LOVE THEORY TOO
MUCH FOR WIFE
.Woman Asking Separation
Swears Doctor Had Many
Soulmates, But Held Him
NEW TOnK, Oct. 28.-Mrs. Mary
Caspc's husband, Dr. Abrntn, Caspe, Is
an advanced thinker, according to his
own point of view, If his wife's com
plaint In a separation suit Is In lino
Ho Is n member of the Socialist party,
but Mrs. Cnspo asserts she did not ob
ject to the vlowa lip entertained until he
began to advocate freo love In his own
homo, "contending that men aro not
bound by any legal restraint from loving
nnd living with more than ,ono woman
at the same time, that It wus altogether
proper for a married man to live with
other women if ho loved them."
Mrs. Caspe, who lives at CO Eat 108th
street, says that her husband explained
that to live with other women than his
wlfo was at all times proper and moral
for a married man so long ns It was
"snnetloncd by love."
Incidentally, Mrs. Caspe says that al
though her husband has an Income of
moro than 15000 per annum, ho appears
to feel no obligation toward his children
and her. Sho says sho pleaded with him
to discard his theories, but that her
pleadings did not avail.
HAD OTHER TVIVES.
"Within a short tlmo," sho says, "ho
began openly to consort with women of
tho samo framo of mtnd, both married
and unmarried, and began to negloct the
family, staying away sometimes until 4
a. m. and sometimes never coming home.
I went to his ofllcc once and found him
entertaining his soul mates, as ho In
troduced them, whom ho loved. Ho
frankly acknowledged to me, In the pres
enco of our children, that ho loved and
lived with a Mrs. Hoffman and Mrs.
Fabrlcant and that ho no longer loved
me. Ho held himself altogether blameless
In loving theso other women."
The plaintiff states that when she loft
her husband with her children ho quit
contributing toward her expenses, stat
ing that he had not promised to support
her when ho married hor.
Doctor Caspo denies his wlfo's allega
tion, and says the European conflict haH
Injured his practice, which wob of tho
"old school" order, nnd that it also suf
fered as tho result of change of neighbor
hood conditions on tho East Bide.
"The practice of tho 'old school' phy
sicians fell off, ho says, "and a lot of
young men with new and highly unpro
fessional mcinoas came Into tho neigh
borhood nnd took tho practice away,
"Tho Court undoubtedly knows," con
tinued Doctor Caspo, "that Socialists are
as good family men as men of any other
political belief, and certainly there Is no
necessary connection between a man being
a Socialist and his strict observance of

NEW YORK, Oct. 2S,-American Ulds

"Sing, danco and bo merry, for tomor
row we die," Is tho motto of Lucille Cav
anaugh, premiere danseuso of the "Whirl
of tho World" company. In her opinion
i if. . . 0Ulcr occupation which Is so
healthful as "tripping tho light fantas
tic' ns sho terms It.
Questioned ns to how the art might bo
mastered, the dainty llttlo dancer replied:
it cannot bo mastered by some not
oven if they could practice for centuries.
Dancers aro bom, but thnt has been said
bororo. Nevertheless, tho fact remains
that you can tell a 'made' dancer the
mlrmto you seo ono-thero Is on Indo
scribablo something that gives them
away, either a trace of tho 'gaucho' or
a solf-consclousncss which shows that
tnoy aro not really first-class nrtlsts. A
really truly dancer can often bo detect
ed when a child skips about tho streot
t0t" music of a hand organ."
tr. hi 'L lah0 many ycars of training
i.o " ouw- sno was asked.
m. mos- yeSl" was tho reply.
There is no limit but ago to tho amount
of Improvement possible to a dancer.
There Is not, or never was, a dancer who
was perfect; some think thoy aro perfect
because they recelvo praise and applause,
but they could become still more grace
ful if they tried."
PRACTICE BEFORE MIRROR.
Miss Cavanaugh then went on to de
scribe the methods she follows In Im
proving her dancing. She told of weary
hours spent In front of tho mirror, where
each movement of tho dance Is carefully
studied- of hour after hour of rehearsing
with a partner, so that each step becomes
so automatic that there is no danger of
confusion: for, sho says, until ono knows
an pnnses or tno dance In detail as well
as Just exactly how tho partner does
them there Is no hope of performing well.
"It Is just like memorizing a poem," sha
said: "after you have repeated It over
and over again for hours and hours, you
finally get to know It so well that it is
Just part of you; you never have to atop
to think of what Is coming next."
Asked her opinion of the modern popu
lar dances, she replied:
"They are, after all. Just stago steps
simplified. I have never seen ono of the
so-cnlled 'new dances' that I did not
recognize as taken from some staco aten
which has been known for years. Of
couisc, they aro modified and, in somo
oases, enlorged upon, so that most people
wouldn't recognize them, but that Is what
thoy are JuFt tho same."
GLIDING BRINGS HAPPINESS.
"Do you approve of them?" she was
"Of course I do," she laughed; "I
approve of all dancing. I Just love It
myself, nnd It makes mo so happy that
I am glad when I see that other peoplo
can be made happy that way. Sometimes
when I am walking along tho street and
I hear good muBlo I Just can't resist the
temptation to dancj It just makes me so
overwhelmingly happy that I don't care
what people may think."
"Good music, then, Is one of the es
sentials?" "Yes, Indeed. A person can't dance
freely fr she doesn't enter Into the spirit
of the music and If she doesn't feel con
fidence in tho conductor: that Is why so
many rehearsals are necessary before a
musical comedy can bo staged. Good
music Is nn inspiration to any dancer and
accounts for the success o'f mnny shows
that Mould have failed miserably with
"Costume"! also have nn effect on danc
ing. It takes a very good dancer, Indeed,
to perform welt In one of tho long, filmy
gowns thnt float In th air. That Is al
most an nrt In Itself, for many dancers
rtho can do well enough In tho ballet
skirt aro hopelessly lost when they try
to maneuver in '.ne of the 'Greek'
CLINGING GOWNS APPROPRIATE.
"Tho most beautiful costume of all. In
my opinion, Is tho dress of tho clinging
plaited type, but I don't like them when
they have sleeves.
"Dancing keeps me in good health. I
am never 111, and It Is becauso I got
plenty of exorcise In dancing nnd am
careful about what I eat. I never touch
meat In summer nnd never eat potatoes.
I play golf nnd take long walks whenever
possible, but above nil I keep happy, and
that Is, I think, the real keynote to
health, for I nm Just bubbling over with

There are In tho neighborhood of BO

those preserved Rnd made Into wine.
nrnwern rinelAM 1.000.000 bushels of the
