Local News - June 12, 1915

Columbia City Post, Whitley County, Indiana ~ Saturday, June 12, 1915
  • Miss Mildred Jones, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. I. Jones, of Spencer street, arrived home Tuesday evening from Oskaloosa, Iowa, where she has been dean of the physical training department of Oskaloosa College during the past year. School has been out there for some time but Miss Jones has been visiting with friends at Madison, Wis., and other points. She will remain here until June 26th, when she will go to Chicago, where she will take advanced training work in physical culture. She will return to Oskaloosa next fall, as she has been very successful in her work there. She is a graduate of Earlham College.
  • Lewis E. Maloney, a son of James L. Maloney, of Churubusco, and a brother of P. J. Maloney, of this city, arrived home Tuesday evening from Purdue University, where he has completed three years in the Agricultural department. He has one more year of that work before he will have completed his course. His training is along the lines of scientific farming, and Prof. George I. Christie, of Purdue, who is one of the recognized authorities in this country on the subject, states that the inquiries to the university for trained scientific farmers far exceeds the number who qualify themselves for this work. The near future will demand greater production from the tillable lands in this country and it can only be done by applying scientific methods to agricultural work.
  • Herbert McCleary, who has been visiting for a few days with O. H. Diffendarfer and family, of South Main street, returned to his home in Toledo, Ohio, Thursday noon.
  • Mrs. Keyes Harris, of Union township, went to South Whitley, Thursday, to be at the bedside of her mother, Mrs. Sam Albright.
  • Mrs. Will Grund suffered a hemorrhage of the lungs Thursday forenoon and was quite sick from the effects of it. She is under the care of Dr. Ben P. Linvill.
