Fewer Arrests Made.
Getting down to facts and official
court records, the information is
gleaned that during the month Miss
O'Bryan has been in charge of the
non-support department there have
been less arrests on this charge than
ever before since the non-support bill
became a law in Oregon.
Day after day deserted rives appear
at Miss O'Bryan's desk and ask that
their husbands be arrested. Miss
O'Bryan listens patiently to the stories
