Clyde Miller, caretaker at the city park, tested the ice at various points on Center Lake and found it to be about three inches thick. The large shade was stolen from the light on the end of the pier, and with this gone, skaters may find it more difficult to change skates because of the darkness. Miller asked the park board for permission to erect a string of electric lights over the ice for night skating. The wires would be stretched between pipes anchored in the ice and braced with concrete blocks.
