George W. Troxell
When the citizens of the Borough of Lykens elected Mr. Troxell to serve the position of chief executive of the Borough, they certainly made an elegant selection. Mr. Troxel came to Lykens about thirty-five years ago having been born in Loyalton, just four miles west of the borough. For the past twenty-five years he has successfully conducted a modern and up-to-date shoe repairing establishment. He is a business man of indisputable calibre, and Lykens will be managed in a business manner of the right style. The Chief Burgess strongly protests against auto-speeding and has declared himself to rid the down of this very dangerous menace. He is fair and must and exercises very keen judgment. It is well to assume that Lykens will certainly progress under the regime of a business-man-mayor.
