DIAMETER WITH JUNE-DECEMBER MARRIAGE ENDS WITH DIVORCE WAYNESBURG, Feb. 21.--The comparative June - December romance of William Allcr Ritson Hig- gcnbotham Aller which was climaxed in their marriage here in November, 1934, when he was 80, and she was 45, reached the end of its troubled trail today with the granting of a divorce to the aged husband by Judge Challen W. WaychofT on gioundr of cruelty and infidelity. The marriage here of the aged Allcr, then a resident of Mount Pleasant, and the middle-aged mother of two children by an earlier marriage, soon brought on a storm of protests from Allcr's sons by an earlier marriage. Legal action brought here and in the Westmoreland county courts to terminate the mariiage, proved futile and the couple resided together as man and wife. Some months ago, however, Aller filed a divorce libel, charging that his wife had hit him with a stove poker, had threatened to kill him with a hatchet and had been unfaithful to her marriage vows. Aller, who was said to have "owned considerable real _ estate m Mount Pleasant, now lives In Monongahcla township, Greene county, while Mrs. Allcr resides in adjoining Cumber- 'and township.
