House moved off new post office site
The dwelling house has been moved from the lot in Livingston where the new post office will be built. The house was moved to the lot on the south side of the post office and will face South Church Street opposite the First Christian Church.

Work on the construction of the new post office building which has been estimated to cost approximately $75,000 is expected to be started in the next few days.

The new post office will be located on the south side of the public square on the lot where Mr. and Mrs. Roy Smith have been living. The lot was purchased from the heirs of the late Mrs. M.D. Miller.

Bruno Hauptmann's body cremated in NY
With the "utmost privacy", funeral services were held in New York for Bruno Hauptmann, who was executed in Trenton, NJ, for the kidnapping and murder of Col. Charles A. Lindbergh's son. The body was then cremated and it was announced that the ashes would be taken to Germany.

Hauptmann went to the chair steadily, insisting that he was innocent of the crime.

Hitler's peace program is formally submitted
Adolf Hitler's proposal for peace in Europe, together with his flat rejection to the plan of the either four Locarno powers for settlement of the Rhineland situation, were handed to British Foreign Minister Eden by Joachim, Yon Ribbentrop, and passed on by Eden to the French and Belgian ambassadors in London. The British cabinet thought the German scheme worthy of consideration, but the French government looked upon it as a "cunning plan" to split the Locarno powers and make Hitler the virtual dictator of Europe.
