Edward Prioleau, Negro, is seeking damages from his brother and sil for alleged wrecking of store on 2414 Santa Fe Ave. During the trial, the sil stated that she had lost her skirt, one shoe, and a bracelet in the fight, which Edward produced. Edward said his brother entered his store and breaking bottles and windows and damaging his merchandise. William accused his brother of throwing bricks through his windows and filed a counterclaim.

Bertha wrote a letter to the paper talking about what a good farmer she is. She mentions that her mother was sick. She attended Santa Fe Ave school.
