TZ y"Good Morning, Judge" 7,V1 Human Interest Stories of Police Court Happenings. By RUDOLPH PERKINS Two Extreme* Meet. On? day a Ford and a Pierce-Arrow had a dispute. The Ford argued that what it lacked in quality it made up in quantity and popularity. The Fierce-Arrow, being: a toy of the man. disdained to refute this ar gument. The Ford got peeved and bumped it. breaking the windshield and a fender. The argument took place on Fifth street northwest, near L street, with Hillman Allen as the skipper of the Ford. "Mah foot slipped," explained Allen. "He was doin* twenty-five miles an hour," said the driver of the P-A. "but he sounded like he was doin' sixty." Allen said the street was a little slippery and his car. being rather clumsy on its feet, skidded. If he had thought quick enough he could have jumped out and held the car and prevented the damage. As it was. he didn't, and the court fined him $40. The Ford wasn't even scratched. Another Armlntfee la Signed. Right after dinner Christmas day, a high-brow and a low-brow got togeth er and began an argument about who started the war. Along came a little guy, with no brow at all, who was mighty inter ested in knowing who finished It And so another war was started. The low-brow landed on the high brow's brow and that gentleman dreamt that he dwelt in marble halls. The fellow with no brow jumped through the window, taking the sash with him. To all accounts he is still running. "Ah has no eddication." Ed Morse told the court, "but Ah has some muscle in mah right arm en wen day guy wot knows it all got sassy wid me Ah done wot any man would do." Ed was the only one of the trio arrested. He told the court that the fight started when the learned one made a sarcastic remark about his brains. The high-brow has a bump on his brow. He was willing, however, since Ed apologized, that the court place him on probation. It was done. Queer Ta*te. Some people pick out mighty queer >laces to get into trouble. For instance, take the case of Flor ?nce Green. She picked out an un lertaker's parlor. She was discovered in said parlor at \ o'clock Christmas morning. She was talking at the top of her voice urith some unidentified person. _ A cop, four blocks away, heard her. Fie ran up, expecting to see the un lertaker struggling with a ghost. But he saw only Florence, sitting >n a bench, having one great time. "What are you doing in here?" isked Mister Cop. "Oh. jes' killln' time/* answered ?lore nee. "Sounds like you were getting dlled," said the cop. "Dis is a free country. Ah ?kin ?oiler all Ah wants ter," announced Horence. "All right," said the cop. "but you an finish hollering up in No. 7 pre inct." The oourt never did* find out the reason for the disturbance. Florence found out how much it cost her. It was $10. A Hard Gay* This. Holding a razor to a policeman's throat isn't stylish this year. Ask John Taylor. He did it. He was being placed under arrest at the time by Policeman Fitzgerald. It seems he was accused of beating up a woman. To scare the cop out of arrest ing him, John tickled Fitzgerald's throat with a very sharp razor. The cop wiggled away. John ran. The cop fired five shots, but John passed all five of the bullets. He was nabbed a little later on in the day by Fitzgerald. Never in his life was Fitz so glad to arrest anyone. To cap the climax, John showed he was a poor loser. He squealed just like a German who has lost two bits in a pinochle game. The court soaked him fifteen months, twelve for the razor play and three months for beating the woman. Williams Would Send Ambassador to Peru Senator Williams yesterday intro duced a bill authorizing the appoint ment of an American Ambassador to Peru at a salary of 117,500 a year. .The bill was referred to the Foreign Relations Committee. DIVORCE SUITS HALF AND HALF; ? i Records Show Absolute < Separation Asked for > By Sexes Alike. J Washington mem are not less moral than women, but infinitely harder to live with. If the record of the divorce suits (lied during the past year Is an indication of the general situation in the Dis trict Practically the same num ber of men and women have asked for absolute divorce since the first of January, suggesting that the graver offense which constitutes grounds for absolute divorce un der the District law is as prevalent among women as among men, un- , less aj> may possibly be the case, women are more ready to forgive and forget than their husbands. Sixty-one men and sixty-six women, have fled suits for absolute di- ! vorce. W tmri Seek Limited Divorce. Women have asked, however, for | more than five times as many limit ed divorces as men In the Diatrict, and thirty-three wives have sued | their husbands for separate main- I tenance. Limited divorces during, the past year have been asked on , account of alleged cruelty, deser- , tlon, nonsupport, trouble with j mothers-in-law. Incompatibility or j temper, and a thousand and one . other troubles which make for un- K happiness in the home. a It would seem that when men wish j e to be separated from their wives they I c are not satisfied with half measures, j s Only fourteen men sued for limited 11 divorce this year, as compared with I the seventy-eight women who asked a for less than their complete freedom, i Separation Salts Decreasing. | The increase in the population of the ? National Capital since tho war has f not brought with It a corresponding r Increase In the number of divorce f suits filed, as it has in the number of t marriage licenses Issued. Perhaps the t war .has separated so many couples I a that the number living together in s Washington has remained about th? l same. Divorce, annulment of mar- ? riage. and separate maintenance suits t so far this year total 271, while the c figures for the two preceding years ( are 287 and 276. Of this year's total. 185 suits were filed by women and S6. less than half as many, by men.

Luxemburg Merchants Denounce Hun Treaty The Chamber of Deputies of Lux emburg has endorsed a proposal of: the foreign minister to denounce! the commercial treaty with Ger many and assume new economic agreements with France and Bel gium. Luxemburg officials state that Germany violated all agree ments during the war and that in the future the state must look to France and Belgium for financial and trade support. Officials pointed out yesterday that should this policy be adopted it will give to France and Belgium another strong buffer state between their boundrles and Germany. i I i i When Thieves Fall Out.

Those who remem- j < >er Gaby Delys in "Stop, Look and j .listen" will also recall the import- | int part which Miss Stevens played1* n this production. With four years' experience in >urlesque it is not surprising- that , .flss Stevens has become a genuine , avorite of the jolly circuit and the ( nere announcement that she is the eatured star brings glad tidings to ; he burlesque fans. Her feature iong in "The Girls de I?ok.?" Fhow it the Gayety this week is the most leasonable selection that could have >een chosen. It's "Smiles" and Miss Stevens adds the smiles to illustrate ha song. She also sings the splen lid ballad, "I'm Sorry I Made You pry." Auto Turtle!; Four Killed. Bristol, Tenn., Dec. 26.?Charles Q. lodsey and his three small children vere killed last night when their au omobile turned turtle on the BlufP ?ity pike at Orway, Tenn. Their >odies were found early today. Smiles of Miss Stevens Well Suited to "Stailes" If ever there were smiles that fit Into the holiday spirit they are the smiles wfth which Evelyn Stevens , was endowed at birth for it is as natural for her to smile as it Is for % duck to swim. And so, naturai'y, she is " featured In the famovs "Smiles" song that has found a. place in everyone's heart. To say that Mi*s Stevens is a famous comedienne challenges a juery as to her accomplishments. PROOF OF USE GUIDES POLICE Liquor Imported for Home Consumption Will Not Be Disturbed. With th? Policy Court docket' ciowded almost to the limit with "bootleg" cases, the prosecuting au- j ihorities have decided to more ! closely investigate suspects before i trial in order not to unnecessarily -ad to the congestion now before ( the court. Persons who have brought liquor into Washington for their personal use and have proof of their asser- : tions, are not likely in the future j to be embarrassed by having to hunt ! a bondsman and appear in court, it, is c laimed. This decision is prac-4 tically a "right-about-face" on the j part of the authorities, as hereto- ! fore they have assumed that every one arrested In the raids on the | "bootleg specials" was guilty and must come to court to prove in-1 nocence. Th? usual court procedure is that a person i* presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. The decision. yesterday, it Is said, will clear the 'locket of many cases, probably j three-fourths of them.
