of Collin County, at the Court
House in McKinney, Texas.
Said plaintiffs petition was fil-
ed on the 11th day of February,
1050. The file number of said suit
being No. 21510. The names of
the parties in said suit are:
Clara B. Rains as Plaintiff, and
Homer O. Rains as Defendant.
The nature of said suit being
substantially as follows, to wit:
Plaintiff alleges that she has
been an actual bona fide resident
of the State of Texas, for more
than 12 months prior to the filing
of this suit and has resided in
the County of Collin for more
than 6 months next preceding the
filing of this suit.
That she was married to ciefen-
dant on June 28. 1933 and separa-
ted Oct. 25th 1048. That on or
about* June 28th, 1940, defendant
began a series of studied vexations
and provocations toward plain-
tiff which continued until the
said separation. That such treat-
ment on the part of defendant
towards plaintiff was of such a
nature as to render their further
living together as husband and
wife insupportable. Plaintiff prays
for a divorce from the defendant
and for the custody and educa-
tion of their five minor children
and for $130.00 monthly for their
support and education and for
special and general relief.
If this Citation is not served

straw, and fair-play is the keynote
of its success and popularity.
The idea in sumo is to throw the
opponent out of the ring, or to the
floor. The slightest touch of the
knee or finger to the ground is
considered a fall. When one con-
testant is ready to go, he stands
up with a shout, and issues the
"challenge". If the other is not
ready, he yells "Matta", and the
action is postponed long enough
for both to leave the ring for a sip
of water and a sprinkle of salt,
which used to be a ritual for suc-
cess and safety.
