FRENCH COUPLE RESIDE WITH LOCAL WOMAN’S KIN An interesting story in last Saturday’s Rochester Post-Bulletin told how a French couple found peace and happiness on the farm of their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Hallaway of Dodge Center. Mr. Hallaway is a cousin of Miss Blanche Kinney of Mazeppa. Mr. Hallaway met his bride during the war, and after the war, Jazqueline Duvignau came to this county to marry him. An only child, Mrs. Hallaway had, with her husband’s approval, urged her parents to leave France and come to this country. They slowly grew accustomed to their new life, and M. Duvignau, a retired dentist, loves the American lumberjack shirts. Their furniture, has transformed the younger Halladays’ home into a showplace. Happy but restless, M. Duvignau has decided to handle a line of perfumes here, and is enchanted at the idea of selling it in a lumberjack shirt!

Hunters Report Varied Success From early reports, those hunters who pursued the elusive deer in Wabasha county were as well or better off than those who went to northern Minnesota. Among local hunters who bagged deer in the county were Alfred Gerken, Henry Gerken, John Ring and Carl Stull. Game wardens estimated that 300 deer were taken in the three southeastern counties the first two days. On the other hand, at least one local party that went north came back without seeing a trace of deer.
