were gue of the Mount Pulaski Re- taw Club and other business men on the Emil Verban Night special whJch pulled out of Lincoln last Friday afternoon for one of the highlights in their young lives. The Verban Night observance, in which Emil Verban, Logan !county's star second baseman with the Philadelphia Nationals, was sponsored by the Rotary clubs of Mount Pulaski, Lincoln and Atlanta. Each man making the trip on the special train was required to take a boy, and could take an additional boy for $5.00. The fact that 22 men from Mount Pulaski made the trip, and twice that many boys, is ample evi. dence of the popularity of the venture. Many of the extra boys were sent by Rotarians and oth- ers who could not make the trip. Rotary Sponsors Five World-Known Speakers Here (Oct. 13, 1938) A member of the British Parli- ament, a woman journalist from Berlin, Germany, a former pres- ident of Columbian College of British Columbian College of British Columbia, a world-travel- er from Upper Montclair, N. J., and a lecturer on International Affairs from Stoke-on Trent, Eng- land, are five outstanding indi- viduals in the world affairs of today who will appear on Fri- day evenings at the high school, starting October 21st. These world - known figures are being brought to Mount Pu- laski thru the sponsorship of the local Rotary Club with the coop- eration of Rotary International which is sharing part of the bur- den of the cost in securing the speakers of this calibre in order that they can be brought to smaller communities. The speakers will present facts that have to do with world issu- es, bringing to thoughtful cit- izens a knowledge of what is in- volvedin International problems. When those attending the meet- ings of the iflstitute realize that they are securing factual knowl- edge instead of propaganda, their viewpoint towards a better International understanding may be considerably altered. The speakers are as follows:- Alfred Edwards, M. P. London, author and lecturer; Eric I. Grimwade, Stoke-on-Trent, Eng- land, Journalist in Spanish Civil War; Dr. Wilford J. Spirrell, Vic- toria, B.C., Canada, President of Columbian College; Mrs. Margar- et H. Kaiser, Berlin, Germany, Journalist. LATE PRES.
