As the bishop turned into Enright
avenue the negroes accosted him.
tut as he is slightly deaf, he did not

purse from it. From another pock
et the other purse was taken. The
watch, an old fashioned open faced,

"When the selective service "act
came these fellows hurried to get
a marriage license and then pleaded
that they had dependent wives.
How they are showing their real
caliber by deserting the woman who
kept them out of war."
Judge Gemmill said that the in
crease in complaints against slacker
husbands had been alarming. In
December, 1917, there were 34 such
warrants. Thus far in December,
1918 there have been 196.
