The Huron County Board of Education named Richard Ross of Wakeman, Robert Wenner of New London and Donovan Biggs of New London and Donovan Biggs of Olena.

City man's ordination is Sunday

Stanley Raymond Chapin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond G. Chapin, 181 St. Mary's St., will be ordained into the Christian ministry Sunday at 3 p.m. at the First United Presbyterian Church.

Taking part in the services will be the Rev. George Walton, vice moderator of the Maumee Presbytery, the Rev. Ernest Bigelow, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Findlay, and Dr. John K. McDivitt, pastor of the local church.

Mr. Chapin has accepted a call to serve churches in Baldwin and Monmouth, Iowa. He is married to the former Dorothy Toole of Norwalk and they are parents of a daughter, Deborah.

Lee Maddocks Willard's Young Man for 1963

Lee M. Maddocks, 35, was named Willard's outstanding young man for 1963 at the Junior Chamber of Commerce second annual distinguished service award banquet Thursday night. William Booth, one of the five non-Jaycee judges, made the announcement.

Donald Buckingham, last year's recipient, presented Mr. Maddocks with the distinguished service award plaque.

Maddocks is a graduate of Mason City, Iowa, high school and Iowa State University. He started his career with R.R. Donnelley and Sons Company as an industrial engineer in their Crawford, Ind. Plant. He was transferred to the Donnelley Willard plant in 1959 as department superintendent of the bindery.

He is a member of the official board of the Grace Methodist Church and also serves on the finance commission. He was co-chairman for Little League baseball drive. He is a cubmaster and was active in the library bond issue campaign.

Maddocks and his wife, Lyndall, live at 221 W. Laurel Street with their four sons, Steve, 12, Cliff, 10, Randy 9, and Clark, 8.

The Kimes to mark golden anniversary

Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Kime of North Fairfield will receive friends and relatives at an open house celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, Sunday, Feb. 2, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the North Fairfield Grange Hall.

Planning the affair are the couple's three daughters, Mrs. Roger Whetstone of rural Willard, Mrs. Clifford Currier and Mrs. Robert Lehnert, both of Jefferson.

The Kimes were married Feb. 4, 1914 in rural Fairfield at the home of Mrs. Kime's parents.

Flyers entertain Trojans

The St. Paul Flyers would probably call it a successful season if they can win on Saturday night even though they have won only two of 12 games so far this year. The Saints will take on South Central at the Junior High gym in a game that is becoming more of a rivalry than that with Milan or Monroeville.

Dave Stoll, who has been showing marked improvement both on offense and defense, will go to a guard spot along with Tom Fries. The center spot will be manned by either John Magnuson or Mike Meesig.

Lennie Wiedemann and Mike Myers will probably get the nod as the starting forwards.
