Pastor And Mrs. Planz Honored On Anniversary Pastor and Mrs. William Planz observed the golden anniversary of their marriage and the 50th anniversary of the ordination of Pastor Planz as pastor of the Lutheran'Church on Sunday, June 8. All the children and practically all the grandchildren, together with representatives of the 12 parishes which Pastor Planz had served as pastor or interim pastor, were present at the service in Good Hope Lutheran Church, Titonka. There were flowers in tribute to the occasion from Immanuel Lutheran Church, Titonka, served by Pastor Planz from 19411950, and from the Good Hope congregation, Titonka, where the Planzs have been members since 1962. The services began at 2:00 p.m. Four grandsons were ushers. Another grandson, Timothy Rand, presided at the organ, and two granddaughters were ocoiytes. Special vocal numbers were presented by the Planz family. A poem, "The Life Story of William and Luise Planz" written by Mrs. Arthur Fett, was read by her. Four pastors participated in the service: Liturgist, Host Pastor Herbert Hanson; Lector, their son Pastor John Planzj Welcome address by their son-ia-law Pastor Howard Rand; and the sermon by their grandson, Pastor Alfred Rode. Mrs. Leonard Leeck and Miss Velida Bruns were in charge of the guest bodks. Mr. and Mrs. Walter Haack and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Rode were hosts. Mrs. Julia Stecker and Mrs. Arthur Boyken poured coffee and die Jan Circle of the ALCW, Good Hope, served lunch at the reception which followed the service. Pastor and Mrs. Plan/ were presented with hundreds of greeting cards and letters, and thei'3 were gifts including a cash donation. "This was truly a day which the Lord had made. \Vc all rejoiced and were glad therein." CONSERVE NEW INDUSTRY (continued from page 1) A check is being made as to the possibility of meeting these demands and also on the capacity of the local sewer system. Another factor in acquiring the plant will be the probability that it will greatly enhance the possibility of Titonka keeping rail service. The government requires that all of its shipments be made by rail, and with the company holding government contracts, it will be essential that rail service be maintained. The facility will require a minimum of five acres of ground, and it was stated that the noise factor will be minimal, ;uul since it is strictly a cooking and canning process, there will be no objectionable odors. It's a long shot, but if Titonka can secure the industry, it will be a tremendous boost to the community. NOTICE! I will be out of town from July 2nd to July 19th. The office will be open only in the mornings while I am gone. —DR. J. K.

ALFRED REDENIVS DISTRICT SUPERVISOR Phone 928-2263 Titonka, Iowa \iu Midwest Life Nebraska I <>f Lincoln, ~ Federated Club Float Based On Sathoff Poem The Titonka Federated Club has chosen for its Indian Day Float theme "America Begins at Home". This is based on a poem written by Craig Sathoff and published in "Our Heritage Ideals". It reads as follows: America begins at home With every child's need For guidance and direction In establishing a creed. The roots that shape America Are formed most surely where A child spends the vital years Within his parents' care. Perhaps the close-knit family Where each one has a task Does more to aid America Than anyone could ask. Responsiblities at home Build roots both firm and strong To guide our future leaders In whatever comes along. To work and strive is no disgrace, Instead it is a joy To build a great America That cannot be destroyed. This beautiful America, So blessed with liberty, Begins at home. ... its true success Depends on you and me. The club strives to depict some of the responsibilities of the home and club projects that the poem portrays. Watch for the float in the Indian Day parade on June 25.

We also serve cheese and crackers or popcorn in an informal relaxing mood in die lobby at 4:00 p. m., just before supper to provide a time to relax after the day's activities.
