Maurice McMahon, county at- orney, and Dorothy Mangan were married at St. Cecelia's church.

H. Falkenhainer for the recent Red Cross county drive has been compiled, and it shows that the county exceeded its quota by almost "$3,000, which is considered a credit to the people, the chairman, and all committees. Work of this kind, which entails much time and effort, is rarely appreciated by folks who think the greatest hardship is giving money. Chairman M. H. Falkenhainer deserves much credit for the fine way he conducted this successful drive. The Red Cross will continue in its fine war work unabated. To Manager Rice and the manager of the Fenton theater due credit must be given also for aiding this fine work of the Red Cross. Red Cross is Insurance. ', There will be other drives for more funds for the Red Cross, and the county will always meet, and it is hoped, exceed, its quota. We have been blessed with wonderful crops and fine prospects for prosperity and the least we can do is to give liberally for brave members of the armed forces who risk their lives that America may remain free. Money donated to the Red Cross is our best insurance for future freedom, and it also insures our soldiers, sailors, and marines the comforts they might otherwise not enjoy. Give freely to the Red Cross whenever you are asked. Reports in Detail.

John Trumbull, our postmaster, looks up from his newspaper yesterday and says: "I see they caught another one o' them so- called 'gang-lords' of the Prohibition era. "Wonder how long it's going to take us to wipe out the evil Prohibition left behind . . . not to mention the billions of dollars it cost the people?" Well, John's right o' course. Hard to believe America could ever pass a law like Prohibition. But from where I sit it's a big consolation — now that Prohibition is over—to see how moderation and tolerance have grown up in its place. Nowadays, if a man enjoys a friendly glass of beer or two after a day's work, he not only can do it in clean, respectable surroundings-but he knows that no bootlegger or gangster is making a red cent on it.
