A medical, Bocial and judicial
question has been raised nt
Francisco in tho divorcing of Mrs.
Anita Coover from David Coover on
other grounds than those set up in
the complaint nnd testified to by
Mrs. Coover while on tho witness
stand. This disparity between the
lines of testimony and tho nai'iao
of tho decree might he less signifi
cant than it is did not the decree
make a wide departure from prece
dent in making a disease not named
on tho statute a cause of divorce. The
disease singled out in this way Is
hookworm, recently brought into
great prominence through tho Rock
efeller donation for Its eradication.
Wherefore the proceedings in the
court at Snn Francisco are mado of
national If not of world-wide inter
est. Mrs. Coover, while on the stand,
according tho full and, we presume,
veraciotih press report, said: "My
husband was dull, stupid, lazy, lan
guid and slow." - It would seem that
ntittof such a long list or faults, not
to say vices, any court would be able
to find one on which to base a de
cree of divorce. Of course, many of
the terms used by Mrs. Coover In
drawing a mental pen picture of her
husband aro really synonymous. A
man vho Is dull cannot well escane
being stupid, and one who Is languid
and lazy, must, by force of natural
Hut, after pooling the
issues, and making a merger of Da
vid Coover's habits of mind and body
and reducing them to their inst ulti
mate definitions, the residuum would
be found enough to govern the ac-
