WIFE SEEKS DIVORCE
Pearl D. Pruitt filed suit for a divorce from Oscar M. Pruitt, Saturday, in the local clerk's office. The plaintiff alleges that the defendant left her on July 31 of this year and has not yet returned or made any attempt to provide for her. The complaint states that the Pruitts were married in 1925 and lived together until the desertion by the defendant. They lived on a farm on the Brownsburg-Avon road.
