LOUIS RUSCHIN
Louis Ruschin, who is enjoying very satisfactory success as a realtor in Newark, has attained his present place in the business world through his persistent and determined efforts and the high principles which have governed him, and no citizen of his community stands higher than he in the estimation of his fellowmen. Mr. Ruschin was born in Germany and came to the United States alone at the early age of eight years. He could not speak a word of English and had attached to his coat a tag, giving his name. He came to his uncle, Joseph Bock, in San Francisco, and secured his education in the historic Lincoln school. At the age of fourteen years he started to work in his uncle's bakery, where he was employed until 1890, when he came to Newark and went to work in the Southern Pacific railroad shops. Later he worked in the James Graham Company store. For eighteen years he was employed as a clerk in the general store of F. Falk, after which he engaged in business in Newark. He has property interests in this district, which engage his time and attention, and is one of the well to do and substantial citizens of Newark. He is a member of the advisory board of the Centerville branch of the Bank of Italy and belongs to St. Anthony's Hospital Association of Oakland.

Mr. Ruschin was united in marriage to Miss Margaret Murphy, a native of Ireland, and they are the parents of two children, Julia and Louis John. The son is in high school and is an eagle scout of the Boy Scouts of America. Mr. Ruschin has been very active in the public affairs of his locality, having served as a member of the board of school trustees and of the sanitary board. About fifteen years ago he organized the volunteer fire department, of which he has been chief continuously to the present time, and he formerly served as county game warden and as a deputy state game warden. He is affiliated with Centerville Lodge, No. 170, K. P.; Hayward Lodge, No. 1139, F. O. E.; San Jose Lodge, No. 401, L. O. O. M.; the advisory board of the American Legion, the U. P. E. C. and the I. D. E. S. Everything relating to the welfare and progress of the community in which he lives has enlisted his earnest support and he has been an important factor in affairs of importance. Cordial and friendly in manner, he is widely acquainted throughout this section of the county and all who know him hold him in high regard.
