Back in the News: June 30


50 Years Ago – 1963

June 28 – The Anderson Plan Commission welcomed Maurice Pike, 1927 Fletcher St., as a member at their meeting last night. The commission approved two major building projects, a Holiday Inn Motel to be built at 503 Hartman Rd., and an apartment structure to be built by W. Tom Walker on lots 9, 10, 11 and 15 in Hilltop Addition, Henry and 11th streets.

June 30 – Two former All-American Soap Box Derby National Champions will be on hand as members of the Anderson Soap Box Derby Inspection team. When Terry Townsend sped to victory, winning the 1957 All-America Classic, prophecy unfolded a repeated victory in 1959 when Barney Townsend rushed first across the finish line. His triumph gave the event its first set of brother champs, a distinction which Anderson shares with no other city in the nation. This Friday, all local cars will undergo inspection. Local Derby Director Jack Hunter said that any boy who has followed this year’s rule book will not have difficulty in passing the inspection with flying colors.

100 Years Ago – 1913

June 28 – Nellie M. Legg, of Pipe Creek Township, filed for divorce against Joseph Legg, her husband, alleging that he compelled her to carry coal a quarter-mile during the whole of last winter. She also alleges failure to provide for herself and 2-year-old child. The alimony sought is $500.

June 29 – A warning has been issued by Chief of Police Pritchard to boys to keep out of the pool in White River near the Big Four bridge north of Anderson. Since the flood, a new bridge has replaced the old one that was washed away, and a deep hole has been dug. The pool has been a favorite of many boys of the city, but at present it is full of iron and other materials from the construction of the new bridge and is not safe.
