Divorce- Suit Transferred
Divorce proceedings instigated
by Alta E. Wood against Thomas
Wood have been transferred
from Multnomah county and will
be heard in the Marion county
court. The change of venue was
granted upon motion of the hus
band, who is a resident of this
county. The couple were married
here in 1919. Mrs. Wood charges
cruelty, continual nagging and era
barrassment. She requests the"
restoration of her maiden name,
Alta E. Johnson. This-is denied
in an affidavit issued by the hus
band, who. charges that she left
him in June, 1923, and put in too
much time studying music and
dancing at night. She was seldom
home, he says, and for some time
was employed in the office of the
state insurance commissioner here
while he Was employed by the
Standard Oil company in Portland.
He also charges that she was out
with other men. A rebuttal issued
by the wife denies these allegations.

Coast Has Building Boom
That building is prevalent along
the entire Paciric coast from Van
couver B.C., to Los Angeles, was
the statement made by Albert Cop
ley, who speke at the Marion-
Polk County Realty association
luncheon 'ThuTSday noon on "Ob
servations 'Regarding Conditions
in California." The predicted
slump in California building acti
vities has not materialized, he
said, and building is general and
has been for-a, great many years'.
Inasmuch as California is Oregon's
nearest neighbor and both have
much in Common, Mr. Copley said
that a boost for one is a boost for
the other. At present there is
more talk in California about Ore
gon's rood roads than ffrer before
and that the'great amount of pave
ment is a fine advertisement. He
stressed the importance of the
variety of fruits grown, though
the walnuts cannot compare with
those grown in Oregon.
