Ark.,' Mar. 2 (UP)— Arkansas' 90-day divorce law has not failed to live up lo fondest hone of the some MS-hotel mnnn»?ts and hundreds, of lawyers here, but totlfty their zeal lo "keep things quiet" had precipitated a 'battle" between them and nows- paiicrmen. lawyers, believing publicity will drive away the lucrative divorce busings which they are attempting to sidetrack from Reno. "America's divorce capital," have obtained (he support of the Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce in their effort to have absolul?. secrecy surround "even the most obscure" divorce cases. The first round in the "baH'o" between the lawyers and Ihe newspaper men was awarded the bar. The lawyers obtained permission lo withdraw all papers from the flics until action is called for trial. Tho reporters readily admit defeat of this ]»inl as they say when the "longest hearing" lasts but a few minutes and "11 will bD over before we can get wind of it." Sonia reports say lawyers are "guaranleeing" no publicity will be connected with suite they handle- that is not until It's all over. This lack of publicity, il Is hoped by business men, wil! help the Arkansas Spa to "out Reno. Reno." Government figures show more than 300,000 health and pleasure seekers come to the spa yearly.
