4 Ihiiuv Mhii27 1998 The DA1I Y HI IHMUTR The Reporter Unleashing nionicnts of memory from 1935 A page from the 1935 Emitonia. Eminence By Josephine Foster 317-996-3263 The first steps of the transition from childhood into adulthood are similar to the very first steps from the crawling stage into the walking stage, kinda slow, easy and very wobbly. This stands true with the school years, as you start out slow then things get a bit easier and as you go up the ladder gradewise the work gets harder, making things more wobbly and uncertain. However, each step helps to make the transition easier and soon you find yourself ready for the big step into adulthood. The year of 1935 is now a memory in most everyones mind but to some it holds very special memories, such as some of the memories depicted in the picture with this column. The first picture depicts some of the teachers who gathered on the front steps of Eminence School to become a part of future history in the 1935 yearbook. I do not know all of the teachers but Orville Blue is second in the picture, next is Ernest Brown and next is Sylvanus Finchum. I did not have the pleasure of meeting any of the teachers other than Sylvanus Finchum who taught in the area for 30 years or more and is still very much loved and respected in Morgan County. Finchum is now 90 OPEN 24 HOURS Vtoodchm '-t't rir 1 iSiJ- s Picture submitted by Katherine Finchum years young and lives at Monrovia. I also met Mrs. Ernest (Ola) Brown and we also became friends. She is a treasure to know and talk with. I enjoy our phone visits and truly enjoy visiting with her from time to time. The photo depicts many capsule memories from the past. Basils pets seem perfectly content doing what they love best, eating Next comes Chums likely a mother and daughter or grandmother and granddaughter of the community captured at one of the happier moments of life. Next comes the Driving Lessons as two ladies go for an afternoon drive in the country, having learned the lesson of controlling the horse, who in turn fueled the vehicle. These afternoon outings by means of horse and buggy were so different than an outing of today by means of the automobile. Some of the most memorable excerpts of yesterday were memories of the family picnics, when the entire family would climb into the buggy with a huge basket of food to find a secluded spot somewhere, complete with scenes of a lush meadow and babbling brook nearby and strains of rrmm Karts?

The horse and buggy mode of travel was also a romantic w ay to go a courtin." The atmosphere the horse and buggy seemingly exuded possibly made it easier for the gent to ask for his girls hand in marriage. The next picture depicts another mode of travel, the old farm tnicks, used for many purposes, one to haul a load of pretty girls, maybe to a ball game or around the school parking area. The next picture is Lola Mae Red Lambert, known in those days as Miss Adventure. Next comes the adorable exhibit of children and their precious pets. Next comes Wedding Bells with a picture of Ernest Brown and his bride, Miss Ola. Next shows three little girls, titled Dreaming and next is The Prize, possibly a 4-H project. Then comes Miss Lonesome, and one of my favorite is the Washday picture, which depicts the typical Saturday night bathroom scene of that era. Sometimes these baths were taken inside, sometimes outside in the yard or in an old shed.

Ippolito is a graduate of St. Peters Prepatory School and St. Peters College, Jersey City, NJ. Ippolito is a network engineer and his w ife is a systems administrator for Anthem, Inc. in Indianapolis. Upon returning from their honeymoon in Aruba, the couple are making their home in Indianapolis. est neighbor may have been a country mile distance so it wasnt likely anyone would see you, unless they happen to be driving by while you were in the tub. Woodrow Finchum and his companion, (possibly a brother) seemed perfectly content with their bath and seemingly didnt care who was around. They even posed for the picture. The last photo depicts The Choice. I cant help but wonder which one the young gent," chose, or if he chose either one. The entire layout of pictures helps to recreate days of long ago, moments worthy of remembering, and it stresses once again the necessity of choosing your steps throughout life. Steps chosen with care are easier to retrack should you ever care to take a trip down memory lane to unleash moments from your past.
