NEILLSVILLE, Clark Co., Wis. - Mr. and Mrs. Emil Schendel, who have four sons and two daughters, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at their home in Neillsville on Sunday, March 20, 1949.

Emil Schendel and Anna Witt were married at Wilton on March 16, 1899, by Rev. J. Herring.

"The Lord Hath Helped Me Hitherto" and "Jesus Lead Thou On" were sung. The latter song was sung at the wedding 50 years ago and was repeated at the request of Mrs. Schendel.

A huge tiered cake, made by Mrs. Schendel, and decorated with gold designs and a miniature bride and groom served as a centerpiece for the table.

Dinner and supper were served to 40 guests by Mrs. Henry Schendel, Mrs. Herbert Schendel and Mrs. Gilbert Rohde.

Guests included Mr. and Mrs. Henry Schendel and children, June, Donna Mae, and Richard, and Mrs. and Mrs. Herbert Schendel and children, Cora Ann, Joseph David and Judy Kay, Greenwood; Mr. and Mrs. Leo Schendel and daughter, Esther, Tomah; Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Schendel and daughter, Lola, Merrill; Mr. and Mrs. Roman Pscheidt and Mr. and Mrs. Herman Steizner, Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Witt and daughter, Denise Jean, Kendall; Mr. and Mrs. Otto Witt, Mrs. Martha Schendel, Olga Bowen and Alois Schendel, Wilton; and Mr. and Mrs. Otto Schumacher and daughter, Dundee, Ill; and The Rev. and Mrs. Schewe and children, Neillsville, Wis.
