  • Several homes in the Vintage Acres Trailer Court, 501 Stowe St. in Duluth, were damaged over the weekend when pipes froze and burst in the bitter cold. Some residents blame their oil supplier because the company's oil congealed, causing furnaces to fail.
  • The Duluth School Board learned yesterday that a bill passed in the Minnesota Legislature could cost the school district $3.85 million. The bill reduces funding based on numbers of students, as well as general state aid and money for vocational-technical institutes.

  • Duluth Police Chief W.E. Pugh has ordered the installation of 180 safety standards marking Duluth's sliding hills. Red cloth pennants will hang from the top of each four-foot standard to warn drivers that they are passing through a sledding intersection.
  • A 3,935-acre farm at Caribou Lake owned by George C. Stone was sold yesterday to Virgil Aydelott of West Duluth for $120,000. Mr. Aydelott said yesterday he will bring 100 head of cattle to the farm and make it one of the most modern dairies in the state.
