May 9, 1932... While Mary Schrier and family watched the progress of a lashing storm from their farmhouse window near Dorsey, she saw her son, Irwin, 24, knocked from a plow by a bolt of lightning. In his fall, his legs became entangled in the frame of the plow in such a way that his body was twisted, and he suffered a broken left hip. He had been on his way to the house in the storm.

Helen Yeothan and Prof. Chester N. Channon were elected first and second vice presidents of the 22nd District of the Illinois Federation of Music Clubs. She was also editor of The Libretto.
