July 7 – Middletown 366


Remington-Rand Trouble Spreads

Middletown, Conn., July 7.–(UP)–Disorders in the Remington-Rand company strike occurred in four communities today.

Five homes and a bus load of workers were stoned. A rifle shot was fired at the automobile containing men who had thrown some of the stones. The outbreaks occurred here, at East Hampton, Portland and Middlefield.

Her Own Formula

Middletown, Conn. (AP)–Mrs. Anna Zadina, who with her husband Frank just celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary, has her own recipe for being active at the age of 87.

Mrs. Zadina keeps busy with sewing, but scorns the modern electric machine. She uses an old foot treadle sewing machine, pumping for several hours a day. She feels the foot action gives her legs exercise and helps the circulation.

From The Times (Hammond, Indiana), Sunday, July 7, 1963.
