"It is better to forget everything than to put some things down in a diary." That was the remark today by Judge tieorge 11. Whitcomb of the second di vision of the district court, when he grunted Mrs. Pearl Glenn a divorce from her husband. David Glenn, and ordered the husband" to pay $12 a week for the support of the children. "You just can't get away- from the wi l ing that appears in a diary," said Jude Whitcomb when he ruled urii'nst Glenn who wanted the divorce and the custody of the children. In a hotly contested divorce trial during the first of the week, Glenn accused his wife of intimacy with sol diers and with other indiscretions. But there was nothing in writing against her in the testimony offered. On the o.her hand, Mrs. Glenn In some way obtained a diary which she claimed her husband wrote in which it was alleged h told of-intimacy with other women and Jotted down obscene stories and other things. "Hence the ruling in favor of the wife this morn ing by Judge Whitcomb. JKWS POSTPOXF, CELEBRATIOV. Failure to Get lcslred Speakers for Monday Causes Delay. The big Jewish celebration to have been held in Topeka Monday in honor of the return of Palestine to the Jews has been postponed for several weeks, according to.Ike Gilberg. Gllberg said the inability to obtain, several speakers scheduled to appear here has caused the delay. The work of arranging removal of Hebrews from the famine stricken Kuronean countries and takins them to Palestine, where they may be cared for is taking the time of the Jewish leaders. Gilberg says. The initial steps of this work sqon will be com pleted and the system worked out in such a way that leaders will have time left for other endeavors. A similar celebration to have been held in Gal vf'ston has been postponed for the same reasons, Gilberg says. No date has been set for the post poned celebration. It will not be an nounced until it is definitely known when the desired speakers can be se- cured. S. A. BANI COMING TO CITY. Crack Musical Organization Will Give Throe Concerts May 23.

Had It Bobbed, Now They Want Their Hair Back London. May 15. The fashion of cutting women's hair short is waning, and scores of short-haired women are searching West end hairdressing shops for locks with which to replace those of which they were shorn a few months aero when the ''bobbing" craze was at Its height. This has created an abnormal demand for hair of all colors. Possessors of rich auburn or pure white locks of suitable length can obtain $12 or $15 by submitting to the "bobbing' operation. There is some irony in the fact that many London women who paid five or six shill ngs a few months ago to have their hair -bobbed" and left the tresses with the hair dresser, not know ing they might have received money for them, are now- spending anxious nours in otner shops in an often futile "matching up" endeavor. i FIGHT LAXDLORDS THRU MOVIES I Renters in Chicago Suburb Flash' Their Arguments on the Screen. i Chicago, May 15.
