A look back

By Staff
Researched by Dr. Bill Stewart
Oct. 18, 1957-Although the win was a close one from the perspective of the score (7-0), MCHS intimidated Moulton during most of tonight's game at Sherrill Stadium. The Tigers now have 5 wins and only a single loss. Willard Lipsey made a TD in the first quarter and Gary Vest followed with the PAT.
Oct. 19, 1957-As cold season hits full swing local residents have been interested to learn that a scientist at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore believes he has discovered a vaccine people can take to prevent colds-just two shots with no side effects.
Oct. 20, 1957-A plaque was dedicated today at the Lacey's Spring cemetery in memory of John Lacy, a Revolutionary War hero who died in 1826 and for whom the community is named. (The difference in spelling is accounted for by a postal error.)
Oct. 20, 1957-Funeral services for Mrs. Guy Walker of Somerville will be conducted today at Antioch Methodist Church. Mrs. Walker, whose husband has been a mail carrier in their community for many years, passed away at Decatur General Friday following a heart attack.
Oct. 21, 1957-The next president of the University of Alabama, Dr. Frank A. Rose, who serves currently as president of Transylvania College in Lexington, Ky., is now being seen frequently on the UA campus, according to local students.
Oct. 22, 1957-Flu and other respiratory ailments have now struck Morgan County schools in a big way. About a fourth of the MCHS enrollment was absent today on account of illness.
Oct. 23, 1957-The Tuscaloosa newspaper reported today that a faculty athletic committee has requested the resignation effective December 1 of the current Tide head football coach, J. B. "Ears" Whitworth. Coach Whitworth declines to do this, however, so he will probably be fired. Alabama has won only 2 of the 24 games it has played since Whitworth assumed leadership of the Capstone football program.
Oct. 24, 1957-Morgan County Agent L. T. Wagnon is being shifted to the same position in Lauderdale County. This announcement was made by officials with the state extension service at A.P.I. Mr. Wagnon originally came to this county as its agent in 1935.
