THURSDAY, SEPT. 30, 1971 AI"rENDANCE AT PAGEANT (Continued from page 1 ) ing and had the weatherman cooperated the attend- ance would have been much greater, but this was the one variable flctor over which there was no control. ATTENDANCE FIGUIES Approximately 900 persons attended the two per- formances of the pageant and some 350 persons tour- ed the newly-refurbished courthouse. The courthouse register disclosed that persons were here the two days from as far away as California and Pennsylvania, and many towns in Central Illinois; namely, Bloomington, Decatur, Lincoln, Elkhart, Taylorville, Argenta, Ore- ann, Mattoon, Chrisman, Normal, Lakewood, Mt. Auburn, Olney, Champaign, Pekin, Washington, Peoria, Carthage, Havana, Buffalo, Bethany, Sullivan, Spring- field and others. A good representation of central Illinois towns was indicated here so the publicity must have been far-reaching. POSTCARDS OF HARRY HAHN The Chamber of Commerce has had postcards printed showing Harry Hahn portraying Abraham Lincoln on' the steps of the Mount Pulaski Court- house Shrine were sold after the pageant and will be available in the stores. We hope that you will purchase them and send them to your friends and relatives and help us boost our wonderful town.

The dif- ference is wider than most years. This fact and others about soybeans for 1971 was mentioned during a field day near here Mon- day, conducted by Liv- ingston County Extension Adviser Paul Wilson. The yield range appears to hang on two factors - planting time and rainfall patterns. The meeting was held early Monday on the Ver- non Maier farm. He set out a demonstration field in cooperation with the Extension Service, to show a number of varieties in small plots. The purpose is to let farmers see plant characteristics and com- parative yields of the various beans side by side. Louis Bellatti of Mt. Pulaski, is also in a group now (Seedmakers) starting last year with 11 com- parties hiring two addi- tional professional plant breeders to develop and market private varieties. At the request of plant breeders in universities, Mr. Bellatti now has his soybeans growing in four foreign countries- Spain, Argentina, the Nether- lands and India. One college professor in Argentina said out of 52 varieties grown, Bel- latti's L-263 rated second in yield and best in per- formance. He grows over 400 varieties of Soybeans.
