FAILS TO GE' DIVORCE
Portland, Maine, Jan. 23.-Gladys a
M. Rhodes, who was but 13 years of
age when she married Rolley Rhodes
of Easley, South Carolina, at Phila
delphia, Pa., on Nov. 8, 1916, is de
nied her petition for divorce accord- t'
ing to the decision handed down by
Judge Sanborn here this afternoon. C
The trial of the case was concluded R
here over a month ago. The young
woman who is now 18 years of age,
testified that she married Rhodes, a I
sailor, only after great pleadings on C
his part and because she wished to s
escape school. Her testimony rela- C
tive to abuse received at the hands A
of Rhodes and of being thrown bodily
from his home in Easley by his peo
ple with but few clothes, no shoes
and penniless, created a sensation
here. This according to Mrs. Rhodes a
was her third attempt .to secure a C
divorce. Judge Sanborn in handing
down his denial of the petition, com- 01
mented on the case to great length. hI
