Woodbury Play A Big Hit

Herald of April 18, 1924

The comedy, “All a Mistake” at Woodbury High School was so well done that a repeat performance was requested. Sponsored by the PTA, many ticket holders were unable to attend because of the measles quarantines at area homes. The cast of the production, directed by D.F. Bassler, included Clyde Sell, Wilbur Stayer, Clifford Brown, Lester Sell, Vina Lecrone, Hazel Hoover, Mary Keiper and Evalyn McMahon.

Proprietor G.R. Hoover opened the Martinsburg Milling Co. for business, doing all kinds of grinding for farmers and making their own grades of flour.

Marian Bonebreak of Indiana State Normal and Margaret Strasser of Hood College at Frederick, Md., spent Easter vacation at their Martinsburg homes.

Several black snakes were killed by Sheridan Brown and Charles Ulery in the Ore Hill area; the largest measuring 6 feet, 3 inches, and some smaller.
