5. W. P. Guard, Fort Oglethorpe,
Ga., to Miss Vera A. Weisener, a
member of a prominent family of
Chattanooga. Tenn., which was cele
brated on Wednesday last at Chatta
nooga. No doubt the news of his
marriage will be a big surprise to
his many friends here.
Private Gendusa joined the army
in September, 1917, and was sent to
Camp Pike, he was later transferred
to Camp ,Beauregard. and then to
Fort Oglethorpe, where he is now
stationed and is very proud of the
fact that he is in the service of
Uncle Sam.
Before joining the army, Private
Gendusa conducted a barber shop at
Alix and Belleville Sts., .where he
enjoyed a cvery lucrative business.
He has no idea when he will be dis
charged from the service, but his
friends here can be assured that
when he is, they will find him doing
business at the same old stand in
the same old way.
His many friends here congratu
late him and wish for him and his
bride a happy and prosperous life.

the work should be more efficiently
performed than it has been up to
this time, and in our operations we
are following distinctly the sugges

I am very glad to note that you
so promptly took the matter up with
us, and we will be glad at any time
to have any comments from you re
