Gave Up After Viewing Accident Homesick Pair Reported to Mayor Sugden and Were Returned to Farmington. •Two Farmington girls, Geraldine Butler, 12, and Virginia Holmes, 15, ran away-from school Friday because their parents scolded them, and started for Chicago. All went well with the two until they reached Ypsilanti. Here they were forced to travel on foot. They walked towards Saline for a distance of about two miles and an. automobile rah -over and killed a small white dog that had followed them for a short distance. .. Fear of a similar fate in the darkness and sympathy for the small animal turned to remorse and homesickness, and when a motorist brought the travelers to Saline they immediately bagan to look for some means of getting back to their homes. Finally they reported tneir plight to Mayor Mark B. Sugden, who notified officials at Farmington. It was not long before.*the. parents of the two were in Saline and took the girls to their homes. $210.18 Disbursements: George Wahr, books. _. $ 99,62 Saline Mercantile Co., fuel.... 4.09 E. J.

"DeFoe, keen observer of Michigan affairs, says the horrible, suspicion has been growing o'n him of late that a lot of the boys arei deliberately having themselves sent to prison for a few months in order ; to get in out of the storms of depresr ; sion, where they know they will dine with regularity and at the same time avoid financial worries. The Charlotte editor also opines .that most- of the prisoners are in a much better' mental- condition, .than the average retail merchant.—Ionia News Saline Loses To Clinton Quintet Friday By 38-30 Local Boys Unable to Make Up for Opponents' Big Score in the First Half.
