Court House Employes Honor Custodian With Party
Alvin V. Schneider, 158 Maple Street, Frostburg, was honored yesterday afternoon at a party at the Court House to mark the occasion of his retirement after 14 years as custodian.
He will be 70 years old February 17. Prior to becoming a custodian at the Court House he worked as a coal miner and a movie theater projectionist in Frostburg.
Decorations for the party included such “tools of the trade” as a coal shovel, dust pans, mops and brushes. Mr. Schneider, who formerly worked in a brickyard and as a motion picture projectionist, plans to take it easy at home, where he resides with his wife. His only child, Mrs. Betty Hazelwood, lives in St. Louis with her husband and four children.
The county commissioners yesterday hired James Keating on a temporary basis as janitor at the Court House, according to County Commissioner John T. Mason.
