News Tribune, Sept. 15, 1920

  • Acting Duluth Police Chief A.G. Fiskett reported yesterday that fewer automobiles have been stolen so far this year than in the same period last year. "The wave of petty crime which followed the breaking up of the World War is subsiding," Chief Fiskett said.
  • A recent editorial in the Duluth News Tribune proposed that the wooded land from Bardon's Peak to the western city limits be preserved as a game refuge. The editorial suggested that the city purchase the land at a cost estimated at about $50,000.
  • Duluth will be among the first cities in Minnesota this fall to use women as election judges. City Clerk Fred Ash yesterday said, "women have shown that they are interested in becoming acquainted with methods of government and they are entitled to every opportunity."
  • The idea of a traveling library to serve the smaller communities in St. Louis County will be discussed today at the Minnesota Library Association meeting in Hibbing. The county already has tentative plans to purchase books and an automobile to provide the service.
