WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1971 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE I History of Emanuel Lutheran Church i (Continued history of Lutheran Church from Saturday's edition of Tipton Daily Tribune.) A. H. Fedder 1935-1939 For the next three months until they were able to secure a new pastor, Rev. M. Lobeck of Arcadia supplied the pulpitregu- larly with vacationing students and young ministers in and about Indianapolis. Rev. A. H. Fedder of Columbus, Ohio, accepted the call, a graduate of St. Louis Seminary, 1928. During his residence, the teacher FredWitte and his wife occupied the. arsonage; the pastor lived in a rented par tment. During Rev. Tedder's four years, pastoral letters were mailed at irregular intervals to the members. These took the place of a church paper. Brass candles and crucifix for the altar, and a new church carpet were purchased by the Ladies' Aid, and equipment and improvements were made on the church property* In the fall ot 1939, Rev. Fedder received a call to Des Plaines, 111. He preached his farewell sermon in December of that year. Rev. Singer One week later, January 7, 1940, Rev. Albert A. Singer was installed in a service by Rev. E. Wunderluch of Arcadia.. Rev. Singer, a native of Canada came to Emanuel from Wyoming, Minn. Among the occasions in his ministry were the dedication of a new church organ and the burning of the mortgage, marking the . liquidation of the debt on the school building, the total cost of which had been] $27,000. In time for this occasion, the church had been redecorated, fluorescent lights installed, and a few Sundays before, the new Lutheran Hymnals had been dedicated. During Rev. Singer's pastorate the Ladies Aid affiliated with the Women's Missionary League of the Synod. In the summer of 1944, after 18 years of service as teacher of, choir director and church organist, Fred Witte tendered his resignation ito accept the Principalship of the -school of Emanuel Lutheran Church at New Haven. A farewell banquet was given in his honor. New Teacher Immediate steps were taken to call a new teacher. These were war years and the beginning of a great scarcity of teachers in the Synod. Three calls proved unsuccessful before the opening of a new term, and in the emergency Miss Ruth Rossow, a student at River Forest was engaged to teach one term. At the close of the school year, a farewell party was given in her honor. Efforts were resumed in January 1945, to secure a resident teacher. Harold F. Meier of Alva, Okla., accepted the call in late May. After much difficulty because of the war-time housing shortage, a teacherage was purchased at the corner of Adams and Conde Streets. A down-payment of $1,000 was made on the property by the Ladies Aid. The Meiers arrived on the evening of VJ Day, August 14, 1945. Installation services were held and a reception was given. At this time the congregation had its first school board composed .of Alfred Leininger, Gavril Kakasuleff and Raymond ~ Leininger. The war years put extra burdens on pastors and congregations alike throughoutSynod. Except for six weeks during the summer of 1944 when the pastor consulted specialists' in Wisconsin and Rochester, Minn. Rev. Singer carried on his work with zeal and courage, but his health was failing fast. On Sunday, October 21, 1945, he preached his last sermon; The following day he entered an Indianapolis hospital to undergo treatment for a heart ailment After a three weeks stay, he was returned to his home unimproved.

Since meat is an important part of the diet and often consumes a large portion of the food budget. Miss Marcile Allen, Extension foods anil nutrition specialist ' at Purdue University, offers the following information as. a shopping aid. | Stew meats and less tender roasts are the less popular cuts of meat and usually the most economical. Although hamburger also falls into this group as far as adults are concerned, with children it is the most popular. The more tender and more expensive cuts include ribs, T- bone. Club, Porterhouse, and Sirloin steaks. The demand for steaks and rib roasts is especially high during the cook-out season, j ' Price does not determine nutritive value, bleats contain high quality protein; which aids in growth and repair of body tissue* Tbey also. provide iron, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin. Lean meats are much the same in value : whether from tender or less tender cuts, except that pork is a better source of thiamin. Liver is exceptionally high in many nutrients as are variety meats— kidney and heart. Dried beans and peas are valuable for many of the same nutrients and can be used in place of meat some of the time. Peanut butter is another good value price! wise. Eggs also furnish valuable amounts of several nutrients. One particular size is often featured as a good buy.

Many of you reading this (article can remember wars linvolving Japan, Germany, Korea, and now North and South Vietnam.. With all of pur talk of civilization and with all of our supposed progress, our moon probes, satellites^nd vast scientific knowledge, our great strides in medicine and technology, we are'still left with ,the inescapable conclusion that man.has made little j progress in getting along with his fellow man. . Not only is there war between Churchj Society Has people, but there is also the internal war that millions of people experience, the lack of peace of mind. Truly, we live in a world of searching, restlessness and turmoil where millions are searching for peace of mind.. Yet, peace of mind is that state which God grants us. when we are living according to His will and com- ' pletely trust in His providence and promises. As long as we try to do it ourselves, we will experience insecurity and frustration but when we give our lives, ourselves, our burdens to Jesus and trust Him and His promises He will provide' for ^our needs and we will find "that peace that passes all understanding.".
