Declarations of intentions of citizenship were filed in the district court by Joseph Sanaria of Potlatch, a subject of Italy, also by Tony Valorg of Potlatch, a subject of Austria. Owing to chaotic conditions of government Judge Nelson was uncertain as to whom the declarant should announce allegiance, but concluded that if it was made to the present government of Austria such recommendation would satisfy the federal department of naturalization.

Frank Howard Van Syke of Moscow, Idaho, has been granted citizenship by Judge Steel. Mr. Van Syke was born in America but immigrated to Canada and became a citizen there thus it required the same steps as any foreigner to again become a citizen of the United States.

It was just learned today that Dr. J.J. Herrington and Mrs. Luella McKee were quietly married in Moscow on January 1, at the Baptist parsonage by the Rev. Dean Hamilton, pastor of that church.

Dr. Herrington came here but recently but he seems to be "making himself at home." The happy couple will make their home in Moscow, where both have many friends.

Mr. and Mrs. Fred Campbell, of Moscow, are perhaps the happiest people in town, as the result of a telegram received from their son, Clyde [Campbell], dated at New York and reporting that he is well and is being sent to Camp Merritt. Clyde was reported "officially" as "missing in action on October 5" and was believed to be dead. The war department sent the report to Mr. and Mrs. Campbell by telegraph and the distracted parents were unable to get any definite information from their son until the telegram came which seemed almost like a message from the dead. Their many friends here rejoice with them over the good news.
