  • Emerson and Irving elementary schools, both scheduled for demolition, were given a 60-day reprieve by the Duluth School Board yesterday. If no viable alternative use of the buildings is presented within 60 days, the demolition will probably be carried out.
  • The Duluth Transit Authority is asking the federal Urban Mass Transit Administration for permission to conduct a $120,000 study exploring transit alternatives for Duluth. One plan under consideration is to build a monorail-like cable car system across the length of the city.

  • Plans are being discussed for a mammoth picnic Aug. 10 at the Duluth Automobile Club at Pike Lake. The event will be staged cooperatively by 28 farmers' organizations and Duluth civic clubs and will feature sporting competitions and music by the American Legion Band.
  • Children on roller skates will add a novel section to Superior's Fourth of July parade, organized by the American Legion and city club women. The parade, to take place on Tower Avenue, will be a pageant portraying the history and development of Superior.
