Mosquitoes are given warning they must move

Mosquitoes have their days and nights numbered, if everything goes as planned in Norwalk this summer.

The agitation was started some weeks ago by the Business and Professional Women's Club to do something to abate the nuisance, and the first thing considered is the cleaning out, straightening and oiling of Norwalk Creek.

The matter was discussed by the directors of the Community Chest yesterday afternoon in conjunction with city officials and the entire matter is to be taken up with the board of health and city council and strong effort to be made to get to work at once and do away with the breeding place of the jersey skeeters that sing so persistently in Norwalk all summer long.

New professional at work at the Country Club

Robert Schart, the new professional at the Norwalk Country Club, started his summer work there today, May 1, and is getting the locker room and work room of the club in shape for the season. The course has been rolled several times this spring and the greens cut beautiful shape with the exception that the winter ice knocked some of the bridges across the run galley west, and they are being re-established. May players were out this week and this afternoon there is an excellent crowd on the course.

Junior play again gives town delight

Junior Class NHS, scored another triumph last night in the repetition of their clever class play, "The Whole Town's Talking," and delighted an enthusiastic audience.

The play itself is a remarkably clever one, bristling with humorous situations and lines.

Without question Edwin Lawrence, who played the leading role, is one of the most promising comedians the local school has ever produced, giving a realistic portrayal of an eccentric individual in remarkably clever fashion. Other leads were capably taken by Alan Angell, as the elderly sprig of fashion, Lucile Stratton as the daughter and Celestina Young as the movie star, and they were thoroughly delightful.

Harley Vinson is victor in battle with truck driver

County Road Officer Harley Vinson was victorious Friday in a battle with I.E. DeVol, a truck driver who was fined $5 later by Justice Scutt of Wakeman on the charge of driving through a barricade on the Main Wakeman Road near the Lorain County line.

Election board stays the same

Secy. Of State Thad H. Brown has announced the appointment of LeRoy Baker, R., New London, and J.F. Henninger, D. Monroeville, as members of the Huron County Board of Elections, both succeeding themselves. Both gentlemen have made excellent records as members of the board.
