THIS WEEK IN HISTORY – 1963 HOOTENANNY AND DANCE LAUNCH SABIN DRIVE A hootenanny and dance will kick off the Bradley County Medical Society’s all-out effort to impress upon every man, woman, and child in Bradley County the importance of taking full advantage of the coming county-wide clinics to “lick polio”.  The giant hootenanny and dance will be held on the parking lot of The Village Monday (Labor Day) at 7:30 p.m., Tommy Thomas of Chattanooga, Southern champion square dance caller and master of ceremonies, will direct the program.  Group singing, as well as both Western and county square dancing will be included along with contests, complete with prizes, for the best child “twister”, the best teen “twister”, the best man’s western costume, the best woman’s western costume, and others.  Drawing for a vacuum cleaner will climax the show.  Tickets will be sold by Bradley High School cheerleaders, with proceeds going to the Bradley County Medical Society to help defray the $15,000 cost of the polio protection program.  Contest prizes and vacuum cleaner will be donated by The Village Merchants.  In the fight to “lick polio”, total response from Bradley Countians is urged.  Volunteer workers, under the direction of the medical society, hope to administer to every man, woman, and child over six weeks old the life-saving Sabin oral vaccine, which is taken by mouth on a sugar cube.  Vaccine for a different type of polio will be administered on three separate Sundays, approximately one month apart, making it necessary for each person to receive the vaccine all three dates.  The dates, designated as “Sabin Sundays” are Oct 6, Nov 10, and Dec 15.  Locations are The Village Office Building and the following schools:  Stuart, Mayfield, College Hill, Blythe Avenue, Oak Grove, and Charleston High School.  A nominal charge of 25 cents is suggested to help defray the cost of the vaccine, although no one will be refused.  Doctors state that the Sabin oral vaccine does not preclude the necessity of the Salk injection vaccine.  They strongly advocate it as being just as necessary, since it provides additional protection and eliminates the carrier state of polio.  Both are necessary for maximum immunity, the say.    WALDEN RESIDENCE: A LOT OF LIVING If the saying is true that it takes a lot of living to make a house a home, then the Cyril J. Walden residence is one of the “homiest” in Bradley County.  Walden and his wife have raised – or are raising – 12 children.  And he’s only 42 years old and she’s 34.  “We just started raising our 12th child recently,” said Walden, who lives on Blue Springs Road.  Only four of the children are theirs.  The others?  “They just didn’t have a home and we’re trying to give them one,” Mrs. Walden said.  “I like to see children satisfied, because I had a hard time growing up myself.”  Their own children are:  Cyril Lee, 17; twins Carolyn Mae and Clarence William, 15; and Shirley Ann, 13.  Two were adopted.  They are Hoyle, 22, and Marietta, 20.  Walden’s mother died in 1955 and he and his wife took his two young brothers to raise.  They are John, 21, and Charles, 18.  The others, “we just took under our roof because they needed a home,” Walden said.  These include nephews Andrew and William Bryson, now 23 and 20, respectively, whose parents were divorced years ago and remarried.  “The boys just decided they’d rather come and stay with us,” Mrs. Walden said.  Another nephew staying with them is Robert Long, 16, and his sister Patricia, 15.  Of the 12, eight are now staying with the Waldens.  They are William Bryson, Charles and John Walden, Cyril Lee, Carolyn, Clarence, Shirley, and Patricia.  “We hadn’t planned on having a large family when we got married,” Mrs. Walden said.  “But we love children and want to give them a good home.  Each one gets a job assignment which keeps him busy and off the streets.  Roaming around is what causes so much of this juvenile delinquency.”  But there’s more to raising children than just a good home, the Waldens say.  “Each Sunday morning, they know where to be,” she said.  The family attends Blue Springs Baptist Church.  Both Walden and his wife are sturdy people.  He cuts and hauls pulpwood for Bowaters.  Mrs. Walden helps with logging “every day,” he said.   more

THIS WEEK IN HISTORY – 1947 G.L. HARDWICK PASSES SUNDAY Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at 4 o’clock for George L. Hardwick, Jr., 56, local industrialist who died suddenly in an Atlanta clinic at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, death coming as the result of a coronary occlusion.  Mr. Hardwick had been in failing health for several months and he had been taken by his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. W.T. Corn, to the Owensby clinic at Stone Mountain, Ga., the day before his death.  Word of the death was received here Sunday afternoon, the clinic physician stating that Mr. Hardwick had passed a quiet night and morning and had visited during the morning with his sister and her husband.  He had lunch and shortly afterward suffered the attack that proved fatal.  Mr. and Mrs. Corn left Atlanta about one o’clock and returned to Cleveland only to be informed of Mr. Hardwick’s death on their arrival here.  Mr. Hardwick had been president of Hardwick Woolen Mills, Inc., since the death of his father in 1940.  He was prominent in financial circles and took an active part in civic affairs.  At the time of his death, he was a vice-president of the Cleveland National Bank, he was a member of the Board of Stewards of the Broad Street Methodist Church of which he had been a member for many years, he was an enthusiastic member of the Kiwanis club and he stood high in Masonic circles.  He served a term as mayor of the city in 1925-1926.  Mr. Hardwick received his education at the McCallie school, Chattanooga, and Vanderbilt university, Nashville.  In 1906 he left school and entered the woolen mill to learn the business.  He had been there since that time.  Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Elizabeth Pyott Hardwick; three sons, George L. Hardwick, III, John Hardie Hardwick and Frank Hardwick, of this city; four sisters, Mrs. D. Sullins Stuart, Mrs. H.B. Moore, Mrs. W.T. Corn, of Cleveland and Mrs. W.B. Foster, of Cristobal, Panama Canal Zone; also two brothers, C.M. and Frank Hardwick, of Cleveland.  Services were held from the Broad Street Methodist church, conducted by the pastor the Rev. M.L. Gamble, assisted by the Rev. M.L. Kinchelee.  Pallbearers were W.B. Parks, B.C. Brown, H.B. Carter, C.L. Wilson, Harrison Fair, Joe Grey, C.F. Kelly, and Dr. W.A. Garrott.  Internment was in Ft.
