Miss Dorothy Lee to be star of pageant at fair

Miss Dorothy F. Lee of Norwalk has been selected to be Miss Progress, the star of the Pageant of the Firelands, to be the big spectacle at the Huron County Fair.

And a Monroeville young lady, not yet named, will be Miss Patriotism, the second lead.

Decision was reached today when the Fair Board awarded the prize of $100 cash to Mrs. Mert Day for having sold the most contest tickets, and the second prize of $50 to J.H. Henninger of Monroeville.

Mrs. Day at once named Miss Lee as her substitute to take the stellar role in the pageant; Mr. Henninger, who is treasurer of the fair board, declined to accept his prize money, turning it back into the treasury, but stated he would name a Monroeville young lady to be Miss Patriotism.

The board’s coffers were enriched more than $700 by the contest.

Marshal Burkett got in the car with Reece Adams while the deputy took Arna Whitt. When they reached the jail, the marshal started to get out of the big car, a Ford coupe, and Adams struck him in the jaw and began to fight like a wildcat.
