Mr. and Mrs. Albert Little and daughter Zola, Mr. and Mrs. Esom Smith and children, Mr. and Mrs. John S. Buller, and Miss Grace Little, of Anderson, motored to Celina, O., last Sunday. On the way there the very noticable thing was the country churches, it was very much in evidence the country churches were not being laid by like the schools were. I remember one little, white church building standing way out in the country by itself with its beautiful lawn and all along the front of the church were flowers blooming so nice. Just over in Ohio, wo came to St. Anthony, a very small place with a very large church and such a bcautiul shaded yard. And I think there must have Ivon as many as fifty machines and a jrreat number of buggies there. In all our drive of about one hundred and eighty miles, we did not see one consolidated school building.
