We proudly devote certain sections of our book to a review of people and events that have left their marks on this great county. Time and space do not permit a more complete record. May we say "Thanks for a line heritage" to those sturdy pioneers who have laid the foundation for good homes, churches, schools and industries. We seniors finishing our high school days at the mid-point of the twentieth century, aim to record for our friends, our families and ourselves a record of the 1949-50 school year of Gettysburg High School. Wheii memories grow dim and school friends scatter, we are permitted to visit in spirit friends and places, through the medium of the 1950 Cannon-Aid, published at Gettysburg, Pa.

SHE1-:LY Judge of Adams Comify, 1950 Adams Count , 1800-1950 HIS YEAR Adams County celebrates the a p i. 7 sesqui-centennial anniversary of its found- '-4 ing as a separate county. Although settled be 'fi ' in the early part of the eighteenth century, it was not until 1800 that its residents were successful in securing an act of the legislature establishing this area as a separate county with its own officials, its own courts, and its own county government. Witli a population of 13,172 in 1800 the county has grown in population to more than 45,000 in 1950. The same period of time has seen the county advance toia position of major importance in the commonwealth in many Helds of activity. It is perhaps not too much of an exaggeration to say that no other county is so out- standing in so many different fields of endeavor. Es- sentially an agricultural community, it has not only excelled in the production of fruit and other agricultural products but it is favorably known for its educational institutions, its industries. and its scenery and points of historical interest which make it an ideal tourist and vacation resort attracting many thousands of vis- itors each year. Patriotically, the people in the county have responded in every war in which our country has been engaged by the enlistment of men and women in the armed serv- ices and in civilian work connected with the war effort. No appeal of the government whether it be for men, money, materials, or assistance in morale-building pro- grams has gone unanswered. In most instances the response of the people of the county has far exceeded the request. During every period of emergency the people of the county have moved as a united group to accomplish that which was necessary. Adams County is justly proud of its patriotic record. It has been said that the county was settled by all the important racial elements which constituted the colonial population of Pennsylvania. "This area was indeed a melting pot of populationf, Herein lies the secret of the growth and importance of the county and herein is its greatest asset. Made up of people of many races and creeds our ancestors learned to live and work together harmoniously for the common good and to respect the viewpoints of others. This is the heritage which they have given us and because of it we have been able to remain united, working for the good of all, and accepting those views most likely to accomplish that goal. In our sesqui-centennial prayer we humbly give thanks to our Creator for the many blessings our country has received and for permitting us to be a part of a county so constituted. 'We pray that every- thing we do will add to the glory of its history. A .Meal QW We zzz Ill ,,..l.-.1 il- For Everyone an Education e!

A few of the policies are Herein state . Teacher hire was an important matter in 1850 at a summer-time meeting. A teacher for the female high school was elected at a monthly salary of S22.50. For the infant school a teacher was also elected, the salary to be 312.00 a month. HIGH STREET SCHOOL Early in 1852 a two-room school was established on High Street in a stone house owned by Mr. S. Fahnestock. It was decided also that the schools should be kept open regularly, including every Saturday morn- ing. The teacher's salary was reduced to S22 a month. Another decision was reached-school was to be opened in the morning with Scripture reading and closed in the afternoon with singing. The year 1854 brought about changes. Tuition rates were set up-seventy-five cents per month for each scholar, unless he was a high school student. Rates for them were 51.00. In September a committee of three was appointed to separate the sexes in the pri- mary schools. If the new plan worked satisfactorily, the same procedure was to be followed in the other school. The advisability of having four grades was also discussed. The 1854 annual report showed a decided improve- ment in school attendance. There were 233 boys and 209 girls in school. The male teachers numbered three, with an average monthly salary of S21.67. The female teachers numbered six, with an average salary of 81633. Attendance was a favorite topic in 1855. Any scholar absent from school one week out of four, except for sickness or a satisfactory reason, would lose his seat. By 1856 the directors planned to build a two-story school house with the two sexes in the same room. With this thought in mind two lots on High Street were purchased from Mr. Fahnestock for 5300. The first big building program got under way in 1857. Messrs. George and Henry Chritzman were awarded the contract to build the High Street School, cost to be 35,363 Prior to 1857 practically every house on High Street had served for school purposes. In 1858 borough schools were operating for all the youths of the town, including pupils whose parents F ma' Caste? resided in the borough, adopted children, indented apprentices, hired and bound servants.

THADDEUS STEVENS Thaddeus Stevens, the great statesman and Con- gressional leader lived in Gettysburg from 1816 to 1842. Although he was born in Vermont in 1792 and studied law at Dartmouth College, he practiced law in Gettysburg and was very active in the anti-Masonic movement locally and nationally. The name of his native county, Caledonia, was given to the iron furnace he founded on the road between Gettysburg and Charn- bersburg. "The Saviour of the Common Schools of Pennsyl- vanian deserves the gratitude of every resident of the Keystone State. WVhen Stevens made his classic speech in opposition to the repeal of the Common School Law of Pennsylvania in 1835, in the House of Representa- tives, he said "Take lofty ground-look beyond the narrow space which now circumscribes our vision- beyond the passing Heeting point of time on which we stand-and so cast our votes that the blessing of edu- catio11 shall be conferred on every son of Pennsylvania -shall be carried home to the poorest child of the poorest inhabitant of the meanest hut of your moun- tains, so that even he may be prepared to act well his part in this land of freedom, and lay on earth a broad and solid foundation for that enduring knowledge which goes increasing through increasing eternity." T HADDEU s STEVEN s The year before, the eloquent Stevens had made a memorable speech in defense of the Free Public School Act of 1834. At the same time he was serving as a member of Gettysburg's first school board. Wlien a group of men sought to obtain a charter for a new college, to be called Pennsylvania College of Gettysburg, Thaddeus Stevens was a member of that committee. When the future of the college was in grave doubt, because of poor financial support, it was Stevens who spoke for and assisted in getting an ap- propriation of 318,000 from the Pennsylvania State Legislature. Thaddeus Stevens was one of the most ardent advocates of the public school system in Pennsylvania. His argument was strong, his sarcasm, biting, He possessed an abundance of dry wit and his tongue cut like a razor. During his lifetime, his followers Could find no words strong enough to praise him, and his enemies, especially in the South, no language bitter enough to ridicule him. Although totally indifferent to fame and high office, Thaddeus Stevens has left his mark in Gettysburg and Adams Cou11ty. Stevens Hall on the Gettysburg College Campus, is named in his honor. LUTHERAN THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY In 1826 laws were approved and at the same time agents were appointed to collect contributions in the United States and Europe for the erection of the Sem- inary of the General Synod of the Evangelical Lu- theran Church in America. Choosing the place to build the Seminary was rather difficult-Hagerstown, Carlisle, Frederick and York all being considered along with Gettysburg. Weighiiig carefully all the advantages offered, the committee de- cided upon Gettysburg by unanimous vote. Dr. S. S. Schmucker, the first professor of the Sem- inary, was inaugurated as President on September 5, 1826, and among the ten subjects he taught were Greek, Hebrew, and Biblical interpretation. The first classes of the Seminary were held in the Adams County Academy building, at the southeast corner of Washingtoii and High Streets, where the Reuning families now reside. The Seminary began with S1,700, one professor, eight students and a small library. In two years the students increased from eight to twenty-three. A second professor was needed and hence Ernest I-Iazelius was inaugurated on September 29, 1830. Q K7 .

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISEMENT The elephant is not only the largest and wisest animal in the world, but from a peculiar manner in which it takes its food and drink of every kind with its trunk, is acknowledged to be the greatest natural curiosity ever offered to the public. She will lie down and get up at command, she will draw the cork from a bottle and with her trunk, will manage it in such a manner as to drink its contents. She is eleven years old and measures upward to fifteen feet from trunk to tail, ICI1 feet around the body, and eight feet high.

Hence, I wish for each of you a generous quantity of the spirit of optimism. But be not blinded by your spirit of optimism, for dangers threaten not only the foundation of our Country, but also of civilization. These dangers can be diminished in proportion as you, as indi- viduals, are willing to do the right thing by your- self, by your fellowmen, and by your Creator. Space does not permit me to enumerate here the ideals and attitudes you should adopt to guide you on life's journey. Neither is it necessary that I should do so, for I am satisfied that you already know them. Wlietlier you practice them in your daily living is entirely in your hands. My hope is that you may be guided by what is decent and proper. L. C. KEEFAUVER MR. GUILE W. LEEEVER, B.S., MS. High School Principal DR. LLOYD C. KEEFAUNIER, AB., A.M., EDD. Szfperintendelrzt of Schools To THE CLASS OF 1950: You are completing your high school Work this year at a time when the nation's labor supply equals the demand. This will mean that employ- ment will be secured by those who have prepared themselves and are willing to do the job. Our philosophy will have to change from what belongs to me to what do I owe? Our nation does not owe us a living, rather, it owes us the privilege of earning a living for our- selves. VV hen each individual is willing to keep himself, many of our nation's problems will be solved. G. W. LEFEVER Seven EVA D. BOWER English I, English II JOHN P.

Even before there was a county ,QQ known as Adams, a woman's name, synony- mous with courage and fairness, was proudly mentioned by early settlers. Likewise, today we hail countians whose contributions are recognized far be- yond the borders of the county and state. Space per- mits us to recognize but five of them. EDWARD McPHERSON The name of McPherso11 has long been identified with the progressive growth of this county. The men- folk of the McPherson clan. wise and faithful public servants, have furthered the interests of the county and countians on numerous occasions. An illustrious son of this well-known family was Honorable Edward McPherson C1830-18955, who served his country, his state and his county, both in government and journalism. In the field of government he served as deputy commissioner of Internal Revenue, Clerk of the National House of Representatives, and Chief of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. A mainstay in the Republican party, he served as editor of the Philadelphia. Press. Other editorial projects in- cluded the Handboole of Politics and the New York Tfribzmc Almanac. Although his duties frequently called him to New York, Philadelphia and Washington, Mr. McPherson came back as often as possible to his family and friends in Gettysburg, where he found relaxation from an arduous political life. MARY JEMISON Mary Iemison, born on the Atlantic Ocean in 1742, resided with her parents, two brothers and one sister at the head of Marsh Creek, in what is now known as Buchanan Valley, then a part of York County. When Mary was twelve, she was carried away from her home by the Indians who had massacred members of her family. Ten TQ? During her second year of captivity, Mary, now known as Deckewamis, since her adoption by the Indians. was married to a Delaware Indian, Sheninjee by name. In l759, Mary named her first-born child Thomas Jemison, i11 memory of her father. Her hus- band's death a few years later caused her deep sorrow. At the close of the French and Indian War, Mary could have returned to her white relatives and friends, since the victorious English were seeking to make this return possible. However, Mary refused the offer, claiming to prefer to live with the Indians who had shown her so much kindness and because she felt she could bring about a better understanding between the white race and the red by remaining with them. When Mary was twenty years of age, she married the fifty-five-year-old Seneca warrior, Hiokatoo. With him she lived happily for forty-eight years. Four daughters and two sons resulted from this marriage. Longevity seemed to mark this unusual marriage, Mary dying at the age of ninety-one and Hiokatoo at the age of one hundred three. A lovely statue has been erected to Mary Jemison's memory at St. Ignatius Church in Buchanan Valley by proud countians. Valley folks are happy to recall the sturdy pioneer girl, loved and respected by both white and red people. A similar statue has been erected to Mary Iemison at Letchworth State Park in the Iroquois Country of New York State in commemoration of her services i11 bringing about a mutual understanding between the two races. ELSIE SINGMASTER LEWARS One of the grand ladies now living in Gettysburg is Elsie Singmaster Lewars. Mrs. Lewars has been writ- ing novels a11d short stories for so many years right here in Gettysburg, that we unfailingly place her in the select group of well-known people. Countians are not too much concerned when "Miss Elsie" delves into our country's past history or lingers a while with the Pennsylvania Germans, for they know that the result will be a combination of good judgment, excellent English and interesting narrative. It is not unusual for Mrs. Lewars to use county events, county scenes and county people in her writ- ings. This she does with sympathy and understanding. The same fine spirit that puts such thoughts into print prompts her to participate unselfishly in such activities as the Lutheran Church, the Red Cross and the Adams County Library. DAVID WILLS David VVills was born in the year 1831, in Menallen township, a son of James Wills. David, a very aggres- sive young man, had his residence in a substantial, comfortable home on the southeast corner of the square of Gettysburg in 1863. This home was destined to be- come historically famous. It was to this house that President Abraham Lincoln came on November 18, 1863, by invitation of Mr. Wills. Today everyone knows that in one of Mr. Wills' bedrooms, finishing touches were put on a speech that was destined to be one of the masterpieces of its type in the English language. In addition to playing host to the president of the United States, Mr. Wills was a public-spirited man of great distinction. He was intensely interested in the establishment of a Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg, after he had done valiant civilian service in the trying days of July, 1863. After securing the help of Governor Curtin, he saw fit to further his ideas and secured others to help him put them into execu- tion. Moreover, it was l',ludge" Wills who personally invited Edward Everett, the acclaimed orator of the day, and Abraham Lincoln, the President of the United States, to speak at dedication exercises for the cemetery. A lawyer by profession, David W'i1ls served his town as burgess and his county as the first county super- intendent of schools. In the world of Finance, he served as a director of the Bank of Gettysburg. CHARLES MORRIS YOUNG Charles Morris Young, the famous landscape and portrait painter, was born in Adams County, not far from Gettysburg. Although Mr. Young is now resid- ing in Radnor, Pa., he spent much time in Gettysburg fifty or so years ago. Despite the fact that for art's sake he was called to Philadelphia or to Paris per- haps, he came back frequently to Gettysburg for a sojourn of several months and set to work in a rented studio. During these occasional visits, he put his brushes to work to portray on canvas well-known friends and familiar scenes. Under such circumstances he made the portrait of Honorable Edward McPherson, a copy of which appears on these pages. Fifty years ago Adams countians hailed the genius of Charles Morris Young and today local residents con- tinue to speak with pride of Mr. Young, whose paint- ings hang in many of the famed galleries of the world. GETTYSBURG'S FIRST AVIATOR Back in the good old days of Adams County our grandparents could readily recollect Gettysburg's first accom- plished aviator. Now, he was not a common aviator of the airplane of to- day, but of the first gas-filled balloon. It is related that this ambitious soul had paid fifty dollars to the man who was exhibiting this bit of aircraft for the privilege of standing in the basket of the balloon. After pondering over the situation the dissatisfied customer be- came angered at the fact that he was only allowed to stand in it. Then, act- ing on an impulse, he cut the cables which held the balloon stationary on the ground. Up, up, he went until he became a speck in the never-ending sky. Much to the amusement and amazement of the county, he and the balloon were discovered hours later in the neighboring county of York. . till! it Eleven Adams County Has A Glorious Past lama r4s Qiwwfsw as vi Q' 9 11111 f ' H 1 zsmswwusl RAYMOND FRANKLIN ALEXANDER "Ray" Agriculture Franklin High School, Frank- lin.

School friends and teachers will undoubtedly provide the personal element that makes such reminiscences enjoyable. Two of the leading hgures in this unwritten record of real people will be Miss Mundis and Mr. Sheads. Wfe shall be reminded that Dame Fortune smiled upon us, when she gave to us two such grand persons to bear with us in all our under- takings, From inexperienced First year students to experienced seniors having the graduation goal in sight, we knew where to go. Both of them were ready to advise us, work with us, and best of all encourage us, when our faint hearts were inclined to weaken. Many of the lessons learned from books will grow dim or vanish completely from our book of memories, but the inspiring example of Miss Mundis and Mr. Sheads will ever remain clear and true, and suggest to us the numerous ways that we can be helpful to others.

While red con- vertibles catch his eye, stuck-up girls and speed tests Hoor him. NANCY BEEGLE-Um, um, did someone mention fried chicken and spaghetti? Dancing, bowling, skating, and hunting really rate with this future coed. Maryland says, "You tell 'emg I stutterf' English speeches and Mountain William Music? ?

Thirty-three More About Schools AN OLD COUNTY SCHOOL any record was established at Christ Church M L m Union township about 1747 All the teach , .. ' ' ing was done in German. Reverend Michael Schlatter, a missionary to this country, taught in the school. The teacher of the school also served as the pastor of Christ Church. HE earliest county school of which there is 1 DOBBIN HOUSE The Dobbin House on Steinwehr Avenue. familiarly known as the "Old Stone House," is the oldest house in Gettysburg. Built in 1776 by Reverend Alexander Dobbin, it has been converted into an excellent museum with exhibits dating from colonial days as well as some of the present time. Having lived on a farm close to Gettysburg for three years, the thirty-year-old Scotch-Irish preacher of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church had the large stone house built on the outskirts of the little town. From 1776 to 18101 he maintained one of the first classical schools and theological seminaries west of the Susquehanna River and from the school went forth a number of youths to Dickinson College at Carlisle for further study. Among the classics that the Reverend Dobbin taught were Latin, Greek and Theology. Inasmuch as Mr. Dobbin forsook teaching for preaching. others operated the school for a period of twenty or so years. In addi- tion to housing a school, the house once served as a tavern, a church and later as a hospital during the battle days in 1863. There are twelve large rooms and a spring room in the old house. The wood used is mainly oak. There are chairs, boards, mantels, oaken partitions, twenty-inch walls, and doors on hinges handmade by the black- smith. The rafters are made of hewn logs. Some of the joists beneath the first floor are still covered with bark. There are unsealed ceilings and a stairway with an old-fashioned banister. The house boasts of seven tire- places. All this is in an excellent state of preservation, with a spring of sparkling water flowing through the flag- stone floor of the kitchen. Orations: The Students of the Rev. Alexander Dobbin heartily solicit the Public to favor them with their attendance, at Gettysburg, on Tuesday. the 12th of May next, where they hope to enter- tain them with some short DISCOURSES on Thirty-four CNQD interesting and amusing subjects-To begin at half past 10 olclock, a.m. April 29, 1801 Students A School-The Public are respectfully informed that at School has opened in Gettysburg, Baltimore Street, in which School Con moderate termsj will be taught Sewing, Flowering, etc. In the conduct of thc school, thc utmost attention will be paid to accuracy, and expedition in the pnpils progress, by Anne Carry Gettysburg, May 4, 1801. CThese advertisements appeared in the ADAMS CENT1N1sL.J PENNSYLVANIA COLLEGE OF GETTYSBURG Privately owned schools in Gettysburg were not un- common in the early 1S00's. Educators had various ob- jectives in their training programs. But no individual was more zealous than Samuel S. Schmucker, the first professor of the Lutheran Theological Seminary. De- scribed as the "best educated man i11 the Lutheran Church of Americaf' he had real genius for leader- ship and organization. Because of his untiring efforts, Dr. Schmucker is recognized as the founder of "Pennsylvania College of Gettysburg." This college, established April 7, 1832, by law, was fostered by the German Lutheran element of Pennsylvania. Consequently the first term opened on November 7 of the sa1ne year with sixty-three students. OLD DORM It was not until 1834 that Dr. Charles Phillip Krauth took office as the iirst president of the new institution of learning. Land for the college grounds was pur- chased in 1835 from Thaddeus Stevens. In October. 1837, on these grounds was erected the first college building, "Pennsylvania Hall," more commonly referred to as "Old Dorm." Throughout the years this college, Gettysburg Col- lege since 1921, has contributed generously to the cul- tural life of the town and county. Dr. Henry VV. A. Hanson, the president, upholds the tradition of the early leaders-to educate young folks for Christian living. AARON SHEELY'S SCHOOL Mr. Aaron Sheely, superintendent of the common schools of Adams County for a period of about thirty years, had his place of residence and school rooms on the southeast corner of Wasliiiigton and VVest Middle Streets. The primary purpose of the school was to train young men and women for teaching in the schools of the county. It is not surprising to note that Mr. Sheely generally had from forty-tive to sixty in his classes, for in those days many young folks would teach a year or so in the rural schools before entering business or one of the professions. i4 Enrollment was highest at the so-called spring term, directly after the closing of the rural schools in March or April. One could attend for as many months as he desired and he could choose the subjects that would best fit his needs. Among the subjects from which he could choose were English, spelling, algebra, and physiology. The qualifications for teaching were not too exacting. The would-be teacher had to be eighteen years of age and his average for the final public school examination had to be seventy-five per cent or over. The next step was to take an examination at the time and place des- ignated by Mr. Sheely. If he passed the examination, he received a teaching certificate from the superintend- ent. If he failed the examination he had to repeat the course and submit to an examination a second time. In Mr. Sheely's school, well-known sixty or more years ago, students were rated with the numbers-one, two, and three. A number one pupil was a good scholar, a number two pupil an average scholar and a number three pupil was a poor scholar. fC011fi7ZltUd Ou Page 98D A! -it Q A30 rx -Ag SO-O-O-O TALL Many very tall stories were told about the county concerning the famous Civil VVar. Related in the following paragraph is a favorite among the countians. A Confederate sharpshooter had a very enviable position among the jagged rocks of Devi1's Den, and a Union sharpshooter had the same at Little Round Top. Expertly shooting away at each other for a few hours the two marksmen began wondering why neither of them was wounded or killed. Proceeding once again to fire away they soon be- came tired of the monotonous pastime. Raising a quaking white Hag of truce, the one sharpshooter started making hislway to the other's position. Likewise the other followed suit. Stumbling straight to the mid-point of cross- nre, to their complete surprise they discovered a mass of bullets wedged solidly together at their feet.

EDDIE PLANK If at any time there is a question of the great pitchers in the realm of baseball, one is sure to hear men- tioned the name of Eddie Plank, born a few miles from Gettysburg. This southpaw, who pitched for the Get- tysburg College nine about fifty years ago, was hired by Connie Mack, in 1901, to be one of the Philadel- phia Athletics' pitchers. During eight seasons he won more than twenty games a season-a Hue record for one who pitched for the American League throughout sixteen seasons. The rec- ords show that he tallied 283 victories for the Ath- letics while playing for his good friend Connie Mack. Eddie played with six of Connie's championship teams, but appeared in only four World Series' classics. The athlete closed his professional ball playing days as a pitcher for the St. Louis Terriers. His victories totaled 325. At the time of his death in 1926, Eddie Plank and his brother Ira were operating a garage in Gettysburg. High honor was paid to him in 1947, when he was given zpgace in baseball's Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, 1 . .

ADAMS CENTINEL advertisement of July 2, 1806. McCLELLAN HOUSE Even before the borough of Gettysburg and the county of Adams were recognized as such. a tavern occupied the northeast corner of the square in Gettys- burg. A few years after the Revolution, the weary traveler journeying by stage or horseback, found food and shelter at the same site where travelers find ac- commodations today. The name of McClellan has been identified with this historic inn for the longest period of time. It was in 1809 that William McClellan purchased from the ad- F arty-four Nw miuistrators of the estate of James Scott, the first postmaster of Gettysburg, 'fcommodious houses chiefly of brick, with extensive stabling and sheds." For a period of more than seventy-five years this establish- ment was to be known as the McClellan House. It is apparent that Mr. William McClellan was an innkeeper by profession, since he formerly had been the landlord of the Black Horse Tavern, at Marsh Creek. A young attorney, Thaddeus Stevens, came to the "Gettysburg Hotel" in 1816 and rented rooms from Mr. Frederick Keefer and later from Mr. Michael Troxell. These gentlemen probably leased the hotel from members of the McClellan family. Most picturesque of the McClellan clan was "Colo- nel" John McClellan, whose interests were so varied as to include town welfare, balloon ascensions and horses. Town policies were shaped at the McClellan House when "Colonel" john's friends-Judge Wills, Honorable David McConaughy, Doctors Robert and Charles Horner-would assemble outside on balmy summer evenings or around the open fire on winter evenings. Other familiar names associated with the manage- ment of the hotel are Diller and Zinn. Kinfolk of these persons continue to reside in Gettysburg. Many notables have signed their names on the guest register, such as Daniel 1rVebster, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone. Today we have the HOTEL GETTYSBURG, so called for more than Fifty years. Since 1914 members of the Scharf family have been managing this modern hostelry, which still serves the traveling public and furnishes headquarters for important occasions. Tavern-The sulbseriIJer respectfully informs the public in general, that he has rented the house lately occupied by Colonel James Gettys, on York Street, Gettysburg, and having supplied himself with liquors of the best quality, good hay and having stabling, together with an attentive hostler -therefore hopes, that those whom it may please to favor him with their custom will receive general satisfaction. James Cobean Advertisement in ADAINIS CENTINEL of April 13, 1801. WEE WILLIE SHERDEL "Wee Willie" Sherdel, whose place of birth is Mid- way, Adams County, found baseball pitching and catching in McSherrystown, Hanover and Gettysburg the answer to what he enjoyed doing most back in 1914 and 1915. On his way up to the big leagues he played with Milwaukee, of the American Association, in 1916 and 1917. For thirteen years, starting in 1919, he played with the St. Louis Cardinals, helping that team to win a pennant in 1926. The year 1925, when he led the national .league in percentage, was Sherdel's best year. In relating a few of his past experiences, the countian avers that "Babe" Ruth was the greatest left-hand hitter to face him. On the other hand, it is said that the "Bambino" hated Sherdel's slow ball. After two years with the Boston Braves, Sherdel called a halt to professional ball playing and came back to McSherrystown to engage in business. GETTYSBURG FIRE DEPARTMENT In the year 1808 residents of Gettysburg were alert to the need of protecting their properties from the destructive forces of fire. The equipment was crude- buckets, axes and hooks. The success of the enterprise must have been dependent upon the numbers and in- dustry of the members of the fire-fighting organization. In 1822 the borough fathers ordered that a new fire house be built. The weatherboard structure, painted black and white, was twenty-eight feet long, eight feet wide and twelve feet high. The new home for fire apparatus, according to records, stood next to Widoxxf Chamberlain's lot. The site must have been on York Street, close to Evans' store. The first engine, named "Guard', was purchased in July, 1830. Perhaps the original structure did not meet the needs of the newly purchased piece of equipment, for the engine house was sold this same year for 512. From the Sprig of Liberty--The town' council of Gettysburg, we imderstcmd, has laid ri tax of 50 cents per annum on every dog, and two dollars on every dogis' wife. PAUL SIEBER 'fPolly" Sieber, who was a resident of Gettysburg in the early 19'00's. brought an honor to the college town that has never been repeated. In the years 1906 and 1907, Gettysburg College's most distinguished athlete was mentioned on VValter Camp's All-American football team. fC0l1fI1HlL'd on Page 981 1 STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD A curious epitaph can be found i11 Round Hill cemetery located in Reading township, near Hampton, which reads as follows: In Memory of Samuel Hodge. Birth unknown, Died March 17, 1783. "The strongest man that ever lived on earth At last did quietly yeild up his breath, This fate is sure to all, to you and I, Come then prepare for death before you The circumstance back of the above epitaph is given as follows :-Previous to the Revolutionary War there lived a strong man in Cumberland County who learning of the great strength of Hodge, decided to challenge him to a fistic encounter. With this purpose in view he arrived at Hodge's home and inquired of Mrs. Hodge where he might find her husband. He was directed to a nearby place where he found Mr. Hodge busy mak- ing cider. He thereupon told Mr. Hodge of his desire to engage in a fistic combat. He was in- formed by Mr. Hodge that it was a foolish proposition but to satisfy him he would fight. Mr. Hodge then proposed that they take a drink of cider before the encounter. Mr. Hodge then picked up a huge barrel of cider and drank from the bung hole, after which he handed the barrel to his opponent, who after seeing this exhibition of strength decided not to engage in any fighting.

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION ACTIVITIES Each spring members of the Girls' Athletic Association are given awards which are based on the number of points each member has accumulated by participation in the various sports. When a girl has acquired twenty-five points, she receives a minor G 5 fifty points, a class numeral, and one hun- dred points, a major G.

Suzanne I A mari gt V A PV A Fifty-seven MID-CENTURY MEDLEYS THOMAS HESS-Show-offs and girls who wear colored stockings displease this lad who goes for sports, chili con carne, and guns. Tom says "I don't know," but hopes to travel through the states. EILEEN KANE-This lass turns away from reck- less drivers and gossipy persons. "Good 'nough" re- plies "Link" who has a love for dramatics, red hair, and her trip to Indiana University. LINN KEPNER-"Kep" plans his future in the Army Air Force. His likes range from orchestra music to girls, while he dislikes stuck-up people. He often declares "Prove it!" MARLIN KESSEL-A future college grad, "Kess" is ecstatic over hunting, music, and "good grub," while he thinks gossipers are even worse than know-it-all girls. He hopelessly utters "Oh no!" BETTY KETTERMAN-"Oh, my word!" re- marks "Ket" over conceited people and heels with socks. She plans a secretarial future. Her senior year, sports, and hamburgers thrill her. BETTY KIME-Movies, "shoe-strings," and grilled cheese fascinate this future secretary who's always laughing. "Oh, my cow," moans "Kimie" over two- faced people. CHARLES KITZMILLER-Another future serv- ice man, "Kitz" will take a good hard game of foot- ball any day, but can't stand people who feel they are too good for other folks. And, he asks, "How about that?" DOROTHY KLINEFELTER- Griping people and users of big words don't rate with "Dotty." This future secretary delights in hamburgers, roller skating, and Baby Ruths-"Oh, my gosh!" ROBERT KRICK-"Mole" looks forward to col- lege or the service. "Gee 'zow" may show his like for ice cream, basketball, and swimming or his dislike for stuck-up people and "ole" man winter. LEO KUHN-"Pete" is recognized by his red hair. His future is in the U. S. Air Force. "How about that !" He thinks sports, cars, and good eats are super. Women smoking? WAYNE KUMP-A business man! "I can't help it," emphasizes "Kumpie," "I don't like girls who smoke." He "sure" does like "purty" girls and new cars. Fifty-eight WILLIAM KUMP-His nickname is 'fBill." Eng- lish in general doesn't agree with a very ambitious future fruit farmer who, by the way, is nuts about hunting. EDWINA LAWVER-Volleyball, and cocoanut devil's food cake plus seven minute frosting have a special place with "Eddie" who announces "Oh, buck- ets!" at girls who swear. Future is undecided. ALFRED LEVAN-"Hi, Mac," greets "Allie," whose future is going to be in plumbing. This "rhythm mastern has a grudge against girls and school. Sleep- ing, eating, and dance jobs are his specialty. ARLENE LEWIS-Sometimes called "Louie," our dramatist loves steak and mashed potatoes, singing, and Fords. "It ain't easy," for this smiling lass to be around hillbilly music and boastful insincere people. BARBARA LITTLE-"You know," says "Skip" who "sure" likes fried chicken, swimming, sports and her freshman year. She has a home life on her mind with no room for snobbish people. SIDNEY LOCK-College beckons Sidney, who de- tests chemistry tests but thrills over driving, sports, and good jokes. "How about that P" questions this red-head lad. JACQUELINE LONG-"Jackie" simply can't stand unsystematic people, but is crazy about sports, cherry cokes, and journalism. The crystal ball sees our editor of the Maroon and White in governmental work. "That's for sure l" JEWELLE LOWE-"Judy" cold shoulders griping people and chocolate ice cream, but thinks kittens and cocoanut cream pie are scrumptious. She asks "No kiddin'?" The stars foretell another civil service "gal." JUNE MCDANNELL-Dancing and spaghetti ap- peal to this miss who dislikes discourteous boys. "For Pete's sake!" says June who has a dress shop or sec- retarial work on her agenda. ROSE McINTYRE-Attending York Junior Col- lege is the future for "Mac" who is disgusted with speeches and gossipers. She's mighty pleased over V.M.'s and bananas. "There, I've said it again!" JANET MCKENNEY-This busy miss is going to stage a college career. "Jan" says, "Oh, for heaven's sake !" about chemistry experiments. She enjoys swim- ming, clothes, and ice cream.

The county, ' named Adams after the President of the United States, was at one time the western part of York County. It was on January 22, 1800, that official recognition was given to this struggling county that was in a few years to be known as the "poor buck- wheat county," but which in the twentieth century was to gain international renown as a fruit growing and fruit rocessin center. g Governor Thomas McKean pointed three commissioners on October 2, 1800, ap- to run and mark the dividing line between the counties. :-:-:':5:5:-:-:-:7:5:2:IyIg2gZgig:-I-2-:-14:-1317115:?:7:5:5:C:! . .i:?:5:5:?:3:I'?'I+:-:Q . , :Ig255:-:-2-'-:-5-23'5:1:5-1-2gt-I4-:-:-1-:r:iz-2-:5:1:C:7:1:3:7:I::4:: '5:52f:f:3:Q:f:f:3:2:I:Ig2gZ4:g:g:3Q::: county. There rest many of the pioneers who blazed the trail, fought the Indians and cleared the primeval forest. THE ADAMS CENTINEL The lirst issue of "The Adams Centineln was pub- lished on Wedilesday, November 19, 1800, by Robert Harper. Sr., whose slogan was "Truth, Our Guide- 'lhe Public Good, Our Aim." At one time the editor stated "that the establishment of a printing press in the county is a convenience as well as a benef1t." At another time Mr. Harper declared l'The Centinel is published upon fair and liberal principles-it is not the friend of Royalty, Aristocracy or Jacobinism-a pure Republican spirit will ever preside over its pages." v 9 7 -:-:::4:-1':-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-gr5.1:gz5:i:-:-:4:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:I511:1.2'-'----V:-:iz-:-:Az-:.:4:1g-51.g:g:g:g:::-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-z1:I:-:2:-:I5:g.:cz:-:-:A:-:-:-:izV:A:-:-:.:1g.::g.g:::f:::::,. .. . . . ,Ig.1:5:5:I:3:Zagg:-:-:-:A:-:-:.11gi5.51:::5:I:1:1:I:-zz:V:-:Z:':-:-:-:-:41rg-1.1.g.g:g:g.5I.5:g:::I:zz5,:-:+:iz-:-:-:1:A:-3-:Ig-g2g:1:g:7:3:g:,:,.,. . :-:- -'::5:3:::1:55:g:Z:I:-:fc-:.:.:.5:::,.:::.,:51 -:-:-:-:f:1:2:5:C:1:1:Zz2:2:5:2:!g:-:-:iz2:-:-:-:I:f:f:f:5:F:5:2:fg:-:-:': -:1:F:f:I:1:I:I11-I+:-:-:-:-:-:2:i:5:I:1:7:2:5:51f:1:C:2:2115::::3:3:ggi:5:f:f12:35:Ez2:2:1grg:g:g:::3:::1:E:f:2 , ,..:5:2:QQgg:gr::3:5::52:5:2:2:Z:2:5cf:Q:Q1IgIg2g::1::1:::3:5:2::z5:Z:I:I:5:2:I5:rg:5Ig:gz:rg:3:1zz:::55:gzg:::::5:5:5:2:51-:1:f:2:5:I:ig2:2gtg:g:g:g:3:::::::g:5:g -:-:1:1:Isi:-:-:F:--I11-212-211-2g:g:g:::::::5 -I-I-I-I-I-I-I-1-:-:-:-24:-:-:-:-5:1123 2-Z'I-:-:-:':-:A:-:- -2-:-za:-:3:3:3:5:3:5:3:!1Z-:':v:,:-:A:-.

LOW DUTCH GRAVEYARD During the years from 1765 to 1775 colonies of Dutch from New York alld New Jersey emigrated to Conewago. About two miles east of Hunterstown is the a11cient burial place of these pioneers, The name "Old Low Dutch Graveyard" l1as been given to their' final resting place. Today the "Low Dutch Roadn be- tween the York and Baltimore Pikes marks the region of their settlement. Located .near the geographical center of Adams County, lt is one of the oldest burying grounds in the Sixty After the first few issues, publication of the paper was suspended for three weeks, but apparently public patronage improved sufficiently to assure Mr. Harper of the support he expected. Later "The Centinel" com- bined with "The Star" and now a century and a half later countians are familiar with the weekly "Star and Sentinel." Tradition declares that the first "Centinels" were printed on an old Ramage press, which now has a place of honor in the Franklin Institute, at Philadelphia. Thus our county has had a newspaper continuously since the year of its creation. BANK OF GETTYSBURG-GETTYSBURG NATIONAL BANK The first board of directors of the Bank of Gettys- burg was elected in the court house on May 26, 1814. The thirteen directors of the First board were Robert Hayes, Andrew Will, Alexander Cobean, James Gettys, Walter Smith, Ralph Lashells and Jacob Eyster, from Gettysburgg Amos McGinley, from Millerstowng Bern- hart Gilbert, from Littlestowng Michael Slagle, from Conowagog John Jackson, from Strabang William Vtfiernian, from Latimore and William Reed, from Emrnitsburg. At this meeting it was determined to conduct the banking business in the house of John B. McPherson on York Street in the town of Gettysburg. The same evening Colonel Alexander Cobean was elected presi- dent and john B. McPherson, Esq., cashier. Mr. Mc- Pherson served as cashier for forty-four years. The state charter, under which the bank operated, was surrendered in 1865. The Gettysburg National Bank was thereupon organized with the following officials: Directors: Henry VVirt, 'William D. Himes, William Young, James G. Wills, George Swope, Lewis M. Motter, Marcus Samson and David Kendlehartg Presi- dent, George Swopeg Cashier, T. D. Carsong Teller, John H. McClellan and Secretary, Henry Wirt. CC07'ZfiH1lL'd on Page 985 I fig HE WASN'T A PEACEABLE MAN A committee of Correspondence of the Two Taverns Anti-slavery meeting called a county meeting to assemble in the court house of Gettysburg, on December 3, 1836. One o'clock Saturday of this date found the ugly old court house in the Square familiarly known as the Diamond, the scene of a vast crowd. The meeting was called to order by the chairman. A motion was made for the formation of an Anti-slavery Society for Political Work. Then the fireworks began! A young lawyer presented an argument that it was inexpedient and im- proper to petition Congress to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia and the United States territories. Now, if a peaceful man had been in the chair perhaps the substitution would have been declared out of order. But, it was held by a man with a fiery temper. The discussion waxed fast and furious. The abolitionists became hoarse with rage. Boos and jeers were heard and oaths, and whistles arose from the crowd. Several anti-slavery leaders were wearing high silk hats. These hats were too conspicuous a target not to attract the attention of some of the members of the tumultuous throng. The eggs began to fly! One partial wag had secured the carcass of a very defunct feline, and had hurled it at a stalwart abolitionist's hat. His aim was true, and the cat was kneaded together on the floor under the feet of the struggling crowd. This ended the meeting at the court house on December 3, 1836. Later that day a few scholarly men of the town finished the organization work in a hotel I'OO1'I1.

Seventy-three OUR HEARTS WERE YOUNG AND GAY Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimbrough are determined to pursue courses in France in order to further their youthful ambitions. Cornelia aspires to be a celebrated actress, while Emily desires to be a famous dancer. On board ship Dick and Leo, medical students, become close friends of Cornelia and Emily. These young men help to make the crossing a more thrilling one than might have been experienced, had the girls gone the conventional way with Mr. and Mrs. Otis Skinner. En route to Europe. the two happy-go-lucky girls learn that each has been given a money belt to wear. These purses cause much excitement at un expected moments. Enjoyable comedy is provided by Emily's hitting a man overboard with a deckchair. Add to that a surprise attack of measles on board ship, a wat er heater explosion in a Parisian hotel, and clothes of the 1920 period. The fall play, presented by the Mask and Wig, will be remembered as one filled with delightful comedy. Cornelia Skinner ...... Otis Skinner ......

Helen, Kay's mother, has all arrangements made for the wedding and reception by the time Joe and his brother Don, who is to be best man, arrive for the wedding. Sixteen-year-old Sally, a l'bug" on psychology, knows that Joe is Wrong for Kay. Sally success- fully psychoanalyzes Gladys Mullen, the comical hired girl, and sets out to break up Kay's wedding. Her goal is to leave an opening for Charley Bak er, Kay's high school boy friend. Aided by beauti- ful, blonde Vickie Blake, Don and Charley, Sally thoroughly disrupts the entire household. Sally places Joe in a situation where he has to reveal his true colors. Finally Kay has to admit that she's made a mistake in refusing to marry Charley. In reality Charley is a most charming and amusing young man. Although Sally's application of psychology is slightly confusing, everything works out satisfactorily. The spring play, presented by the senior class, was a most enjoyable comedy with a side-split- ting conclusion. CAST Sally Ford ......... Helen Ford ........ Vickie Blake .........

Eighty-one Adams Count at ork IN THE past century and a half many changes i 1 L have proved practical in Adams County As ,ima one reviews the occupations that at one time ' furnished a livelihood to local residents, he realizes that scientists and inventors have caused far- reaching changes to be made in town and rural busi- nesses. have taken place. in -the industries which MCALLISTERJS MILL MILLS IN ADAMS COUNTY Early settlers in Adams County soon found spots along the several creeks where mills might operate successfully. A few of them are listed here. About 1738 Hans Martin Kitzmiller built a log mill near the headwaters of the Little Conewago. In 1773 the heirs of Michael Will sold the "farm and improve- ments" in Union township, containing a grist mill, to jacob Will. In 1777 Francis Knauss built a mill one-half mile east of Arendtsville. About 1795 James Range built a hemp and chopping mill a mile from New Oxford, on the Little Conewago. In 1796 John Wright sold to Michael Minick a saw mill, located about one mile from Bendersville. Harry Snyder built the first mill at the junction of the Upper Conewago and Opossum Creeks in 1798. Around the year 1800 David Pfoutz built a cording mill below the forks of Big and Little Marsh Creeks. Enlarging the mill, he carried on the fulling and dyeing operations in connection with the cording. In 1809 Christopher Hershey bought from Alexander Cobean land in Cumberland township, surveyed by Moses McClean, on which there was a stone grist and saw mill. CARRIAGE INDUSTRY It is an accepted fact that in the year 1818 in an old shed in Gettysburg, there were two men busily en- gaged at repairing stage coaches. On occasions the sale of a new stage made the small industry a profit- able one. About the same time the coach works of David Getz on North Baltimore Street were so well patronized that he advertised on cards "Orders executed in any part of the United States or elsewhere." By 1831, mainly on Middle Street, ten or eleven shops, devoted to the various branches of the carriage- making industry were employing one hundred thirty Eighty-two QDQ workmen. This industry, considered the town's chief industry. flourished until the time of the Civil War, with the carriages sold mainly in Maryland and Vir- ginia. The outbreak of the war destroyed the southern market and led to the decline of this industry in Get- tysburg. JOHN STUDEBAKER In the year 1830, there lived near I-Iunterstown, in a newly-built brick house, the English and German speaking family of John Studebaker, newly arrived from York County. A third son, John Mohler Stude- baker, was born in 1833, at a time when the black- smith and carriage making business was providing only a hand-to-mouth existence. For apparent reasons the family of five left the environs of Gettysburg in the year 1835 in a com- modious Conestoga wagon built by the elder Stude- baker, to take up residence in Ashland, Ohio. The Conestoga wagon was used again for a journey to the VVestg this time the year is 1851 and the stop- ping-off place is South Bend, Ind. The father had already made an exploring trip on horseback three years before. Two wagons were made by Henry and Clem Stude- baker in 1852, but the next year young john, driving a wagon made with his own hands left for the West. where in California, in a hve year period, he amassed a small fortune of 358,000 making wheelbarrows for prospectors in search of gold. STUDEBAKER FORGE Back in South Bend at the age of twenty-four, John bought out his brother I-Ienry and allied himself with his brother Clem in the wagon business. Eventually all five brothers were interested financially in the Stude- baker lirm and the horseless carriage was rivaling the wagon in the enlarged business firm. The life story of John Mohr Studebaker is typical of the "Young American makes good" in the business world. Although he died in 1917, his sound business practices are brought to mind every time a Studebaker whizzes by. TANNERIES The tanneries did a line business both in Gettysburg and Adams County. The larger tanneries were built about 125 years ago, but the smaller ones were built many years before that. James Gettys, Mr. Winebrenner, and Samuel S. Forney had tanneries in Gettysburg. James Hill was engaged in the same business in Fairfield and Isaac Thomas had a tannery in Menallen Township. SILKWORM INDUSTRY Silkworms were raised' by a few growers in Adams County. The growth of the silkworm was a rather popular undertaking for a period of about thirty years. During the battle of Gettysburg, the worms starved. The death of the worms brought to a sudden end the dreams of those who had been engaged in a rather profitable industry, starting about 1830. Soon after the battle some citizens purchased "Mauris Multicaulisu seeds in Philadelphia and planted them along the Baltimore Pike. They later sold the young trees to Mr. Sherfy, who in turn replanted them south of the Peach Orchard. These trees were unable to stand the rigor of Adams County winters and soon died. FRUIT GROWING INDUSTRY When Noah Sheely, of Hilltown, went to the World's Fair held at Chicago in 1893, he did a far-reaching job of publicizing Adams County apples. His efforts suc- ceeded that same year to the extent of selling 5,000 barrels of apples at 81.50 a barrel, the iirst big sale of Adams County fruit. Wholesale planting of apple trees started in 1875 when Andrew Koser and C. I. Tyson set out tw: blocks of ten acres each of apple trees in Quaker Val- ley. Noah Sheely had planted twenty-three acres in apple trees about 1881 and about the same time Samuel Bream gave eight acres of his land to the growth of apple trees. In time the growth of cherry and peach trees proved practical. Nowadays this part of Pennsylvania is pop- ularly referred to as the "Fruit Belt." ADAMS COUNTY COMMUNITIES BEFORE 1800 Himterstown was established about 1750 by David Hunter, who came from Ireland in 1741. It was known as "Woodstock" in early years and about the close of the last century was known as "Straban Center." M cShe1'ryst0wn was founded in 1763 by Patrick Mc- Sherry, one of the earliest settlers in Adams County. East Berlin was settled by John F rankengerger, who named it Berlin when he laid out the town on May 8, 1764. The first English school in the county was opened here in 1764. Littlestown, known as the "Dutch Plateau," was laid out in 1765 by Peter Klein and was first called Peters- burg. Gettysburg was laid out in 1780 by James Gettys, proprietor. On March 10, 1806, it became by law an incorporated borough. This borough boasted of a post office, a store and a blacksmith shop. C ashtown got its name from the word "Cash," which people around there always believed in. In 1791 an inn was built in this community. N ew Oxford was surveyed in 1792 by James Bolton. L , ., IS f' 4 6, .L "J X I ffff'-Y-'i THADDEUS' TAPEWORM VIADUCT The only visible remains of this viaduct are located near Iron Springs in Hamiltonban Town- ship and this is the only portion now in existence of the once grandiose project of Thaddeus Stevens. Into this flowed S750,000 of the money of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for a projected railroad from Gettysburg to Waynesboro without even a single rail or tie being laid. Only the splendid arches of the viaduct still remain to be seen. It was called the TAPEWORM Railroad for two reasons: C15 its zig-zag course meandered fifty-eight miles over the mountains and touched all of Stevens' mining properties instead of following a straight course for thirty-four miles between the towns g C25 also because like the worm it was named after, it was a "great consumer" of state appropriations.

Milne, Mgr. Ni1zety-SUW11 Foundations in Politics ancl Religion CContinned from Page 615 A COUNTY SEAT IS CHOSEN The most fiourishing settlement of the new county, by reason of its location and population of almost 700 was Gettys-town, named for its founder, James Gettys, who had laid out the town in 1780. In the years preced- ing 1787 James Gettys's father referred to this village as "Marsh Creek Settlement." On the erection of Adams County, the Gettys settle- ment was chosen as the seat of justice, inasmuch as James Gettys had the sagacity to lay out his town in building lots, and had offered a site for the 11ew county's court house. The act of the Legislature authorized the levy of a tax for the construction of county buildings and desig- nated the village for the first time as Gettysburg. How- ever, before the decision was made, Hunter's Town had a favorable chance of obtaining the honor. OLD COURT House IN THE SQUARE GREATER CONEWAGO PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH Four miles northeast of Gettysburg, near Hunters- town, stands an historic, moss-covered stone church, the Greater Conewago Presbyterian Church, named from the Conewago Creek that flows nearby. Although the date of the organization of this church cannot be determined accurately, it was no doubt organized about the time of the settlement of the Scotch-Irish in this part of the county. The earliest authentic record dates from 1740. The first church erected by this congregation was built between the years of 1743 and 1749. The structure, built of logs, stood near the site of the present church. In 1786 the old log church gave way to the present stone edifice, which shows by the architectural design that for more than 150 years it has served as a meet- ing place for those who come to worship God. Al- though the mosses of successive years have gathered on the foundation stones of the church, the walls ap- pear as firm and perfect as those of a recently built structure. About one hundred years ago the church underwent some changes. The entrance was changed from the side to the end. A vestibule and a choir gallery were added and the old goblet-shaped pulpit with its sound- ing board was replaced by one of a more modern design. In 1863, during the battle of Gettysburg, the church served as a hospital for the enemy wounded. To those seeking for records of early settlers of Ninety-eight this community, the burial ground furnishes a rich store of information. D Death Notice: On Sunday morning last de- parted this life, after an indisparitiozz of two years. which he bore with Christian patience and resigna- tion, Mr. fanzes King, aged 32 years. In him so- ciety is bereft of an agreeable menzber. He has left a wife and two children to nzonrn the early loss of an- affectionate husband ana' tender parent. On Sunday his remains were interred in the Pres- byterian burying ground at Hnntemtozwz. ADAMS CENTINEL, October 7, 1801. Wig? More About Schools CC0ntinned from Page 355 GETTYSBURG'S FIRST PUBLIC SCHOOL ' BUILDING On Carlisle Street where Doctor Donley's house is to be found today once stood a well known log school building, erected more than one hundred years ago. The school was ideally located-at the juncture of the Mummasburg, Carlisle and Harrisburg roads. A newspaper notice stated the original purpose of the building. September 28, 1832 We, the Subscribers, agree to pay to a Treasurer, hereafter to be appointed by us, S25 for each share of stock subscribed by us for the purpose of erecting a School House, in the borough of Gettysburg, to be occupied as an English School, and rented to the most approved Teacher at a sum not exceeding seven per cent on the original cost or capital invested. Mr. McClean, John Garvin, Robert Smith, T. Stevens, T. C. Miller, D. Horner, J. L. Fuller, Wm. McClellan, S. Fahnestock, S. H. Buehler, Dickey Sz Himes, A. G. Miller, Jas. A. Thompson, Wm. S. Cobean, T. I. Cooper, S. S. Schmucker, Danner 81 Ziegler, John B. McPherson, Esq. The rise and growth of Pennsylvania College and its Preparatory Department in time eliminated the need for such a school, but the building was destined to continue to serve for educational purposes. The provisions of the Free School Act of 1834 re- quired that a school and teachers be maintained for Gettysburg children. The wisdom of establishing the first borough public school in this Carlisle Street loca- tion cannot be questioned. This structure was used for public school purposes until the school directors of the borough built the present High Street School on East High Street. QQ Serving the Public fC0ntinned from Page 45, His athletic record reads much like fiction. During his college days, he was a member of the varsity foot- ball, basketball and baseball teams every one of the four years. When Paul graduated in 1908, he had the distinction of serving as captain for the 1906 and 1907 football teams, as well as for the 1906 and 1907 basket- ball teams. It is interesting to note what the future held for this well-known and well-liked Gettysburg athlete whom the older folks still talk about. An occasional visitor to Gettysburg, he is now Doctor Paul Sieber, of Pitts- burgh. Also he is considered one of the finest brain surgeons in the vicinity of that city.
