The top stories in the Norwalk Reflector-Herald on this date 73 years ago:

Wet in July, dry later on, says Schillig

A wet July, and scarcity of moisture in August and September are forecasted by Dr. J. Schillig, Norwalk chiropractor, in his regular weather prediction for the summer.

At the beginning of last spring, Dr. Schillig declared there would be so little moisture that he feared to have the full weight of his forecast given to the public because of the alarm it might cause. The doctor at that time said there would be little rain and much crop damage because of drought.

July is likely to be a rainy month but there probably will not be enough moisture in the following months for requirements. Many districts will need water and plenty of it the last two months of summer, said Dr. Schillig.

Child 3 Run over by car, not badly hurt

Although Frank Zeiter, three-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Zeiter of 21 Rule St., was knocked down and run over by a motor car Sunday on E. Main St., near Milan Ave., he was only slightly hurt.

The car passed over the boy without touching him. An ambulance took the boy to Memorial Hospital where it was found that he was only slightly bruised. The child had run away from home.

Young woman ends life by taking poison

Miss Gertrude Delzeit, 30, of 3735 Seymour Ave., Cleveland, committed suicide late last night or early this morning. Death occurred at the home of her aunt, Mrs. Henry Riesen, who lives two miles east of Clarksfield Hollow.

Coroner C.. Bell reports an empty bottle was found that contained 100 tables of strychnine sulphate of one sixtieth of a gram each.

The girl came to the Riesen home on Sunday in a car driven by her young cousin, Bud Riesen. She stopped at Oberlin where she is believed to have bought the drug.

The father arrived today at W.L. Pease's Funeral Home in Wakeman, where the body is being prepared for burial. Relatives report the girl had been despondent. A definite motive for the suicide has not been determined.
