- A Catholic boarding school for boys and a new cathedral are possible projects for a site just purchased by the Diocese of Superior. The property takes up an entire square block bounded by Baxter and Cumming avenues and 14th and Belknap streets.
- An abundance of Easter lilies is promised for Easter by Duluth florists, who have taken precautions to meet the demand for this popular seasonal flower. The unusual demand for the Easter lily last year caused the florists to enlarge their supply this season.
