Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard Fri., JulyJS, 1968 Pg. 3 Mount Morris Sounds Its Freedom Bell MOUNT MORRIS - Mount Morris sounded its freedom bell Thursday, selected a queen Wednesday night, had a patriotic parade and heard a talk on freedom by a Bradley University professor during 'its salute to the Fourth of July. Linda McKay, a Mount Morris High School senior, was crowned queen of the festivities Wednesday night. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. H McKay. Queen Linda was crowned by last year's queen, Diane Jacobs Burd, Christine Worley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Worley was first runnerup and second runnerup was Melody Ridenour, daughter of Mrs. Marilyn Marshall and Leo Ridenour. The queen, retired Naval Com. Syril E. Avey and the Rev. Howard Griffin, pastor of the Christian Church, participated in a four-minute bell ringing ceremony at Kable Square. Units from Mount Morris, Freeport and other area towns marched to patriotic cadences in the hour-long parade through the village's downtown area. Dr. Nicholas Nyaradi, director of the School of International Studies at Bradley University, Peoria, told the Fourth of July crowd at the Kable Square band shell that he had not come to Mount Morris as a prophet of doom but to wake people to realize the blessings of freedom. Nyaradi, former finance minister of Hungary, described the Communist takeover of that country. He urged his listeners to teach youth the value of freedom and the importance of maintaining that freedom. The festivities closed with a fireworks display Thursday night.
