ABOUT THE WEEK OF DEC. 18, 1964, At HAMILTON COUNTY, among the 746 freshmen enrolled at Plattsburgh State University College were four Hamilton County residents: George H. Baldwin, Indian Lake, secondary education (mathematics); Richard E. Beckingham Jr., Indian Lake, secondary education, (social studies); Paula J. Gauvin, Raquette Lake, home economics education; and Cynthia M. Potter, Wells, general elementary education.

County Clerk Earl C. Farber announced the sale of Conservation Department licenses in Hamilton County for November 1964: Resident - 16 Hunt and Fish, 25 Hunt, 11 Fish, 2 Trap, 246 Big Game; Non-Resident - 89 Hunt, 4 Fish, 89 Big Game, 1 Archery, 1 LLC.

At INLET, Inlet Brownies and Junior Girl Scouts held an investiture and rededication ceremony Dec. 1. Junior invested was Holly Gauvin. Juniors rededicated were Mary Catherine Dunay, Patricia Houck, Maurine Dillon, Heidi Fuge, Paula Lamphear, Debora Payne, Jeanine Ponder, Ellen Ponder, Kathleen Thibado, Janine Murphy and Nancyann Waldron. Brownies invested were: Carol Egenhofer, Laurie Foster, Linda Fortin, Linda Gauthier, Marta Landers, Joan Payne, Bonnie Tracy and Judy Tracy. Brownies rededicated were: Antoinette Brigham, Kim Egenhofer, Suzanne Fortin, Deborah Fuge and Lois Payne. Leaders were Miss Nancy Dunay and Mrs. Margaret Thibado. Cadet leaders were Mrs. Delores Payne and Mrs. Lorena Payne. Music was by Mrs. Adelaide Ross.

Inlet and the Central Adirondacks reeled under another wintry blast the fore part of the week when a snowstorm of major proportions dropped over a foot of snow. The storm began early Monday night and continued through Tuesday. The snowstorm followed several days of mild weather over Saturday and Sunday that took away most of the ice which had collected from a sleet storm a week earlier. Heavy rains Friday and Saturday cleared trees and roads of the blanket of ice. Sunday was a clear and sunny day, which led some to believe the area might experience a green Christmas. Along with the snow Monday and Tuesday temperatures dropped from the 40s to nearly zero. Occasional winds whipped the light snow around, making visibility poor throughout most of the day.

At RAQUETTE LAKE, Mrs. Minnie G. Waldron, 76, of Raquette Lake, died Saturday at Pompano Beach, Fla., where she was spending the winter with her daughter, Mrs. Chas. Windhauser. Mrs. Waldron was born at Indian Lake, daughter of Charles and Myra Hunt. She was married to Darius Waldron in 1909 at Indian Lake. The couple lived there for several years. He died several years earlier.

Mrs. Waldron was a member of Raquette Lake Chapel and its Ladies Auxiliary and had been active in women's work of the church. Besides Mrs. Windhausen, she left another daughter, Mrs. James Regan of Utica; four sons, Harry, Howard, Maurice and Oliver, all of Raquette Lake; three sisters, Mrs. Emma McQuinn of Ilion, Mrs. Hazel Dean of Long Beach, Calif., and Mrs. Percy Allen of North Creek; and a brother, Almon Hunt, Indian Lake.

The funeral was from the home of her son, Harry Waldron, with the Rev. Livingston Bentley officiating. Burial was in Cedar River Cemetery, Indian Lake.

At MOREHOUSE, Frank Long, 79, assessor for the Town of Morehouse for four years, died Dec. 12 in the Gloversville hospital. He was born in Rome. He married Hazel Brondstatter, who died in 1947. He was a member of the Methodist Church.

He left two nieces, Mrs. John Boh of Cold Brook and Mrs. Margaret Casey of Utica; and two nephews, James Russ of Utica and John Russ of Rockville, Md. The funeral was held in Newport with the Rev. Ivan Greenfield officiating. Burial was in Prospect Cemetery.

At WELLS, Dr. Louis Cola, 71, Wells, died Dec. 13 in Amsterdam Memorial Hospital. Dr. Cole practiced in Utica from 1920 to 1952, when he moved to Wells where he was town health officer.

He served as a captain in the Medical Corps in World War I, was a Presbyterian and a member of the American Medical Association and Wells American Legion. The funeral was held in Northville with the Rev. Paul Dufford, Wells, and the Rev. Aubrey Arlin, Utica, officiating. Burial was in Prospect Hill Cemetery.
