 In Newberry Township, John Souders recalls, "...down by Cly they had a sulfite mill where they made matches, they had a match factory there, and you come up a little further and they had a paper mill, well, first of all, when you come up above that, H. L. Newman and Company had the big ice houses there along the railroad. And they cut ice for the ice cream plant [in York, I believe]. Then you come on up further, they had a felt mill, made paper there in Cly."
