Solved Divorce Problem by Taking Wife Across Knee and Spanking Her
N.Y. Sun-Syracuse Herald — Special.
Evansville, Ind., March 1 — “I don’t kneed a lawyer to fight a divorce case,” said Frank Kuebler when told his wife had sued him.
Kuebler is a wealthy farmer and an educated man. His wife charged him with cruel treatment. As soon as he was informed of the suit he drove home and there faced his wife. He took her across his lap and spanked her with a slipper, according to her statements to the neighbors.
Kuebler and his wife came to her lawyer’s office here and she directed the attorney to immediately dismiss the suit for divorce.
“My wife didn’t want a divorce and I soon showed her she didn’t,” said Kuebler.
