50 Years Ago (week of March 8-14, 1942)
* Ellicott City High School's Class of 1941 held a somewhat premature reunion this week. Of the 32 graduates attending the function, all were either employed or attending business school or college. Most of the boys were working in defense-related jobs. The girls were employed in clerical jobs or were attending business school. Four members of the group were attendingMaryland colleges.
* This week the Acme Supermarket in Ellicott City featured the following items: canned salmon for 18 cents, rump roast for 35 cents a pound and coffee for 21 cents a pound. Also on sale, creamery butter at 39 cents a pound, salt water oysters for 55 cents a quart and pan-dressed trout at 15 cents a pound.
