PAULSON FIGHTS FOR ADOPTED
CHILDREN WHILE WIFE DIES
While his wife was dying at the
County Hospital yesterday, William
A. Paulsen, 3716 Lake avenue, a
former banker, stood in the Juvenile
Court, charging her with drunken'
ness, and refusing to do anything to
ward the support of their two adopt
ed children unless they were taken
from Mrs. Paulsen's control and put
entirely in his possession.
The children were brought into the
court by the Anti-Cruelty Society,
who charged they were starving un
der the care of Paulsen's former
chauffeur, Joseph Gonder, 362 East
Mrs. Paulsen's lawyer claimed that
Paulsen had not paid a cent of ali
mony since the order of the court
that he should pay $100 a month in
Paulsen, in his own defense, stated
that Paul Gonder had locked him out
of his home at the order of Mrs.
Paulsen; that. thereafter had collect
ed rent on the property and that he
had received .the permission of the
court to credit that $600 on alimony.
He also stated she had an equity
in the property to dispose of, and he
had heard she got $1,000 for it. Her
lawyer stated she had received $100.
Paul Conder, who has been the
support of Mrs. Paulsen and the two
children since 1911, said he paid Mrs.
Paulsen $7 a week for his board and
that he had lent her money which
she had agreed to return to him when
she could get her alimony..
Mrs. Paulsen was taken to the
County Hospital two weeks ago and
the children have 1een in the care
of Mrs. Quinlan, who has a flat in
the building at 362 East Thirtieth
street, and who is a ward of the Juve
nile Court, receiving a mother's pen

Judge Pomeroy ruled that Paulsen
should pay Mrs. Quinlan for the
board of the two children, but Paul
sen stated positively that he would
not pay one cent until he cpuld take
the children-away from Mrs. Paulsen
and Joseph Gonder.
Judge Pomeroy then postponed the
hearing until August 20, in order that
Mrs. Paulsen might be present and'
the matter decided at that time.
