Cat bit victim must take shots

A 7-year-old girl was scheduled to begin taking rabies shots today because of a cat bite suffered last Oct. 23.

The girl, Sally Sharbaugh, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B.W. Sharbaugh, of 54 S. Linwood, was bitten on the finger by a cat described as “red with a bent down ear.”

The cat was found Saturday and was being taken to a veterinarian where it escaped.

The girl’s finger became infected as a result of the bite.


Both sides step up charter campaigning

Both sides are stepping up campaigns on the city charter issue.

Huron County Sheriff John Borgia today joined city police and firemen in opposing the charter and both sides are spending money for advertising.

A pamphlet put out by a firemen-police committee opposing the charter is being distributed throughout the city. A citizens charter committee is buying radio and newsppaer advertising.
Sheriff Borgia said, in a statement released today, “Speaking for my department and myself I would like to say that we are in complete sympathy with the stand taken by Norwalk Police and Fire Departments with regards to their Civil Service status under the proposed Charter as it now is written.

“We have been unable to find anywhere in the Charter a place where the present Civil Services Status is protected.”
