BOB HOPE TURNS 100
It was on May 28, 1903 that Robert Leslie Hope made is way into the world. Born in a suburb of London, England, he moved to the U.S. with his family a few years later. He worked his way up the vaudeville circut to be a featured attraction. Then came radio, movies and television. Perhaps Hope's greatest achievement was as head of the USO, where he and his company of players provided armed services personnel with a welcome diversion from the horrors of war.

HENRY SINGLE NAMED "2003 FREEDOM FIGHTER"
by Jerry Hinkle, Special to the Holabird Advocate
The American Legion Frank Vopat Post #35 has given longtime resident Henry Single the "2003 Freedom Fighter" award because ofhis courage andcapability during World war II. Henry served in the war as a mechanic in the U.S. Army, where he was awarded many medals, Among them were: the Purple Heart and the much sought after Good Conduct Medal.
Henry told me about one experience he had in Italy after the war was over. There was much dancing and celebrating as you can imagine. One gal that he was dancing with held him just a little too close for comfort and said, "Marry me!". Henry was taken by surprise. She spoke again, "Marry me! Take me New York!". Henry got way from her her and rightly so. Henry still loves to dance. He and his wife of 56 years, have made themselves a good home here in Holabird. They have three children, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
On behalf of the staff and all of the Readers of the Holabird Advocate, I, Jerry Hinkle, the couageous, dynamic Publisher give best wishes and congratutations and the gratitations of a greatful community, nation and world to Henry Single. I'm proud to have Henry as a neighbor and friend.
