From the pages of the Crescent City American, January 1928.
Jim Musick was chairman of the day at Kiwanis Wednesday noon, Jan. 28, when the club met for its weekly luncheon, and had City Clerk G. Fletcher Dodd as his guest who gave the main talk of the day.
Mr. Dodd has been searching the early records of Crescent City through the minutes of the council proceedings away back in 1855, when the town was first established. Mr. Dodd told of ordinances that had been passed which to us, whom we call modern, are truly laughable.
One of the ordinances passed was to the effect that no female person was to be found in any wine cellar or saloon between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., drunk, under penalty of $100 fine and 10 days in jail.
Another was that no dead horses were to be dumped in the city north of G street. Still another was that no citizen should permit his hogs to run loose on Second Street.
Many other interesting facts were told by Mr. Dodd and his entire talk was greatly enjoyed by all the members.

Louis DeMartin was in Crescent City on Monday looking over the highway business. Louis is a little anxious to see how much of his ranch will be available for ranching purposes after the highway people get all they want. Louis is willing to meet ’em halfway and then some, but he wants what is left to be so that he can use it.
