COU N 1 I With this Issue of the Tri- County Weekly Publications, Inc. another change has come about. For the first time in the history of these papers two people will serve as Editor and Publisher in­ stead of the usual one. For 48 years this job wa s capably filled by the late W F Arthurs, follow­ ed for the next 14 years by Paul F Dorris, whose unfortunate death necessitated this change. These jobs will be filled by Burdette C. Clark as publisher and Maurice Hopkins, Jr as editor M r Clark, better known as Det, has been associated with this firm since November 1, 1937 Having work­ ed at the business all his life, Det joined the organization as a lino­ type operator an d for the past 16 years has been shop foreman and production manager Maurice Hopkins, Jr . joined the organiza­ tion in December 1946, learning the business under the Gl Bill of Rights On th e Jo b Training Pro­ gram Hop ha s served as adver­ tising manager for the past six years. To fill the shoes of the two predecessors is alone a man sized job. Surely there never were two more talented country news­ paper editors an d publishers than Pete and Paul. This is evidenced by the growth of this organization since 1893 when eaght local busi­ ness men purchased and moved the Wyoming County Herald to Arcade. This alone presents a challenge to th e ne w organization to give'' you, th e reader, a better and more progressive newspaper .To accomplish this will require the full cooperation of ajl. For­ tunately we are staffed by the best office and shop force avail­ able. All being well trained in their respective jobs, makes the challenge much easier Changes will be made but the policies of these papers will re­ main the same as have been in effect since the beginning. Your suggestions of ways to improve these papers are most welcome. We are here to serve you i n the best way possible The shop or office is open for your inspection at your convenience. In the improvement depart­ ment Last week w e tried to list some of the places of business which have undertaken steps to enlarge or improve their sites. Gorham Studio on \ East Main Street and the duVerre, Inc. are undergoing remodeling and expan­ sion, too Elsewhere in tnls paper is a legal notice of interest to all the voters of the Arcade Central School system. ^_ On Wednesday night, October 14 the voters will receive a report from the Citizens Site Committee on school sites which will recommend the ac­ quisition of the 163.34 acre Wal- lace-Knowlton site. This is an all-important meeting and .should be attended by the voters of the distrct. To all of those who have children in th e school ages, it is vitally important. Something has has got to b e done In regard to our school problem. The Citizens Committee, capably manned by Louis Fulkerson, Chaiman, Hugh Wilson, Vincent Nourse, Frank Conroy, Richard Winch, Maurice Phelps and Larry Romance have worked hard and diligently to study several proposed sites. A good turnout to hear their reports will be thanks to them for their efforts. Attention all voters, regardless of political affiliations' Last weekend in Buffalo one of the most respected citizens of Wyom­ ing County was given the nomina­ tion for the judgeship of the State Supreme Court, This honor was given, to none other than Honor­ able John S. Conable His nom­ ination was for the district which is comprised of Wyoming. Alle­ gany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara and Or­ leans Counties This is the scond opportunity for a resident of Wy­ oming County to serve in this ca­ pacity, as some twenty years ago the Hon James E. Norton served on the Supreme pourt bench, kludge Conable has been given the I suppt*t_ef the Wyoming County I Bar Association. Long known for \ his fairness, yet firmness, we \think this is a most wise choice Let's get out and give him our support. —^— Bjshop Ledden Speaker Af Arcade Service Of Consecration About 200 persons attended the open house and service of con­ secration a t the Arcade Metho­ dist Church last Sunday after­ noon, marking the completion of the church's ne w educational building. The guest speaker was Bishop W Earl Ledden, leader of the Syracuse area of the Metho­ dist Church. The two - story brick - faced structure contains a large dining room and kitchen on the first floor, on th e second floor are the pastor's study and office, as well as five Sunday School classrooms. This 72 x 44 foot addition has in great part been paid for by the unstinting work of the church congregation This reduced costs to less than $40,000 from the architect's estimate of $72,000. Also participating wa s Dr. Frank L. Hicks, Olean District Superintendent; D r J. Wesley Searles, a former pastor, and Dr Hanford H. Closson of Rochester, father of th e pastor of the Ar­ cade church, the Rev Richard A. Closson. Bishop Ledden chose for his topic \His Holy Temple,\ stating that any kind of building ma y be made with the same wood and metal, bu t i t \is made great when touched b y human hands which fashion it into a divine edifice. The building offers enlarged edu­ cation facilities, but it becomes alive with the spirit of God by people consecrated to a great pur­ pose.\ Therformal presentation of the building was made by Maurice Phelps, chairman of the Building Committee; Dewitt Kissinger, lay leader of the church, an d Mrs. Robert Neamon, chairman of the Commission on Education.

Arcade's Keystone Hall To Become Just A Memory The third floor of The Citizens Central Bank Building in Arcade is about to b e razed. Due to Its precarious condition it has been unused for decadesi This floor of the building wa s known to Arcadians of^khree gen­ erations as the Keystone Hall. Lost in the maze of local history is the reason for so naming this former site of most civic and soc­ ial functions which took place in the town. It is thought that pos­ sibly the keystons in the win­ dow arches prompted it The cen­ ter of village life in the past many fashionable balls of the local fire companies were held there and many days were spent in decorat­ ing the hall for various affairs. The Dickens Club and the Ar­ cade Monday Club held their meetings there. Josh Billings, the noted American humorist, filled the hall to overflowing one night and as a result the Dickens Club made a grand profit of $28 On February 12, 1909, the night that Arcade's first electric lights were turned on, th e Arcade Monday Club presented a drama in the hall for the benefit of the Library Fund. When the bicycle craze en­ veloped th e area in the 1880's, several Arcade men learned to ride their bicycles in the hall be ­ fore venturing into the street. Following the disastrous fire of 1898, the hall temporarily shel­ tered several burned-out busi­ nesses. It wa s in constant use un­ til after th e First World Wa r when the Arcade Theatre an d the auditorium of the Arcade High School were built. Anson_F. Sherman, President of The ClUzeha Central Bank, notes that no columns were used to support this 50'x70' hall Was it some special secret of the con­ tractor which caused this floor to stand over the years — or was it some miracle'' Does anyone in the vicinity have any knowledge on the subject? At any rate, a feeling of nos­ talgia will pervade the thoughts of the older generation at the idea of losing this old landmark These thoughts, of course, will be mixed with a feeling, of re­ lief that possible danger to the building or to passersby will be averted and of pride that the lo­ cal bank is continuing its program of modernization and expansion.

A strong defense and two guys named Hoffman added up to the Arcade win before a small crowd The defense, was great most of the afternoon, stopping almost everything that Attica had to of­ fer on the ground The pass de­ fense, although weak at times, nevertheless held up when it had to. Arcade opened up the scoring early in the first period on an At­ tica fourth down Th e ball wa s on the Attica 15 with fourth down and Attica ready to kick. Th e hike from center went over the kickers head into the end zone where Joe Hoffman pounced o n it for a safety or two points. At tica refused to call it quits an d stormed back late in the second period to go aheaed for the first and last time in th e game A sus­ tained drive carried them to th e Arcade 12 where they scored o n a pass. They made their extra point also via a pass. Arcade finally got their of' fense rolling midway through th« second period with Berme^off- man and Ed Walters doing th e most damage Hoffman's runs an d Walter 's passes had carried Ar­ cade to the Attica 15 Bernie Hoffman took a handoff. cut over right guard, slanted off to his left and scored untouched behind some great blocking The extra point was missed and Arcade led at half time, 8-7 The third period was half ov­ er whin Arcade again carried the boll into Attica territory Jack Fries and Bruce Hoffman slash­ ed through the Attica defenses while Walters passes again moved Arcade into scoring position Again it wa s Bernie Hoffman tak­ ing a handoff and sprinting around his left end to score un­ touched Again the blocking was exceptional The extra pont, a pass, wa s missd so Arcade clung to their 14-7 lead.
