   Wellsboro Agitator, The (Newspaper) - March 9, 1938, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania                               VOL. .10. THE AGITATOR, WELLSBORO, PA., WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 1938. WHOLE NO., P.M. SHEFFER WAS GUEST OF HONOR At the Meeting Thursday of the Wellsboro Ro- tary Club. The Wellsboro Rotary Club had as its guest of honor, Francis M. Sheffer, of Wellsboro, civil war veteran, at their meeting Thurs- day. The program in his honor was presented by Mrs. L. 3. Hay- den, who spoke on "Music of the War of the Rebellion." In introducing Mr. Sheffer, Dr. Laird said: "Our guest of honor needs no introduction; he is well known tcrall of us. He is a native of Tioga county, having been born in Liberty 94 years ago. At the ape of 19 he enlisted in the 28th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volun- teers, and on July 1, 1863, he mingled the laurel of Tioga coun- ty with the blood .and fire of Cem- etery R'dge in the first day's bat- tle of Gettysburg, when the flood- tide of rebellion threatened to sweep aside the Army of the Po- tomac. "The following day he stood his ground at Little Round Top when the roads and paths -were literally paved by the bodies of his fallen comrades. He saw Pickett's charge on July 3, 1863, as wave after wave of the flower of the Confed- eracy were scattered us the with- ered leaves of -winter. In those three days he tasted the agony of defeat an supped the full pleasure of victory. "His cry then was 'On to Rich- but disease laid him low and he returned to Tioga county to regain his health and strength. Eighteen months later he reenlist- ed and marched southward. When Lee- surrendered in April, 1865, our guest was walking the guard at City Point, Virginia. He had served his country well. "His service to our community began in 1889, when he was elect- ed Sheriff of Tioga county. In 1894 he became Prothonotary, whicl- office he held until 1906. In 1904 he became a member of the Wellsboro School Board and has been its secretary ever since.

He has never been a Rotarian but he typifies the true spirit Let a real Rotarian, Wellsboro's first cis M. Sheffer.' As Mr. Sheffer rose to his feet, the Rotarians sang: "Old Soldiers Never Die" and "There's Some- thing About a'Soldier That Is Fine, Fine, Fine." Mrs. L. J. Hayden was then in Mrs. LI.

Senate, Says Mansfield Advertiser. The news that State Senator G. Mason Owlett will be a candidate for the Republican nomination for United States Senator brings home.to the voters of Tioga coun- ty that we have an excellent chance and opportunity of placing one of our own citizens in that important office, says the Mans- field Advertiser. This is an hon- or that will be appreciated by Ti- oga county and one that is emi- nently fitting for Senator Owlett. All indications at present point to a Republican victory next fall. The New Deal in Pennsylvania and the nation has sadly failed to be representative of the best in- terests of all the people and there is a growing antagonism not only among Republicans, but among the Democrats through whom the New Dealers crept into power. Personal ambitions and selfishness among the leaders of the New Deal administration in Pennsyl- vania is proving even to those who elected them, that they are not the true representatives cf the people they profess to be. Senator Owlett has qualifica- tions that will command the re- spect of the voters and of his col- leagues in the Senate. Ever since he began his first term as State Senator it has been recog- nized that he would go far in po- litical affairs. He has been fre- quently mentioned as a fifoire governor of Pennsylvania. He has won the admiration of Repub- lican leaders in the state and they placed him in the highly respon- sible position of Republican Na- tional Gommitteeman and now are asking that he be nominee for the United States Senate. With Mason Owlett in the Sen- ate, Pennsylvania will have a rep- resentative of whom" we will be proud. He has an'understanding of government, particularly (gov- ernment of, fur aiiu" by the people; he has ability, a keen mind to see into and beyond the surface he er, not because he is an orator, but because he has such an easy way of telling about a real Kotarian, wensDoros nrsi ,_ citizen, our guest of honor, Fran- things He has been in demand throughout the state to luinu speaking engagements on many occasions, and everywhere he has gone he has won the admiration of his audiences.

Congress offered for a good marching song. Several well known poets, includ- ing Oliver Wendell Holmes, offer- ed new verses for the "Star Span- gled but none struck popular fancy. The most catch- ing tune was "John Body." This was easily sung by the soldiers and they made up their own verses. The John Brown referred to in the song was not the John Brown of Harper's Feriy who was captured by Col. R. E. Lee of the U. S, Army a few years before the outbreak of the war between the states. "The Battle Hymn of the Re- public' 'is an example of a hymn which became the most popular battle song. At the close of Mrs. Hayden's talk, she played a medley of civil war songs which included: "Say Brothers, Will You Meet "Maryland My Maryland."

MANY LETTERS ItOM BROADCAST Talks By Wellsboro Men Over Radio Bring Many Requests for Literature. As a result of the broadcast over WESG, Elmira, Wednesday on Spaulding "Quik the Wellsboro Tourists' Bureau haa received almost 150 letters from some 46 New York and Pennsyl- vania communities requesting lit- erature on Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon and the State Laurel Fes- tival to be held in Wellsboro, June 25, 26, 27. Appearing on this Broadcast were: Arthur H. Dunn, president of the Chamber of Commerce; Fay K. VanHorn, Penn-Weils Hotel .manager, and Larry Woodin, 'Touring Bureau manager. Dur- ing the interview over the air mention was made that a pictorial folder of the Canyon was avail- able to listeners who might write for it. It is the result of this statement that accounts for the widespread number of inquiries for the Canyon folder. Requests for this literature mentioned on the broadcast have come from Horseheads, Skanea- teles, Cortland, Sidney Center, 'ully, Owego, Elmira, Millport, Singhamton, Canandaigua, Ithaca, ohnson City, Bainbridge, Oneon- ta, Odessa, Alpine, Avoca, Waver- y, Montour Falls, Pine Valley, Elmira Heights, Corning, Stanley, ttchols, Beaver Dams, Endicott, Jeneva, Palmyra, Brooktondale, Rock Stream, Newfield, Syracuse, Freeville, Watkins Glen, Earlville, Dresden, Alfred Station nd also the following Pennsyl- ania communities: Wyalusing, Onshore, Halistead, Starlight, Wheelerville, Sayre, and Towan- da. Included in the many letters was one from a New York state istener who 45 years ago was elegraph operator at Blackwell, another from a lady who some 40 years ago was a clerk in a Wells- department store and many who were quite amazed to learn hat in visiting the Harrison Park club's most- YOUNG MAN SHOTJflMSELF At the Shell Gasoline Service Station Near the Borough Line Saturday Might Fulvo.

Apparently determined to place the Canyon Laurel in the same important classification as the Washington Cherry Blossoms and the Shenandoah Apple Blossoms, motor magazines throughout the country are swamping the Wells- boro Tourists' Bureau with re- quests for copy and pictures to use in these publications between now and the June Festival. Some 26 motor magazines in. nine states have in the past week asked for stories of words in length together with pictures, for their pages. As rapidly as pos- sible the material is being prepar- ed and sent out for use. One magazine, the Philadelphia Car, has requested permission to de- vote the cover of the June edition to the Festival. A.A.A. motor publications in the following cities will in the next month or two carry stories on the State Laurel Festival at Conn.; San Francisco, Cal.; Trenton, N. J.; St. Louis, Mo.; Atlantic City, N. J.; Binghamton, N. Y.; Schenec- tady, N. Y.; New Haven, Conn., Washington, D. C.; New York city; Lancaster, Pa.; Bradford, Pa.; Allentown, Pa.; Altoona, Pa.; Camden, N. J.; Milwaukee, Wis.; Pottsvile, Pa.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Madison, Wis.; EasLon, O.; Peeks- kill, N. Y.; Lebanon, Pa.; Detroit, Mich., and Chambersburg, Pa. Announcements of the Festival have already appeared in the BUSINESS MEN TO FORMCOUNC1L Wellsboro Chamber of Commerce Making Ev- ery Effort to Please Vis- itors Here. The record of the Wellsboro Chamber of Commerce under the leadership of retiring president S. L. Boom has been one of steady and brilliant progress. The inten- sive effort to publicize Pennsyl- vania's Grand Canyon has met with results beyond any expecta- tions and the peak has not yet been reached because the planned activities and organization of the drive this year surpasses that of previous years. The only conclusion that one can draw is. thai there will be more visitors in Wellsboro this summer than ever before. There will doubtless be week-end after week-end when the town's facili- ties will be taxed to the utmost to care for the crowds, and one of the high-lights of the season will be the State Laurel Festival which L. A. Woodin has been successful in arranging. Early returns indi- cate that there will be thousands here those days. The time has come for the next step in developing the business to be produced from this tourist traffic and it is the belief of trie officers and directors of the Cham- ber of Commerce that it is not too early to begin getting our house in order to provide such an atmos- phere both socially'and commer- cially' that every visitor will leave Wellsboro with a pleasant feeling in his heart and a good word on his lips for our town. rfr ilia "V3 VUJL t" 11. larger city Sunday papers, includ- There is ample evidence that ing Baltimore, Washington, D.

JUNIOR WELFARE CARD PARTY Funds Needed for Medi- cine and Eyeglasses fof Worthy Cases. The Junior Welfare Association held a benefit bridge party at the home of Mrs. E. R. Seifert Mon- day evening.

High scores were won by Mrs. Ralph K. Tallant, Mrs. J. R. Cro- setto, Mrs. Wm. L. Suhr, Mrs. Wm. F. White and Mrs. Eric Sod- erquist. The money taken in by the As- sociation will be used to buy med- icine and eyeglasses for worthy clinic children of Tioga county. Although the association has been functioning for over a year this is the time that a public appeal has been made for money. As their work increases many more children are being found whq need attention and who can not afford it. The committee were very well pleased with the response made by the women of Wellsboro for this worthy cause. The committee in charge werp: Mrs. James Bower, Mrs. Edward Inghram, Mrs. B. G. Hacerman.

Without such an appropriation, he explain- ed, bank loans would be necessary. The money was made available on motion of Percy L. Brooks. A membership committee com- posed of Elmer G.
