Kansas town has a 'piece of England' Chapel was moved stone by stone from England to Baldwin City By MATT TRUELL The Associated Press BALDWIN CITY — Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who steered England through the Falkland Islands War and a decade of troubles in Northern Ireland, brought childhood memories to this small, snow-covered prairie town Wednesday. She recalled her father preaching in the church that was recon- secrated at Baker University. "This is a very special day. It's a day when a piece of England is becoming a piece of Baker University in America," Thatcher told the crowd at the small United Methodist university. The chapel, which was moved stone by stone from Sproxten, England, after it was abandoned, was reassembled in the middle of the Baker campus. Earlier, Thatcher addressed about 2,800 people at the university's fall convocation. Many also attended the ceremony at the chapel. She wove twin themes of personal freedom buttressed by faith and individual responsibility in the 27-minute speech that recounted the life of John Wesley, the founder of the Methodism. "You cannot have freedom without rule of law," Thatcher said. The honey-colored chapel was built in Sproxton, in 1864. Sproxton, a quaint tiny village of stone cottages, is about 100 miles north of London. Workers in England numbered the stones when they disassembled the chapel in June 1995 for reconstruction on the Baker campus. "The university has no designs on Westminster Abbey ,at this time," joked Baker President Daniel L. Lambert. The chapel has about 25,000 stones and 19,000 clay roof tiles. It weighs about 250 tons. More than five tons of sawdust helped protect the contents'of the 200 crates that were shipped to Baker. Chanute students learn from globe painted on playground By Harris News Service CHANUTE — The students at Button Elementary School can go from Tibet to Sri Lanka in a single bound, and they do every day at recess. But they won't be earning frequent-flier miles, because their traveling is done on a large globe of the earth painted on a concrete slab on the playground. The globe not only features continents and oceans, countries of the world are demarcated by different colors. "It's fun to watch the kids run to different places and say 'Look Mr. Barnhart, I'm going to Hawaii,' " said Harold Barnhart, Hutton principal. "And they'll run to Hawaii and get in the ocean and swim. It's interesting how much geography is being learned from play." The globe, at the south end of the school building, was painted during the first week of October. The Hutton PTO bought paint for the project. Parents and teachers made the globe after school. Nearly all of the students and staff contributed by putting a border around the globe with their hand- prints. ^ e pumpkin patch Trinity United Methodist Church 901 East Neal Salina, KS 825-5270 October 17th * 31st, 1996 10 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. (Monday-Saturday) Noon - 8:00 p.m. (Sunday) Come buy your pumpkins and help support the youth of Trinity.
