MARQUETTE — The baby clinic conducted in the health department office in the city hall seemed to be based on a question of high quality, even if not so many in quantity. Nine babies were present and, of these, four scored 100 percent. The four “peaches” were Alice Johnson from Munising; Richard Stebers, South Third Street; Robert Huff, Division Street; and Dorothy Shaw, Baraga Avenue. Francis Rose, Presque Isle, was marked 99.5 percent.
