Goodrich, '17L, was married to Miss
Marian Sott, daughter of Prof. F. N.

of which Bob is sergeant, turned out
to a man to witness the ceremony',

set up for the boys afterwards. "Char-

"Brad" Braidfilc have both been frans-
ferred to the central department at
Chicago. The gaps in the sections
have 'been filled by Michigan men
wherever possible. Several boys from
the Universit of South Carolipa have
transferred to the Michigan sections.

nearly two weeks. In this land of

San Juan, P. R., Oct. 1.-Eight
hundred and forty-one native sons of
alien parents have become citizens of
the United States in Porto Rico under
the provisions of the Jones Act since
the approval of that law and approx-
imately 200 Porto Ricans have re-
jected citizenship, according to the
best information available.
With Judge Hutchinson sitting as
special United States Judge until af-
ter midnight citizenship papers were
issued to 83' new citizens on the last
day fixed by law for becoming Amer-
ican citizens by a formal declaration
of purpose.
Aliens in Porto Rico from now on
may become citizens of the United
States under the general naturaliza-
tion laws. The Jones Act provided
,that sons of alien parents within- six
months of the approval of the Act
might make their declaration in the
Federal court and become citizens in-
stead of taking' out first papers and
then waiting for a period of years be-
fore the final papers could be granted.
A few petitioners of German par-
entage were subjected to a somewhat
more rigid test than applied to other
nationalities, and were required to
satisfy the court that they could con-
scientiously subscribe to the oath of
,allegiance without mental reservation
pr thought of evasion.
Few Enroll in Law School
Registration in the Law School of
the Univeristy received-a great slump
this year. The registration for last
year totaled 134 while those who have
registered this year only number 53.
