I'lirticularly tbe Wednesday morning .services which are broadcast over- the Columbia radio ' network during the school year. This weekly program from the small village outside of Detroit i.s probably Ihe most, authentic early American program on the air today. An old silver bell made long tiso by the ton of Paul Revere rings out Ihe theme for the broadcast, The bell hangs in the chapel of an old-fashioned 18th Century chapel in tile heart, of the village, where Henry Ford has attempted lo recreate life in America as it was 100 years ago. The people who live in Greenfield Village, with its Early American treasures and landmarks, cany on old-fashioned trades. «»t.\i huiu luivii, in a corner 01 me >-'"'.» vu viu-jii^>iiiuiii.u usuics. living room lie found Ihe innrmider Their children go lo school in a —a fiiuhteiH'd duck which hud I 1 ' 0 " 1 °' (l country school house.

Most of the songs arc sung by the school children from memory, (lie group knowing more than 108 psalms by heart. The children range from tiny tots to yoiing men and women of 18 and 20. The Village had only 32 pupils when the cliapel services were first started on Sept. Nilh, 1929. Since (he chapel had just been erected there were no pews for them to sit on. They had to carry their own chairs to services. Now there are 153 regular singers.
