      LEIK -- BERAN
      A romance dating back to college days, while the bride and bridegroom were students at the University of Dubuque culminated in the marriage of Miss Caroline M. Leik, only daughter of Mrs. Martha Leik, Dubuque, Iowa, and Rev. Milo Beran, Chicago, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Beran, Muscoda, Wis., which was solmenized in Westminster Presbyterian church at high noon, Tuesday, June 12th. Rev. David I. Berger, of the University of Dubuque, and a former teacher of the couple, was the officiating clergyman. The single ring ceremony was witnessed by relatives and scores of friends.
      For a brief time previous the service Miss Martha Zehetner, with whom the bride studied music, played a program of nuptial music, her numbers 'Love's Song' by Nevin, 'Perfect Love,' by Barnby and 'Song of Happiness' by Lemare.
      At the appointed hour the bridal party led by the ushers, Harry Short, Mendota, Ill., and Ezra (Tab) Jansen, Lakeview, Iowa, fraternity brothers of Rev. Beran, entered the church to the strains of Lohengrin's wedding march played by Miss Zehetner. At the conclusion of the service this artist rendered Mendelssohn's march. Just before the vows were taken Mrs. John G. Chalmers sang 'At Dawning' and after the ceremony she rendered 'Thou Art Lovely as a Flower.'
      Back of the ushers walked the bridesmaid, Miss Margaret Bancroft, who preceded the bride and her brother, Charles H. Liek, who gave her away in marriage.
      Master David Berger, a son of Rev. and Mrs. Berger was the train bearer.
      The groom, attended by his brother, Mr. John Beran, of Muscoda, Wis., awaited the bridal procession at the altar.
      The chancel was adorned with several large wicker baskets of peonies, the handles being ornamented with large pink and green tulle bows.
      Mrs. Beran wore a lovely gown of crepe back ivory satin fashioned with an overlace Bertha, basque waist, short full skirt with an uneven hem, and a tulle veil, worn in cap style with several bands of shirring and adorned with orange blossoms, worn by the bride's mother on her wedding day. It was designed with a three yard train. White roses and pink sweet peas were used in the shower bouquet.
      The bridesmaid's sleeveless frock of changeable taffeta of pale green and gold was designed with basque waist and a short skirt over which was pale green maline considerably longer in the back than in the front. Her head-dress was of rhinestones and her corsage of ophelia roses and pink sweet peas.
      Master Berger wore a white silk jacket and short pale green satin trousers.
      A reception and four-course buffet luncheon were attended by thirty-five guests at the Leik residence after the church service. White peonies were used in profusion for the home decorations.
      A motor trip in Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois will be the honeymoon of this couple and while traveling Mrs. Beran is wearing an Oxford gray tailored suit and a small felt hat.
      Rev. and Mrs. Beran will reside in Chicago for the summer where the former is assistant to Dr. John T. Stone, pastor of the Fourth Presbyterian church and president of the Presbyterian Theological school. This fall the newlyweds will go to Madison where the Rev. Beran has been named director of religious education in the Christ Presbyterian church.
      He was educated and graduated from the Dubuque University of Dubuque and the McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. He will receive his M.A. degree from the Northwestern University this summer. Mrs. Beran is a graduate of the Dubuque high school and attended the University of Dubuque.
      Miss Ruth Van Buren, Chicago, was an out of town guest at the wedding.

      REV. MILO BERAN GETS DESERVED APPOINTMENT
      Rev. Milo Beran, a former Muscoda boy received considerable mention in the Madison papers Saturday because of his appointment as Director of Religious Education at the Presbyterian church at Madison. Rev. George Hunt is pastor of the church in question and Rev. Beran's work will deal with the University students and other younger folks of the parish. Rev. Beran took with him to Madison an excellent reputation and certainly the citizens of this community will take pleasure in his appointment. That he will make a success of the work seems a foregone conclusion. -- 29 November 1928, The Muscoda Progressive. (The Capital Times, Friday 23 November 1928, Page 7 also has the story with photo, headed REV. BERAN NEW CHRIST CHURCH EDUCATION HEAD)

      HOMECOMING SERVICE AT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
      A son of this community, the only one who has entered the ministry, is coming home to deliver the address at the Homecoming service, Wednesday evening, April 5 at 7:30.... The Rev. Milo Beran is a thinker, a lover of Christ, and a fighter for what he deems worthwhile. He is minister of religious education in Christ Presbyterian church of Madison.... For several years he has been scoutmaster of Troop 13.... -- 30 March 1933, The Muscoda Progressive

      The cover of Scotts 1975 Guide to a better vegetable garden has a photo of Milo's son and daughter-in-law and grandchildren. Handwritten on it: "This garden which is pictured on Scotts products in 1975 belongs to Rev. Milo Beran. Besides being a good minister he is a good gardener too.'"

      REV. MILO BERAN NAMED ANDERSON CITIZEN OF YEAR
      Rev. Milo Beran, who served as pastor of the Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church, will be presented the Citizen of the Year award by the Anderson Chamber of Commerce at the Jan. 23 chamber awards dinner at Coldstream Country Club. Selection was made last Thursday afternoon by a chamber committee. Rev. Beran will be the fifth person presented the honor. Others, in order, were William M. Judd, H.D. West, E. Wayne Titus and E. Walter Black. The dinner will be open to the public but limited in number. John W. Croxton, TP White & Sons Funeral Home, noted in a nomination of Rev. Beran that he "has continued to [sic] a great influence in the area especially with the Senior Citizens." "Rev. Beran is a [sic] truly deserving of the honor of being selected ... and such an award recipient would be a deserving honor to the chamber,' Croxton added. Byron E. White, a resident of Mt. Washington and Anderson Township for more than 25 years, also has nominated Rev. Beran who he called 'community leader, pastor emeritus, counselor and prominent citizens.' While 81, Rev. Beran continues a variety of activity and service in the area begun in December, 1935 when he and his wife, Caroline, came to Mt. Washington, noted White. Rev. Beran served the Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church as pastor from December, 1935 to June, 1966 when he retired. Under the leadership the church grew from a membership of 180 to 1900, relocated and successfully completed its present building in three separate segments in the years 1953, 1958 and 1965 respectively. In retirement, said White, Rev. Beran has served at least two churches as interim minister, and continues to officiate at weddings and funerals. Also nominating Rev. Beran was E. Wayne Titus. 'Doctor, lawyer, merchant, chief -- as a pastor he was all things to all persons,' said Titus. 'His magnetic personality and unique sense of humor allowed his Sunday sermons to take on the aspect of a fireside chat.' 'Often times a champion of the underdog, yet always possessing a sense of fair play, never self-seeking, his capacity for tolerance appears to be unlimited,' continued Titus. 'True to his love for and service to mankind, he was the moving force behind SEM Manor, a resident apartment home for the elderly and was in great measure responsible for its being. He has and continues to play a leading role in the SEM.' '...truly a man for all seasons,' added Titus. 'A learned man and a scholar, his contribution to mankind can be measured only by eternity.' White noted that Rev. Beran was 'instrumental in assisting some young men of the community in obtaining jobs' during the Great Depression. 'He has been interested in and supportive of community sports programs, his interest in sports dating back at least to his college years when he participated in football, basketball and track. "Rev. Beran was an early member, and at various times trustee, of the now defunct Kiwanis Club of Mt. Washington and actively participated in its projects," added the local attorney. "One of his most inspired leaderships started in 1966 when Rev. Beran, together with a few other community leaders, organized the Southeastern Ecumenical Ministry, Inc. which now includes 26 Catholic and Protestant churches in Mt. Washington, Anderson Township and Clermont County," he noted. "More popularly known as SEM, this organization has spawned housing projects for the elderly of which SEM Manor on Pebble Court in Anderson Township and SEM Villa in Milford are two. Rev. Beran continues to be active in the work of the SEM." Rev. Beran serves on the Board of Trustees of Project Hope of Cincinnati, Inc., a non-sectarian organization which together with other local chapters and the national organization provide a variety of health services to people throughout the world, according to White. He also is active in "The Best Years" Senior Citizens Group, an organization in Anderson Township, eastern Hamilton County and Western Clermont County, and has served as the organization's president. -- clipping dated 12/26/78, Metropolitan Cincinnati p. 1, con't. p. 17.
