PLATO  ISLEY  FILED
SUIT  FOR  DIVORCE
----------
          Plato Isley, farmer of Washington township, has filed a complaint for a divorce against  Lois Isley, in the Shelby Circuit court. He also asks for the custody of their five children.  Ralph Adams is attorney for the plaintiff.  The couple was married April 10, 1904, and separated March 5, 1922.  Mr. Isley charges that his wife is indolent, that she neglected her house, and permitted the children to become dirty.  The plaintiff alleges that his wife struck him with her fists and with a broom stick.  He says she caused a number of quarrels in their home community by telling false stories of him, and also to his friends, which would cause enmity between them.
