New at Frontier Town this year was a prairie dog colony, a wooded picnic area and U-Driv-Em goat carts.


In the column, “Then I Wrote,” the Editor wrote, “One of the liveliest and happiest places in Ocean City is strangely enough the waiting room of Doc Townsend’s office.

In his City Hall report, Councilman C.H. Shuey wrote, “I have talked with dozens of business people from apartment house owners to restaurant operators. Without exception they are doing better this year than ever before — even in the fact of all the new construction — and hence increased competition — this year. I noticed many Quebec cars, Ohio cars, New Jersey cars, even Montana, Texas, and Wisconsin license plates are not uncommon.”
