Marriage licenses may only be issued

couple stopped up to the desk and
made the all important announcement
that a license was wanted. After learn
ing that tho birdo lives in Portland,
all she could do was to advise then to
return to Multnomah county to se
cure the lieense. They did. ;

The Home Service section of the Bed,
Cross has carevl for several cases the
past week that probably would have
not been properly handled had it not
been for the efforts of the women in
charge of this all important work.
Within tho past few days, a girl who
was driven from her home was placed
in congenial surroundings. The wife of
a man now in the service wa3 stranded
in Tacoma without funds. Her case
was taken up by the Home Service
section of Tacoma, brought to the at
tention of the local home service and
arrangements were mado by which she
is now with her paroivts near the city.
Work was obtained for the wives of
two soldiers in the service and in an
other ease, the home service section
made arrangements for the care of a
child while the mother worked. The hus
band is in the service. It was jusa a
few days ago that the wifo of an en
listed man was returned to her folks
in Indiana, And thus the work goes
on from day to day.
Victor Benson Goes
. Into Limited Service
Victor Benson, a man found at Sil-
verton with no final classification card
was today sent by Sheriff W. I. Need
hnm to Vancouver for limited service.
Benson figured out that as long as
he had his blue registration eard, that
he was all right as he was moving
around con-siderably. He had failed to
respond to tho order to report for a
physical examination, nor did he sign
and send in his questionaire. He felt
that as he wandered about the regis
tration card would save him. He did
not know that the old registration card
is of no avail now-a-days, but that
every man must have his final class
ification card, excepting those who reg
istered Sept. 12 of this year.
