CITY COUNCIL MAKE CHANGES
Starting with receiving bids for the construction of a wooden trestle for the storage of coal for municipal and retail trade, the acceptance of the resignation of the chief engineer at the water and light plant, Scott Waite, and the increase in salaries for street commission from $85 to $100 a month and the chief of police from $75 to $80 per month, the city council has had a busy week.
SILVER CREEK WILL HAVE
The farmers in the Silver Creek district have been for some time desirous of having an extension of the telephone system and bring them into immediate relations with this and other cities. The Duluth and Iron Range telephone department has submitted a proposition to the famers with the idea they will build their line as far as Burlington Bay. The telephone is inestimable value to persons living in the rural districts.
THRONG ATTENDS DEDICATION
With all of the seating facilities filled, cars full of people parked in the blocks adjacent to the Thomas Owens Memorial Park and a large number standing, the dedication concert Sunday afternoon brought the appreciation of Two Harbors citizens for the new structure. The concert by the Two Harbors City Band, directed by Paul Gauche, was interspersed with talks by Mayor M. H. Brickley and Glen S. Locker of Duluth.

“WAR CHEST” HITS $35,950
Two Harbors’ Industrial “war chest” continued to grow today as an “army” of 100 volunteers continued a house-to-house solicitation in the residential and suburban areas. This brings the total received thus far to $35,950 more than a third of the $100,000 goal set by the Two Harbors Industrial Development council to bring industry to Two Harbors.
DO YOU REMEMBER?
Mercury Monterey…… “The style that makes sense! Monterey’s longer roofline shades your rear seat passengers and helps keep the whole car cooler and more comfortable. Only Monterey has the Breezeway Rear Window that opens at the touch of a button.” The Marauder 390-V8 is standard and it uses regular gas!
TOIVO BOUNCES BACK
The last heat spell almost ended our Toivo’s life when, in a desperate attempt to get some relief from the heat and humidity, Toivo climbed high up in his family tree and tumbled out. The rest of the story is unknown to Toivo who was found wandering the forest, in a daze early the next morning but the plucky old codger still relates his opinion on the weather. Rain.
BIG BEAVER STANDS TALL IN BEAVER BAY
John Gage of Two Harbors started with a nine foot log contributed by Mel Nickalson. Using a chain saw, the sculptor then spent 6 hours creating a statue of a beaver as a symbol of Beaver Bay. A concrete pedestal was constructed by volunteers and the symbol of Beaver Bay now reigns over the lawn of the town hall.
