Chautauqua, N. Y., June 21.
The runaway flapper marriages are
marked for death by representatives
of two million American women as
sembled here at the convention of
the federation of women's clubs.
Launching a drive for reform of
divorce and marriage laws, the con
vention leaders advocate:
1 Repeal of all 6tate marriage
and divorce statutes.
2 Passing of a federal law, gen
eral in its application.
This movement was started after
futile efforts to induce various states
to pass uniform laws were made.
Mrs. Genevieve Parkhurst, writer
on women's subjects, is here repre
senting supporters of the movement.
The proposed law which will be
presented to congress for action con
tains the following provisions:
No girl under eighteen or boy
under twenty-one can marry without
their parent's consent or that of
their guardian. Banns announcing
the intended marriage must be pub
lished two weeks before the cere
mony. Physicians' certificates as to
the mental and physical fitness of
both parties to the marriage must
be shown when the license is issued.
Divorces are to be allowed for

desertion for a period of, one year or
more, proved infidelity and habitual

The Home of the Soul
In olden tlms. it was believed
that the eeat of the soul was the
stomach, most likely for the reason
that a man is never so completely
used up as when his stomach Is out
of order. For the cure of ordinary
stomach troubles, there is nothing
quite so prompt and satisfactory it

Mr. Tinkham's attack brought
from Representative Gallivan, demo

Prohibition Commissioner Haynes for
the latter's stand regarding sale of
liquor on American ships at sea. In
refusing to act against such ships,
Mr. Gallivan declared, Mr. Haynes
made himself "particep criminis." j
