Before the rains came, however, five Mack School children tolled the bell as others watched. John W. Rae (dark suit at right), county chairman of the event, presided. George F. Williams (left) of Erwin Prieskorn post of the American Legion assisted in the ceremonies. The facsimile of the Liberty Bell is on a state tour to stimulate the purchase of government bonds.
