Strict Reno Divorce Law    (April Fool's Day - 1931)

April fool story distributed by NEA to its subscribers:

"A strict blue law regime went into effect throughout the state today with passage of the new divorce laws which require 20 years residence prior to application for divorce. Reno business men agreed that $5,000,000 a year was nothing as compared to a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Aspiring divorcees will just have to wait until 1951, that's all."
