Second St., and Lester Munneke, 4M North G St., were honored Wednesday night as co'^recipients of the Mofunouth Area Chamber of Commerce Man of the Year award. David Turnbull, the 1073 winner of the award, made the presentation at the Sith annual meeting ol the Chamber at the student center at Monmouth College. Mrs. Peterson recently retired from teaching in the music department at Monmouth College for 50 years. In making the presentation, Turnbull said, "Gracie Gawthrop Peterson has endeared herself to MonmOuth citizens for many years and toilched the lives of most of Us with her music, shows and piano concerts." Munneke will retire at the-, end of this school year from 30 years of service as bandmaster at Monmouth High School. Turnbull said, "His contribution must surely be measured in the contributions he made to the lives d human beings. He has involved an enormous number of students in music and been an ambassador for our city through his band and orchestra students." Robert E. Shunick, executive vice president of the Chamber, introduced Rev. Paul Showalter, associate pastor of Immaculate Conception Church, who gave the invocation. Following dinner, E. J. Chamberland, retiring president, reviewed Chamber activities during the past year. He noted that one new business, the Illinois Box and Crate Corp. operated by Allan MONMOUTH Correspofident Mn^ Lorraine Sti uth For News 412 S. 10th St. Phone 734-4921 For Missed Copies Before 6 P.

Chamberland also reported that several local firms, including Wilson-Sinclair, Western Stoneware, Ralph Wells Co. Smoler, and Glastex, were in the process of expanding their operations. Lester W. Brann Jr., president of the Illinois State Chamber of Commerce, was the featured speaker and his topic was Take Part or Be Taken Apart. Brann quoted the results of several surveys and polls which showed that the image of free enterprise and the business community has deteriorated seriously during the past 20 years. "Public esteem for the business community keeps dropping and we have reached the stage where people are going to judge business on performance," he said. "The 'put down' of business is now over," said Brann, "business must now speak out and tell the true story about business." He urged all of the businessmen and businesswomen at the meeting to stand up for business. He suggested that they start by relating the true story of their operations to their customers, employes. suppliers, the clergy and community leaders. Richard McVey, 1973-1974 Chamber president, discussed the proposed program for the coming year. McVey said, "We can expect big changes within the next year." He said that with the completion of US. Bypass 34 the city will be able to get the downtown streets back. "Then we'll be In a position to begin a major downtown improvement program," McVey said. McVey also outlhied the operation of a newly formed Ambassadors Club which the Chamber is sponsoring. He said the members of the Ambassadors Club will be responsible for greeting and conducting tours for visiting groups who come to Monmouth. McVey also presented a plaque of appreciation to outgoing president Chamberland. Rapist Gets 5,000 Year Prison Term WACO, Tex.
