The Summit Herald of June 23, 1941 reported that Mayor Guido Forster expected to run for a second term, despite being recalled to active duty as a Naval Reserve officer. There was some concern in the city as to whether an active-duty officer could legally run for public office, and if he could reasonably expect to return to Summit by January 1, 1942. The 6th-graders at Brayton School closed out the school year with a special performance of their own version of “Aida”. The Summit Red Sox beat Irvington 3-1, taking first place in the Lackawanna League. The Lyric Theater showed “Ziegfeld Girl” starring Judy Garland, Lana Turner, and Hedy Lamarr.
