Back in the News: July 28


50 Years Ago – 1963

July 30 – And a good time was had by all! 42,200 persons – actual count at the gate – attended the third annual four-day Delco-Remy Guide Lamp Family Festival held at Killbuck Park, the 214-acre playground for General Motors workers in Madison County. All GM employees were invited to the festival which featured free carnival rides and shows, and a daily stage show starring the Hoosier Briar Hoppers, a variety group; the Tom Moriarity Trio; Chicki Hopkins, Indianapolis TV Personality; and the James Perkins “World of Magic” show.

July 31 – A sales clerk at the Victory Inn just east of Anderson College was forced at gunpoint yesterday to give away $130 to three men reported to have driven a black late model car. According to sheriff’s deputies, the robbers entered the store at about 4:25 p.m. The clerk was apparently too frightened to give adequate descriptions of the three men. Authorities said the getaway car was last seen headed north on Nursery Rd.

100 Years Ago – 1913

July 29 – Acil Alexander, 24, the Union City farmer who is going from city to city in search of a brown-eyed girl to become his wife, was in Anderson on Sunday. He called at the home of Miss Mildred Gibbons, 522 West 13th Street, but Miss Gibbons was not at home. Mr. Alexander also called at the Herald office on Sunday afternoon and introduced himself. He made a few inquiries for girls with brown eyes, but got no encouragement at the Herald office. Mr. Alexander left this city for Muncie to continue his search.

July 31 – Fire Chief Alford made his first run in the new chemical outfit yesterday when Nos. 1 and 2 hose companies were called to the L.O. Williams hose on Delaware street, south of 17th Street, to fight a blaze believed to have started from a tinner’s fire-pot on the roof of the house. It took more than chemicals to stop the blaze, with $200 in damage done to the roof before the fire was extinguished.
