Urges Religious Board to Calm Marital Disputes


The creation of a “religious board” consisting of Catholic, Protestant and Jewish clergy to settle “marital disruption” was urged by the Rev. John J. Moylan, pastor of St. Mary’s Church here.

“Separations and annulments are often the results of trifies that have been magnified, and through religious guidance these trifles could be eliminated,” Father Moyan declared. His plan has attracted public attention and favorable comment from the local fairs is used for charity cases.

Thirty tables were filled. The receipts were nearly $38. And the prizes given out were little tea mixers.

It wasn’t until the next day that Mrs. Geisler’s phone began to ring Several winners had discovered that the tea mixers were made in Germany.

Exasperated, Mrs. geisler and another member of the committee commandeered an automobile, drove from winner’s house to winner’s house, collected all thirty tea mixers, and returned them to the store where they were purchased.

New prizes will be given to each of the thirty winners.
