IRENE TROTTER ASKS DIVORCE FROM DESERTING HUSBAND
Alleging cruel and inhuman treatment, Irene Hays Trotter filed suit for a divorce from her husband, William Fred Trotter, Saturday, in the local court. The Trotters were married on December 22, 1920 and separated on March 14, 1933. The plaintiff asks that her maiden name, Irene Hays, be restored, for an absolute divorce and for all proper and general relief in the premises.
Fred Trotter left his home on March 15, without telling his wife his destination and has not been heard from since that date. Trotter was a prominent young farmer of Marion Township.
