Mrs. Lyman F. Scott, 43, formerly Laura Pierce of Wakeman, was killed, and her husband and two daughters were seriously injured, in a motor wreck on the ice-coated pavement of Center Ridge Road in Dover Village last night.

Scott’s car, after skidding, swerved to one side directly in front of a Cleveland Southwestern bus. In the terrific collions that followed, Mr. Scott was hurled upon the pavement and Mrs. Scott was buried in the wreckage. The children, Marilyan, aged 6, and Patricia, aged 9, were in the back seat.


Luther rally will be held 3 p.m. Sunday

The 450th anniversary of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther will be celebrated by the Lutheran churches of the Norwalk area at St. Peters Lutheran Church Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock instead of Sunday morning.

Jacob Schwann, prominent farmer dwelling east of town on No. 20, and a member of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, has vivid recollections of the 400th Luther anniversary celebration held in Norwalk 50 years ago. He was a young boy at that time and with his parents and family, all came in for the day from Pontiac, where they lived, which was an all-day journey over terrible roads. He says the celebration was attended by enormous crowds from all the country round-about.
