REMARKABLE .TRIANGLE CASE
CONFRONTS JUDGE FISHER
IN MORALS COURT
What would you do if you were a
judge and a woman refused to stop
uvuig with the man for whom she
left her husband while her two
daughters pleaded with you to let
their mother continue to live with
the other man in order that they
might have "a good home,?"
This problem is puzzling Judge
Harry Fisher, sitting in morals court.
Mrs. Mary Zyhka, 39, is accused
of deserting her husband, Jacob
Zynka, 49, to live' with "Stanley
Preszko, 29, at 1,502 W. Ohio sL Liv
ing with Mrs. Zynka are her four
children, three of them by her hus
band, Jessie, 17; Mary, 1'6, and Steve,
12, and a little girl, Paulina, whose
father isPreszko, the woman told
Zynka wants his wife to go back
with him. She won't go back.
"I don't see what wrong there is
in Mr. Preszko living with my moth
er," Mary, 16, told Judge Fisher in
broken English. Mary is an espe
cially good-looking girl. "He treats
her fine and -my father didn't He
gives us a good home and our father
"Will you return to your husband?"
Judge Fisher asked Mrs. Zynka.
"No," she answered.
"Will you leave this man?"
"No, I ,can't keep my family with
out help. I want my girls to be good
girls. For that I must haye help."
"Then I can do nothing but send
you and the man to the House of
Correction for a year each," said the
"If you send them, send us, too,"
suddenly stormed forth the quiet Jes
sie. ""We can't live on our wages of
$6 to $8 a week in a tailor shop, keep
the family and keep on being good
girls. If ,you send our mother there
you ought to send us too."
"Don't you think it's wrong for
your mother to be living with anoth
er man.?" asked Judge Jlsher.
''No," flashed back Jessie.
"You don't understand," sighed
"Well, we want our home, and
why should your law care who my
mother lives with?" said Ma'ry.
Judge Fisher continued the case
till next week.
