25 Years Ago (week of Nov. 19-25, 1967):

* Police raided a house in the Lawyer's Hill area of Elkridge, arresting a man who listed his occupation as "auto mechanic" for performing illegal abortions. Also arrested, but not charged, were five women from out of state who had come to the house seeking abortions. The auto mechanic's work was described as "very sloppy" by doctors at University of Maryland Hospital who later examined two of the women.

50 Years Ago (week of Nov. 22-28, 1942):

* Glenelg Manor, home of Mr. and Mrs. W. Bladen Lowndes Sr., was purchased by Roland D. and George R. Zaiser. The estate covered 585 acres, which included several acres of gardens, a tennis court, a six-hole golf course, a swimming pool and a bridle path running through 200 acres of woodland.
