Glenn Lindell, pastor of the Mission Covenant Church, addressed the Galesburg Kiwanis Club meeting Tuesday noon at Hotel Custer on behalf of the Galesburg Community Chest for which the annual financial campaign is about, to open. With eleven agencies as beneficiaries of the Galesburg Community Chest this year, Dr. Walton enumerated the agencies, their purposes and their needs. He indicated the amounts allotted to each in order to enable each to function through the year. The Rev. Mr. Lindell discussed the Community Chest idea. He held that in larger cities people are becoming somewhat calloused to the needs of the unfortunate Smaller cities are more likely to be sensitive to human needs and he cited Galesburg as an "in- between" in size, exhibiting some of the attributes of both large and small communities. As a citizen and minister the Rev. Mr. Lindell expressed desire for strengthening the better influences of the community, to put social welfare ahead of personal gain and to combat the indifference, the divisive factors and materialism sometimes apparent in this city. In advocating contributing to the Community Chest, Rev. Mr. Lindell pointed to the opportunity for all, Protestant, Jew and Catholic, to stand together for the real values and good things, and lo aid in the building of that community consciousness and pride which Galesburg needs to develop. Major Bert Curtiss, commandant of the Galesburg Salvation Army Corps, presided. Guests were Maurice J. Eldridgc, Rock Island, and Cecil Peterson and Robert Griffith, both of Galesburg.

Rotitrians Hear Of Fellowship Student's Work An interesting accoufit of ner work as Rotary Fellowship studertt in the British Isles, was told to the Galesburg Rotary Club session Thursday noon at the Galesburg club by Mrs. Marjorle Bruce Rett- nion of Jacksonville, Mrs. ««"- nion Indicated that her experiences with the British people in the past year as a student were very pleasing with the people extremely cordial towards her and her husbano. Mrs. Rennion was a student at the University of London and she and Mr. Rennion also made trips to various parts of England, Wales and Scotland. Their visit* with members and families of Rolarlans were especially remembered since the Rcnnions experienced the most cordial goodwill from them, an exemplification of the Rotary Fellowship Foundation's purpose to promote good will throughout the word. Mrs. Rennion's fellowship fund had been provided by the local district of Rotary International. The British people were found to have many things in common with Americans, yet adjustments to the British mode of living had to be made. There were scarci lies of many items such as meats and eggs, with one egg a week per person still on the ration schedule. Central heating plants were also found to be scarce and the British evidently had not become accustomed to them. Prices of things were generally found to be quite reasonable. Teaching methods in the university differed somewhat from the American system, with lectures prominent on the various cur ricula. Mrs. Rennion was introduced by Attorney Donald Woolsey, who was program chairman. The Galesburg Rotary Club received an invitation from the Burlington, Iowa, Rotary to attend its annual duck dinner early in November.

AA to Bring Clergyman to Public Meet A clergyman whose drinking troubles were ended when he joined Alcoholics Anonymous will tell his story and describe the work of AA at a public meeting Oct. 20 at Monmquth Armory. The appearance there by the clergyman, who is reportedly well- known in AA circles, is a project of the Galesburg, Monmouth, Bushnell, Davenport and Peoria chapter of AA to acquaint any one interested in AA with the organization's work. The clergyman is from outside Illinois and will not be otherwise identified for publication, AA officials said, in keeping with AA principles of anonymity. They said he first became acquainted with AA when called by a distraught wife to see her drunken husband. The clergyman, who had drinking problems himself, found some AA literature in the home, read it and later joined the organization. The meeting will begin at 8 p.m., and no admission will be charged.
