  • Comedy, tragedy, and melodrama were enacted last evening in Duluth's First Methodist Church when Ruth Draper, considered the most accomplished of living reciters, appeared in original character sketches. The large audience showed its appreciation with a veritable storm of applause.
  • The six divisions of the Duluth Grade School Baseball League will open their seasons next Saturday when 24 teams go into action. Games will be played on the fields at Morgan Park, Fairmount, Denfeld, Harrison, Observation, Washington, Chester, Salter, Washburn, Grant, and Lester Park.
