Notes from Susanville
February 14th, 1941
Players from the Reno Little Theater presented “Room Service,” Friday night at the Sierra Theater to a crowded house who received the production with enthusiasm and appreciation.
Edwin Semenza, director of the play, was a former member of the Lassen high school staff. The Monticola Club sponsored the play.
Three hundred and fifty men returned to work at the Fruit Growers mill this morning, following a two month’s lay-off for machinery repairs.
According to Tom K. Oliver, resident manager of the Fruit Growers Supply Company, a three rig-basis will be in operation. Lassen Lumber and Box Company of Susanville has continued running this winter and hopes to increase its output during this coming season.
Two airplanes were flown here Friday evening by Al Reese, local flying instructor of the CAA, and Joe Corwin of Los Angeles, government licensed certified aviation mechanic, for use at the local air field for flight instruction.
Soule and Reese have laid a cement floor in their hangar, to meet government requirements. Inspector E. E. Hughes of Salt Lake City, aeronautical flight examiner and inspector, inspected the work the early part of the week. He will return later for further inspection.
Judge Ben V. Curler, in a recent court decision, ordered $800 paid Fred Metz of the Riverside Garage and Ira Purdy, garageman, by Lassen county, former supervisor, James B. Leavitt and his bondsmen, Hartford Accident and Indemnity Company.
Metz and Purdy sued jointly for the recovery of materials, labor and rental of equipment used in road district No. 2 during Leavitt’s term of office. The board of supervisors paid the claim at a recent meeting.
