The top stories in the Reflector-Herald on this date 49 years ago:

New beer, wine store is planned

George Schild, operator of the IGA Foodliner, announced today that the sale of high-powered beer and wine for which he was issued a license by the Ohio Department of Liquor Control, will be conducted at a new building to be erected soon.

The new structure, of more than 1,200 square feet, will be located centrally at the northern end of the market's parking lot and adjacent to the motel, which adjoins the property, Mrs. Schild said.

NHS football coach addresses Lions Club

James Curry, the new football coach at Norwalk High School, addressed the members of the Lions Club at their luncheon on Tuesday at which time he explained various phases of football and the Norwalk team in general.

Dr. Noraman Ross, program chairman, introduced the speaker and Sam Giallombardo presided at the business meeting.

Entertains Bridge Club

Mrs. Dudley A. White Jr. entertained her bridge club last evening with Mrs. Norman Rau as a guest.

Prizes for the evening were awarded to Mrs. K. Flickinger and Mrs. E.J. Gerken. Mrs. Robert Price and Mrs. Gerken were the recipients of the slam pot.

At a late hour a tempting dessert was served by the hostess and the group adjourned to meet Oct. 8 with Mrs. Henry Young.

Flyers Linemen and Back of Week

Coach Tony Paris, after viewing the movies of the grid game against the Tiffin Calvert Senecas, has announced his choices for Lineman and Back of the Week honors.

In the line, Larry Rospert grabbed top honors, but he was followed very closely by Dick Mahaffey. Rospert, who plays a guard on offense and a tackle on defense, weighs about 180 while Mahaffey, who weighs around 200, plays the tackle position on both offense and defense.

Again Coach Paris was forced to pick Don Dempsey for Back of the Week honors. Dempsey scored one of the Flyers' two touchdowns in their losing effort against Tiffin. He also played a stellar game as a defensive halfback.
