County banks await orders
Local banks, like all others, are operating today under the extended national holiday restrictions. They are keeping closely in touch with new developments and new rulings in order that no time may be lost in taking advantage of the first opportunity to resume regular service.
Since the holiday went into effect there has been a continuous flow of instructions and rulings form state and national authorities. Among the various points yet to be clarified is the question of payrolls under the present operating instructions. From Washington it was announced that payrolls could be released this week, however, there seems to be some question as to whether or how this is allowable and probably no action can be taken until a definite ruling can be obtained.
Stacey starts court
action to regain dog
Jamces C. Stacey of Norwalk has begun replevin action in municipal court at Sandusky to regain possession of Lobo, a police dog, from Mrs. Ada Snyder of 808 W. Washington St.
Mr. Stacey's fine German police dog was stolen about a year ago and every possible information that might lead to its location was carefully used. Norwalk people, who had occasion to go to Kentucky went out of their way several months ago to check up on a stray police dog that had been harbored by a physician. This did not prove to be the dog. Several other unsuccessful trips were made by Mr. Stacey without success. Through a tip given by a Norwalk man, Mr. Stacey found that the Sandusky woman had a dog that resembled Lobo. When Stacey saw the dog, it revealed much joy and displayed the usual leaping and tail wagging action of a dog that is confronted by his master.
Mrs. Snyder has contended that the dog is legally hers as she took it from the dog pound and purchased a tag for it. Arnold Whetstone, dog warden, said he kept it beyond the time when the law requires that animals be killed and found a home for it.
