Fourteen Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune BURLINGTON Plan Dedication Of Post Off ice BURLINGTON - Mrs. Kva Brown, Burlington • postmaster, has announced that dedication ol the new post office will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday. The hew building, the seventh to house the Burlington post office, was opened into use Dec. 30, 1961. Construction time was less than one year. Mrs. Brown, who has'held' her present position since 1943, is the ninth postmaster at Burlington. The first postmaster was Mahlon Shinn. He took the job after being elected justice of the peace in 1832. This was the first .official election held in Burlington. Ac cording to Mrs. Brown how long Shinn served as postmaster or where the building was located is unknown. It is believed to have been located in the town's first inn, built and owned by Shinn. Mrs. Leota Noakes, of 517 S. Cicott St., and Mrs. Katie Gish, of Flora, are great-granddaughters of the first Burlington postmaster, Mahlon Shinn. Mrs. Noakes plans to attend the dedication program. The town of Burlington was laid out in 1827 and has come to be known as the largest "inland town" in Indiana. It is called this because there has never been a railroad nearer than six miles, Mrs. Brown said. At'the time of Shinn's employment as postmaster the town got its mail by way of stage coach that traveled the Michigan -road which, at that time, was a plank road. The stage coaches made Nutritionist To Lecture On May 27 Mrs. Ruth Rosevear, of Cincinnati, Ohio, a graduate of Cornell Universty with a major in chemistry, will be the guest speaker at a meeting on Sunday, 'May 27, sponsored by the Natural Foods Association. The meeting will be held al 1:30 p.m. at 50 Seventeenth Street, a block north of Seventeenth and High Streets. MRS.

She was engaged in the study of mental deficiency and nutrition. She is a. member of the American Medical Writers' Association and is currently the consulting, nutritionist at the Beechwold Clinic in Columbus, Ohio. MRS. ROSEVEAR will lecture on the topic, "Nutrition In Action."

Ora Hahnert, Mr. and Mrs. Odin Fiedner and Harold Keener are on the committee for the program. Nab 2 More For Thefts Two more 18-year-old youths have been arrested in connection with thefts of parts from wrecked automobiles at the Canfield sal vage lot in New Wavorly. Held in the, Cass county jail for investigation of petit larceny are Toby Wayne Townsend and Terry Lee Mogle, both of Peru. They were arrested at 12:05 a.m. Wednesday by State Trooper John Gaylor and Deputy Sheriff Hex Harris after they were caught at' tempting to take parts from a car, the officers said. The arresting officers were notified by Robert Canfield. owner of the car, that he was holding the youths. Townsend was fined $25 and 1 costs in the local justice of. the peace court on a charge of parking on the road and Mogle was fined $25 and costs for trespassing. . Robert Likens, Jr., 18, of rural route 3, Kokomo, and three younger companions were arrested Monday night in connection with previous thefts from cars on the lot. the trip from Madison to Michigan City every six-weeks. Burlington' is located on a hill overlooking Wild Cat Creek and was placed on this spot by the settlers because it was thought to be a good location for a mill. Mrs. Brown said that the town was named after an Indian chief who lived on a nearby reservation. The second location of the post office was on the west side of what is now. highway 29 and a few years later was moved further down the highway but remained on the same side. In 1885 a small brick building was built to house the post office but again it was .moved, this time to the east side of the highway. In 1934 it was moved back to the west side of (he highway and remained'there until 1952 where H was moved to another .building, In .1956 the post office was moved to a rented building and remained there until, it was relocated in the new building.. "The last place that we.were in was a hole-in-the-wall," Mrs. Brown said. "We had three small rooms and were so short on space that there wasn't room to turn around." The new building is a completely modern structure and has over 1,000 square feet ( of working space. Mrs. Brown described the new post office building as 'wonderful." Mrs. Brown is assisted in her duties by Mrs. Joretta Cosby, clerk, who has been working at :he post office for ten years, and Mrs. Alice Rodkey, auxiliary clerk, who has been with the rest office for six years. There is .no house to house mail service in Burlington. The ap- jroximalely 250 residents who are served by the post office have :o make daily trips into town to sick-up their mail. Mrs. Brown said when the post office was moved into the new juilding it was changed from a :hird class to a second class 3ost office. During her 20-years as postmaster Mrs. Brown said she couldn't recall anything exciting ever happening to her. "We were without lights for three days and lad to sort the mail by candle- ight and 'a few years ago two men tried to get change for a phoney $20 bill. I told them that ,ve didn't have enough money on land to change such a large bill, although we really did." Although the post office has been in its new location for quite some time, Mrs. Brown said she is enthused about the dedication. Burlington Boy Scouts will conduct the flag ceremony and several postal officials from lincinnati will attend. A buffet dinner will be held at the close of the dedication.
