25 years ago George Plimpton, the unquenchable amateur, tries his hand as a rookie quarterback for the Baltimore Colts on "Plimpton! The Great Quarterback Sneak," a one-hour ABC television network special at 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 26 on WJZ-TV. From the start of the training season, at the Colts' camp in Westminster through all the classes, scrimmages, calisthenics and inevitable trips to the infirmary, George observed and, whenever humanly possible, participated. He had donned football helmet and shoulder padding before to do research for a book, the best-selling "Paper Lion." -- Democratic Advocate, Nov. 22, 1971.
50 years ago Armistice Day will well be remembered here by the breaking of ground for the proposed home for Molleville Farm Post No. 467, Veterans of Foreign Wars. -- Democratic Advocate, Nov. 15, 1946.
