Super-Officer Lassen Claim
April 10, 1921

M. J. Tilley, a local official, is not worried by the country-wide unemployment situation.

Besides being city clerk he also holds positions as fire chief, city engineer, superintendent of streets, high school trustee, engineer for a recently formed highway district and last week received an appointment from the county board of supervisors to serve as county surveyor to fill the four-year unexpired term of the late C. F. Caughell.

Susanville Fixes Paving Program

The faction which instituted the recall election against Trustees Brietweiser and Matthews of the town board is now working to defeat the recall as the result of a truce arrived at between the fractions favoring and disfavoring paving where-by certain streets are to be paved and other streets left unpaved.

In general the anti-paving faction agree to permit the paving and guttering and installing of electroliers on the principal business streets and in return the trustees agree to drop the movement to pave residential streets, confining the improvements there to sidewalks.

This is believed to end a controversy which has raged for months and has resulted in court injunctions and the recall proceedings. The recall vote is expected to be light and the improvements planned are to be installed during the coming summer.
