DEMOCRATS WIN SWEEPING VICTORY
With the most unanimous vote ever given presidential candidates, the Wilson-Marshall presidential ticket was swept into office on Tuesday. In Minnesota, democratic leaders are claiming Minnesota by plurality of 20,000 in the presidential run. The vote in Lake County was the largest ever cast and results so badly mixed that it is hard to figure out the exact “why” in some cases with the Socialists making gains.

THE FORGOTTEN MAN IS HIT BY RULING
No longer will the “forgotten man” with just the price of a pint be able to quench his thirst. Under the most recent ruling by the liquor commission the decree states that nothing smaller than one-fifth gallon containers may be sold in on-sale liquor establishments when the present stocks are exhausted. The bottle restriction was made because of reports that on-sale dealers were doing a big trade in half-pint and one pint containers and the smaller container was the favorite means of distribution by the bootleggers. The smaller container also is the favorite of those who carry their liquor into the taverns where nothing stronger than beer is supposed to be drunk.
BLANKS DUE FOR CENSUS
Blanks for the national unemployment census are expected to be in the hands of postal employees Nov. 16 for distribution to the unemployed. This is a nation-wide census of all unemployed and partially unemployed persons in the United Stated that will be taken between Nov. 16 -20 by act of Congress and at the direction of President Roosevelt. The purpose is to get an accurate count of the unemployed and partially unemployed in the United States who are seeking work. According to a statement by President Roosevelt, “If you give me the facts, I shall try to use them for the benefit of all who need and want work and do not now have it.”
AMBULANCE FUND DRIVE STARTED
A fund campaign to purchase a new ambulance to serve the Two Harbors area was launched this week by volunteer workers. The new ambulance would replace the one in service here since 1957 which is a converted truck and is not fully equipped or capable of handling all emergencies. The cost of the new ambulance is $8,000. The older ambulance would be retained as an auxiliary unit. The campaign is being handled by the Volunteer Ambulance Drivers, a group of 11 men who are on call for ambulance driving duty.

NAVY LEAGUE OPTING FOR TWO HARBORS
After visiting Two Harbors last week, Navy League officials were so impressed that now say the town is the best berth for the USS Newport News. The massive ship is 717 feet long and towers 138 feet above the water line. The league wants to bring the WW II vintage heavy cruiser to western Lake Superior for use as a floating museum. It was at first thought that Duluth would be the home port but the officials have become disenchanted and are leaning toward Two Harbors. If all goes well financially, the ship would be towed into Agate Bay by Memorial Day and could open for limited tours on July 4.
HIKING TRAIL CREW STRAINS TO REACH NEW HEIGHTS
The first few hikes on a new stretch of trail between Split Rock State Park and Beaver Bay are likely to scare up more than a few grouse. Hiking along the trails it must be pretty strange to see not only the wildlife but middle-aged men straining and sweating as they pull out rocks, stumps and anything else that might trip-up a hiker says Jerry Herzog. He and a half dozen former Reserve Mining Company workers from Silver Bay have spent the past few months cutting about 12 miles of trail across tough terrain with the hope that one day there will be a continuous hiking trail from Duluth to the Canadian border.
