While doing a little fall work in his garden recently Julius “Dutch” Seiberlich, west Sixth Street, unearthed a bit a buried treasure. The article discovered was a badge in the form of a star, the word “Alderman” printed across the center of the badge and around it the words “City of Kaukauna”. John Coppes, Dodge street, was asked if he remembered when the Kaukauna alderman wore badges. He replied “Sure I do. I wore one myself.” Being elected alderman in the year 1897, it was given to the alderman giving them the authority to make arrests or at least break up fights.”
Petitions for police salary increases of $15 and firemen’s salary increases of $25 monthly, were received by Kaukauna City Council.

There has been a lot of argument back and forth this season on whether the Green Bay Packer football team should stay in Green Bay or be moved to Milwaukee. Of course, most fans in this area want the team to remain in Green Bay. Bill Corum, New York columnist, wrote last week: “Great as Green Bay is as a team, loyal as the fans of the little town are, it can’t go on indefinitely being a big-league city it isn’t. Big city teams who draw a big gate at home do not like to play in Green Bay. New York has not played there for some years now and others are likely to take the same attitude.”
