ELOPERS TAKE TO THE WOODS
Young Oregon Couple Flee to Mountains
When Parents Prevent Their Marriage
La Grande, Ore.--Posses are searching the fastnesses of the Blue mountains in a game of side and seek with a couple of youthful elopers. T. H. Hopson, 22, desired to marry Miss Clara Norris, 17, of Elgin, Ore. The girl's parents objected. The couple tried to get a license, but stern parents appeared in time to prevent the scheme being carried out.
