We cannot secure free mail delivery

A few weeks ago, the Journal News suggested the advisability of our citizens making another effort to secure free mail delivery. The city council very commendably took the matter up and made a vigorous effort to get favorable action from the Post Office Department. A resolution was adopted favoring the move and letters were addressed to Congressman Clarence B. Miller, Senators Nelson and Clapp and the Post Office Department. Replies have been received by all. Clarence B. Miller said the only objection was that the space for the handling and sorting the mail in the local post office was too small, but that he assured results in the near future. Senator Nelson wrote that he would be glad to aid and would do everything in his power to get free delivery for the city. Senator Clapp wrote that it was impossible to get free deliver for this city at present as the receipts from the local post office were below the minimum required, but stated that if the receipts were more than the required $10,000 for 1914, it would enable the post office authorities to make a more determined effort. Local citizens have been very active.

Big Crowds see finale program

Queen Susan Cavallin and her princess, Wanda Rose, presided over the final events of the 1964 Winter Frolic festivities at Thomas Lake Sunday, following their coronation at the high school auditorium the previous evening. “Miss Two Harbors” will spend a busy year representing the city at such events as the Minneapolis Aquatennial, the Duluth Portorama, the Lake County Fair and other functions. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Swaney Cavallin. The night before her coronation, what was described as “the best ever” talent show entertained a big crowd at the high school. Thursday evening at least 800 persons of all ages dined on pancakes and sausages. It was believed to be a record crowd. The fishing derby at Thomas Lake Sunday was the windup of the 1964 Frolic and a big crowd of anglers and watchers was on hand for the event with weather ideal for the event this year.
