Candidates give views on closed council meetings
Norwalk City Council should have an agenda published in advance of the meetings, agree council president candidates Delbert E. Crawford and K.S. Flickinger.
The two men, however, have differing views on the matter of "secret" or closed meetings.
Crawford says "they are necessary" but that people misinterpret their purpose. He maintains they are not decisionmaking meetings but rather informational meetings.
Flickinger says he would not take part in any meeting in city hall which was closed to the citizens and press. "I don't believe the citizens should be able to comment in the committee meetings," said Flickinger, "but they should be able to come and listen."
"I sold my horse," is what blonde, blue-eyed "Mexican Cowboy" Chad Staschke, 3, (who was pictured on the front page in his cowboy costume) told a photographer taking pictures this morning of a Halloween Party at Maple City Nursery School in the Norwalk Alliance Church. All set for "Trick or Treat" Chad was chagrined to think he'd have to be riding the local range minus a mustang. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Creighton Staschke, of 5 Mack Street.
Slabodnick heads seal campaign
William Slabodnick, administrator of Fisher-Titus Memorial Hospital, will be the 1968 Christmas Seal chairman in Huron County.
Announcement of his acceptance of the post was made Tuesday at the Huron County Tuberculosis and Health Workshop.
Slabodnick's background in the field of health includes assignment as commander in a 650-bed prisoner-of-war hospital in Germany in World War II.
Youngster falls off railing
Football is normally a fun sport, but to Eric Myers, 14, of rural Monroeville, it is a game of bumps and bruises.
Myers was admitted to Fisher-Titus Memorial Hospital Thursday after being hit in the right eye playing football for Monroeville High. He was treated and released for head injuries sustained in Monroeville's freshman clash with Clearview.
Patricia Sholes, a seven-year-old grade school student in Milan, fell off a railing while in school and was taken to Fisher-Titus for treatment of a fractured left arm and head injuries.
Little Pat lives in rural Norwalk and is still at the hospital for treatment.
Pictured in the paper standing with coach Dennis Corrigan were five of Norwalk High School's ends: Don Helton, Dave Sweet, Rich Meisler, Jack Lolla and Mike Leak.
The Truckers were facing Willard and their star running back Don Wilson on Friday.
