SCOTT vs. BOWMAN
Miss Tacy Levers, of Wooster, married G. A. Scott about seven years ago and soon after their union became the mother of a boy. After five years of wedded life she was divorced and married a man named Bowman. Scott recently brought suit for possesion of the boy, now almost six years old, and Mrs. Scott-Bowman created a sensation in court by declaring that Scott was not the father of the child.
