(UP i — The constutionalily of a 19-17 law creating a second Chancery Court in Pulasky County will be tested in a divorce suit filed in Arkansas Supreme Court yesterday.

Sullivan .said that the chief grounds on which he is contesting the divorce, will he. that Chancellor Ruth Hale, named chancellor by the 1947 act, does not have jurisdiction over divorces. Earlier. Sullivan had said he would tpie-stion the second Chancellor's validity on the grounds that the legislature had no power to make the appointment, and that ihe General Assembly was without authority to pass local legislation.
