One-half u man'H salary or Income Is
about tho proportion he should pay in

according to the view taken by Justice
Gould, of the District Supremo Court,
In the cbbo of Mrs. Leon. 11. Helm
against Edgar E. Helm, a clerk In tho
office of the District Engineer's office.
Mrs. Helm wll be grnfrited a limited
divorce and alimony In the sum of VZ
a month one-half her husband's salary.

Tho court holds tlnel the charge of de

even though tho conduct of Mrs. Helm
was "annoying, exasperating, and bur.

ficient to Justify desertion hud been
committed by her.
Charges of ciutlty and drunkenness
preferred against Helm by his wife weie
not supported by ample proof In the
opinion of Justlro Gould, who points out
that two of the allegerl assuults ue-to
claimed to havo been committed threo

suit, and thut subsequently the couple

"The reform should not take the shape
of a dominant central kink, nor should
It be the creature of polltlis Kor this

other hand. It should supervise' and
rcgulato a co-operutivo mettns'of as

association, In the eommon Interest,
and require the banks to no)' all tho
cost of providing cupltul, sunolving gold
reserves, nnd Issuing notes under Its
elosv supervision. Thus the surplus
profits of note Issues and of discounts
would go to tint people of tho United
