WIFE  SAYS  HUSBAND
REFUSED  TO  WORK
----------
(From Fridayís Daily)
          Mrs. Mary Tillison, 506 Montgomery street, has filed a complaint against  Allie Tillison,  in the Shelby circuit court for a divorce, charging failure to provide and the defendantís refusal to secure employment.  The couple was married June 12, 1920, and the separation occurred January 1, 1923. Elmer Bassett is the attorney for the plaintiff.
          Mrs. Tillison asserts in the complaint that she gave the defendant $100 of her money after their marriage on his promise to repay her, but that he has never done so.  She states that she was compelled to work at Indianapolis from the time of their marriage until March, 1922, when she returned to this city to live at the home of her mother.  The defendant provided her with no clothing and refused to go to housekeeping she says.  He went to Anderson, Indiana to work, the first of the year, the complaint sets out and promised to provide a home there but she asserts that when she arrived at Anderson, he again refused to provide a home and she returned here.
          The defendant is now residing in Anderson, the complaint states, and is now working in that city.  Mrs. Tillison requests the return of her former name of  Mary Headlee.
