George S. Stewart recovers missing English Setter
Through the efforts of Police Chief F.R. Remington, the valuable English Setter owned by G.S. Stewart and missing for some time, has been found near Fitchville County Road. Officer Watts and Sheriff Harry D. Smith assisted in finding the animal. Whether a prosecution will be made has not been announced. It is stated that the value of the dog is sufficient to warrant a grand larceny charge if wrong intention can be proved. The license on a dog serves as sort of insurance in cases of this kind, it is stated.
Norwalk High loses 18-14
Had Norwalk High School's gridders had about three more minutes to play Saturday, they probably would have taken the scalps off the Fremont Little Giants in much the same manner they did last season. After spotting the visitors three touchdowns, 18 points, Coach Carl Seibel's crew started a last half rally that threatened to upset the famed Little Giants. Norwalk played and completely outsmarted the Fremont aggregation during the last two periods and brought the final score to 18-14.
Ray Whittaker, Norwalk High quarterback, brought both Norwalk and Fremont rooters to their feet in the third quarter when he took a pass from Dunn and ran 50 yards for Norwalk's first touchdown. Whittaker twisted, squirmed and finally reversed his field in his long jaunt down the field and crossed the line standing up.
