Chamber of Commerce By Brooke Blgckford Ezecutlve 8ecret~ry Your Chamber was represented at the ground breaking ceremon- ies of Harpers Ferry, Inc., March 18th by President Joe Staler and your secretary. This could well be the biggest development to hit our county in many a year. Harpers Ferry Enterprises, Inc. was quick to see the advantage of belonging to our Chamber of Commerce and signed up on the spot. , , ;;: ::: ~': :'3 "" The proposed re-enactment of the John Brown trial at our Court House is attracting wide- spread 'attention.

We received helpful informat ion that will be of much value to us here in Jefferson County. * * * * * Each year four members leave our Board to be replaced by four new members Our loss is great this year in that we are losing John S. Alfriend, Linden Bush, Thomas W. Steptoe and T. A. Whitacre. However, our Nominating Com mittee has come up with eight- outstanding nominees who are Paul Cain, H. S. Clopper, Jr., P. L. Hockman, Shirley Hunt, J. Em ory Kable, Harold (Chuck) Kis-i her, William Pringle and J. Ed i ward Saville. From this list of l eight, four will be elected at our April meeting which will be held at Shannondale. They will take office June 1st. There will be a re-enactment of the burning of the arsenal at Har pers Ferry in April. The actual burning took place April 18,.1861, but this year's observance will take place on April 22nd. Confed- erate troops from Winchester, Front Royal, Frederick and Knox ville will participate. Our House and Garden Tour will take place this same week- end. The two events should tie in very nicely. * * :k * * Sgt. Lyle Furr has done an ex- cellent job getting the Jeffer- son Guards off the ground. This Confederate unit met March 16th to officially re-organize and elect officers. They voted at that time to join "Living History, Inc.". We hope the 3efferson Guards will be far enough along by Me- morial Day to take part in those ceremonies. Charles W. Murphy Given 10 Year Service Pin Charles W. Murphy, a painter at Harpers Ferry National Monu- ment, was awarded a Ten-Year Service Pin by the Federal Gov- ernment, Superintendent Frank It. Anderson announced last week. Murphy has worked at the Mon ument since November, 1956. The years added to his length of ser- vice with the United States Air Force prior to and during World War II have made Murphy eligib- le for the award. IIe is a native of ttarpers Ferry and with l he ex- ception of the years spent in mil- itary service has lived in Harpers Ferry all his life. This would be a better world if we had more wild life in our forests and less. in the big ,cities. Advertise in The Spl lt.Advoeate and Mrs. Richard R. Robinson, Bethesda, Md.
