Mr. Volk, 89, Still Enjoys Climbing
The number of years that have fallen on a man does
not mean curtailment of activity to all men. We are speaking of William
E. Volk, Sr., who is 89 years of age. Last week Mr. Volk climbed
up on his barn to supervise a shingling job, so the little boy instincts
live long in the heart of some.

December. Mrs. Volk is 84 years of age. They plan on
attending a homecoming celebration in Kewanee, their birthplace, on October
