The following day would be “Bicycle Claiming Day” at the Jamestown Police station where officers hoped they could reduce their stock of mislaid, abandoned or stolen bikes. Parents whose children had lost bicycles, one way or another through carelessness or theft, were urged to visit the station between 9 a.m. and noon Saturday. Children claiming bicycles had to be accompanied by a parent or guardian and all possible identification papers such as bike licenses or bills of sale should be brought along to provide additional identification. More than 20 bicycles had been picked up on sidewalks, empty lots and near schools by police officers during the past six months.

The Corning Republican said repeal of the catastrophic care plan would be unfortunate. He noted that 60 percent of the people covered would have paid just $4 per month for coverage. He recalled that he had seen many older people have to sell their homes when they or their spouses had become seriously ill.

Clark and Dennis Lawler, were arrested late the previous day on bench warrants issued by County Judge Thomas Dowd as the result of a John Doe investigation charging them with accepting a bribe and conducting a house of ill fame. Both were released on $1,000 bail and would have their examination on Friday morning before Judge Dowd. The information on which the warrants were issued was sworn out by Mayor W.H. Simpson after he had obtained affidavits from Mrs.
