And There Was Light Seven students of the summer Bible school at the Lower Light Church, 3223 Nordman, created light as part of their studies this year - 15 lights, to be exact. The youngsters made 15 unusual table lamps from 9,620 popsicle sticks, 608 sticks to a lamp. Some of the lights were sold and some, like the one shown above in the home of Mrs. Nora Bemis, 117 E. Davis, were given to summer Bible school teachers. Each 608-stick lamp took approximately eight child-hours to glue together, Mrs. Bemis says. The 9 a.m. to noon Bible sessions also included half an hour of prayer and Bible teaching.
