'Spooks' Figure in Divorce Suit

Detroit Free Press, August 27, 1931
"I have a complex against seances," Mrs. Ethlyn Mann, Detroit Conservatory of Music dancing and dramatic art director, explained when she was granted a divorce Wednesday by Circuit Judge Theodore J. Richter.

In a cross-petition filed and later withdrawn by her husband, Carl F. Mann, operatic director at the conservatory, he charged Mrs. Mann with constantly attending "spook" parties and showing too much interest in occult matters. Her more prosaic petition complained merely that he failed to provide her with a home.

Mrs. Mann is living with her mother at 70 Highland avenue. Mr. Mann is living with his mother at 1941 West Grand boulevard.
