WOMEN'S CLUBS
SHOW INTEREST
IN AMENDMENTS
Proposed Changes in Charter
Will Be Explained and Dis
cussed This 'Week
MARY ASHE MILLER
Amendments are being explained
before most of the women's clubs- in
town this week, and have been for the
last month, but the differences of
opinion seem about as marked aa they
were in the first instance.
The assurance is given that no
women's club.ls in any sense partisan.
Any one may come and say anything he
likes about anything political before
the clubwomen, and the result Is a fine
amount of divided thought. Interest
runs high in some quarters, but other
women are comforting themselves with
the remembrance that S. S. McClure
said in his address before the Civic
Center that some of the proposed
amendments were beyond him. Nearly
every one has a pet amendment to vote
on, arid the others will be overlooked
or conscientiously balloted upon ac
cording to the temperament of the
voter.

county cabbage patch and scorching
their finger tips with matches Intended
to illumine the pages of scripture from
which the minister was reading, George

Bertha M. Gough of this city, were the
principals in a novel marriage cere
mony shortly after midnight last night-
A Sudden preniiptial determination
to enjoy a joke at the expense of their
friends, who were waiting at the
church in the town of Santa Ana, re
sulted In their own discomforture and
the cabbage patch wedding was the
Only solution to a vexatious problem.
The couple conceived the idea that
they could elope to Los Angeles with
an Orange county license and be mar
ried. In Los Angeles they solicited
the services of a church dignitary and
he*mildly Informed them that the cere
mony would be illegal unless performed
In Orange county, but volunteered to
accompany them to the adjacent county.
An automobile was engaged im«.
mediately and all road records Into
Orange county were broken by the
bridal party.
