SCHEDULE OUT FOR BASEBALL LEAGUE
The baseball fans of this city are gratified to learn that plans have been perfected for the formation of a city league and a schedule has been arranged for four teams. In the past the grounds were too far from the downtown district and not supported as they should have been, but with a league playing ball on what is known as the “shop grounds” at the west end of Second Avenue, it will be more convenient for the people to attend the games. The four teams are named: Senators, Highlanders, Colts, and Grand Old Men.
SPEED LIMITS DEFINED
To clarify in the driving public’s mind what constitutes unlawful speed, here follows an explanation. On unzoned streets within the corporate limits of cities and villages, the law establishes a speed limit of 30 mph. On highways not zoned the speed limit is 45 mph. The 60 mph- zoned highway areas, however, drop to 50 mph after sundown.
CLUBHOUSE REMOVAL IS BEGUN
Work on dismantling the old DM&IR clubhouse on First Avenue and Seventh Street was begun this week by three local men who purchased the old structure from the railroad company. Purchasing the building was Quentin Puent, David Puent and Walter Dahl all of Two Harbors. The big frame structure was abandoned as of Jan. 1, and bids for its sale were called by the railroad company. It was operated first as a YMCA and then by the Employees Association over the long period of its existence in the Lake county seat.
TOIVO HAS A THEORY
Toivo has a carefully thought-out plan to keep the surplus of pesky, bloodthirsty flying creatures in check. After many, many years of observation it became clear to him that as the trees leaf out, the bugs fly out… therefore leaves equals bugs. The plan is to control the leaf population in northern Minnesota. His calculation: one tree will supply enough bugs for one bird or bat, anything in excess of that ratio creates those extra hungry bugs that attack man and beast. All he needs now are volunteers to help determine the present ratio of leafy trees vs. birds and bats.
