11. THE VOICE OF TINKER JONES
December 4, 1974
The town becomes divided when Mrs. Oleson offers to buy a bell for the church…including a plaque with the Oleson name. The differences and arguing begin to affect the schoolchildren. A mute craftsman, Tinker Jones, decides to settle the issue and gets the children to help him forge a bell. The town is surprised to hear the bell ringing on Sunday and learn a lesson about peace and goodwill from the children.
