Long, Short One No More

Woman in Divorce Suit Tells of Spouse Making Fun of Her.

The long and the short of it were represented in Judge Wood’s court yesterday, when the divorce suit of Leta P. Rorick against Gilbert G. Rorick came on for trial. Mr. Rorick is very tall. Mrs. Rorick is short.

She testified that Mr. Rorick “made fun” of her when they walked down the street together because she was short and he was long. Their domestic troubles apparently started from this; they quarreled and separated. Mrs. Rorick won a decree.
