Submitted by Les Niemi

January 16, 1919


Boys who throw snow balls on Main street or throw snow balls at girls will be arrested and fined according to notice published elsewhere in The Tornado by the city authorities.  Several of the smaller girls have been struck by hard snow balls and in some cases injured so badly that they were compelled to stay out of school.  The parents of the girls who have received black eyes and other injuries by the carelessness of the boys have made complaint and now all boys who throw snow balls on Main street or at the girls will be arrested
