Norwalk lauded for its large Legion roster
About a dozen Norwalk Legion men attended the northwestern Ohio district conference of the organization at Mansfield on Sunday. State membership, Ohio's endowment campaign and other important matters were considered. It was announced that Elyria citizens have agreed to finance the state convention if that city is favored by being tendered the meeting. Mention was made that Norwalk has the largest post of any city in the state of its population class.
Roomer ousted case to be heard here Saturday
Whether a married man is able to oust an undesirable male boarder and roomer from his house will be decided Saturday in Judge Irving Carpenter's court.
Joseph H. Brugger of 136 Harkness Street, is the plaintiff. He asked the court to force John Ed Harvey to leave his home. In a petition filed here last week, Brugger alleges that Harvey has been at his home since August 1924 and that he refused to work although able bodied and well able to do so. It also is alleged in the petition that Harvey exerts an influence on the plaintiff's wife.
Saturday was a very busy day
Merchants agree that there were more customers thronging Norwalk stores Saturday night than have crowded the town since Christmas. The pleasant day brought forth hundreds of people and many who have been postponing their spring buying came in with a rush on the first warm day. Overcoats disappeared as by magic and at least one straw hat was seen on the street Saturday worn by a Norwalk man. May 15 is the final call for felt hats and the inaugural of straws.
A.C. Henry, well known citizen, is taken by death
A.C. Henry, aged 65 and a well-known resident of the city and for many years permanently identified with the LSE Ry., died at his home, 267 E. Main Street, after a brief illness of kidney trouble.
He is survived by his widow, a son, Arthur, of Cleveland, two daughters, Mrs. Harry messenger and Mrs. Fred Walker, both of Detroit, a sister, Mrs. Ross Glessner of Mansfield, and the brothers, Charles of Shelby, William of Mansfield and George of Cleveland.
