Beware of a Charlie Chaplin Mustache

CLEVELAND, Dec. 7 – A Charlie Chaplain[sic] mustache has no place out of the movies. Judge Kennedy decided in court here today. It was in the case of Oscar Martin, who is suing his wife for divorce. When Martin got on the stand Judge Kennedy got a god look at the upper lip decoration.

“Get off the stand,” Kennedy cried. “Anybody with a mustache like that has no business anywhere, let alone in a court room.”

Martin departed for a barber shop and the case was continued.
