The top stories in the Norwalk Reflector-Herald on this date 70 years ago:

2nd story man good climber

Norwalk police are making a determined effort to close in on the athletic second story expert who has been pulling house-breaking jobs with monotonous regularity.

A night or two ago, a Norwalk woman telephoned the police station saying a shadowy form had been seen in her rear yard.

The entire Norwalk police force, headed by Acting Chief Glenn Schamp, several substitute patrolmen and Mayor Fred P. Link, responded within a few minutes to surround the house.

A fine-tooth comb search of the premises and neighborhood failed to develop anything of importance.

Finally it was discovered that a waving branch near the grape arbor cast a moving shadow that probably caused the alarm.

Hostess to Bridge Club

Mrs. R.L. Morse graciously entertained the members of the Thursday Bridge Club and several guests at the Country Club yesterday afternoon.

A daintily appointed luncheon was served at one o'clock at a table centered with a bouquet of lovely garden flowers.

Three tables of contract were in progress during the afternoon and at the conclusion of the games, Mrs. W.G. Angell received the club prize and Mrs. J.H. Coxe the guest award for high score.

Those enjoying Mrs. Morse's hospitality were: Mrs. W.C. Pratt, Mrs. F.W. Cook, Mrs. H.G. Breckenridge, Mrs. Emma Pressing, Mrs. W.G. Auzell, Miss Charlotte Watson, Mrs. W.G. Gilger, Mrs. L.C. Rose, Mrs. J.H. Billmeyer, Mrs. J.H. Coxe and Mrs. P.J. Roll.

Jinx hits Norwalk High School hard

Yesterday afternoon Norman Call was stricken by a severe side-ache. This morning it was thought that it might be an attack of appendicitis. Call is the passer par excellence, who uses his head in tight places when he is doing his job as quarterback. His shoes are hard to fill. Coach Cal Pfeifer certainly feels this loss with such a heavy team as Ashland coming into town this afternoon.

Preston will be missing from the line up due to a strained shoulder, which developed after the Shelby game. He acquired this strain while chasing the ball, not in scrimmage.

The starting line up for Norwalk is: Colvin, left end; Parrish, left tackle; Nardecchia, left guard; Starn, center; Tillson, right guard; Ogen, right tackle; McLeod, right end; Halter, quarterback; Berner, left half; A. Ehman, right half; Thomas, full back.
