HE DOES THE COOKING, SHE PAYS THE RENT Paul Kerr gives bis wife Vicky a lasts of his stew in the kitchen of their Sacramento apartment. They have a relolion- ship lhat mosl would feel is unusual.

Paul says the key to house- work "is getting organized early." An inquiring reporter stopped husky, bearded Paul E. Kerr on the street the other day and asked his occu- pation.

There are four large windows down one side. The thin scattering of people sitting in the four long, unyield- ing wooden pews focus on the raised wooden bench, vacant for the moment, at the east enr! of the room. A red anri white flag rests limply at its side, and an elaborate coat-of- anns hangs high on the wall at the rear. On a small table in front of the bench, a tape re- corder waits in silent expecta- tion. A brief word from a ponder- ous official, and everyone rises to lu's feet. Enler Solomon with grey locks and a black cotton gown, to take his place at the bench. This is family court, where deep personal feelings come under the microscope in tlie cause of justice. It is not a place of happi- ness. A defendant is called, a di- vorced maji asked "to show cause" why he is in arrears with alimony. With the aid of his lawyer, he presents a sheet of figures to prove his expenses of the past six months outweigh his income. His second wife, he says, is supporting him. The case is dismissed. A youthful father asks for access to his small son. Divorce proceedings were commenced another court, but have reached a stalemate. The judge takes time out to verify his jurisdiction in the case before making a decision. Access is granted one week- end each month. The next defendant, In ar- rears with alimony and child maintenance, objects to the size of his payments. "I don't think I should pay lhat much when she's living with another man." Since the divorce, he has only worked intermittently, his law- yer claims. "If you can prove she's living with another man, go to an- other court and (try to) get this the judge advises. "I find you could have made some payment." The fine Is by July 15, Unfair domination of press 11972, or 21 days in default."

Tlic i lawyer for the child's father I favors the dignified, quietly in- sistent approach, while the mother's advocate appears to enjoy instigating mild court- room pyrotechnics. A periodic word from Hie bench, however, and he subsides, muttering small-boy sarcasm Perry Mason with egg on his face. In his absence, the child is bandied about among claimants and lawyers. The father's advo- cate claims the boy has been left for long periods in the home of his paternal grandpar- ents, where the father is now living. Attention is called to the mother's emotional problems and boy friend. Witnesses are called to ex- pound. The mother silently waits her turn, then tells of heated argu- ments, her husband's emotional problems and his unreasonable devotion to cycles and snow- mobiles. The child had only been left so she "could get sorted She is living with her girl- friend, who act as sitter while the mother upgrades her work skills in the fall. "I love my son very she says. On the judge rests Die respon- sibility of deciding the fate of the child. He makes his decision. "His parents appear to be Ir- reparably separated. My con- cern is for the child, of course. Where he is now appears to bo a stable home. The mother has an uphill climb to improve her education. "It seems to me the child's interests are best served by leaving him with his father." A woman approaches the bench, asking for maintenance for her tliree children and the one that's due in three or four moyhs. She has been separated about one month, she explains to the court. The judge Is presented with Exhibits 1, 2 and 3 a marri- age certificate and two birtli certificates. Why the separation, the wo- man is asked?
