Back in the News: Oct. 20


50 Years Ago

Oct. 22 – Some 20,000 Anderson Township residents became “city dwellers” again yesterday and all eligible voters were assured ballots in the Nov. 5 city election with action taken by the Indiana Supreme Court. The Court ordered Madison County Circuit Judge Carl Smith to set aside his ruling which declared the 1957 annexation of unincorporated sections of Anderson Township by the city of Anderson unconstitutional. Judge Smith was also ordered to expunge from his record an interlocutory injunction which prevented officials from carrying out annexation procedures.

Oct. 25 – Madison County residents have once again exhibited their faith and confidence in the county-wide United Fund and its good works by going over the top for the fifth time in that many campaigns. A total of $469,786 was reported at the final session Thursday at the Anderson YMCA. The required goal to support the United Fund and its 32 member agencies in 1964 was $463,500. The over-subscription by $6,286 represents a slight cushion that will be a hedge against possible collection loss in the coming months.

100 Years Ago — 1913

Oct. 24 – A movement to organize a Chamber of Commerce in this city is on foot and definite steps toward the proposed organization will be taken as soon as next week. Mr. Charles, of Muncie, who has been conducting campaigns for a Chamber of Commerce at Lafayette and other points, was here yesterday. He was in conference with Arthur W. Brady, president, and Wallace B. Campbell, secretary, of the Anderson Commercial Club. A Chamber of Commerce would entail merging of the Commercial Club, the Merchants’ Association and all other organizations for the industrial and mercantile interests of the city.

Oct. 25 – Work on two new brooding ponds being built by the state on the John Stephens farm, east of this city, is being rushed and within another week will be completed. The work is being done under the direction of the Madison County Fish and Game Association. When the ponds are completed the local hatchery will be able to put 50,000 young bass in streams after the brooding season next year.
