(Staff Photo) PERU—Ten years ago a Peru school teacher wanted a hobby that was different. She found it and has been collecting bells ever since.- Miss Elizabeth Ridenour, a mathematics teacher at Peru high school since 1945, said "I felt: that I should be collecting something and decided on bells." • She, bought her first bell in a little gift shop and since that time she has acquired 163, buying a small, bell just- a few days ago. When Miss Ridenour started the collection she though they would be such an odd item to collect that riot too many people would be collecting them. She later found that- there was a national organization of bell collectors of which she;is now a member. This organization has over 800 members, which includes members in England and Canada. There are over 20 members in Indiana. When you walk into Miss Ride- flour's horqe the first thing that will! greet you will be a bell hanging to the left .of the outside door. On entering the house, there is a shpl f nri fie left, above the davenport containing small silver bells and a few glass bells. To the right of the room is a floor type nick nack stand that contains old-fashioned school bells. In a bookcase in the back of the room are approximately 30 to 40 bells of different shapes and sizes. Miss Ridenour has collected bells from almost every state and has several bells from foreign countries sent to her by friends. One of her favorite bells is the elephant bell. She said this is one of the nicest because it has a wonderful tone to it. The elephant bell, according to Miss Ridenour, is a bell that is- placed around an elephant's body. She also has goat bells, camel jells, sleigh bells and cow bells. She has received bells from Holland, Norway, Spain, Italy, >Jew Zealand, Thailand, Japan, England, France and Germany. She has a Japanese wind bell :hat was given to her by a Japanese student who was staying in Peru a few years ago. When ;he student left she sent Miss Ridenour the - bell. One of the oldest bells that she has was recently given in her by the superintendent of the Peru hospital. The bell looks as though it was one of- the religious type. According to. Miss Ridenour it was found in the attic of the old Wabash Railroad hospital and, at one time, around 1892 to 1895, several Catholic nuns worked in this hospital. While in Chicago a few years ago, Miss Ridenour visited Chinatown. While there she couldn't resist the temptation to buy a bell. A few months later a friend of hers went to San Francisco, while -there she decided to buy Miss Ridenour a bell. When Miss •Ridenour received the bell it was an exact replica of the one she bought in Chicago. Miss Ridehour has bells from one inch tall to several inches high. Her biggest is a large dinner bell that she plans to hang in her yard. The smallest bell was once used as part of a watch fob. While attending a bell association in Mexico she bought a bell that was hand made out of lava rock. She also 'collects records' 1 of bells, slides of jamous bells and slides of how bells: are" made. She uses these different items in talks', that she gives. In the past few 'years she has given talks at Kiwanis clubs, University groups and church groups. Raymond L. McGuire, Carroll Co.
