LAWRENCE, ANNA, FRANK AND
BESSIE ARE ALL CONCERNED
Folks ought to read of happenings
in the court Of domestic relations
once in a while then run along and
appreciate their ""Home, Sweet
Home." Hence, read and appreciate
not the stories, but the place where
you hang your hat.
Lawrence Grizzell, 1970 N. Hal
sted, is a strong believer in personal
liberty. This strength sent him to
the Bridewell when Judge Hopkins
ordered him held on security bond in
the court of domestic relations.
It seems Lawrence once agreed
to hand his wife, Anna, five bucks per
week for the support of their child,
Ruth, five years old. Anna, how
ever, evidently fearing the "per
week" might more likely be per-haps,
went to court about it and the judge
ordered Lawrence to pay what he
had previously agreed to. This made
the payer sore and he reneged. "I
come from a class of people who will
not be forced to do what they fell it
is not their duty to 1I0," explained
Lawrence to Judge HopkinB. The
former didn't have security bond, so
he's in the BridewelL
So much for Lawrence and Anna.
Now come Frank and Bessie.
The same judge as in the first story
told Frank to hand Bess a five-spot
every Saturday for the support of
their three children, Mildred, Frank
and Bessie, Jr. Frank agreed on
condition that he be allowed to see
his flock once in a while.
"Nix," said Anna.
"Yes," snapped the judge. "If this
man pays for their support he has a
right to see them."
And Anna repeated: "Nix."
So Judge Hopkins let Frank go,
canceling the "five-per" order.
PARKER GETS BACK AT PETE
The high school immorality squab
ble has settled on one head. Parker
Sercombe, statistician for the school
board, was the one quoted by Mrs.
L. Z. Meder when she said there were
359 pregnant girls in the high
schools every year.
Sercombe admitted giving the fig
ures, but denied that they were
authentic. Coroner Peter Hoffman
discharged him as coroner's statis
tician Friday. And Sercombe shot a
verbal broadside at the coroner.
Parker says Pete is a publicity
seeker. He claims authorship to all
of the coroner's high brow literature.

A SASSIETY BLUNDER
Jim Keeley's bunch over on the
Herald "pulled a boner" Friday.
When the Edward Tildens of the
famous butcher-banker family scrap
ped and were parted over a pretty
little show girl the other day the Her
ald printed a picture.
The photograph pulled from "the
morgue" was labelled ''Mr. and Mrs.
Edward Tilden," but Keeley says it
really was a picture of Mr. and Mrs.
All the highbrows in town knew the
Averill Tildens by sight and they just
felt inclined to snicker. The Tildens
complained. So Keeley apologized.
Now that they're hiding booze in
coffins in Tennessee, grave robbing
in that state is liable to become more
