 The Mentone Public Library was originally housed in a rented building on the north side of Main St. in 1916. The town later purchased a building on the south side of Main St., and the library remained in that location until 1959 when it moved to its present location. Dedication services in 1960 made the Mentone Public Library officially "The Bell Memorial Library." Funds for a memorial building were given in 1960 by the Bell estate to the town of Mentone, named in memory of the late Lawrence Bell, a famous name in the aircraft industry and native of Mentone, and dedicated to his parents, I.E. and Harriet (Sarber) Bell. Housed in the Library is the Bell Museum.
    Mrs. Walter (Pearl) Lackey has served as librarian of the Mentone Public Library since 1947, assisted by Mrs. David Bowser and high school students, Susan Tibbets, Ann Rush and Cindy Alsworth. Mrs. Dove Kurcher serves as the custodian.

 Prompt action by Ward Henderson, route 4, Warsaw, employee of the Warsaw Ice and Coal Company, saved Junior Ewing, 7, son of Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Ewing, of this city, from drowning about 5 o'clock Tuesday, Feb. 4. He and a group of play mates had gone skating after school on Center Lake. The youngster was separated from his mates when he became interested in watching workmen in the harvesting of ice, and was sliding around near the open water on his shoes when in some manner he fell in. Henderson fell on the edge of the ice and succeeded in grabbing the boy by the cap and hauling him from the chilly depths, about 25 or 30 feet.
    Grappling hooks and ropes from the Warsaw Fire Department were used to recover a power saw from Pike Lake Wednesday morning, Feb. 5. The saw, being used to cut ice for packing, went into an open spot and sank to the bottom.
