This afternoon Attorney Adam Barber put the wife and her blind sister and the co-respondent, Fred Cano, on the stand to deny the flat charge of the husband that his wife had had illicit relations with Cano in Salinas. This morning Ernest Lagunas, a witness for the husband, swore that he saw the wife and Cano breaking the highest moral law in the transoby town.
The Duckworths whave been married several years and have two children, one three years of age and the other four months.
The husband has been to war and when he returned soon had entered the divorce court charging his wife with gross indiscretions with Cano. She filed a complaint almost as soon as he did charging him with extreme cruelty. She introduced a picture in evidence which her husband brought back from France in which three young, voluptuous girls reveal their charms completely unadorned. The husband is charged with showing the photograph to children in her presence.

Judge Knight also admitted the justice of the request made by Adam Barber, Mrs. Duckworth's attorney, for extra cost and extra fees, with the result that Cano must also pay these.
The court roasted Cano from the bench, stating that he would always do everything in his power to protect the home for the man who was serving his country in an emergency liek the great war. Judge Knight stated his regrets at not being able to punish Cano for his immoral acts.
By the terms of the interlocutory decree, which is given the husband, the two children, one three years old and the other four months, will remain with the wife. The relief asked in the wife's cross complaint is denied, but she is awarded $20 per month for the support of the children.
