Hoeck, north Kossuth, was ordered jailed Tuesday by Judge A .Heald, of Spencer, on a charge of contempt of court when Hoeck failed to show up for a hearing on the charge. The contempt proceeding was brought by Hoeck's mother-in-law, Mrs. Bratha Brighten, who charged Hoeck with failure to provide support for hia child, which was placed in her care. Two other husbands were called into court for contempt hearings on charges brought by divorced wives of failure to provide for child support—George Good, and larence Crouch. Mutual Adultery Charges. The history of the Hoeck case goes back several years to the time he was .sentenced to the penitentiary on a grand larceny charge. He .served 14 months. In November 10o4, after his release he brought suit against his wife, charging her with adultery. She filed a counter- suit charging him with abuse adultery, and being a felon. After a discussion in court the case was settled by awarding the divorce to Mrs. Hoeck, together with custody of the child. Mrs. Hoeck also received $500 alimony settlement, and a $100 attorney fee for her attorney was paid by Hoeck. In, a stipulation of' settlement Hoeck agreed to furnish suitable support for the child, tout the amount of money was not set forth in either the settlement or in the court order. Hoeck Not In JalL On July 13 Mrs. Brighten filed a non-support complaint, stating that she had cared for the child since March 25, 1937, and asked ?5 per week back pay, and a like sum each week for future care of the 11-year-old hoy. Hoeck -was arrested last night by Sheriff Loss, and lodged in jail, where he will remain till released by the court. He must pay, it the court so orders, the-amount asked by Mrs. Brighten, which now amounts to $350. Former Algoniang Summoned^ An order was entered requiring George Good, now of Spirit Lake, to appear and show cause why ho should not be similarly held in contempt of court. The hearing was S et for August 16. The complaint was filed by Mrs. Phyllis Good, who stated her former husband was behind $300 in support payments-of $20 per month for their child. The couple wore divorced in September, 1934. A similar complaint was fiJed against Clarence Crouch, and a hearing was also set f-jr August 16 on contempt charges. The complaint was filed by his ex-wife who alleged he was $30 behind in his payments. The couple was divorced in January. There are. four children, and un<isr the court order he was to pay $5 per child. He took charge of two of the children, joint care of the other two children. Intoxicated Driver Sentenced. O. S.
