Sunday Forty years ago March 2(, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Millikan were united . in marriage at tho home of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Hockett in Liberty township. At that time a sumptious wed- iweds at the Hockett home. In cele-, ..... oiiuiKan entertained at an annivers ary dinner last Sunday at their home on South Walnut street and an interesting circumstance in connection with the affair of Sunday was that dinner was served on the same table which held the wedeling supper forty years ago, and the splendid dinner g,iven by Mr. and Mrs. Millikan was in no respects second to the one given so many years before. There was fried chicken and gravey, mashed potatoes, angel food and devilsfood cakes, salads, and in fact everything that goes to make up a dinner of this kind. Owing to the inclemency of the weather, a number of the guests were unable to attend, among them Mrs. Sude Howell, the only person living who was a guest t the wedding. The party was a family affair, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Lambour being the only guests present who were not relatives. Two sons of Mr. and Mrs. Millikan, living in Oklahoma were unable to come. Mr. and Mrs. Millikan, who commenced their married life in Lib erty township, have always lived in , , . utnem -ranr, county wun ; ception of a few years spent in Kan sas, and who for the past twenty years have been residents of Fair-mount, were recipients of congratulations from many friends.

Spence, alleging alienation of affections and demanding damages in the sum of $5,000. Both parties to the suit reside in Jonoshoro. The plaintiff and her husband are the parents of three children, two girls aped 7 and 9 and one son aged 4. They were married in May, 1912, and according to the complaint, lived together happily until in July 1921, when the influocne of the defendant, according to the allegations in the complaint ,became apparent. "About the month of July 1921," the complaint reads, "the defendant without the knowledge of the plaintiff, began to associate with the plaintiff's husband, and by showing him numerous marks of kindness and affections and by various artifices and devices won the affections of said husband." Mrs. Kiser alleges the defendant lured, invited and solicited Mr. Kiser to visit her in the defendant's home both in the daytime and at night and charges that they have had many clandestine meetings at divers time and places. She claims the fact became generally known in the neighborhood and brought the plaintiff into great shame and dishonor. Mrs. Kiser claims further that her husband informed her some time, during the present month that he no longer had any atTection for her and that he had more regard and affection for the defendant. She says Mr. Kiser told her he would live with her no longer than he was compelled to do so and that if she would not; divorce him, he would live with the plaintiff without being divorced. Thereupon, the plaintiff alleges, he went to the home of the defendant and has since spent all of his leisure time in the home of and in the company of the defendant. She says she has been humiliated and has had great shame and dishonor brought upon her, and she asks for damages in the sum of $5,000. Health Campaign Is On This Week County Welfare Association Conduct ing a Three Days Course of Instruction for the Public Otto Hamilton, superintendent of public schools is in receipt of a letter from Mrs. D. V. Welboume, executive secretary of the Marion Federated Welfare Association, has called at tention to the fact that an effort is being made this week to organize Grant county for the University Extension Health Campaign. The Wel fare Association was not advised until a few days ago that they would be called upon to undertake this work, this being made necessary because of the fact that the previously appointed county chairman for this work has been forced to relinquish her duties on account of illness. This campaign will be conducted in the Marion city library, beginning today and continue over Friday and Saturday. On Friday afternoon the nurses will give a demonstration of the work of the public health nurses in the care of babies, in the examination of school children and in other nurse proceedure which may interest the people of the community. Tiday evening there will be a free picture entertainment in the public library hall. Saturday will be given over to individual conferences, at which time it is hoped to interest young girls in the nursng profession, to interest mothers n the care of children, also in having their daughters trained for nurses work. Mrs. Grace Pitts and Miss Mable Loveless, graduate registered nurses. are being sent to Grant county by Indiana University for this three days intensive course of instruction and it is hoped that as many people in the county as possible will attend these sessions, especially those on Friday and Saturday. Talk on Education in Indiana. The regular meeting and luncheon of the Kiwanis club was held Tuesday night in the high school building, the three course dinner being- served by the young ladies of the domestic science classes, under the direction of Miss Wright. The dinner was a most satisfying one, excellent in every detail, consisting of bouillon followed by boiled ham, potatoes, lima beans and salad, and dessert and coffee. After the president, Dr. L. D. Holliday, had disposed of a few preliminaries, Ryn-hart Busing was introduced as chairman of the evening and he put the program through with a snap and vigor that kept all guessing) as to just what might come next. A cornet solo by Loren Cain received a hearty encore and then each Kivvanian was provided with a printed blank which he was instructed to not look at until Prof. Krouskup gave the word. When this was given each one was required to fill in the incompleted sentences within the five minutes time l;mit. Some of them did and some of them didn't. Just the significance of this was brought out later in the evening. Edgar Morphet then took charge of affairs, and under his direction two of the "g(eatest boxers in tho country" (Palmer Ice and Ted Taikcr) put on a "12 round bout," only it didn't last twelve rounds, Ice drew first blood when he broke one of the huge inflated rubber ballons Parker wore for boxing gloves, but Parker came back soon after and put Ice's out of business. It was then give and take for the next two rounds, until Tarker succeeded in getting in a upper cut that put Ice "down" for the count, and Parker was declared the winner, being awarded the prize of a box of "two" cigars. A monologue by Victor Love pleased the Kiwanians so that thye called for more, and were gratified by Mr. Love responding. The speaker of the evening, Otto T. Hamilton, was then introduced, and gave a most interesting and instructive talk on Indiana's educational system, in which he brought out the significance of the stunt earlier in the evening when the guests were given their "intelligence" test. Mr. Hamilton entered into detail as to how and why Indiana was rated as seventeenth in the educational standing, of the states of the union, and told what was now being done looking toward raising the standard, how the Rockefeller Foundation, co-operating with the commission authorized by the last legislature, was now completing a survey of the state, and that the preliminary on this work would be made sometime during the coming (Continued on Page Two) COUNTY MEETING OF DISCUSSION LEAGUE. The county meeting of the Discussion League, which is composed of re presentatives of various high schools in the county who have won first honors in debates on the immigration question, will be held Friday evening at the Jonesboro high school. Winners from Marion, Gas Cty and Jonesboro high schools will take part in the discussion as well as Fairmount high school and Fairmount academy. The high school will be represented by Miss Merle Carter, while the academy will send Everett J. Ritchie. The winner at the county meeting will take part in the congressional district meeting and the winner of the district meeting will be honored by going to the state meeting. KING'S HERALDS MEET WITH LEA LINVILLE. The King's Heralds of the M. E. church met Saturday afternoon with Miss Leah Linville on North Main street, fourteen members being present. Mary Weirauch gave the lesson and the Mystery Box questions were answered. During) the social hour the little guests enjoyed some games and home made condy was served.
