COURT HEARING RECALLED Member of Class Recently Up on a Charge of Having Beaten His Wife. A prominent member of the Bible clfiss presided over by John I). Rockefeller, jr., ?it ?he Fifth Avenue Baptist Church wa recer.tly haled into a police cour* on the ch-.rge of beating his wife. Yesterday at the meeting of the Rockefeller clasa. held in the Sunday school room of the church, it was announced that a series of fifteen belt-res, designated as "special," would be ghen for the lieneflt of the class, begln r.ii*?-,' on February 1?~. These lectures will be grouped under the general head "On Facts Necessary To Be Known About En? gagement and Marriage.'' The man who passed around the printed announcements regarding the lectures made no comment on the particular significance of such a series, following so sharply on ? he heels of the police court appearance O? one of the Bible class members for wife beating. No spoken word was dropped b-, any member of the class that would gli- an indication of the impression cre? ated by the announcement. Many of* the ?Sunday school scholars, however, wore ex ir???lve grins, which, though silent, spoke louder than words. It could not be learned last night whether the series of lectures Is relied upon to cor rect the domestic manners of such of the ??lass as are married or soon expect to be, but th? fact that one of the class had only recently faced a magistrate on the com? plaint of his wife still lingered In the minds of many. < As an instance of the broad instructive Qualities embraced In the series, some of the titles of the lectures are enlightening. One of the talks will be called 'The Eco? nomical Basis of Marriage; What It Coats." Another will deal with the problem, "What a Man's Income Should Be; Rents In New York." Still another talk will deal with the query, "What Dangers Face Him If He Marries with Only Enough for One?" No word Is said as to what dangers the wife must face under similar circumstances; but then, as it Is pointed out, these lectures are exclusively for men. A lecture that promises to be of exceed? ing Interest has to do with "What Things Has a Wife a Right to Demand of the Mon?" Nothing is said here, either, as to whether the wife has the right, to demand that her husband shall not beat her. A talk that holds forth great promise to the members of the class, and one which will be eagerly listened to, no doubt, will h.T.e to do with the answer to the QOee? tlon. "Why the Mom? Shoulil I'.c Away from Relatives, if Possible." Many of the Sunday school students feel that they could answer the question in the wo-ds, "Mcther ln-law," but they will be attentive listen? ers, nevertheleea In discussing marriage with his Bible class on one occasion, John D. Rockefeller, Jr.. said: "?'et married M soon as possible, hut be sur?? to get a wife who shares your -lews of life. A young man should take great care In choosing n wife, as she can make or mar his career." i Second Annual Exhibition rjm Paintings OLD MASTERS AT THK V. G.
