Members of the Y's Men's Club flooded the YMCA ice rink last night, but the ground was not sufficiently frozen to retain the water. As soon as possible, the outdoor ice skating rink on Seventh Street will be frozen and opened to the public for use.

Employees of the B. & O. who are acting as watchmen on the railroad bridge while it is under construction, will be sworn in as police, so they can take care of the crowds that throng the bridge when it is opened for evening traffic. If the traveling public does not obey the watchmen, the bridge will be completely closed to travel until construction is finished.
