October 1946 Grab Bag

 All kinds of doings around town in October of 1946!


Oooh, if the Red Devil loses he will shed his mask!


   








Anybody know what type of fund-raiser the 'Community Chest'  was?

So is the Dicky Spangler in the picture from Alexander Graham Junior High that same as Clemmie Spangler, a very successful businessman?

I believe that the 'community chest' is the precursor to the "united way". An early version of the United Way.

Blake - I bet you're right that 'Dickie' in Clemmie Dixon Spangler. Good catch, and thanks for the comment and link!
