During the 2015 Miller console rebuild, the 2' component from the Great III Mixture was also made available as a 2' Fifteenth, but still draws with the III Mixture tab. Blank tablets were included for future changes. The Zimbel Stern was a gift from Charles Walden. When the Schantz was origin- ally installed, local Schantz Rep. Al Lunsford was the organist. When he left, he took the zimbelstern with him citing it was his personal property. Sources: OHS Database; Photos by Ryan Seaver; Charles Walden Holy Ghost Catholic Church 1041 N.
