Plattsburgh may have run into another snag in its search for a new dump site. Common Council approved designation of a site on Route 374, nine miles west of the city and a little west of Cadyville.

The First Squadron, Third Cavalry, 170 men and 150 horses, from Fort Ethan Allen, Vt., reached Plattsburgh Barracks and went into camp on the rifle range. The squadron, led by Lt. Col. T.H. Rees, Jr. is engaged in making a 300 mile practice march around Lake Champlain and Lake George.

Struck by an automobile while bicycling on the Plattsburgh-Peru Road a short distance from the city limits, Raymond Laundry, 13, of Route 3, died while being rushed to the Champlain Valley Hospital. The youth received a compound fracture to the skull, multiple fractures of the left arm and numerous lacerations. The driver of the car that struck the boy was Fred Trombly, about 60, of Salmon River, according to police reports.

One person was instantly killed and 11 others injured, nearly all of them seriously, during three Sunday afternoon automobile accidents in the Plattsburgh area. Killed when the car he was driving crashed head-on into another was Loyal Boushior, 17, of Altona.
