From the Minneapolis Tribune:
Husband Sued By Wife
Asks Domicile on Lawn
(By Associated Press.)
Duluth, Minn., April 3. – Frank Kramer, 53, whose wife Louise is suing him for divorce, today petitioned the district court to permit him to erect a shack on the front lawn in which to live.
Kramer was ordered recently by the court upon petition of his wife to leave home during the progress of the suit. In his petition he asserts that living costs are so high that he was unable to support himself, to pay court costs and temporary alimony without some such arrangement. The court has taken his request under advisement.
