each guest drew her ribbon at the
other end of which was an
other heart with & single letter on il,

of the marriage. Pink and white were
carried out In the decorations of the
home. Following supper guessing con

Frieda Mennicke, booby. The affair
was cleverly arranged and carried out
and was very enjoyable. Miss Kara

The May meeting of the Trl-CIty So
cial Service club was held last night
at the Association house. Judge R. W.
Olmsted led the discussion on juvenile
court work, explaining the law and
outlining the work done by the courts
in dealing with delinquent and depen
dent children. He was followed by
some of those present who have had
experienced this work.
Reports were received from the
committee appointed at the last meet
ing to study the amusement proposi
tion, with special regard to the moving
picture shows. The reports were favor
able, in the main, to the shows them
selves, but considered that dangerous
possibilities were involved without pro
per supervision. The committee,
which consists of H. E. Dltzen, L. O.
Jahns and Miss Dina Ramser, was
instructed to carry its investigationi
further, and to report with recommen
dations at the next meeting of the
club. Officers were elected for the
coming year's work of the club as
President John H. Hauberg, Mo
line. Vice presidents Dr. J. W. Stewart,

Filter Plant Break.
C C. Wilson, superintendent of
waterworks, la explaining the trouble
which occurred yesterday morning at
the filtration plant, stated that It was
one of the contact fingers In the start
ing box which went bad. However,
that might have been remedied with
in a few minutes and would have been
had the old pump been out of commis
sion. As it was, the old pump was
started and the other parts, which
were transferred from the pumping
station to the new filter house, will be
repairedwlthln a few days. The break
would have affected only the supply
for the hill district If there had been
no pump to press Into service.
