Husband is President of Her Father's Liberty National Bank in New York.

The New York American today says that Mrs. Marjorie Durant Daniel, daughter of William C. Durant, wealthy financier is in Nevada establishing residence with the intention of suing for a divorce.  Her husband, Robert W. Daniel, is president of her father’s Liberty National Bank.

Mr. Durant, the American says, confirmed the reports that his daughter was there for a divorce, describing the case as “one of those unfortunate matters that can’t be helped.”  He said his business relations with his son-in-law would "go on as usual."

Daniel is a great-grand-grandson of Edward Randolph, first attorney general of the United States.  He and Miss Durant were married in 1923.  They have a girl, three and a half years old.

This is his second matrimonial adventure.  His first was Mrs. Mary Eloise Hughes Smith, one of the widows of the Titanic disaster.
