Yesterday, co-workers at the courthouse interrupted .their business day to mark Miss Steele's half-century of service to the county. Receives Gifts Amid the elegance of silver and candles, flowers and crys- tal, the veteran worker was given a silver Revere bowl, a crinkling new bill tucked away in a card of best wishes and a silver letter opener from Gov. Walter R. Peterson. The surprise party was given in a conference room at the Miss Steele gently protesting too much of a fuss was being made over her. Presiding over the festivi- ties was Miss Steele's boss, Registrar of Deeds Joseph G. Maltais of Manchester. Also participating in the gift- giving was, former Registrar Donat Corriveau of Nashua who was Miss Steele's boss for. 32 out of her 50 years at the coun- ty office. Throughout her years of work under him, Corriveau said, "she was a good and faithful em- ploye." Miss Steele has served under seven registrars and has seen the office staff build up from three employes to seven. System Changes Methods have changed in the recording of deeds too. Just before she joined the staff, Miss Ste.ele recalled, copies of deeds were hand-writ- ten for recording purposes. When she started work, deeds were typed and since 1946 they have been, photostated. Miss Steele said she took the business course at Nashua High School, from which she graduated in 1919, with the in- tention of working in an office. She first went to the court- house as a temporary summer replacement and remembers having a slight dislike for the work then. "I don't know, I just thought wouldn't like it she noted.
