News Tribune, June 23, 1920
- The steamer Noronic opened the Duluth passenger season for Northern Navigation Lines yesterday morning when she arrived with a party of 150 persons from Detroit. The ship then left Duluth at 4 p.m. with the excursion party and 108 other passengers.
- Superior police believe the danger of robberies downtown has been greatly reduced by the recent installation of arc lights in the alleys near Tower Avenue. The city installed the lights in alleys between Ogden Avenue and Banks Avenue.
- Forty Duluth boys will be guests of the Big Brothers of the Rotary Club tomorrow to open the 23rd season at Camp Miller, the YMCA summer camp on Sturgeon Lake. A boathouse and an administration house have been added to the camp this year.
- The Glass Block store in Duluth will be closed today while all employees attend the store's annual picnic at Lake Nebagamon. They will leave the Soo Station at 8 a.m. and ride the train to Lake Nebagamon, where a picnic dinner and other activities have been arranged.
