Charles B. Dickson was granted a di
vorce from Edna T. Dickson by Judge
Kennedy In the district court Tuesday.
Added to the text of the decree Is a claue
which Is new to divorce decree In Ne
braska. It reada: "Provided, however,
neither party hereto may marry within six
montha from this date unleas they marry
'This brings up an Important 'question In
the Intricate laws of divorce, "Hss a Judge
Jurisdiction to say that a couple shall not
remarry within a certain length of timer
Judge Kennedy firmly believes the Judge
has such power. . He would favor making
the term longer than he did In this case.
He believes the parties to a divorce suit
should be prohibited from remarrying for
from three to 'five year, at least
What the Jadge Say.
"Under our law," said Judge Kennedy,
"a couple may get a divorce her one day
and go. across the river to Council Bluffs
Immediately and marry again. It Is a
wretched state of affairs, and even In ordi
nary law procedure It Is, to ssy the least
premature. Either party to the suit may
appeal. If he or ahe desires, from the de
cision of the district court any time within
six months, and the upper court may set
the decree aside. Now, if one of the par
ties ha married again, and the supreme
court sets the divorce decree aside, then
that party is guilty of bigamy and could
be convicted and sent to the penitentiary,
"A decision by any Judge may be set
aalde by the Judge himself any time within
the term of court in which It la given, and
thus again the parties who hasten to marry
soon after a divorce run risk of the peni
tentiary through being convicted of big
amy." Judge Kennedy believe the state Is In
urgent need of amended divorce laws. He
thinks the plan of Judge Frost of Lincoln
to give "provisional divorces," that Is, de
crees which shaU not take legal effect until
a year or two or more after they are given,
would be good.
WALKS MUST BE CLEANED
