According to the attached 1922 Chicago Tribune story and picture, Joseph was sent home from jail to support his family. He said that he and his wife had "made up." The 1930 Census document suggests that 8 years later, their marriage was still going strong.

Joseph's quotes from the Tribune story where he admits to gaining 27 pounds during his two month of confinement for refusing to pay alimony:

"After breakfast we take a little nap, or read if we have a mind... at 9 o'clockwe stroll about the spacious corridor in the center of the building."

"...another little siesta and from 2 to 4 we again stroll about and discuss politics and plan how to make the world safe for democracy."

"The hum of the great city all about us subsides gradually as we dress for dinner..."

"Altogether it is very interesting and comfortable, though a little confining."
