School movie to be shown on April 13

Many school pupils of the city will have a chance to break into the motion picture game this week when the Industrial Film will take a series of pictures of work being carried out in the public schools here.

The films will cover all the rooms in the various grades and will also include the high school, kindergartens, the opportunity school and pupils in their daily activities.

Emphasis will be stressed on the special activities of the various departments. The various sections of the film will be formed into a coherent pictorial story and will be shown at the high school on April 13 at 6:45 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. C.C. Patterson, superintendent of schools, will explain the various high spots of the film.

Bullet enters basement of high school

Police Chief F.R. Remington has investigated the case of a .22 caliber bullet that broke a window in the basement of Norwalk High School some time last night. "The bullet entered the building on the north side under the superintendent's room and after penetrating a ventilating fan went through the plaster and became lost."

About 1:50 a.m. today an automobile backfired from a point some distance east of Main Street to the center of the city and many were curious to know what caused the reports. It is believed that the bullet was accidentally fired by a boy.

Helen Carpenter gets Phi Beta Kappa Key

Miss Helen Carpenter, daughter of Judge and Mrs. Irving Carpenter of Norwalk, has achieved a number of outstanding accomplishments in her work at Ohio Wesleyan University. Miss Carpenter returned last night to resume her studies at Delaware after spending the spring vacation with her parents.

Last month she was elected to membership in the Phi Beta Kappa Greek letter fraternity, a national honorary organization that required a high standard of scholarship for membership. Her official grade is 2.72 on the three basis.

The Guild will meet every three weeks instead of the usual two weeks.

Plum Brook will open Saturday

SANDUSKY - Sunday's fine weather brought out a large number of golf enthusiasts to the Plum Brook and Orchard Beach courses. The fact that the season has not been officially opened as yet did not keep golfers from taking a short trip around the greens and practice a few swings at the hard rubber.

William "Bill" Gordon, local Plum Brook pro, announced Monday evening that the course will be thrown open to the members on Saturday, April 11. The opening date had been previously scheduled for April 1, but due to the disagreeable weather conditions, it was decided to postpone the affair.
