  • The Minnesota State High School League has rejected the Duluth School Board's plan to consolidate the Morgan Park and Denfeld high school athletic programs. League officials wouldn't agree to the plan because a lawsuit between the board and Morgan Park residents has not yet been settled.
  • Plans to establish a fire museum in Superior's soon-to-be-replaced East End fire hall gained support yesterday from the Superior City Council. Plans call for the fire hall at 402 23rd Ave. E. to be preserved as a landmark to keep Superior's fire history alive.

  • Forest fires that swept over Northeastern Minnesota yesterday were responsible for an estimated 1,000 homeless residents and much damage to property. As early as 8 p.m. yesterday and into the morning, refugees tramped into Duluth and were housed at the Armory.
  • What is described as the country's largest and most expensive high school building is nearing completion in Hibbing. The school, which will accommodate 3,500 students, has 80 classrooms, an auditorium that seats 2,500, a swimming pool, a large library, and machine and woodworking shops.
