Snakes In The Borough


Herald of June 22, 1944

That snakes are plentiful this summer is well known to Borough Officer Ralph S. Bowers, who visited the Herald office on Thursday afternoon and displayed a rattlesnake that he had shot at the town’s reservoir. It measured over 36 inches and had six rattles and a button. Officer Bowers visits the reservoir every day or so and goes prepared to kill snakes if he sees them. So far this season he has shot several but this was the first rattler, and he wishes to warn the people hiking in the woods this year to be on the lookout for snakes.

Serving somewhere in France is Sgt. Chester E. Corle, son of Mr. and Mrs. Chester B. Corle of Baltimore, formerly of New Enterprise. The young man is an aerial gunner on a B-25 and went across in the last of March, 1944. He is a grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Albert B. Replogle of New Enterprise and of Joseph Corle. Sergeant Corle graduated from the J. L. Replogle High School at New Enterprise in 1942 and later went Baltimore where he was employed at the Glenn L. Martin works until inducted into service.
