- Members of the Duluth post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars last night discussed organizing a women's auxiliary. The post is planning a drive to enroll 500 women who are wives, sisters, and daughters of men who have served in U.S. forces on foreign soil.
- Temperatures in the mid-40s in Duluth yesterday caused the postponement of matches in the Northwestern Curling Bonspiel at the Curling Club. Ice conditions in the building had deteriorated enough to make curling impossible, and matches are scheduled to start again at 2:30 p.m. today.
- Sixty men have requested application forms to take the examination this Saturday for eight vacancies in the Duluth Post Office. The unusually large number of vacancies is due to private industries offering higher salaries than the Post Office, according to Duluth Postmaster Thomas Considine.
- A capacity crowd filled the Shrine Auditorium last night for the performance of Duluth native Emily Schupp, who dances under the name Lada. The American Legion, under whose auspices Lada appeared, presented her with an enormous bouquet of American Beauty roses.
