Mrs. Michael claimed Tier nephew husband had raised'a loan of $250 on some property she owned, with which he furnished a barber shop for him self and now had turned from her for a younger girl Judge Sabath ruled that the mar riage was not a valid one and dis missed the defendant Mrs. Nicholas Cannon, 1828 Ham mond St., found her way into court early in her matrimonial life. She is just 17 and has been married 7 months. She charged that her hus band was cross with her and would not let her live with her mother, and that when she wanted to go to a nickel show she either had to steal the money out of the food money or' out of his pocket.

The proposed Ft Sheridan civilian military training camp is in a sad plight. Looks like it is going to prove 'a fizzle and if it does the loop sheets, especially the Trib, will have to eat a large mess of humble pie. Request of a local army official upon Washington for camp parapher nalia brought the reply that more in terest will have to be shown or no school will be started. When the camp was planned the loop sheets all predicted 500 enlist ments in a few days' time. But the total to date is but 215. "Send substitutes to camp If you can't go," says Trib today in urging business men fo save the camp. The Trib suggests that business men who lack sufficient patriotism to do a month's work in learning how to fight for Old Glory pay $40 to send a recruit in their place. "If you can't afford the $40, why not take a $5 or $20 share In one rookie," says the Trib. , If this plan goes through, look out for some resignations. It was an nounced when the camp was plan ned that it was to be "exclusive," and the blue stocking boys are not going to mix with any common university grads who have to have their way paid. It would be getting away from one purpose of the camp, which is to train the scions of big business in militarism so as "to give them a firm er advantage over the common herd.
