130 YEARS AGO
Clerical Row: George B. Allen, late Rector of St. Peter’s Church and recently Rector of the Episcopal Church in Petaluma, Calif., has resigned. The Bishop got into a row about the kind of wine to be used at Communion. Such bickerings diminish the influence of the Church. We can scarcely believe that the Deity cares much whether carmine ink or pure imported port is used.
120 YEARS AGO
Pasturage: Kirman’s ranch on Penitentiary road is unfit for pasturage as the contents of all the sewers in Carson and the Prison lodge are upon the premises.
70 YEARS AGO
Black Bomber: Joe Louis knocked out giant Abe Simon in the sixth round. Louis was fighting for the first time since he entered the army and achieved his knockout at 16 seconds of the sixth round.
50 YEARS AGO
Ed Jesse, previous coach at Lovelock, has been named head football coach at Carson High School for the coming year.
30 YEARS AGO
Home investing has a good future: Home equity accounts for about 40 percent of all recorded personal wealth.

The number of people in the prime home buying age group of 25 to 44 years will increase to 31 percent.
10 YEARS AGO
