Herald Buys Lyle Tribune

William Nordland, publisher of the Lyle Tribune for more than 48 years, quit business today.

He has wanted to retire for some time, he said, and the recent illness of his wife prompted him to act now.

Mr. Nordland sold the real estate. files, office equipment, legal rights and subscription list of the Tribune to the Herald Publishing Co., Austin.

Up until this week, the Tribune had been published weekly for 58 years. Mr. Nordland purchased the paper Dec. 1, 1902, from Chas. Gould and Co., one of four previous owners.

Mr. Nordland came to Lyle from Emmons. Born in Freeborn county, he lived in Austin 16 years, attending school here. After leaving school, he worked for eight years on the Austin Daily Register. Mr. Nordland said he and his wife will continue to live at Lyle.
