Oklahoma Man Makes a Quit Claim for a Divorce
Oklahoma City, Dec. 17 – Charles M. Donovan will now have a chance to see what Judge Edward Dewes Oldfield will do in a divorce case where a dancing wife is the defendant. A few days ago Judge Oldfield denied Mrs. Cecil Donovan a divorce from her husband when she admitted that she went to dances after he had objected to it.
Donovan then filed a suit asking for divorce from his dancing wife, and the case was assigned to Judge Oldfield’s division of the District Court. Donovan charges his wife with dancing and abandonment. (The Wichita Beacon, Wichita, Kansas, Friday, December 13, 1915, page 3)

Another War Bride is Seeking Divorce - Another war bride appeared in district court this morning seeking divorce from her soldier-husband.

Dorothy E. Miller of Oklahoma City filed suit for divorce from Joseph B. Miller formerly a member of battery "A" Ninth field artillery, stationed at Fort Sill.

The Millers were married at El Reno, October 7, 1918, while the husband was a soldier at Fort Sill. On August 9, he was discharged from the service and returned to his home state of New York without consulting his wartime bride, she alleges. The plaintiff further alleges that he did not write to her after December 1918, and that after receiving his discharge he spent three days in Oklahoma City without letting her know that he was here.
