Already the health committee of the
city council has come out in the open
and expressed the desire to support
a bill which would forbid marriage
unless the, couple can show health
certificates from reputable physi

effect in Wisconsin. His bill will pro
hibit the county clerk from issuing
a marriage license until the health
certificate is shown.

bitterly fought. In Wisconsin the
men who managed to have the eu

check the spread of venereal diseases.
