Back in the News: Nov. 10


50 Years Ago – 1963

Nov. 10 – Dr. Candace Stone, for 10 years chairman of the Anderson College social studies department before her retirement in 1957, has had her book, “Dana and the Sun,” chosen for the new White House Library in Washington. Widely known here for her many interests and community activities while on the Eastside campus, she was the speaker last March at the annual Model United Nations General Assembly, which she founded at the College in 1947. “Dana and the Sun” is the story of Charles A. Dana, editor of the New York Sun from 1868 to 1897.

Nov. 14 – Plans for immediate construction of a 145,600 square-foot building addition to Guide Lamp Division of General Motors have been announced by Byron L. Stewart, general manager. The new one-story structure will be an extension to the south end of the present plant on Pendleton Avenue. It will be constructed of brick, steel and concrete. The new building will permit a rearrangement and expansion of manufacturing facilities, according to Mr. Stewart.

100 Years Ago – 1913

Nov. 12 – Late yesterday afternoon, one of the employees of the Remy Electric Co. got hold of a live wire which caused him to fall in a faint. One of the young woman in the office seeing the man fall thought he was killed, and as a result she fainted. An ambulance was summoned but before it arrived, a courageous young man pulled a switch which shut off the current and released the hold on the man. He was soon revived as was the girl, and the ambulance returned to the barn empty.

Nov. 14 – Burglars entered the grocery store of Price & Edens, 2503 Jackson St., about 10:30 last night, and stole $2 from the cash drawer, three pounds of cheese, 100 cigars, and several pounds of bologna. Patrolmen Vandergrift, Burnett and McFarlan investigated but could not find any trace of the robbers. The back door had been unlocked with a skeleton key. It is suspected that the robbers were persons acquainted with the store, possibly boys.
