News Tribune, Nov. 30, 1920
- Duluth city officials yesterday declared war on all reckless drivers, launching a plan to make the city's streets safe for pedestrians. The action follows Sunday night's accident when three people were hit by a speeding automobile while waiting for a street car.
- H.H. Grace, prominent Superior lawyer and financier, died last night at the home of his son, Clarence Grace, 867 W. Fifth St. Mr. Grace came to the Head of the Lakes in 1886 and was the first attorney in the village of Superior.
- The three suspects wanted for the Nov. 16 Superior State Bank robbery, now being held in Omaha, are fighting extradition to Superior. The trio has retained an attorney who has arranged for a hearing tomorrow before Nebraska Gov. S.R. McKelvie.
- Dr. I.H. Northfield, dentist for Duluth public schools, has procured the services of 30 dentists who will check all pupils and record any needed dental work. If parents are unable to afford the work, it will be done by Dr. Northfield.
