• Last Saturday Mr. and Mrs. John P. Janzen of Elbing drove to Canton, Okla., accompanied by Rev. and Mrs. August Schmidt, to attend the funeral of Benjamin Spotted wolf, a chief of the Arapaho tribe. He was a longtime member of the Arapaho Mennonite Church, having been baptized by Rev. J. A. Funk in 1900. He and his wife Helen were married in the church and in 1965 celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary there. He died at the age of 82. "With the passing of these older faithful Christians also pass some of the old traditions and culture of the past that were good," comments Mrs. Janzen.
