  • Two Duluth city councilors are opposing a proposal to hire a city purchasing agent. Objections raised by Mr. Phillips and Mr. Murnian include the opposition to hiring any additional employees and the idea that a city purchasing agent would be too liable for graft.
  • A post office substation in Duluth's West End is a possibility in the very near future, Postmaster Considine said yesterday. The substation could be located in the central part of the business district and have a permanent staff member in charge.
