Amity Man Resists Suit

Chester A. Walling Files Answer To Wife’s Charges.

Allegations Of Improper Conduct Are Made.

In a cross-complaint to his wife’s suit for divorce Chester A. Walling, of Amity, Or., accuses Zella Walling of conduct which for the sake of his 4-year-old son he does not “care to properly characterize.”

The defendant in the suit answers his wife’s charge of cruelty with asserting, in papers filed in the Circuit Court yesterday, that she not only had a tempestuous and wasteful disposition, but that she had numerous young men callers during her husband’s working hours.  Two named by Mr. Walling are Nelson Walling, a cousin, and Alger Cooper, who boasted, says the husband, of their conquest in Amity.

On November 19, 1918, Mrs. Walling is accused of running away with C.E. Tatro, owner of a homestead at Trenholm, Columbia County, Or., from whose home Mr. Walling and the Sheriff of Columbia County took her December 24, 1918.  As a result of that alleged episode Mr. Walling says he filed suit for divorce in the Multnomah court, but had been persuaded to drop it on account of his youngest.

The plaintiff asks that the defendant’s suit be denied, but that he be granted the decree and custody of the child, Carvel Errol Walling.
