of State Senator Edward J. Forst, ac

Forst, mother of the official's four
children.
According to the allegation, Forst
was a devoted husband and father
until he was selected to go to Spring

There he met Miss Theresa Bolde, the
woman in the case. Mrs. Forst says
the pair now live in a cozy little 'love
cottage" built for two at Pistakee
Bay, Fox Lake. Recently, however,
according to Mrs. Forst, a visit from i
the stork has added a third member .
to the "love cottage." The senator's '
wife asks the custody of her four '
children, ranging in age from 12 to
20 years.
