The following issues are missing from the microfilm:

Saturday, January 19, 1929 January 27 through June 27

The Sunday paper was issued jointly by the News and the Leader. Sometimes it is fr)und 
in the microfilm file of the News and sometimes in that of the Leader. However the following 
Sunday papers are missing from both files:

ERRORS AND OMISSIONS 

The newspaper made errors: John Dutton was really John Hutton. Names are 
misspelled. Dates are wrong. Many events—even deaths—were not mentioned in the 
paper. 

I made mistakes. Microfilm is often blurry and indistinct. Numbers particularly 
are difficult: 2s and 3s look alike; 6s and 8s look alike. Items were scattered about. 
Who would think of looking for a birth announcement among the want-ads? Items 
were overlooked because headline writers tend to be cutesy: "Prosecutor Jones Gets 
New Assistant" actually means his wife gave birth to a son. A marriage was reported 
under the headline: "To Consolidate." It is easy to overlook such whimsical items. 

Many items which I omitted nevertheless mention family relationships. Before 
radio and television people spent much time visiting— usually relatives. There are 
thousands of items reporting such comings and goings: "Lucy Belle Smith returned 
to Ashtabula, Ohio, to visit her grandmother Violet Vales." Such items were not 
included in this index but nevertheless often reveal family relationships. The reader 
(if he has enough patience) might do well to read through such items. 

The reader is strongly urged to CHECK EVERYTHING. He should check the 
microfilm himself He should check with other sources: birth and death certificates, 
tombstone records, probate records, ftaneral home records, city directories, census 
records. Fortunately the Springfield-Greene County Library has many of these records. 



CENTENNIAL 

The year 1929 was the centennial year of the founding of Springfield and June 16-- 
June 23 was the centennial week. There were all sorts of celebrations. There was a 
magnificent evening parade on Wednesday with illuminated floats. I remember this as one of 
the very best parades I have ever seen. On Thursday there was a pageant at the Shrine Mosque 
with over 1400 participants. There were many family reunions, exhibits of old photographs, 
old furniture, old clothing. There was a birthday cake three feet in diameter. The newspaper 
reported all these events and also ran interviews with many old timers. There were other 
articles dealing with the history of Springfield. 

I was somewhat surprised to read (page 319) that Mrs. Alice Holland— whom I remember 
for her ability to quote long passages from the Bible from memory—had indulged in "kissing 
games" in her youth (!) to the tune of "King William was King James' son" (page 403). 
Miss Marion Bissett, later a teacher in high school, presided as Queen of the Ozarks. William 
J. Miles recalled when he fought in the Battle of Springfield in January 1863 (page 338) 
making it seem much more vivid than the simple factual accounts in the history books. Isaac F. 
King recalled a song the Civil War soldiers sang (page 373). There were descriptions of the 
Square as it was in 1868 (page 337) and in 1876 (page 384) and photos of it at various times. 

In one quite interesting feature the forecasts made by various Springfieldians about what 
it would be like 100 years in the future were reported. Some forecasts were quite accurate. 
One man predicted that home cooking would no longer be done. Instead people would get 
their pre-cooked, packaged meals from their grocery. Miss Ida Ausherman predicted (page 
315) that a woman would run for President. Some predictions were wildly fanciful— Prof B. F. 
Finkel, for instance, thought in the ftiture they would pave a street without digging it up a few 
weeks later. 

One of the most useftil articles, I thought, was the chronology of Springfield history 
compiled by Dr. E. M. Shepard (page 365). Dr. Shepard gave the actual date when each event 
occurred. So many of the history books are rather vague about dates. 

Another article (page 309) listed many of the people who had lived in Springfield fifty 
years or more. 

There was an account of how New Year's was celebrated in the old days (page 6) and 
also an account of the hazards of travel in the days before the railroad reached Springfield 
(page 336). 



Many interesting articles were printed in the Sunday paper but unfortunately many of the 
Sunday papers are missing from the microfilm. The Daily News is missing for the entire period 
January 27 through June 27. I don't know why. It seems to me there was vague talk of a fire. I 
was so impressed with all the historical articles in the newspaper that I saved the Leader [We 
did not take the Daily News] for the entire week June 16— June 23. I had these laminated and 
gave them to the Public Library but they seem to have disappeared. They are all on microfilm 
anyway except for Sunday, June 16, and Sunday, June 23, both of which are missing. 

For those interested in local history, a perusal of the newspapers during this period 
would be richly rewarding.

Central street. Charles E. Harwood's house was on the southwest corner of Bcnlon aiitl 
Sycamore (now Brower)— see page 859. Later he built the house on the northwest corner 
of Benton and Lynn. The obituary of his son Edward Charles Harwood (who died April 
23, 1944) says Drury college was founded in that house— 1307 Benton (old number). 
Probably the founding of Drury college was discussed in both houses. Such decisions 
are rarely made instantaneously.

task of keeping the records of the 
district ha« been performed by a 
inamber of Waddell's family for at 
least 65 years. His father, his older 
brother, he. and since Ills recent 
ir&lgnatlon. his sonlulaw. L. W. Wy- 
iKk. have performed the service. In 
nddltlon.' he has served as Justice of 
(lie peace, and was federal census 
liiker for three consecullve terms. 

Waddell. who was once a teacher 
of vocal music, tells of an Interesting 
New Years custom which was ob- 
served In Some parts of the Ozarks 
soon alter the Civil war. A group 
i.f men. chiefly jouiik;. and ncurly 
nil farmers, started out on New Years 
. v» on horseback to make the rounds 
ot the farmhouses of their com- 
munity, serenading, and firing a New 
Years salute wherever that was per- 
muted. They would often prelude 
ilielr chief performance with instru- 
mental music, and always with a 



song or chant In which they asked 
permission to fire the weapons they 
I arrled.

Funeral Rites Monday Will Be Made Occasion for Tribute to 

One Going Gallantly and Willingly Upon Her Last 

Great Adventure 



ny DOCIA KARELL 



CUMAXINO a lUe in which travels 
played • vivid and memorable 
part, Mr«. Julia A. Hovey Colby has 
taken her final Journey. Mrs. Colby 
loved to travel, and loved to remem- 
ber and talk of her varlou* sojourn - 
Ings. Those who knew- her know that 
she welcomed the last Journey with 
the same gallantry and eagerness for 
adventure with which she faced all 
earthly wayfarings. 

Bhe had long been ready— ahe 
wished to go. Because of her Splr- 
Itullst faith, what men call death 
was to her In a peculiarly re:il sense 
only the beginning of greater trKVCla 
than Iltc could offer. 8o ;lic ven- 
tured the unknown confidently, as- 
sured that she was going to vU.lt and 
to Join old friends, numerous and 
close aa the ones she left — assured 
close as the ones she left— assured 
that trsvfls beyond earlli would 
prove no let.s glamorous and tttscln- 
atlng than llic ones she so much IihM 
enjoyed here. 



A. R. Van Matre. state treasurer, will 
apeak briefly of her long affiliation 
with their organization.

At the Bt. LouU "fair." true Ml»-

tbat "tbe moat oonaplcuoua object 
In the Palace of Agriculture waa the 
com palace of Mlasouri, great towere 
being conatructed entirely of Mis- 
souri com." 

Mra. Colby wrote a great deal- 



songs for her pupils to sing, poems 
and eaaaya for tbe Tarlous organiza- 
tions In which she waa active, propa- 
ganda verses for euffrage and klnd- 
nesa to animals, and descriptions of 
her travels for newspapers and other 
publications. In IBIS she published 
a small volume of remlntecences. 

With all her Interests, probably her 
most ardent enthusiasm was for 
birds and for animal life — aside, of 
course, from her pupils. These she 
always taught the love of birds and 

animals as a regular part of their 
claaswork. 



I BUILT BIBD BEFVOE | 

« 4. 

Her garden and bird refuge In the 
Uttla home, modeled after a Swiss 
chalet, which ahe built at 458 South 
Grant atreet, was a spot of beauty 
and mtereet to Sprlngfleldtans for 
years. A field of June-blooming 
llUea, fragrant and white, especially 
won great admiration and corrunent. 

Her Inwn had some fine maple«, 
and in their shade, for the comfort 
of birds, ahe had bird platforms In 
which fre&b water was placed In Im- 
maculate containers every morning, 
and on which food as well was plac- 
ed during the winter. Her love of 
bird and animal life went so far that 
she championed vegetarianism, and 
especially deplored the eating of 
fowl. Including Thanksgiving turkey. 

Her cottage was filled with curios, 
pictures, and relics of her travels 
which she treasured and always dis- 
played with affection. 

During the winter of 1924-5 she 
was frail and 111: and before another 
winter, on October 14. 1935. she 
moved to the Mary E. Wilson home. 
Last spring alie was 111 (or a long 
while, but regained her strength dur- 
ing the summer, and seemed as well 
as usual at Christmas. Friday even- 
ing, quietly, she slipped away on a 
far Journey, eaijer. we may believe, 
for the adventurlnjj that ape and 
frailty deprived her of here any 
longer.

put bis surprised old mount to such

house at Waynrsvllle. Wildly asking 
everyone he met for the Yankee cap-
