them have to come over a hundred

lis here with his wife. Like moat
lawyers, he has an aversion to cold
water. Tho fondness of tho profes
sion for getting people Into hot
water makes surf bathing at New
port unpopular with members of the
bar. So Oruber bathes in tho sun
shine and revls in tho oceans of
ozono that are blown across the
lllimltablo Pacific.
Miss Forbes, a Polk county teach

a niece of Secretary Forbes of the
Salem Y. M. C. A was among the

M. Bredemolor and wife, formorly

salt water. It 1b remarkablo at tho

Sho does not oven havo to bo hand

Dredemelor is vory devoted to his
