SIL.TENNIAL BELLES POSE FOR PICTURE OF ORGANIZATION The Mount Pulaski Sil-Tennial Belles which has been an active organization since 1959, found it a delightful experience in get- ting together for a group picture Saturday afternon. The group assembled on the steps of the historic old Logan County courthouse now an Abra- ham Lincoln Memorial Shrine. Ninety-seven members assembled and the Sil-Tennial spirit was still evident, as it should be, all this year of 1961. An unusual honor was the pres- ence of a 100 year old resident, Mrs. Richard T. (Clara) Harper. She was brought to the square in a wheelchair and enjoyed the brief trip very much. She is not confL']ed to a wheelchair, walking about her home, and sometimes visits her neighbors. In contrast, was the youngest Sil-Tennial BeUe, little Janice At- wood, of Decatur, who is only six mnths old. Her grandmoth- er, Mrs. FAIls C. Downing, head of the Belles, enrolled her as a Belie right after her birth. Mrs. Sadie Buckles, who ob- served her 89th birthday anni- versary on Saturday was quite thrilled when the assemblage sang "Happy Birthday" to her. LARGE AUDIENCE AT SUNDAY MOVIES A fine turnout was had at the combined movie show at the high school Sunday night.

Also shown were colored mov- ies of the Sil.Tennial taken by James Coogan, showing various events as well as the big parade.
