Country club directors urge $75 annually
When the stockholders of the Norwalk Country Club hold their annual meeting meeting the second Friday of January, some important matters will be dumped in their lap by the board of directors.
At the final meeting of the retiring board last night in Dr. Peasley’s office, it was decided to recommit to the stockholders that:
“Dues be raised to $75 instead of $50; this of course plus war tax.
“Free club dances and parties be abolished, and go back to the charge-parties with permission of members to invite whatever guests they desire (and pay for them).
“To provide some sort of extra compensation to the stewardess in order that the standard of club life demanded by the members be possible.”
That in a nutshell was the substance of a three-hour session.

St. Paul’s five uncorks flashy rally
Playing a determined up-hill game, St. Paul’s high school defeated Shiloh High 16 to 14 Friday night on the Norwalk High floor. The visitors sprang into the lead early in the game and when the local team was trailing 11 to 4, the outlook appeared dark. But in the second half, Coach Gabele’s outfit took the bit in its teeth so to speak and staged a thrilling rally. The team is to be commended for its ability to come from behind and win.
The Shiloh boys have much natural ability and should make things interesting for the teams of their territory and class.
Landoll as usual displayed much speed. He and Stoll, another fine performer, made two field goals each. But members of the local team whose names do not appear in the scoring column, should be given credit for the team work that really won the game. Hamman of the Shiloh team made three field goals.
Field Goals: St. Paul’s: Landoll 2; Stoll 2; Millein, Barman.
Shiloh: Hamman 2; Brumbach, B. Buckman 2.
