Janet Middlebrooks and her sister-in-law were always trying to diet, so when they met for weekly excursions at Harundale Mall half a century ago, they always ordered the Waldorf salad at the upstairs cafeteria. From the get-go, Middlebrooks, now 81, was a devotee of the Glen Burnie shopping center, the first enclosed mall east of the Mississippi. She saw the governor cut the ribbon at the mobbed opening, bought groceries and clothes, and occasionally participated in evening square-dancing demonstrations.

Rouse Co. officials have told merchants that they are putting Harundale Mall up for sale. The merchants say they don't care."It doesn't make a difference who owns it as long as they do something to bring it back up," said Robert Braun, who owns Hair Salon in the southeast corner of the mall. "Businesses have sort of drifted. I still think Harundale's got a lot of potential."Mr. Braun opened his salon in November and said he still plans to expand his business. "If someone took an interest in the mall and rebuilding the original concept of what it was supposed to be, you could have a successful mall," he said.

Bessie was a show-stopper, drawing crowds just by eating her breakfast.Small children giggled and pointed when she raised her trunk and made a loud squealing noise before swooping down and snatching another pile of hay in the parking lot of the Harundale Mall.For the second consecutive year, the Glen Burnie shopping center is playing host to the Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers Circus.

Rouse, to suggest setting aside some space for a youth recreation center.

HARUNDALE MALL is on life support, and one of these days the Rouse Co. will pull the plug. The reassignment of mall personnel to other Rouse properties and the notification of the remaining tenants that they will have month-to-month leases beginning July 2 are indications that that time may be quickly approaching.Since Oct. 1, 1958, when Harundale opened, retailing has seen tremendous changes. When the late James Rouse built the mall, it was the first to be enclosed east of the Mississippi.
