Lassen Youth Gets Disney Award
June 20, 1941

Frank Maurino has received a scholarship to the Walt Disney Art school, which he will enter in August. He graduated from junior college this month, and has outstanding talent in art.

Leslie Warden of Susanville was elected president of the Northern California Sportsmen’s council at a dinner held at Hotel Mt. Lassen Saturday. Walter Evans of Weed was selected vice president and W. I. Humphreys of Dunsmuir was reelected secretary-treasurer.

The organization asked the state highway commission and its agencies to post highway markings at deer crossing to reduce motor hazards and save so many deer from being killed.

The next meeting will be held at Redding, central headquarters of the council.

      I was in Susanville this past weekend. Many prominent businesses of our era are closed. Barron Chevrolet, and Deal and Davie, both vacant. Realtor offices in others.
