BY NIXOLA GREELEY-SM1TH
New York, Dec 1. Albert Gallatin
Wheeler, Jr., broker, banker and
scion of one of New York's oldest
families, lias begun a suit for abso
lute divorce against his wife, Claudia
Carlstedt Wheeler, known and toast
ed along Broadway 17 years ago as
"the girl in the red tights," -
For the purpose of filing a counter
suit the ever-beautiful Claudia has
just returned from England, where
she says she recruited 175,444 men
for the British army by a song she
sang in the English "halls." .
As we sat in her room at the Hotel
McAlpin the other day she told me
just how and why a romance which
she once described as a "a love that
is more than love" had gradually
but permanently congealed to ice.
"It is true that I loved Albert1
Wheeler, Jr., with a love that was J.
more than love," she said, her big'
brown eyes filling with -tears.
"And what kind of love is that?"1
