The couple came here Tuesday morning and appeared at the office of Donald W. Barnett, clerk of the district court, and explained that they had arrived in New Hampton Tuesday morning by train from Chicago. The . couple told Barnett they wanted fo be married at the famed Little Brown church but learned that Nashua had no direct rail or bus connection with New Hampton. However, the clerk informed the couple that every day a county officer traveld to Nashua and promised to arrange the trip, £0 Mrs. Hazel V. Dennis, welfare director, was contacted and as she was going, to Nashua the necessary arrangements w e r e made. After being married by the Rev. F. L. Hanscom, pastor of the church, the couple returned here Tuesday evening with Mrs. Dennis and decided to remain here Tuesday night rather than returning to Chicago on the night train. The bridegroom is 55 and was a widower, while his bride previously had not been married.

It'* natural for popular names to acquire friendly abbreviations. That's why you hear Coca-Cola called Coke. Coca-Cola and Coke mean (he same thing...the real thing "coming from a single source, and well known «o the community". ...You can spot it every time .those in the Navy's W. A.V. E. S. do a double service. In serving on their own, they also release a trained man for war duty. In its own way, you've found that ice-cold Coca-Cola does a double service, too. It quenches thirst, yes. But it does more. It brings an after-sense of complete refreshment. A drink has to be good to be the best-liked soft drink on earth. Coca-Cola started out being good and keeps on being good. Choicest - ingredients and the finished art of 57 years of "know-how" set Coca-Cola apart in quality. Only The Coca-Cola Company makes Coca-Cola. The best is always the better buy! . In order that those in the Service of Uncle Sam can continue to enjoy Coca-Cola, every effort is made by bonier* to supply them with Coca-Cola sufficient for their needs.

TM°* E Books Give Strength in Difficulties Pointing out that this is not an easy year for anyone and that we will all bo called upon to fine! greater abilities and greater resources of strength than we have ever-been called upon to find before, John T. Frederick, professor of modern letters in the Medill school of journalism of Northwestern university and "Of Men and Books" speaker on the Columbia broadcasting system, told Woman's club members Tuesday afternoon in a lecture in Radio chapel. "It is easy to say we haven't time to read, but we have a duty to ourselves--that we shall be able to meet these demands and give what the times require we shall give. We should find time to read in those sources which Who* We Deserve! Professor Frederick t o l d Woman's club members in his talk that he had visited the Mason City public library and that he believed that relative to its purpose, it is the finest, most beautiful and most useful building in the world. "I believe that communities, like people, get about what thev deserve in life," he said in making this commentary. have proved fruitful in the past as sources of strength. We know what they are. They are not the same for any of us--some will be old books--some will be humble We will be sharing the richest promise American literature has manifested in its history--the promise expressed in the new and affirmative literature of men and God." * ¥ if ' In beginning his lecture Professor Frederick said that literature is a living organic thing, although most people think of literature as something remote from them and their lives, written by certain people set apart from the human race. He pointed out that we do not hold the same opinion of education or business, considering them something we all have a share in. "Literature depends for life on toe participation of all of us," he said. "It is not something standing on shelves, created by a few chosen people. The literary process depends on the readers This is a pretty exciting time in which to have that privilege and responsibility." * W * Commenting on the two general directions which American literature has been assuming, Professor Frederick said that the first general movement which has been developing in the past five years or more consists in the discovery, 011 the part of Americans writing and reading, a range of unrealized possibilities for rich literary experience in America itself, and not in the narrow nationalistic sense. "We are renewing our appreciation of our literature as Americans. The movement began with descriptive and historical books." Professor Frederick mentioned the books of this type which resulted from the WPA writers' project, as well as the "Rivers of America," the "American Folkways." the "Seaports of America" and the "Mountains of America" series. * * * "All these are evidence of an increased zeal to know their own country. Lately the descriptive and historic books have been supplemented by books of analysis in which writers' give us a clearer and stronger conception of democracy. One of the best of. these is 'The Ground We Stand On' by John Dos Passes." Professor Fred- crick also mentioned in (his class tile "Living in America"' series, "No Life for a Lady." "Safe Deliverance" and "A Sub-Treasury of American Humor." In commenting on the latter, he said that he wished more of the rough and ready folk humor had Spiritual Values Says Critic ~*~ ·--- _--i--- w Jumper Frock 'T'HE dependable jumper frock J- is something that needs no introduction, so practical and profitable does it prove in almost any wardrobe.

As typical of foU- numor, Professor Frederick told the story of "King Solomon and the Weather Prophet" * * * "The second major direction of literature is apparent in fiction and non fiction alike. The common denominator of the* best books of the past year is a new and positive element of faith in God and common man--a religious faith. The three novels which most Americans have been reading are The Moon Is Down' bv John Steinbeck. 'The Song of Bemadette' by Franz Werfel and Look to the Mountain' by LeGrand Cannon, Jr. They have in common, faith in spiritual values --that man Is more than the sum of material possessions. "In the non fiction field are One Man's Meat' by E. B. White Cross Creek' by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and "They Were Expendable' by W. L. White. These are positive books. Books that say 'yes.' Their affirmations are of faith in the spiritual resources of mankind." * * * Mrs. Harvey J. Bryant, president of the club, presided, and introduced Miss Nancy Cummings, representative of the Red Cross nursing service, who talked on the need for army nurses and urged the backing of women in this cause. The -club voted (o change its by-laws, providing a one year term instead of a two year term for the president of the club, with the privilege of succeeding herself going to the incumbent in that office. Mrs. B. Raymond Weston led the members in the salute to the flag and the singing of the national anthem, accompanied by Miss Lucille Bergman, who also played an organ prelude.
