  • Virginia police yesterday started a crusade to drive vice out of the city, arresting 11 people in several early morning raids. It is believed to be the start of a cleanup campaign to hunt down and close every disorderly house in town.
  • Duluth and Superior city football teams will play for the Twin Ports championship this Sunday at Hislop Park in Superior. The game was to have been played last Sunday but had to be postponed because of the cold weather.
  • Commencement exercises of the St. Luke's Hospital training school for nurses will take place on the evening of Nov. 30 at St. Paul's Church. Rev. A.W. Ryan, board president, will present diplomas, and a reception at the Kitchi Gammi Club will follow the ceremony.
  • St. Louis County potatoes, which won every first prize at the state potato show in the Duluth Armory earlier this month, won most of the medals yesterday at the Midwest Horticultural Exhibit in Iowa. This puts the county ahead of all Minnesota counties in potato-raising.

Bygones is researched and written by David Ouse, retired reference librarian from the Duluth Public Library. He can be contacted at djouse49@gmail.com.
