Back in the News: Feb. 23


50 Years Ago – 1964

Feb. 26 – More than two dozen uniformed policemen and civil defense patrolmen will be on duty this evening at the Anderson High School Wigwam to eliminate traffic congestion and prevent any outbreaks among fans, Anderson Police Chief Doyle Wright announced yesterday. Seven Civilian Defense men will be in the streets around the gymnasium, and others will handle parking in the lots. Chief Wright urges fans to double-up in driving and to park in the first legal place the see within walking distance of the Wigwam.

Feb. 28 – Nationally and regionally known leaders from many denominations will speak in 43 Anderson area churches during the Simultaneous Evangelistic Effort, March 1-15. The city-wide program, unique in religious history here, begins Sunday afternoon in a mass rally at Anderson High School gymnasium with Dr. Lawrence Lacour, Nashville, Tenn., widely known Methodist evangelism leader, as speaker.

100 Years Ago – 1914

Feb. 24 – Fire originating in the Anderson Club rooms, on the third floor of the McCullough-Durbin block, 11-17 W. Ninth St., damaged the building and contents to the extent of $5,000. The blaze is thought to have been caused by electric wires at the switch board in the rear of the Anderson club. The fire shot up into the attic of the building where the greatest damage was done. The loss from water was much greater than the loss from fire, as several rooms were completely soaked when fighting the blaze. It was necessary to cut a hole in the dance floor of the ball room to let the water out.

Feb. 28 – Mrs. Hutch Woods, 1721 W. Ninth St., called the police station last night asking that a policeman be sent to her home in order to help her procure her children who were in the custody of her husband whom she alleged was intoxicated. Patrolman Vandergrift answered the call and found the husband sound asleep and the children also in bed. The wife asked that her husband not be arrested and she went to the home of a neighbor for the night.

  • Davis, Verna mug Verna Davis: Peace is worth fighting for Some people say they know how to find peace. We should “simply” follow our hearts, search for meaning in our lives, and fulfill our dreams. Sad to say, those things may bring us a bit of satisfaction, but they certainly don’t bring us peace.
