H. A. WARBURTON, Attorney
Robert L. Pugh, Plaintiff
Ethel M. Pugh, Defendant
In the Circuit Court for Cecil County
In Equity No. 64881
The object of this suit is to procure
a decree declaring the marriage be
tween the parties null aud void.
The bill states: that the plaintiff
was married to the defendant, Ethel
M. Pugh, on October 1, 1938, in Elk
ton, Cecil Cou/nty, Maryland. That
ever since said marriage the plain
tiff and his wife have never cohabit
ed together as man and wife; and
that at the time of said marriage the
defendant never intended to live with
the plaintiff as a wife. That the de
fendant is a non-resident of the
State of Maryland, residing in the
State of New York; that the plaintiff
resides in the city of New York and
the State of New York. That by rea
son of the deceit and fraud practiced
upon the plaintiff by the defendant,
the plaintiff prays the Court to pass
a decree declaring said marriage
null and void. And the plaintiff prays
for such other and further relief as
his case may require.
It is thereupon, this 4th day of De
'cember, 1945, ordered by the Circuit
Court for Cecil County, in Equity,
that the plaintiff, by causing a copy
of this order to be inserted in some
newspaper, published in said Cecil
County, once in each of four succes
sive weeks before the 7th day of
January, 1946, give notice to the
said absent Defendant of the object
and substance of this bill, warning
her to appear in this Court in person
or by solicitor, on or before the 23rd
day of January, next, to show cause
if any she has, why a decree ought
not to be passed as prayed.

Office or Lodge
Decorated With
Little Effort
Have you been chosen to arrange
your office or lodge Christmas party
this year?
Don’t look at it as a chore, or
something that can be done in the
last few days before the actual holi
day. Make preparations for it ahead
of time—and you will see how much
more enjoyment everyone will get
out of it.
Christmas is the season for
parties when people spend much of
their time indoors either entertain- j
ing or being entertained. It is dur
ing this season that everyone is look- |
ing for new ideas for decorating j
homes, offices, recreation centers or |
gathering places.
Christmas greens are the favor

Other natural materials may be
added, such as pine cones, shells,
seed pods, ground pine or fruits.
If color is to be added, paint the
gourds or pine cones with poster
paints and fasten them on the pine
boughs with wire or string. Pine
cones painted in white and edged
with red or blue are especially
striking when hung against a dark
green background.
Three dimensional posters make
effective decorations, and are easily
made from cloth, stiff paper or other
material. This type of decoration is
particularly effective made up in the
traditional Christmas scenes such as
the bringing in the Yule log, Na
tivity scenes, or caroling.
Christmas cards are a good source
to go to for suggestions if you need
a design for a poster or bulletin
board as a central piece.

j Rules for Sending *
Cards to Personnel
Of Armed Forces
With so many of our friends still
in service, the code of military eti
quette is quite important in signing
and addressing Christmas cards
again this year.
When sending greeting cards to
commissioned officers, the rank
must be designated. However, when
sending a Christmas card to an en
listed man, the use of the rank is
optional. The best thing is to follow
the form the serviceman or woman
used as a return address.
In sending Christmas greetings
when the husband in service is not
at home on furlough, a simple note
| may be added to the greeting,
| saying, “John’s wishes are included
j with mine and we hope to see you
j when next he is home on furlough.’-’
I Be certain both names are on the
Whether the card is sent to a per
son in service or to someone in the
immediate circle of friends and
relatives, it is always wise to be
■■Vajgg ■■■.-.
Address mail properly to reach all
servicemen everywhere.
certain that the card chosen reflects
the degree of intimacy that exists.
Using first names, or even affec
tionate nicknames is permissible
on Christmas cards for close friends
and relatives. Some married couples
still retain the formal “Mr. (or
Captain) and Mrs. Jones. Most
younger couples, however, prefer the
friendlier “John and Alice Jones.”
It is perfectly proper to include the
children’s names and even the name
of the family Scottie. Or make the
signature all-inclusive and simpler
by writing “The John Lanes.”
Because Christmas cards are the
personal expression of your regard
for the person to whom they are
sent, you should double check to be
certain that all cards are correctly
signed and addressed. The best eti
quette directs that they be mailed
with first-class postage. When you
use first-class postage on your
Christmas cards, you are, in effect,
saying to your friends, “I’m not tak
ing any chances that this greeting
■ will be delayed on its way to you.”
Bean Winner Rules
On Twelfth Night
Epiphany, or the Feast of the
Kings, is the great homecoming day
in France; servant girls would
rather lose their positions than miss
the family reunion and expect to
receive an extra month’s pay to wit.
The elaborate dinner features a
cake in which a China bean has
been hidden; the cake is cut into as
many pieces as there are persons in
the party. Whoever finds the bean
in his or her piece of cake auto
matically becomes King or Queen
of Twelfth Night and proceeds to
choose his or her partner. The King
and Queen reign over the ensuing
festivities each member of the
party being obliged to obey their
ridiculous commands.
Clerical employees expect a bonus
and tradespeople anticipate Christ
mas boxes on Epiphany and Christ
mas trees are set up in stores and
public places around which patrons
pile heaps of gifts to be distributed
in hospitals and among the poor.
As far back as the Fifth century
Christians invested holly branches
with a symbolism that helped to keep
sacred memories alive. The crimson
berries symbolized the blood shed on
Calvary by the Founder of the
Christian religion; the prickly leaves
held remembrances of the crown of
thorns; and the bitterness of the
holly bark was symbolic of the
draught of which Christ partook
while hanging on the cross.
Once, in fact, there was a custom
of making o edcoction from the bark,
and drinking it in the midst of the
Christmas celebrations, so that—in
the words of an old writer —“Ye
shall not forget the cross as ye re
joice in the manger.”

The use of Tuberculosis Christ
mas Seals on all Christmas cards
gives them a gayer appearance, it
was stated by William B. Matthews,
•ir., Acting Executive Secretary of the
Maryland Tuberculosis Association
as he urged everyone to make re
turns for the seals sent them.
“With Christmas almost here,”
said Mr. Matthews, “We are all send
ing out many cards of greeting and
cheer. Everyone should be sure that
each envelope has stamped on it a
Christmas Seal as a sign that you are
tor good health.
“The money raised by these penny
seals is used to finance the anti-tu
terculosis program of the Maryland
tuberculosis Association and its
County units. This program includes
Free Clinics, X-raying, Medical Re
search, Tuberculin Testing, and
Health Education,” Mr. Matthews
Earlier Governor Herbert H. O’-
Conor had indorsed the Christmas
Seal Sale and called on all citizens
of Maryland to support it by purchas
ing the seals. Although many returns
have been made this year’s sale is
running 15% per cent behind the
1944, the Association announced.
The Sale will close on Christmas
