They will be detailed from the reserve corps to ' command units in the: na tional army . or . regular, army, but- at the conclusion of hostilities will be retained in the reserve corps and returned to the inactive list. Those officers appointed directly from the training camps to the national army will be mustered out after the war and will not be automatically avail able in the event of any subsequent need "The War department has, there fore, adopted the policy of appoint ing lo the .officers reserve corps all men whose age permits and who are otherwise satisfactory, j,ne maximum age limits for appointment to the of ficers' reserve corps are: For major, 45: for captain; 40; for first lieutenant, 36; for second lieutenant, 32.

Edwin Hart Jenks performed at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs.' Frank W. Car penter. . ' 1 .. , One is not surprised at ihe almost military precision and dispatch w hich characterized this wedding, for the bride,, a graduate of the University of Omaha last June, comes of a mili tary family, vfter father is now in Manila, for he is department governor of the Philippines. Her : brother, Frank W. Carpenter, jr.; also" won a lieutenant's comnfission at Fort Snell ing, and arrived 'home in time to be present at the wedding. The cere mony was performed beneath a large American nag, flags also being used throughout the rooms. Both the groom and his best man wore their new khaki uniforms. " i The young couple wiU spend Lieu tenant Proudfit's twelve days of leave between Omaha and Friend, Neb., with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Proudfit.

Lieutenant Paisley has been assigned to the training camp of the draft army at Rockford, III., at which post'tlie young couple will probably make their home for the present. Lieutenant Paisley is -an Omaha boy, a graduate of the Omaha High school, though for the last few years he and his parents, Mr. .and Mrs. W. O Paisley, have been -Hying at Mar ion, 111., where the young army offi cer, was city editor of the Daily Re publican. , i ' Still another interesting wedding of early Saturday morning, was the cer emony which united Lieutenant Don ald J. Burke, who received his com mission at. Plattsmquth last year, and Miss Ivy May Lee, daughter of Mr. and .'Mrs.,. George H. Lee. Rev. Father Hugh Gately performed the ceremony at St. Cecelia's cathedral at 6 o'clock.

Talented - tjfargaee. Whether . his bride will accompany him to Camp Dodge is not definite. Friday -morning at a breakfast to which Miss Anna McConnell of Council Bluffs invited some twenty of her young girl friends, announce ment was made of her approaching marriage on Thursday to Lieutenant Harry Jennings, son of Dr. and Mrs. H. C. .Jennings, who received his commission at Fort Snelling. The wedding will take place at the First Methodist church, at 8:30 o'clock and will be followed by a reception at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. McConnell,1 making this, perhaps, the most pretentious of the war-time weddings. Announcement of Miss McCon nell's wedding date was made in the most ' chaining manner. The break fast was a pink one with bowls ; of pink flowers decorating the one large table and two smallet. Ones at which the guests were seated. At each place was a heart-shaped pink card .tied with pink tulle, bearing the pho- F. 1 . t . 1. . . . 1 . lograpns or me iwo young people and below it their wedding date.

New Bedford, Mass.; Lorine Campbell. Angela Shukert, Mrs. Ber nard Beno and Mrs. Earl Baird. A pretty feature of the wedding is the fact that the bride's grandfather, the Rev. Dr. Stephen L. Phelps of Bellevue. Neb., will perform the cere mony. Two of the bridesmaids are Council Bluffs girls, Miss Mary Still-man-and Miss Mary Mitchell. The other two, who arrive Monday, are School friends of the bride at Beech wood, near Philadelphia; Miss Anne Harcount of Chillicothe, O., and Miss 1 ' A ''",,t;x f - ' i'i'h'- ' - - U ' English Sisters SamU Brief Furlough Virginia Stubbs of Des Moines, Lieu tenant Jennings is having difficulty in securing the presence of the men in his wedding party, al most of them are 1 commissioned men, training in different officery. camps all over the country. Lieutenant Jennings ' at tended Culver Military academy and later Ames college. v Young friends of the bridal couple plan to fill he intervening days until the wedding with many entertain ments for them. There will b i a din ner party Monday evening and Wed nesday afternoon Miss Mary Mitchell will give a matinee party and tea for the bride.

Miss Lucile .Hager, sister of the bride, will be maid of honor, and the groom's sister, Miss Grace Robel, will be bridesmaid. Charles Robel,' broth er of the groom, will be best man. Only relatives and a few close friends will be present. Society is inclined1 to believe that there will be still one more interest ing weddlng before the officers re port for duty at Camp Dodge. The marriage or Miss Gertrude Owen, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. F. S- Owen, and Major Amos Thomas, wl;o re ceived the highest office at Fort Snelling, is the one anticipated.
