100 Years Ago


January 30, 2020

Herald of Jan. 30, 1920

Opening an intensive army recruit drive in this county to extend over the present week, Sergeant Luther Jones, in charge of the Altoona recruiting station, received a squad of helpers from Harrisburg Monday morning and sent them out to establish temporary stations in Blair county towns during the drive period. Sergeant Tom Tullor is stationed at Claysburg, Corporal Agustus G. Goldstein has charge of the station at Williamsburg and Private First Class Henry R. Gray is in charge of the Martinsburg office.

A jolly party of young people journeyed from Leamersville to Martinsburg Wednesday evening of last week, and were entertained at the home of Harry Greenleaf. A very enjoyable time was had, and at a late hour luncheon was served.

Friends of Julian Mock gave a party in his honor at the home of Mr. and Mrs, D.W. Seedenberg, on Wednesday evening. It was a farewell party, as Julian was leaving with his parents on Thursday for their new home in Altoona. Games and music were enjoyed throughout the evening.
