The top stories in the Norwalk Reflector-Herald on this date 75 years ago:

Community supports temporary restrictions

The people of Norwalk and Huron County clearly showed today that they realized that local banking restrictions resulted wholly from outside influence and that the action constituted the best possible protection for each and every depositor in view of the developments elsewhere. This was shown by the normal processes of business in the banks here today. Also many people voted these sentiments. Even more concretely this favorable reaction was expressed in new deposits received yesterday and today by the local bank. There are no limitations on new deposits.

Jim Repac killed by steam train

The body of a man found yesterday afternoon at the side of the W. & L. E. railway about a mile west of the Lorain county line has been identified as Jim Repac, evidently from Stover.

Acting Coroner Earl W. Clark expresses the opinion death occurred while the man was alighting from a train. The body was brought to Laible & Brady’s funeral home.

Hint pleasing surprise is due Norwalk

A special meeting of the city council called by mayor Cort M. Schock for this evening at the council chamber, probably will bring forth an announcement that will prove a pleasant surprise to the citizens of the city.

No information has been given out as to the nature of the meeting, but it is hinted that the surprise factor will be an agreeable surprise to the citizenship of the city.

Car hits dog

A collie dog, owned by Lynn L. Kellogg and family of Benedict Ave., suffered a broken hip yesterday when hit by a motor car. The driver did not stop. A veterinarian is making an effort to save the dog’s life.

Hold Heitz rites here

Funeral services for Mildred Heitz, six year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Heitz, who died at the home of her parents at 57 Cline St., were held at St. Paul’s Catholic Church this morning. Rev. Fr. Sattler said mass and the sermon was preached by the Rev. Fr. Frost. Pupils of the St. Paul’s grade school attended the rites in a body. Miss Heitz had attended the first grade at St. Paul’s until ill health prevented her form doing so.

Pall bearers were Norman Bell, Paul Smith, John Cook, Donald Smith, Carl Ringhole and Jack Reineck. Interment was made in St. Paul’s Cemetery.
