News Tribune, May 29, 1973 Motorists traveling through Duluth over the Memorial Day weekend apparently encountered no problems buying gasoline despite the gas shortage. Warnings had gone out that drivers who took to the highway over the holiday might have trouble finding gas. Only a few dozen people took part in public Memorial Day services in Duluth yesterday to remember the dead from the nation’s conflicts. Veterans groups paid tribute to their fallen comrades at five locations in the Duluth area.
Residents in Duluth’s upper Woodland neighborhood were without drinking water for about four hours yesterday after a concentrated dose of chlorine was accidentally leaked into water lines. Authorities aren’t sure what caused the leak or how much chlorine got into the water. Singer Tony Bennett yesterday canceled last night’s concert in the Auditorium at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center, complaining of a chest cold. Contacted in his Duluth hotel, Bennett said it was only the second show he’d missed in the last 40 years.
