“LIVING WAGE” LAW EFFECTIVE TOMORROW
All women employed in Minnesota must be paid “living wages” after tomorrow when the minimum wage law, enacted by the legislature last winter, goes into effect. The law is unlike any other in the state. It provides for a wage commission and gives this body authority to investigate the wages paid women and minors. Whenever the commission finds that a class of workers is underpaid, it shall establish a minimum wage scale by which the employer must abide.
CHILDREN’S SONG FESTIVAL HERE SOON
The Whole Year Round, a cantata introducing 200 children’s voices will be given in Two Harbors within the next two weeks. Mrs. George Raymond Dolf, a musical director from New York City, was here making the arrangements. Catchy music, pretty costumes, maypole dance and the jolly old snow man will be the delightful features of this festival.
CARDINALS MAY TRAIN HERE
The Chicago Cardinals professional football team is seriously considering Two Harbors for training for the coming season, which opens with the initial game against the Chicago Bears at Chicago Sept. 11. Arch Wolf, manager of the team, sent a telegram to Mayor M. H. Brickley stating he will be in Two Harbors the middle of the week to look over the training field. The Chicago Cardinals are owned by Charles Bidwell and coached by Miles Creighton and Bullet Baker. There are more than fifty persons in the organization.
DIZZY DAME CREATES PANIC
A dizzy dame encumbered with a hangover caused a major panic and no small embarrassment to the proprietors of the Rustic Inn, where the furor occurred. At a recent dinner party, the wife of one of the party abruptly left the table without explanation. Failing to return in a reasonable length of time, her husband enlisted the aid of the sheriff, his deputies, the police and members of the Rustic Inn to search for his missing spouse. Searching the premises with no results, the waters and shoreline of Burlington Bay were searched by the Coast Guardsmen. The search was ended when milady nonchalantly appeared on the scene refreshed and quite composed. She had found a vacant room to sleep off the effects of the party.
CITY COUNCIL ACTIVITIES
The regular session of the Two Harbors City Council has appointed Robert Sandness to the Two Harbors police force taking the place of Charles Lee Carlson, who resigned to accept an appointment as deputy U.S. Marshall for Minnesota. It has also adopted a suggestion made in a letter from the Two Harbors Civic Association that efforts be made to have the state highway department place “absolute” speed limit signs of 30 mph on Highway 61 from the cemetery corner to the underpass.
