MISS fCORMICK
- MAY NO! BE WED.
UNTIL NEXT APRIL
' Mother and Father Expected
, to Compromise Girl, of
Age Then.
ALL TURNED HIM DOWN
- New Petition to Be Virtual Re
quest for Injunction Against
Marriage,
CHICAGO; June 2. Mrs, Edith
; Rockefeller McCormlck'a sudden de
cision not to fllo the petition asking
that a restraining order be Issued
against the marriage of Mathllde Mc
Cormlck to Max Oeer is said to bo a
. move to postpone the Issue for a short
time. Fending a search for further
legal support for the court action de
sired by Mrs. McCormlck her attor-
neya aro said to have been Instructed
to learn wht concessions Mr. McCor
mlck will make and to dicker with his
lawyer to that end.
Since Mathllde will be eighteen
years old and of legal age April 8,
1928, It Is thought that Mr. McCor
mlck mav atrree to forbid the mar
rlage until after that time wrien
Mathllde will be free from the control
of either her mother or father.
If Mr. McCormlck agrees to take
this action It Is thought that his
former wife will withdraw her court
action to prevent the marriage since
a postponement until after that date
wuold be al lshe could hope to obtain
even If she were successful.
Mathllde McCormlck Is only one of
several Americanfhelresses whose for
tunes have been sought by Max Oser,
Swiss riding master, Charles S. Cutt
ing, attorney for Mrs. Edith Rocke
feller McCormlck, the girl's mother,
declared to-day.
According to Mc. Cutting, several
other 'rich American girls have been
the" targets of Oser'a attentions, but
have eluded his fortune-hunting wijes.
The seventeen - year - old grand-
daughter of John D. Rockefeller,
Mr. Cutting says, was the first to
succumb to the extent of promising
to marry him.
'I understand this Is ndt the first
time Oser has tried to marry a rich
American girl," said Mr. Cutting.
He seems to have tried before to
make use of the opportunities af
forded by the fact that many society
people were members of his riding
scnooi.
i "He evidently thjnks now that he
has succeeded, for he has sold his
riding school? His other means of
livelihood seems to be $8,000 in cash
and aa assured income of $100 a
montn. this would hardly be suffi
cient to support Miss McCormlck, and
makes It plain that he is counting on
ner money to maintain them both."
Convinced that Oser is a fortune-
hunter whose sole object In marrying
Miss McCormlck Is to attach himself
to the fortune she may inherit from
John D. Rockefeller, the attorney
yam, nirs. 'Mcuormlck considered It
her duty as a mother to carry her
ngni to tne Probate Court.
OSER KIN TO AID
MRS. McCORMICK
Cut Off Money, He Says,
and See How Long He
Ljoves Mathilde.
CHICAGO, June 2, Emil Burge,
Chicago cousin of Max Oser, said to
day he was ready to aid Mrs. McCor
mtck in the battle In Probate Court
she has waged on her divorced hus
band, Harold F. McCormick, Ma
thllde's guardian, who favors the mar
riage. "If she's looking for evidence to In
duce the court to restrain McCormlck
"from allowing the marriage of Max
and Mathilde, I'll give her plenty,"
he said.
"Let Mathllde's relatives cut off her
Interltance t and allowance and see
how much longer Max loves her."
Cousin Emll laughed when he told
of Max's "spirited horses." "To read
what he Bays to the newupapers,
you'd think he had a string ot horses
! iiko .-uorvicn, Man o- war and Dan
) Patch," he said. "But you should
seo 'em."
The cousin said It was altogether
unnecessary for Charles Cutting, at
torney for Mrs. McCormlck, to search
Europe for evidence against Oser.
"I'll ndvlso him that I'll bo a. most
willing witness," he said.

176 Families Win Test Case
But Agree to 35 Per
Cent. Raise.
The Appellate Division of the Su
preme Court to-day upheld tenants
in an action for increased rent in two
large apartment houses yovcrlng the
blocks fronting on Riverside Drive,
between 141st and 142nd Streets.
There are 176 tenants In these
buildings. One hundred and four re
fused to sign new leases at the be
hest of representatives of the Ala
bama Holding Corporation, which
owns the buildings. A test suit was
brought by I.eo F. Coni-oy and four
teen other tenants.
In the Municipal Court the land
lord won. In the Appellate Term it
was decided that the landlord's de
mands were excessive, but an in
crease of ,15 per cent., which the
tenants were willing to pay, was al
lowed. The Appellate' Division to-day sets
forth that it allows the 35 per cent,
only because the tenants' have ex
pressed a willingness to pay It and
denies the landlord's appeal from the
Judgment of the Appellate Term.

t TfMTlirmlft.
WASHINGTON, June 2. Advisability
of handicapping red-headed boys In the
freckles contest being staged by the
Wahlngton Dally News was considered
to-day. A local physician told the
News that red-headed boys have the
a.dvantage, because their skin tifkes on
a pigment color more rapidly than
others, rigment color means freckles,
he said. A handicap ot six freckles to
the inch between the nose -and neck
was suggested.
Girls have been barred from the
contest for fear of the wrath of mothers
who do not want the beauty or their
daughters marred through the raising
of freckles.

Stop Paying, Now That
She Is Wed.
Supreme Court Justice Wasservogel

of Armour Ferguson to have the court
annul alimony "he Is compelled to pay
his wife under the decree of absolute
divorce granted her last November.
Although the amount of alimony was
not made public. It is understood to
be $5,000, a year.
In asking that the alimony award bo

the court's attention to the fact that
Mrs. Ferguson was married to Will
lam G. McAdoo.Jr., in the Municipal
Building May 22, and now Is on her
honeymoon. Counsel for the former
Mrs. Ferguson objected to the motion
on the grounds that Ferguson himself
was In court with "unclean hands,"
as he remarried in Connecticut three
days prior to his divorced wife's wed
ding to young McAdoo.
The former Mrs. Ferguson was Miss
Molly Tackaberry of England, ,an ait
1st. She and Ferguson met In 1913
at an art school In Lexington Avenue.
Miss Tackaberry was a Roman Cath
olic and the marriage was performed
in February, 19H, at the home of the
bride's aunt, Mrs. Imre Josika Hctc
zeg. No. 28 West 10th Street.
They went to llvo with Ferguson's
mother at her country home, The
Monastery, at Huntington, I., one
of tho show places ot the North
Shore. In tho winter the Fergusons
wejo prominent figures at Palm
Beach, where Ferguson took up au
tomobile racing nsn Npnrt and won
several Important races.
.Tho nnmo of tho co-rcspondent In
the Fergusons' divorce wa3 not given.'
She was described merely as an "un
known woman." Tho sccno of her
allegcd-misconduct with Ferguson was
il houseboat owned by his mother.
