Wife Sues Over Second Woman in Husband’s Bed

Wednesday, May 5, 1943

p.2_May 5, 1943Judge John P.Lupe ordered $22.50 a week as separate maintenance to the mother of five who found a young woman in her husband’s bed.  The woman, a guest in the house, claimed she was just cold. The husband claimed the situation was “purely platonic.” Crowded beds were a reality as a growing wartime production work force scrambled for limited living space. It was a situation to chuckle over as the war dragged on and death toll mounted. General Frank M. Andrews, commander of all US forces in the European theater, was killed in a plane crash somewhere in Iceland. The Navy announced that a U-Boat had sunk a merchant ship. Twenty men were still missing. And somehow President Roosevelt was determined to have a fighting force of 11,000,000 by the end of this year.
