Elba Congregation Plans Church 90th Anniversary WILLIAMSFIELD - Although they don't meet there anymore, members of the disbanded Elba Methodist Church congregation this Sunday will commemorate the 90th anniversary of the little country church near Williamsfield. Mrs. Lynn Sherman of Williamsfield, a former member of the church, said the church closed its doors almost a year ago, and members of the congregation are now attending other churches in the area. Some 50 persons attended services at the church before it closed, she recalled. The one-story frame church was erected in 1873 and was dedicated in June of that year. A Rev. Gruber was the first pastor. Rev. William Marx, who JOHNS-MANVILLE INSULATION Call WHITE'S - 342-0185 Your Neighbor Say* now resides in California, was the final pastor. A women's society and the Elba Worth While Club are responsible, she said, for keeping the building and grounds in good condition. They are assisted by a board of trustees consisting of Robert Ekstrand, Lynn Sherman, Gene Sherman, Bernice Davis, Helen Plack and Mildred Bodinus. Some of the former Sunday school superintendents and ministers are expected to attend the Sunday services to begin at 2 p.m. Thomas Gains Recognition For Public Safety Service Recognition was given Wednesday night by Knox County Safety Council to J.

The cafeterias, Mrs. John Stewart, director of the district's hot lunch program said, serve federal government approved Type A meals. For a minimum cost, a student can purchase a meal which includes milk, proteins, fruit or vegetable, milk, bread and butter. The hot lunch program receives five cents back from the government for each Type-A meal served to students, she explained. For elementary students, a hot meal costs 32 cents and junior high and high school students pay 37 cents, she said. Adults who eat in the cafeterias must pay 42 cents, she added. The government, * she said, also reimburses the program four cents for every half- pint of milk served. Students who do not wish to use the cafeteria at the high school, may select sandwiches, milk or other items at reasonable prices from what Mrs. Stewart calls a "snack line." 52,788 Meals Served Emphasizing the size of the cafeteria operation in District 205, Mrs. Stewart pointed out that 52,788 student meals were served during September. Multiplying this figure times the number of months in the school year, more than 450,000 meals will have been served. Mrs. Stewart said between 85 and 90 per cent of the school grocery bill is paid to firms in Galesburg. Some of the food items needed come from out-of- town firms and the federal government, she explained. The food bill alone ran $126,929 last year, she related. To keep the hot lunch program functioning properly 54 cafeteria workers are employed in the eight school cafeterias. Last year's payroll for 53 cafeteria workers amounted to better than $68,000. Began in 1955 The program, which still could be considered in the infancy stage, was initiated in 1955 at Allen Park and Cooke schools. The initial program was PTA-sponsored. As the program progressed seven other school cafeterias were established. At the present time, there are eight school cafeterias including Allen Park, Cooke, Wataga, Henderson CHOW LINE-Hungry Galesburg High School students line up for a well-balanced meal for just 37 cents.

Cites "Great Gains" McClurg, following the election, told the group, "I think we made some great gains this year in safety and I think we could have done better. Maybe we can do better next year." Copies of the president's report on the many council activities during the period October 1962 to October 1963 in the interest of safety, were distributed during the meeting. McClurg read a copy of a letter sent to city officials seeking traffic signals for the Henderson-North intersection and use of the present school crossing signals at another location if the change should be made. A letter is to be sent by the council to City Manager Tom Herring relative to a reported plan to remove stop signs governing traffic on Dayton Street at the Academy Street intersection. Parents in the area are opposed to this move, it was reported. Fire Chief Nelson told of the fire power show, today and Friday, in which the council is assisting the fire department. Guy Parkins, Galesburg and Knox County civil defense director, spoke of the defense organization's action in sending personnel to Monmouth, in which they were assisted by the Knox County Disaster Unit. J. W. Day, president of the latter organization pledged its cooperation to the council. The Chicago Motor Club has approximately 50 safety films available for distribution, A. J.
