50 YEARS AGO:

Sen. John Spottswood filed a suit to force the Monroe County Commission to put the question of establishment of a Monroe County High Authority on the November ballot.

No one from the city government or commission seemed to known how Telegraph Lane got changed to Wolfson Way.

Paul Dockery, Howard Hall and Robert Stout were ordained as deacons in the First Baptist Church.

The governor cleared Assistant County Solicitor William V. Albury of any wrongdoing in clumsy attempt by an ex-con to cause trouble.
