RAMBLIN' with Phil It's done! I was able to pick up most of my new equipment late last week and had some time to work with it over the weekend. It's quite different than anything I have ever worked with, and the touch on the new composer for straight matter is going to take a lot of getting used to! I am hoping that it will get a lot better as I get more practice on it. We have made some minor changes in the shop, tout still have a long way .to go. We won't toe sole to get things anywhere near what we want until we are able to get rid of our big newspaper press, and I dont plan on haying that taken out until I have proven .to myself that the change to offset is going to work. With only, one more issue to get out toy the old process, I am really getting jumpy about the change, and now that I have a chance to work with the new equipment and find. o#t how different it is, I become more apprehensive about the change. However, I have been assured by those ^who have changed Mr. and Mrs. Laurence Hankey • of Graettinger are happy to announce the engagement arid approaching marriage of their daughter, Connie, .to Leon Pannkuk, son of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Pannkuk of Titonka. An April 5th wedding is being planned by the couple.

Martinek of Wesley officiated at the guest book at a linen-covered table centered with a pink candle surrounded by flowers. All was quiet as the. bride and groom approached the altar, where Bertha Nimz attended her former roommate as matron of honor, and Roy Mann served as best man. During the ceremony, Beth Qingrieh sang "I Love You Truly" before the bride was given in marriage by Mr. Carroll Wells of Blue Earth, son of Mrs. Nimz. Beth sang "O Perfect Love", and Rev. Hanson introduced Mr. and Mrs. Dale Davenport. A reception was held in the bright dining room where relatives and friends offered their congratulations.

Tie them j in a bundle, because in a few week's we'll have a truck come to Titonka to pick them up for recycling. This applies ONLY to newspapers—NO magazines.

For those who cannot bring their papers to the Center, the sponsoring organizations will try to arrange a "pick up" campaign.
