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

Woman found unconscious in her auto

A young woman was found in an unconscious condition just before noon today in her car which was parked on Rte. 20 in front of Fishers Wayside Furniture.

Highway patrolmen, who identified her as Janet Wirt, 24, of 1389 Richey Road, Stow, O., reported the victim had taken an overdose of sleeping pills.

The woman was taken to the hospital in a Johnson-Young ambulance. Her condition was described as "Fair."

City coffers enriched by mayor's court

Income of the Mayor's office and court during the month of January amounted to $1,695 of which $1,129.75 was turned over to the city's general fund.

The balance of the total collection was distributed as follows:

State treasurer, $200.25, representing one-half of fines on highway patrol cases; Huron County Law Library Association, $350; county treasurer, $15.

During January Mayor Louis Frey heard a total of 73 cases, most of which dealt with various traffic law violations.

North Fairfield happenings

Trucker grid outfits, equipment being readied for new season

Ever wonder what happens to the Norwalk High Truckers football gear at the end of the season?

Like the athletes who wear them, sports equipment must "get into condition" and an Elyria firm handles the chore for hundreds of schools across the nation, including Norwalk, Ohio.

The All-American Co., now in its 13th year, is the outfit which lifts the burden of equipment reconditioning from the shoulders of many athletic directors from Maine to California and from Washington to Florida.

Business is booming now at the 27,000 square foot building near the New York Central freight depot.
