Page 10 - Weanesday, August 20, 1980 Glimpses of the Past By JACK HOWELL Recently in the paper there was a brief article about what Alfred M. Landon had to say about the forthcoming election and his support of the Republican party. For those of you who never heard of him, he was the Presidential candidate in 1936 against Franklin D. Roosevelt, and today at 93 is still active in politics. He was Governor of Kansas in 1936 when he ran and was so popular that other aspirants for the office with -+ drew from the race to give their support to Landon; among these were : Knox, Vanderburg, Dickinson and Nice. The first ballot gave Landon 983 votes and Senator Borah 19. For the record, Cloverdale voters gave Landon I00 votes in the second district in Roosevelt's B4, but overall in the six districts the vote was: Roosevelt 660, Landon 365. Another California, Earl Warren, who was district attorney of Alameda County, was named a Republican Committeeman. In 1936. Meanwhile, the Queen Mary, super liner was making her bow on the Atlantic, weighing g0,000 tons. She had 12 decks, 234 feet from keel to masthead, and was capable of traveling 32 miles per hour or 37 knots. She carried 2,075 passengers and crossed the Atlantic in 41/2 days. Today jet airliners fly via the polar route from San Francisco to Frankfort Germany, in 13 hours, and as you leave Los Angeles for Hawaii you look down at Long Beach annd see the old Queen resting at the dock after her many voyages. That's progress! Recently, I talked about circuses and their capacity to entertain the folks in small towns who otherwise may never see the sights they brought to the community. In 1936 the Barney circus came to Cloverdale and was quartered at the Caldwell tract across the Redwood Highway from the Sunset Auto court. Before coming here, misfortune came to them in as two lions escaped in Grass Valley and one drowned in the Bear River while resisting capture; the other was captured and they proceeded to their ren- dezvous in Cloverdale. Evan Thompson purchased Joe Kothgassners equipment and business interests. He will be in charge of the railway express office and ice business assisted by Charles Holst. A raging fire was finally contained on the Pine Mountain ranch of R. M. Horn after it had consumed hundreds of acres of grazing land and destroying all the buildings on the Larsen ranch and the Carson ranch. On October I, 1936, fire destroyed a local landmark on Sulphur Creek, this was the Hans Nithausen barn which for 60 or more years was used as a flour warehouse " for the old Sulphur Creek mill. The Nilhausen home was also destroyed; they lived there for over 40 years. A pioneer lady passed on that same week, Mrs. Jessee L. Appleton of Preston who was horn in San Jose in 1861 and .was the daughter of Volney Moody. She came to Preston in 1875 with her mother the late Addle Hubbard and in 1895 she married Wellington Ap- pleton, son of Madame +.

The vaudevillian was the leading actress on Broadway in 1928 at the Grove Street Folly Company in which she portrayed four different characters. In 1929 she ap- peared in the first variety Mow and first dramatic show produced by San Francisco radio station KFRC. As a television performer Mrs. de Roche appeared in such ows as "Father Knows Best" with Robert Young and he "Day in Court" series. Sought after as a performer at diverse benefits, she*has been a frequent entertainer for such disparate groups as B'nai B'rith, Protestant religious college campuses and Catholic benefits. With imparkling eyes and a con- tagious smile, de Roche facetiously quotes Bob Hope. "I perform benefits for all religions. I wouldn't want to blow eternity on a technicality." During intermission Mrs. de Roche will have on display award winning oil paintings and petit point and crewel ++` needlework wall tapestries that she has created over the past six years.

She has .knitted 15 full-length coats, 3OO different crewel and petit point pieces and painted over 200 oil paintings. "Retirement can De tun m the later years the gregarious performer exudes as she changes from one dialect to another, quotes original poetry, dances a vaudevillian shuffle and mimics Gracie Fields, Carol Burnett and numerous other old time and current show personalities. Anybody can do anything they set their mind to de Roche emphasizes. "I didn't start painting until after I was 55. I started doing petit point and crewel after I was past 70. And I canoed down the Russian River every summer until l was 77. My son insisted I quit. You can do anything you set your mind to." de Roche repeated, and then added "'except get people to mind their own business." She was apparently thinking back to the son's hrging that she desist from canoeing. Mrs. Christian Bird, harpsichordist and a Santa Rosan will accompany some of Mrs. de Roche's musical presentations.

Good Word for Today: Speak By PHYLLIS SJOBLOM all found that I TEXT: Then I said, I will not make mention of Him, or speak anymore in His name. But His word was in my heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones,and I was weary with forbearing, and l could not stay. Jeremiah 20:9. SPEAK When I first read this passage of Scripture l could clearly see that Jeremiah spoke for Godly people throughout the ages. What Christian is there who cannot identify with these words? There is indeed a fire in the bones of every believer which makes it impossible to remain silent about the things of the Lord. We speak" because we cannot remain silent. I am sure there have been times in your life, as well as in mine, when you have been |nsulted or belittled for speaking for God; and we have probably determined, at some time or other, to "not make mention of Him," as Jeremiah did. But we have quiet about the nail in I he says, allowed of trust with we speak; men but simple.
