(Correction from Last Week)

In the obituary for Harvey Schwarze which appeared in last week's edition of the Owen Enterprise, the story failed to mention that Arlyn Mills was the soloist and was accompanied on the organ by Mr. Schwarze's granddaughter, Berdell Nielsen.  Mr. Mills sang "Abide with Me" and "Just as I Am."
