LAWYER'S FORCE PLAN DOES
NOT APPEAL TO JUDGE
A scheme to force unwilling wives
to return to their deserted husbands
was presented yesterday by the law
yer for John Gozkowski, 2529 Ash
land av., in the court ofaomestic re
lations. The wife of Gozkowski said
John owns 12 flats which she has
helped him buy by taking in washing
and going out working by the day, as
John's wage was never over $2.25 a
day. She says John now lives on his
income, which is about $200 a month,
and after he had thrown her across
the stove 'and shown other little evi

took their child and left him.

The poets have sung
In every known tongue
Of sweethearts and love's youthful
In verse that is glad

But no-one takes time
To pound out a rhyme
On the love of a husband and wife.
