Local/Kansas 2 The Salina Journal Sunday, March 31, 1985 Page 9 City to consider lot rezoning Eva and Lloyd Depew have been married 70 years. Hard work cemented marriage of 70 years ' GREENLEAF (AP) - Lloyd and Eva Depew, who will celebrate an anniversary today here at their home, say they believe learning to Work together helped them learn to live together during 70 years of marriage. "I think staying home and working together helps a marriage," said Depew, 95. "The work didn't leave us time to run around," said his 90-year-old wife. The couple recalled the day they were married — March 31, 1915 — .as a wet, muddy spring day in Linn. ,,,', The honeymoon? • "We went to a hotel in Linn for 'supper, and then went home to work," said Depew. ; The couple farmed east of Linn for a couple of years, then moved to Greenleaf. After about a year in town, they returned to the farm. They farmed for about 47 years, always renting and never owning. 7 "We've lived in Greenleaf and Linn all our lives and never been outside them much," said Mrs. Depew. "We would have liked to travel but couldn't. We couldn't afford Jt." "People never had money then like they do now," she said. "I worked for 10 cents an hour during the Depression," said her .husband. "We paid $5 a month for a house here in Greenleaf, but even that was hard to get." • "Them days was hard pickin'," said Mrs. Depew. "If we had 10 cents at a picnic, we thought we were rich. Kids don't think nothing of spending $10 today. I tell you, it's a lot different. People have it good nowadays. It makes me kind of provoked." Asked what has contributed to their longevity, Mrs. Depew said, ."That's what work does." Yes, but what helped them to make a marriage work for seven decades? Lloyd said, "I told a doctor in Washington (Kansas) the other day that when we got married we had an agreement that, if there was an argument, one of us would get up and go outside until things cooled off," said Depew. "That's why he lived outdoors," his wife broke in with a chuckle. The Depews aren't too easy on some of today's farmers. "Farmers could still make a living if they wanted," said Mrs. Depew. "They come to town to buy eggs and bread. They don't have chickens. They're lazy. Now, I'm just going to say that ... they're lazy. We didn't have the government to help us every time the wind changed." "We're just telling the truth, and that never hurt no one, did it?" said her husband. The Depews, who miss fanning, especially the work, still are quite active. Until about three years ago, Depew would go out on ditching jobs with crews from the Greenleaf plumbing shop operated by their late son and only child, Elmer. His wife still shovels snow in the winter and plants a garden every spring. "I got my potatoes in already and come April 1, I'm going to make garden," she said. What advice do the Depews have for a young couple getting married today? "Learn to live and fight together," Mrs. Depew said with barely a pause. "Let her be the boss," added her husband. "They'd just have to figure it out themselves," said Mrs. Depew. Salina city commissioners will give final consideration Monday to rezoning the old Dillon's store property in the 1500 block of South Ninth. The owners of the vacant store and parking lot want the ground rezoned to C-5 commercial, allowing TSC Industries, 822 N. Santa Fe, to operate a retail store for farm, home and automotive supplies and equipment. Area residents, concerned about equipment storage and lower property values, are protesting the rezoning and have filed a petition opposing the change. Because of the petition, the rezoning will need at least four affirmative votes by commissioners for approval. Commissioners also will consider a petition filed by Ed Warmack, developer of the proposed Central Mall, and by National Bank of America, to vacate all of Century Plaza Drive near the northeast corner of South Ninth and Magnolia. City Engineer Dean Boyer recommends the vacation be granted. In a report to commissioners, Boyer said the street vacation proposal was reviewed by the engineering and planning departments during the platting stages of the development. If commissioners approve the vacation, Warmack and NBA would take title to the street. Also, commissioners will take final action on a rezoning request for East Bank Estates to R-l residential and give first-round consideration to rezone 712 Cherokee from R-l to C-5 service commercial. Other business includes: • A resolution authorizing street, water and sewer improvements for Eastgate Addition, east of Ohio on Ellsworth, and in Georgetown Addition in the Seitz Drive/Pheasant Lane area. • A request to set a public hearing for April 22 to hear comment on street, water and sewer improvements in various locations throughout the city. • A petition filed by J.G. Williams, 521 N. 13th, requesting that the city remove stop signs on Lincoln and Grand avenues between North Ninth and North Broadway. Classified ads get results.
