Another ukulele in divorce court

It is not always true that a family that plays together stays together. The Lundington Sunday Morning News of 2 June 1931 reported that Mr. and Mrs.Fahy parted ways after a game of Bridge. They were partnering one another, and Mrs. Fahy, in a moment of enthusiasm, over-bid her husband (and I suppose they lost the hand). Mr. Fahy was so mad that he hit his wife. He also deducted their losses of the evening from the house-keeping money. Judge Theodore J. Richter gave Mrs. Fahy a divorce, some money and promises, as well as the family ukulele.
