Hcrmaine, Fourth avenue The idea is very good. It might solve the divorce problem. But, I think that its a little too far fetched to be practical. George Flemming, 8843 Narrows uvenue I sec absolutely no necessity for these companionate mairiages. Legally they are married, but in reality they are not.

Divorces will be on the increase when these silly things are generally used. Mrs. Margaret Kaiser, 7803 Fort Hamilton parkway These marriages seem to be used on a betrothal basis. They are not essential. Divorces will not be affected by them.

John Griffith, 687 Seventy-fifth street Companionate marriages will be a failure. People who contract them will see how foolish they are and the divorce courts will be cluttered UP those who want them annulled. Miss Veronica Wagner, 967 Sixty-fifth street These marriages are just a fad. They are the outcome of a publicity-mad generation. Engagements answer the same purpose.

The divorce rate will raise, due to these marriages. Martin E. Cassidy, 5308 Seventh avenue Companionate marriage and Free Love are synonymous. The joys and Pe-ures of married life without the obligations. The only reasonable outcome of one of these unions will be divorce.

Mrs. Eloise Marvin, 225 Terrace place Companionate marriage, as the Kansas couple used it, is too broad. The only way these young people will realize what marriage is will be by having their own home. I think that type of marriage will increase the divorce practice. will become greater.

There are too many loopholes to the explosive ships menace The land about Gravesend Bay is no longer an solated itretch of beach front. Realty booms in the Bath Beach md Bensonhurst sections have brought thousands -amilies to live in the apartment houses and homes he vicinity of the bay. Therefore the sub-committee he New York Maritime Exchange, appointed to investigate harbor conditions, is to be commended for its report vessels laden with explosives should not Prmlted 0 anchor in Gravesend Bay, as now permitted by shipping regulations. The committee will recommend in its report that a vessels laden with explosives be forced to anchor in Sandy Hook Bay, the shores about which are sparsely settled, and which will afford a safer anchorage If one of the ships laden with tons of explosives happened to blow up, the damage and loss of life tha would probably result could hardly be estimated Many persons living in and around the Gravesend Bay section realize the danger at their doors and have been living in fear of some dreadful calamity. marriages.

Divorces will be greater. Thomas Ready, 142 Prospect Park West The things are a joke. They never will solve divorce. People who use this companionate thing are the same type as those who get divorced. Real people dont do either.

Miss Kitty Brown, 327 President street The marriages are foolish. They will never solve anything. Only Bolsheviks would be married that way. Mrs J. Weaver, 259 Ninth mock marriage will be a disgrace to the nation.

Our divorce rate will be greater. Nothing is accomplished by these marriages. They ignore the teachings of ages. Marriage is sacred. It should not be treated this way.

Miss Dorothy McGregor, 82 Elm avenue The companionate marriage is a marriage in name only. What good is it? It will never solve the divorce question. Walter McCarthy, 1028 Avenue I The only thing companionate man-iage will do is to let a lot of fellows get married who are afraid to stand the expense of keeping a home. Why get a divorce from one of these marriages? No expense and all the pleasures.

Mrs. P. J. Grimes, 962 Avenue These marriages are useless. They will never solve any problems.

Seeing a man a few times a week is no way to judge him. You have to live with him before you know him. Miss Jean Banka, 2406 Albemarle road Companionate marriage is a Communistic idea. Those who enter them will not bother about a divorce. Bigamy the problem which will follow these marriages.

Stephen Felix, 126 Sterling niace Companionate marriage will be a failure. Those who enter them will want their ifc' dom and they will have the judges of the divorce courts worK-ing overtime. 'Miss Celeste Grecco, 296 Union street Marriage is too great a thing to be played with, as did this couple, who entered the companionate marriage. It is too loose a tie which binds these Thomas Jenkins, 5 Sherman street These marriages are not necessary. A couple should know whether thy want to be married before they enter into any contract or ceremony.

I do not think they will solve any problem at all. Miss Mary Van Horn, 942 East Eighth street Companionate marriage is the invention of a couple who are very radical ideas Divorces will increase because of these marriages. Herbert Carson, 829 Coney Island avenue Nothing binds one to a companionate marriage. It is a sort of business proposition. A couple of kids wanted to get into the limelight and did.

No problems will be solved by these marriages. I think the ligitimacy of a lot of children will be questioned by these marriages. Miss Betty Sutherland, 780 East Third street Divorces will become the thing if these marriages become popular. Young folks will rush into them and then when they realize what they are they will want to get out of them as quickly as possible. Mrs.
