B. Travis, stale Auditor at f.anslng,
Mich., a eo-respondent In a divorce ao

Ines Kalns, Travis said hs was a
psy.-hlc sleuth, engaged In exploring
the unknown with Mrs. Kalns as to

Kalns got his divorce.
Travis's "seanees" occurred at L-.

In Lnslng, Mich., wwnere Mrs. Ksins
spent several months last summer. Mrs.
Fuller testled she saw Travis In Mrs.
Kalna's rooms on seral occasions.
w nenever I was near or suddenly
came upon them, said Mrs. Fuller, "Mr.
Travis either pretended to be going Into
a trance or coming out of one most al

"What Induces you to form that con

A whlsiier of "Hush, dear; he's In a

Travis and Mrs. Kalns together. Un-

"This Is typical of the appeals we are
receiving." Dr. Rucker said. "This let

The letter read :
"Kind Sir: Excuse me If I write
a few words, but I am almost heart
broken, as my only son, twenty-two
years old, has tuberculosis ot the
