    • (1) On June 11, 1934, Mrs. C. A. STARNS ("Ida"), as plaintiff, filed a petition for divorce from her husband, C. A. STARNS ("C. A."), as defendant, in the District Court of Cleveland County, OK, under case no. 12370. The law firm of Muldrow and Keller represented Ida, and C. A. represented himself, in the divorce proceeding.

      On June 11, 1934, the court entered a temporary restraining order against C. A., "restraining and enjoining the defendant from or in any manner interferring [sic] with the care and custory of the children or with the plaintiff, or from going to the house of the plaintiff and causing any annoyance or disturbance."

      On July 7, 1934, Ida filed an amended petition for divorce from C. A., in which she alleged:

      "That she is a resident in good faith of Cleveland County, State of Oklahoma, and has been for more than one year next preceeding [sic] the filing of this petition.

That Jeanett is in the care and custody of the plaintiff. [Note by compiler: Two other children, Earl and Glennie, were born of the marriage but died young.]

      "That the defendant has been guilty of extreme cruelty toward the plaintiff in that he has continually nagged at and abused her; that he has continually found fault with her and with practically everything that she has done; that on one occasion the defendant slapped and choked the plaintiff. That by reason of the facts hereinbefore set forth, defendant has made the life of the plaintiff unbearable; that he has kept her in constant mental strain and worry; that her health has been endangered; that she cannot continue to live with him as his wife,

      "Plaintiff further states that she and the defendant have a limited amount of personal property accumulated during their married life; that said. property briefly described is as follows:

      "Household and kitchen furniture.

      "Plaintiff prays that the court make an order awarding her the said personal property as part of the relief prayed for in this petition.

      "That the plaintiff is a fit and proper person to have the care and custody of the said minor child of the parties hereto, and that the care and custody of the child should be awarded to the plaintiff; that the plaintiff is entitled to an order of this court restraining and enjoining said defendant from in any way interferring with her or molesting her, and from interferring with her custody of the said child.

      "Plaintiff further states that she has always conducted herself toward the defendant as a true and faithful wife, and has given him no just cause or provocation for his extreme cruelty toward her as above set forth."

      On July 9, 1934, the court entered a decree of divorce which provides in part as follows:

      "The court, having heard the oral testimony of witnesses, sworn and examined in open court, and being fully advised of the premises, and on consideration thereof, finds that all the material allegations alleged in the plaintiff's petition are true, and that the plaintiff is entitled to an absolute decree of divorce from the defendant, by reason of the extreme cruelty of the defendant toward the plaintiff.
