State Demo Leader Dies

Indianapolis (AP)
Mrs. Margaret Afflis Johnston, 60, president of the Indiana Democratic Women's Club and former Democratic national committeewoman from Indiana, died Monday after suffering a heart attack.

Mrs. Johnston started her career in politics as a township trustee in Delphi. She served as vice chairman for Carroll County and the 2nd district and was a national committeewoman from 1960 to 1964. She was elected as the president of the Women's Club in 1965.

She served 15 years on the board of the Indiana Women's Prison and was appointed state probation director by the late Henry F. Schricker during both his terms as governor.

She is survived by her husband, Leroy O. Johnston; a son, Richard Afflis of Indianapolis, and a sister, Mrs. Ethel Patterson of Delphi.

Funeral services will be held Thursday morning at Second Presbyterian Church, with burial at Delphi.

Gordon St. Angelo, Democratic state chairman, said Mrs. Johnston "represented the very best qualities that have made the Democratic party great - idealism, dedication, imagination and tireless energy. Her death is a great loss to her many friends in Indiana and across the nation."

Mrs. Agnes Woolery, state vice chairman, said the death of Mrs, Johnston was "a great personal loss to me and a tremendoss loss to the Democratic Party in Indiana."

This is taking much longer than I anticipated. 1968 will have to wait for a bit. There are many corrections, additions, names of buildings, fall listings etc etc that still have to be made from the years 1957 to 1963. Not just from Mike's site either. Tim Hornbaker's site has a ton of stuff too.

I knew this was going to be the case so that's why I asked people not to C & P this ring record into their files until I an completely finished. Plus I'm finding more stuff on the newspaper archive site. It's all a matter of using the right key words and choosing the right states and cities. And then you have to fool around with the date descending, date ascending and relevant thingie to get more listings.

Here's a blurb I found thru an unrelated search.  The Dr. X mentioned here is most likely Tom Stone using the Dick Beyer hood he probably ordered out of Norm Kietzer's magazines.  No clue on the ID for Super Destroyer.  Sorry this is out of sequence compared to where you are thus far.

Actually Bruiser results after 1984 are welcomed. I don't have many of them.  Thanks.

Just a small change on the 2/20/67 Chicago card.

Wilbur Snyder wrestled The Mongol. El Mongol is listed and he was a mainstay in the Georgia area. The Mongol was a completely different guy. I was going through my old programs and I saw this.

I've noticed that too and it will be corrected. Thanks again Rich.

I will be updating this puppy over the Holiday weekend. Been doing tons of edits, adding a few cards and trying to figure out what happened in Detroit during 1959 and 1960.

I love that 3/14/57 Ottawa  result where Bruiser beats Dubuque and after the match beats up Referee Eddie Creechman who supposedly had to go to the hospital with a leg injury.
