Outstanding Jake!!!!

I'm working on the Cohan connection but lyrics are hard to come by for many of his on the web. That may require a trip to a larger "city" library.

We do have a neat smaller library here that has some very hard to find things. The Wagnall's Memorial" is in a little town called Lithopolis and was built by the founders of Funk and Wagnalls who also funded "across the board" scholarships to any student graduating high school in the district. THey figured there was enough money to last forever but never figured on the growth of Columbus nor the unreal rate of inflation. Now the place has a tough time keeping the doors open. It gets community support and would be a real loss to the community.
