          Mrs. Cora Marie Creed, 121 Third street, has filed a complaint for a divorce in the Shelby Circuit Court, against Earl Edward Creed.  She also asks that her maiden name of Cora Marie Courtney be restored to her by the court. Alonzo Blair represents Mrs. Creed.
          The complaint states that the couple was married November 28, 1917, and separated in January 1923.  Mrs. Creed says that when they were married, her husband induced her to live at the home of his mother.  She says that she was compelled to pay her board out of her funds.  Her husband refused to provide a home, she charges.
          The wife asserts that her husband refused to work and did not provide her with clothing.  She alleged that he compelled her to loan him money she had earned.  The wife says that she gave her husband $230 of her money and that he refused to pay it back to her.  When she was sick and in a hospital for treatment she says that her husband refused to pay her bills and that when the defendant was sick, he compelled her to pay his doctor bill.  Her husband, she says, was cold and indifferent in his treatment of her.
