November 16, 1977 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

The article below first appeared in the November 16, 1977 issue of the Daily Statesman. Topics included Homecoming, analysis of local results in the general election, National Emergency Medical Service Week, and the importance of CPR in rural areas. Mentions included Alan Reed, Presley Chelf, Sidney Grant, Mike Stephens, Cotton Phelps, Dennis Loy, Gerald Doss, and Wayne Livesay. --Pen

By Ed Waggener

The New Sound at WAIN is getting a lot of attention. Coach David Farrar of Lindsey Wilson says that now, whenever the family turns on the radio, seven-year old Nikki Farrar says, "Daddy, turn it to Alan Reed's station."

Homecoming was a good show
Everybody who attended the Lindsey Wilson Homecoming activities were complimentary of fast-pace of the affair. Everything happened on schedule and the schedule was full. Dr. L.R. McDonald, president of Lindsey Wilson, gives credit to Dan Ellis, the school's information director. "He really knows how to handle the problems of Homecoming," Dr. Mac said. "Sometimes I wonder how we would run the school without him."

Rivercrats are angry
The Green River Democrats are angry at the central organization in Columbia. There, Democrat Presley Chelf, running against a popular, progressive Republican Magistrate, Sidney Grant, almost pulled an upset. The feat was a major accomplishment because the Republicans in the First Magisterial District outnumber the Democrats almost 2 to 1.

Rosenwald then and now - getting things done working together

Two men: a remarkable partnership!!! The recent work days by community members and the fish fry to raise money for supplies to preserve the Flatwoods School is really in keeping with Rosenwald’s plan to get things done by working together.

By Vonnie Kolbenschlag

BOOKER T. WASHINGTON (1856-1915) and JULIUS ROSENWALD (1862-1932) devised a plan to build 4977 new schools and 380 complementary buildings in 15 segregated southern states for children of color.

WASHINGTON, born a slave, badly wanted to learn to read and go to school. He got that chance at the Hamilton Institute and used his education to help establish the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, by fund raising and donations from Rosenwald.

ROSENWALD, wealthy president of Sears, was a very generous and innovative philanthropist, donating toward many worthy causes. His Jewish religion taught that if a person had wealth, it should be used to help others.
