Weaver Heads Freedom Train Parade Committee For November 13 Colonel William G. Weaver, Balti- more street, was elected chairman of the People's Parade committee of the Gettysburg and Adams County 71 loint meeting of tlie Veterans and Mili- tary committees in the Hotel Get- tysburg Thursday night. It was decided to merge the two committees because of the simi- larity of their assignments and to concentrate on a People's parade here on the afternoon of Saturday. November 13. This will be the second day's feature of the Week's Rededi- cation program prior to the two-day exposition of the Freedom Train here November 19 and 20. The committees, meeting withj Frank Crane, area director of The American Heritage foundation. At- torney Donald M. Swope. general chairman, and Paul L. Roy, secre- tary, of the Freedom Train com- mittee, drafted a tentative outline for the November 13th parade. Unique Parade It will be unique and entirely dif- ferent from any parade ever staged in Gettysburg and is expected, when details are completed and published, to attract -considerable Interest and enthusiasm. "We are planning a mammoth demonstration of Americanism and patriotism by all the veterans of all services of Adams Colonel "Weaver said. "We also hope to have a number of army units, an aerial demonstration, a speaker of nation- wide prominence, and at least seven bands participate in our People's parade and program." he added. "The suggestion for our style of parade was made by Mr. Crane and our committee members immediately adopted it as being the most unique ever attempted here. ________Outstanding Speaker______ Game Postponed Until Saturday It was announced this after- noon at 2 o'clock the Gettysburg- Waynesboro high school football' game scheduled for this evening will be played Saturday evening at 8 o'clock due to inclement weather. A group ol several hundred pupils staged a parade and bon- fire rally Thursday evening. Meeting at the high school at 7 5'clock, the group, headed by the high school band, marched to center square where cheers were given and the majorettes per- formed. Upon returning to the high school the youngsters con- tinued to the baseball field where the bonfire was lighted by Bruce Westerdahl, end on the team, and Jean McGlaughlin. chief cheer leader. A dummy, repre- senting the Waynesboro team, was burned. More cheers were given and members of the sq.uad and Coaches George Forney and Howard Shoemaker spoke. The singing of the school song con- cluded the program which was arranged by Miss Florence Adam, of the faculty. 200 CHEST FUND SOLICITORS TO BEGIN SATURDAY Nearly 200 solicitors on Saturday will begin a ten-day drive to raise for the Gettysburg Commun- ity Chest. borough has a Community Chest, solicitors will spend much of their time in explaining that the Com-' munity Chest drive replaces six other' campaigns for funds would have been held this year if there had been no Community Chest or- ganized. They are heartened, however, by the fact that national and local publicity has made most Gettysburg residents conscious of the need for Community Chest contributions. Something New Mere ItlsUpToYou The success of the first Community Chest drive in Gettysburg will depend upon the early generosity and response of the people of this community to the urgent needs of the agencies participating in the campaign, according to a Chest official. The agencies who will share in the fund to be raised by popular subscription are those who serve and cater to the welfare of all the community. There is no remuneration for any individual but the entire community direct benefits from the success of the campaign. The Times completed, on Thursday, a series of articles on those agencies participating. The public IA well in money they give to the Chest drive is to .be spent. When the workers call for contributions, Chest officials feel that they will be well received and that the response will be town-wide hi scope and generous in spirit. The life of the participating agencies depends upon how Gettys- burg will respond to this human appeal. Local Trucker Held On Drunken Driving Roy B.
