Mr. and Mrs. Amiel Lindow, Granton, route 2, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary with a 7 o'clock dinner at their farm home June 28, the 50th anniversary of their marriage. For the occasion the house was festooned with gold and white streamers, garden flowers, and tall gold candles decorated the table centered with a three tier wedding cake decorated with gold and white leaves and flowers. The evening was spent socially and the couple received gifts of money from their guests.

Mr. Lindow, 71 years old, born and educated in Brillion, Calumet County, came to Clark County at the age of 14 and worked for his brother on the farm.

They have nine grandchildren, all of whome except Sgt. Oris Anding, who is with the U.S. Army in Australia, were also present.
