TWO HARBORS GETS INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL
Two Harbors is one of fourteen schools in the state to receive $2,500 annually for an industrial school. It will aid the agricultural department at the high school. Mr. H. S. Alton, inspector of state high schools, was recently here and taken around to be shown the work that is being done by the school and taken into the country with the working farmers to witness the success of the farmers taking part in the program. The agricultural program is under the direct supervision of Mr. McPheeters.
TOURIST BUREAU OPENS HERE
The Two Harbors Information Bureau, sponsored by the Lake County Development Association, will open Friday morning in the Cullen building on Sixth Street with George Waxlax and Harry Johnson as attendants. The association was desirous of placing the bureau on Seventh Avenue, but the Cullen building is the only place suitable in the city and will be quite satisfactory when the directive signs are placed.
GRADUATION DAYS SET
The current school year reaches its climax in the coming week as the Class of 1963 is to be graduated from Two Harbors High School on June 6. A total of 97 students are in this graduation class. The class will be presented by Principal Frederick C. Ojala.
William M. Kelley High School celebrated the graduation of 54 seniors on Wednesday night. Joann Backlund is valedictorian and Janice Strand the salutatorian.
OH NO! HERE COME THOSE PESKY ARMY WORMS AGAIN.
They are on the march, although they are probably more of an annoyance than a real threat. The Army worms, more correctly known as forest tent caterpillars, are defoliating aspen and birch trees in patches of forest across the region. While the worms are working over some areas pretty thoroughly, they are pretty well limited to certain areas. “Up (Highway) 2 between here and Five Mile Hill, it’s really getting chewed”. The attack this year is not nearly as bad as some years past, like 1979 and 1980 when they made the roads slippery and the railroad had to break up the number of rail cars as the engines could not get enough traction on hills covered with the worms.
