    "The Superior Judge
    Superior Judge Homer Sackett, aged 69, left the Bench at Gary, Indiana, yesterday, and grappled with the defendant in a divorce case who struck a woman witness.
    The judge twice threw to the floor the defendant, who was six feet three inches and weighed 175 pounds. Judge Sackett then returned to the Bench and fined him £50 and sentenced him to 90 days for contempt of court.—Associated Press."
