Four of the many Bown-Corby youngsters involved in a scene from “The Animal Fair,” this year’s May Fete production are pictured on the front page. The old raccoon, by the light of the moon, who combed her auburn hair, is Nancy Bennett. The little skunk in the trunk is Carol Steinel, and the monkey about to fall is Tommy Britain. The elephant who sneezed and fell on his knees is Richard Britain.

Plans are being made to ring all the school and church bells on July 4 this year. All across the country, the bells will ring. In Marion, the hour will be high noon. It seems appropriate that these bells of freedom will ring atop our religious and educational institutions.

LeRoy Hoffman, salesman and service manager at Marion Hardware is this week taking an all-expense paid trip to Louisville, Kentucky. He will see the trial runs of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs and will tour the famous General Electric Appliance Park at Louisville.

One of the more modern installations at Marion High School is the “language laboratory.” This is the latest type equipment for teaching foreign languages and is proving valuable as well as popular. Mrs. Annie Loewen is the language instructor. She is pictured with a group of students as they study German.
