Heartless Federal prohibition agents completely spoiled the honeymoon of Emery Walls, 22 years old, Latham, Pike County, Ohio, and Miss Lenora Primer, Morgantown, Ohio, when they arrested the young man with his father, Grover Walls, 47, and his brother, Clement, 24, at their home in Latham late Saturday under charges of having conspired together to sell and possess 10 gallons of liquor and to conduct a common nuisance. The officers were at the Latham home when the young man and his bride arrived there from the office of Magistrate McCollough, Waverly, Ohio, who just had married them. Emery immediately was taken into custody by the officers and, with his father and brother, was brought by the officers to Cincinnati and lodged in Hamilton County Jail. Yesterday the trio were arraigned in United States Commissioner's Court. They entered pleas of not guilty and their preliminary hearing was set for March 15, in default of bonds they were committed to Hamilton County Jail.  [The Cincinnati Enquirer (Cincinnati, OH) - 8 Mar 1932, pg. 6; tr by KT]
