'It is quite a coincidence to chan;;<' only one letter of one's name when married, but 1 know of two persons who didn't change Iheir names even one letter. The late Way Anderson who married Oscar Anderson is one, and Harriet Brown, daughter of Mrs Kachael I3i'own is another. Harriet married W. L. Brown. The 'photographer \vlio took the wed;ding picture was also Brown, the '•later Will Brown, and 'tis said the wedding was done up brown. I was told this by an aunt of Harriet. 1 don't, recall whether she said the minister was Brown too. Kachael has been counselor at the Chi Omega sorority house for many years. * « * While I was al Ortons for dinner Christmas day, Knu'e showed colored slides of the African location where they will be when all the necessary training has been given them for work in the missions fields of French Equatorial Africa. For some time "Kay" was in Chicago taking a course in pathology at St. Luke hospital. He Ls now taking post-graduate work in Omaha. The next step will be 3 year in France where they will study the language. . After viewing the slides which were, interesting but a bit gruesome when some of tin.' maladies of the -natives were shown, I take my hat off to those who have the courage to enter the field. Climate would be another big thing one has to cope with, comtaminat- ed water too, and long before the slides were finished, I knew Africa wasn't my "dish."
