REPUBLIC — Cadet Craig A. Salo received practical work in military leadership at the United States Army ROTC advanced camp, Fort Lewis, Wash.

The six-week camp, attended by cadets normally between their third and fourth year of college, included instruction in communications, management, and survival training. Successful completion of the advanced camp and graduation from college results in a commission as a second lieutenant in either the United States Army, Army Reserve, or National Guard for the cadet. The cadet is a student at Northern Michigan University, Marquette. He is the son of Kenneth W. and Marion L. Salo of Republic and a 1987 graduate of Republic-Michigamme High School.

MARQUETTE — Signe E. Larson of Lindsborg, Kansas, noted among both artists and church leaders for her picture of Christ “Thy Kingdom Come,” will present a program of illustrated religious messages at the Messiah Lutheran Church tomorrow evening.

Deaf from birth, Miss Larson will be assisted in the combination art-and-worship service by her sister, Miss Elvira Larson, with whom she has traveled extensively in this country, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. The program is all-denominational, according to the Rev. J. Otto Magnuson, pastor of Messiah. There is no admission charge but a free will offering will be taken. Always adept at lip-reading, Miss Larson successfully completed work for a degree from Bethany College in Lindsborg in 1933. She later studied on a scholarship at Washington University, St. Louis, Mo., and at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. She also studied at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Washington University, Seattle, and the summer school of the Chicago Art Institute at Saugatuck, Mich.

Miss Larson’s name is listed in the second edition of Who’s Who of American Women. She received the Bethany College Alumni Award of Merit in 1960.
