Plans for the establishment here
of a radio -broadcasting station by
the Salem Klwanis club were given
hearing at1 the noon luncheon' of
the organization yesterday; and al
though the question was tabled
indefinitely efforts will continue
'to secure the placing of a station
here, ' It was said. J. H. Hallock
of the Portland firm of Hallock &
Wataon was the speaker and pre
sented -the data necessary for an
understanding of the difficulties

Consideration of the question
after Hollock's talk resulted in
the passage of a motion to post

tion tabled a proposal o submit
the matter to the other' two service
clubs, of the city with the view of
securing their cooperation in, the

been rejected ; by..' the Kiwanis
board of directors whose decision,
announced, by President ,C. B. Mc
Cullough, was that such a station
, would Lfee a splendid basset to the
city but was not a project suitable
"for a service club. - i
. - The ' fpitial cost of a 50-watt

second time this year,' .. '-? .
A divorce suit was, Htarted
against Wareham, last April, but
on hie statement that "he would
never touch another drop of liq
uor," family ties were not broken.
Developments since then have been
many and varied according to the
complaint filed yesterday.
The complaint delves into Ware-
ham's past history and stated that
about the middle of July, 1921,
the. defendant began, to get glor
iously drunk; and intoxicated and
ever since that time, he has been
drank and intoxicated more than
half s the time, frequently remain
ing drunk for months at a time,
and is now a confirmed habitual
gross drunkard. , fi . ..
"In the summer: and fair of
1922 the "complaint, reads,, "the
defendant waa drunk and intoxi
cated almost continually for al
most five months, and in the fall
of that year he ; was committed to
the Oregon State hospital for alco
holic psychosis where he remained
for six. weeksi After his release
he remained sober tor one month
and began to get drunk again and
was drunk most of the year 1923,
In the fall of 1923 he was again
committed to the hospital, and was
released in two weeks, and has
been drunk most : of the time

suit for divorce, but on lier hus-
band's promise that he- would
never.; drink again, the proceed-
ings were dropped. Ho remained
sober for 10 days, the complaint
Gays, and at the end of that time
became "crazy drunk." A. short
time later he again "showed up in
a state of bestia intoxication and
cursed and swore and raved like
a maniac. He has been drunk
most of the time since," the dl-
vorce complaint says. .
Last Sunday Wareham waa ar-

day he was.; released, ;. M q n d a y
nieht he arain faced the desk ser-
geant on a charge of driving while

other ear and partly wrecked it.
Commenting on his habits,' the
complaint declares that "he uses
every profane and vulgar word In
the category ot the American pro
fanity and vulgarity, and in every
possible combination. . Mrs. Ware-
