Women's suffrage to be discussed

At a special meeting held in Duluth on Wednesday, which was attended by four Two Harbors delegates, Mrs. Bereha Moller, suffrage chairman of the Minnesota district, gave a very interesting and instructive talk on "The Present Political Aspect of the Suffrage Question."

Mrs. Moller has consented to repeat her talk in the Two Harbors High School assembly room on Saturday at 8 p.m.

She is highly entertaining and her subject matter is particularly interesting and instructive at this time, when President Wilson has called for a special session of Congress, during which the much talked of suffrage amendment will again be introduced. Many countries of the world have granted suffrage to women since the beginning of the great world war, but the United States has not done so yet.

Scenic point arch falls

For many thousands of years, there has been a natural arch formation known as the "Natural Arch" located a few hundred yards from Flood Bay to the west on Fisherman's Point. The arch was formed from a sharp jet of land, which protrudes into the lake being constantly washed by the waves. The arch was approximately 10-12 feet wide, space enough for row boats to pass under it and the height of the arch to the water varies with the water level.

But as nature has built this fine sturdy rock formation, nature has also destroyed this scenic point. The actual time of destruction is not known definitely, but it is guessed that it happened this winter.

First coho to swim into Superior today

Minnesota will make its first stocking of coho salmon into Lake Superior today, it was announced by the Conservation Department. A total of 100,000 fish will be stocked into the lake by way of French River during the next few days. Each truckload of salmon will be kept overnight in raceway in the French River hatchery to adjust to the change of water and be released the following day.

This will be the first attempt by Minnesota to create spawning runs of coho in Lake Superior. Conservation Department fisheries specialists view the stocking as an experiment which will determine whether coho can make a significant contribution to Lake Superior fishing.

The coho being stocked are only 6 inches in length, but will grow to a size to attract anglers by the end of the summer. They should grow to an average length of 20 inches by fall of 1970, when they return to spawn.
