NORWOOD FIELD OPENED TOMORROW
NORWOOD, Sept 28—The new Norwood High School athletic field, which has been under construction for more than a year, will be formally dedicated tomorrow afternoon at 2:30. The parade, in which the Norwood Brass Band, Co G, Massachusetts National Guard; American Legion and the student bodies of the senior and the junior High Schools will march, will start from the Town sq at 1:30. Following the dedication exercises, the local High School eleven will play the Worcester High School of Commerce team.
Norwood High School has now one of the best schoolboy fields in the State. Besides the gridiron, there is also a regular baseball diamond, six tennis courts, track and hockey rink. The extensive work cost the town approximately 75,000.
One thousand bleacher seats have been erected for the opening game, and it is intended that by tomorrow 300 temporary seats will be ready to facilitate the huge crowds expected to be present.
Between the halves of the game there will be a drill by Co G. All town officials will be present as guests of honor, as well as coaches and physical directors from all over the State, who are eager to view the new field.
