From The Oakland Tribune, 04 May 1917
DIVORCE IS GIVEN
That her husband had a habit of coming home at night and telling her about all the pretty girls with whom he had flirted was the complaint of Mrs. Elsie Long in the hearing before Superior Judge W H Waste of a suit for divorce from her husband, Lorenzo Long. She was awarded an interlocutary decree of divorce.
Mrs. Rowene Davis began divorce proceedings yesterday against John G. Davis, charging that he "called her names" in department stores, theaters, and at home. She explained that she did not mind it so much at home, but that it humiliated her when he abused her in public places.
