  • Negotiations on a new contract between the Duluth Transit Authority and the union representing its drivers and mechanics begin tomorrow. The current three-year contract, which expires Nov. 30, covers 100 full-time and 12 part-time workers.

  • The Duluth Automobile Club yesterday passed a resolution demanding that all motor vehicle operators be required to furnish a bond or be covered by insurance. The resolution states that all drivers should be held responsible for any damage or injury they may cause.
  • Approximately 100 Duluthians have already cast their votes in the Nov. 7 general election, Walter Borgen, county auditor, said yesterday. The votes were cast by persons designated as "absent voters," voters who expect to be out of the city on election day.
