GREEN BAY (590 alt., 37,415 pop.), the oldest settlement in the State, lies at the southern extremity of Green Bay, spread out along the east and west banks of the Fox River. Entered from either the south or the north, the city seems intensely industrial. A capacious harbor, open from April until December, allows the largest lake steamers to dock and empty their cargoes of coal, lumber, and steel. Long miles of railroad tracks and warehouses line the riverbanks; heavy smoke from paper mills rises above them; and during the day the bridges connecting the east and west sections of the city are often raised high in the air in order to allow the bulky freighters to ply the river. The bayshore is sandy and vacant. Wild rice grows in the stagnant water
