CEJCTURir-OLD •ANDtJSKY BOOK DEFERRING once more brieflj ** to the time-honored Sandusky "First City Directory of 1855" ntntioned, here last week, we iMl it merits our giving it a f«w more •idcUghts lo reflect a few more of its own highlights. The «-ld booli, now a keepsake and memento of bygone years, was given to ll.s present owner, Mrs. Helen Hansen, by a good friend now deceased, and who had valued it for many years. The giver was Miss Cora Biemiller, daughter of Andrew Bie- niiller of Old Sandusky Opera Houst fame, and years-long friend of the old Klolz, West and Hubbard familie,? of whom vve havt spoken here on previous occasions. Miss Biemiller who died some years ago at the age of over 80. had resiicd the old book "before it went all lo pieces." • • * 'The venerable volume." Mrs. Han.sen said, 'came to me in quite forlorn shape, having evidently been used rather roughly by children in the L. S. Hubbard fam'ly who used to live in what we called the 'Denig house' on the southwest corner of Wayne and Adam,s-sts." The old First Directory, "stained brown with age," shows pencil tracings across page after page which must have been made by happy-go-lucky and pencil-twitching youngsters. Here and there are crude draw ings of farm-yard groups of cows and chickens, and on many pages is scribbled the name "L. S. Hubbard, Sandusky, Ohio." Well, "kiddies are kiddies." They have to indulse in some type of pastime. In those olden days they had no radios, televisions, movies or record-albums. So, to draw or to scribble in .oome unused book gave them an outlet of amusement. The old First Directory also served someone as a partial scrapbook. Cliptpings of poems, anecdotes and "personals" were pasted on other pages, apparently indicating that store-purchased Scrap Books, as we know them today, were not readily available in those days. * ^ i» Il'.s a wonder llie old volume still exists. As the present own er put it, "When I reallie the use to which that old book was .subjected, apparently after its life as a Directory was over, I marvel that it has survived the trash basket these 100 years ... I'm thankful it did, and It now holds an honored place on my bookshelf." Well, we're glad too. We have a penchant for old relics, old landmarks, old traditions. Too many of them are today treated with a lack of proper apprecia tlon and respect. After all these old mementos, literary, mu slcal, structural or otherwise make for good history. Without them the past would be a prac tieal blank, and records could not as clearly be handed down from one generation to another We must have a past to build a present. We need a present founded on the past, from which to develop the future. And old "keepisakes," books and traditions help us do this. • • • The old 1855 First City Directory tells us much about the past. It shows that even 100 years ago Sanduskians were proud of their city, and didn't hesitate to boost it. They expressed themselves pridefuUy about many of its advantages and achievements. Today we'll choose only one of those many subjects. Others will follow at some later date. They spoke highly, for instance of their school system;—They saidr''The free schools of Sandusky are Justly the pride, as they are the ornament, of the city. Few places in the Union can boast of a more thorough and comprehensive, yet economical, system. It is certainly not excelled, if equalled, by any other in the state." And what was said then, may well be said today. From the acorn of 1855 has grown the great oak of today. The old- timers, realizing the value of education, did their part. It must be admitted that they laid a good groundwork for the city an county schools, public and parochial, of today. Wc might say that they applied the Biblical admonition Mhich says. "Cast thy bread upon the waters, for thou slialt find it after many days" THEATER NEWS Communion At Presbyterian On Sunday Evening church To Observe Annual Christmas Service By Candlelight At 7:30 O'clock. The First Presbyterian Church will observe its annual Christmas service of Communion of the Lord's Supper by candlelight on Sunday at 7.30 p, m. This service is one of the most elaborate of the year.
