METHODISTS, FENTON, PLAN BIG JUBILEE To Celebrate Paying Debt Against the Church. Hy Mrs. Don IVcislirod. Fenton, Jan. 9—Fenton Methodists will celebrate freedom from debt this week Wednesday. A winter jubilee picnic and basket dinner is planned, with coffee furnished by the Aid. Following the dinner, there will be an auditorium program, with Dr. A. L. Semnns, Spencer, as main speaker. Burning the debt papers will be a feature. Former pastors and their families have been invited to attend. The church was erected and dedicated in 1922. All indebtedness was (hen provided for, but because of the late depression many pledges were defaulted, and a debt of $.1400 remained last spring. Corn Pays the DoM, Then at the suggestion of John Mullins, Corwith seed corn producer, 31 farmers here pledged one acre of 1938 corn each, known as God's Acre, to payment of the debt, Mr. Mullins furnishing the seed without cost. The pastor, the Rev. J. G. Waterman, planted and tended one acre himself. To the sums raised in this way were added contributions large and small from other persons till the full amount of the debt was covered The Rev. W. J. Witter, pastor now at Nemaha, was pastor here at the time the church was built The Rev. E. Thomas Gerkin, now deceased, was the next pastor. Because of poor health he retired and his place was taken by Rev J. T. Snyder, pastor now at Alta who served here seven years. Chnrch Kept Repaired. In the period thus covered the church was redecorated at a cost of $400, practically a new furnace was installed at a cost of some $900, and $100 was invested in new hymnals. On October 4-7, 1934, the church celebrated its 60th anniversary with a homecoming with all former pastors taking an active part. The Snyders were moved in the fall of 1937, and the Rev. Mr. Waterman was sent here from Hawarden. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ — ^ jfa _^ Lj>dL _ Jt _^_ L __^^ j ^^._ .•...,*. —i ii in -- 1,1 ~ MASON CITY GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM <to83tjftt cdtwrt ADVAMcm ALQONA.
