Two North Junior High School students, Linda Cosnay and Lorraine Meier, called attention to National Book Week at their school. A panel discussion would be held at the school's PTA meeting. Panelists were William Osborne, principal; Leonard Lillibridge, vice principal, and Viola Oursler, girls' counselor.
Ardelle Meyer led the first division with 36 in Everett Golf and Country Club's competition on better nine. Virginia Ames was behind by half a point. Dorothy Barton was second division leader, also with 36, and Tressa Almvig was runnerup with 38.

Signs reading, "Test Area Turn On Headlights," were erected on a stretch of U.S. 2 near Snohomish. The Washington State Patrol and Department of Transportation were trying the signs as an experiment to reduce accidents.
A 30-foot-high, 850-pound totem pole was wrestled into its new home at the Edmonds Civic Center this morning by Dave Freiss and Randy Horning, both from General Telephone. The 41-year-old pole, carved by retired logger and woodworker Tim Davis, was owned by the Edmonds Historical Museum and recently given to the city.
