their lover's game, watched them
while the man taught the lady to
float and the lady traced love mes
sages in the sands with her pink
toes. Then husband started the fuss.
But someone, more alert than the
others, found out that the lady's
name wqs Jane and that she had sued
her husband for divorce last Febru
ary. A nosy reporter, unkind enough
to intrude on Romance, trailed the
beautiful Jane through the dusty
court records. Finally in the superior
court records for February one case
attracted him. It was the case of
Jane Williamson vs. Chas. A. Wil
liamson. The bjJl charged that Char
lse was unkind to Jane, that he abus
ed her and didn't support as she
thought she should have been sup
ported. And finally the bill stated
that they were married in Laporte,
Ind., in Sept, 1912, when Jane was
20, and that out of their union had
been Dorn Robert Charles, whose
coming two years ago did not oil the
troubled waters in the Williamson
family.
A little way down in the records
the reporter found the cross bill of
Charles Williamson. Williamson's
charges did not picture Jane as an
abused and neglected wife and moth
er, tenderly guarding her baby while
papa frittered away his time and
money. In fact, Jane was pictured
as one who merely lived for the gay
things of life. And Charles further
exploded the wifely vision of Jane
by a blunt accusation that she had
improper relations with a man by
the name of Raymond Black.
Williamson could not be found by
the reporter. Neither could Jane.
But Mrs. Williamson, mother of
Charles, was found living at 2500 N.
Spaulding av. Over the telephone
she said that her son, an engraver,
had return home yesterday and told
her he had found Jane and another
man at the Jackson park bathing
beach and that he had taken a nunch
at the other man, but that the police
iiad prevented further damage.
Mrs. Williamson, the elder, did not
know the name of the other man.
Capt Lavin, boss of the Hyde Park
police station, who made an investi
gation of the fight, also says that he
doesn't.
