Ewell K. Noland asks for a divorce from Iva P. Noland. They were married June 12, 1920 and separated May 5, 1931. He alleged cruel and inhuman treatment, that defendant was cross with him, nagged him and found fault, has a high temper, would frequently become angry with him, abuse him, tell him she did not care for him and fussed at him whenever he was in her presence. They have one child, Ima Jean, nine years old, who has been with defendant's people. Plaintiff desires the custody and control of the child but if defendant can provide a suitable home he is willing for a court order accordingly and he will contribute to the support of the child. The parties live in Eel River Township.
