Delmar January 18 1929

Delmar News State Register January 18 1929

Mrs. Chas. Smith of Baltimore, Mrs. W. T. Smith of Cape Charles, Na., and daughter of Ellis College, Philadelphia, Prof. W. A. Bowland of McDonogh School Baltimore, with wife and daughter, were guests of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Parker and family on Sunday.

Delmar Lodge, No. 582, Loyal Order of Moose has adorned its lodge room with a beautiful mounted moose head 54 inches across the antlers.  This added attraction was purchased from a trapper in Alaska a few weeks ago.  It necessitated the removal of a window before its installation could be made.  The head is placed over the dictator chair and has received much comment.

Our town still has many cases of flu.  The Delaware school reported over a hundred scholars absent last week.  Local physicians claim there are equally as many patients as during the epidemic of 1918.

Russell Barrell, a member of the crew of the battleship Utah is spending sometime with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Barrell.

Miss Kathrine Spry, a senior in the Delaware High School, while playing basket ball at Bishopville, Md, last Tuesday night fell striking her head on the floor knocking her unconscious and a state in which she remained for several hours.  She was rushed to Salisbury hospital for treatment and where she remained until Friday when she was brought to her home.  It is reported she is slowly improving.

Lloyd Hudson of this town, but who has been working for the Pennsylvania railroad Co, at Jersey City for sometime met with a painful accident a few days ago while on duty at that place.  It appears that Hudson was between two cars when other cars rolled up and struck them which resulted in breaking his right foot in two places.    He was rushed to a hospital for treatment where he still remains but will be brought to his home in Delmar as soon as his condition permits.
