25 years ago The master plan for Hampstead was heard in an uneventful hearing by county and town officials Tuesday. The only change in the plan was the addition of some 50 acres of "restricted industrial" land. -- the Carroll Record, Oct. 19, 1972.

50 years ago Any Gettysburg college student who deliberately damages the property of any college campus will be promptly dismissed, Dr. Henry W. A. Hanson, president of Gettysburg College, warns in a statement published in The Gettysburgian, the college newspaper. Dr. Hanson issued his warning after six Gettysburg students were apprehended while defacing property on the Western Maryland College campus on the morning of the day the football teams of the two schools met. The six boys are to raise $900 to pay for damage at the Westminster college, Dr. Hanson disclosed. -- Democratic Advocate, Oct. 17, 1947.

75 years ago Walter C. Wimert, near this city, while attending the Frederick Fair yesterday, had his pocketbook taken from his hip pocket, containing about $80. Feeling the thief's hand on his hip, he quickly turned and grabbed him. An officer who was close by handcuffed the thief and found the money on his person, but not the pocket book. The thief acknowledged that he was guilty. -- Democratic Advocate, Oct. 20, 1922.

100 years ago Howard Myers, a son of Solomon Myers, of Trevanian, met with a serious accident last week, and is still in a serious condition, although somewhat improved. He fell from a haymow astride of the barn door and sustained injuries which placed his life in serious peril. Drs. Motter and Seiss were summoned and were subsequently joined by two of the surgeons of the Johns Hopkins University. Through skillful treatment and care there is, at this time, a fair prospect of the injured youth's recovery. Young Myers is in his 16th year. -- American Sentinel, Oct. 16, 1897.
