Our information, however, is that in a majority of cases clerical errors and technical failures to clear tax records are responsible for inclusion of the lands among those lo which the state claims title. To he on the safe side property owners would be wise to consult the list of defendant lands, on file in the circuit court clerk's office. If they find any of their lands listed they • can then file the proper answer or intervention. If they wait until the decree is actually granted they are likely lo encounter serious difficulty in getting their titles straightened out. TirURSDAY, APRIL 15, 1937 Tip For "Golf Widoivs[' The wife of a noted golfer dramatizes the dismal lot of a "golf widow" by suing for; a divorce. Her advice to prospective brides of fairway addicts is "Don't.? With all respect to the unhappy woman, however, it is wondered if she took every step possible to make her married life a success. If she simply sat home : and waited for her mate's seasonal return,• perhaps she got what she deserved. But a "golf widow" generally can'avoid her bereavement by use of a little guile. For instance, she could insisl upon plying golf ;\vith her husband. Then, every time lie 1 'prepiirod to drive, she could hum a little tune. She could take care that each of her drives would not carry over 10 feet, making it necessary for him to wait as she meandered slowly over the fairway. And she could chatter away about the beauty of Nature,' or the drabness of golf togs worn by other women nearby. ; In. this; way, it would be only a mattei of time until her mate exploded, broke; his 'clubs, and llieiice became a; home-body In Simple Words of Pure Gold Sennlor Ashiirst of Arizona seems lo be one up on Ralph'-" Waldo Emerson.
