He may well now be the Sunpapers' oldest living alumnus, observing life and Mount Baker at 97 from a retirement home in Portland, Ore., near his niece, Ellen Nesbitt, and his sister, Katharine.Mr. Ward was born the year of the Spanish-American War, 1898, and grew up in Jarrettsville, Harford County.

IT'S BUSH league," said a caller on one of the then-budding, radio-talk shows."That stuff went out with horsehair sofas," said another.So it was a little bush, a little horse hairy, this posture The Evening Sun struck in the Spring of 1978. But in its bushy, hairy way it worked. It made a little history.The sniffy remarks were aimed at an editorial endorsing Harry Hughes for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. Sniffs aside, Mr. Hughes was nominated and, that fall, elected by a record majority.

Cal breaks Gehrig's record. The Evening Sun closes. The pope comes to town.It's turning out to be a historic few weeks in Crabtown, and Marylanders have saved, or will be looking for, thousands of extra copies of The Sun and Evening Sun in the hope of preserving the moment for their children or grandchildren.Trouble is, newsprint is made to be read and then recycled, or spread under the cat box. It's not crafted to last very long. And, unless readers take precautions, it won't.The big problem is chemistry, says Martha H. Jackson, book and paper conservator for the Milton S. Eisenhower Library at the Johns Hopkins University.

WHEN I WAS 17, my father gave me a copy of H. L. Mencken's book "Newspaper Days" for Christmas. I read it three times before New Year's Day and concluded that I wanted to spend the rest of my life in the city room of The Evening Sun, Mencken's paper.At 21, shortly after graduating from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, I went to the old Sun building, at Baltimore and Charles streets, to ask for my job. Running on an enormous amount of ill-founded confidence, I had no appointment, but I thought they would probably be expecting me.As I headed for the elevator, I was stopped by the formidable Miss "Bernie" Moorman who stood guard at the reception desk.
