BY IDAH McGLONE GIBSON
Milwaukee, Wis., May 13J "Did
this woman, as far as you know,
wear male attire for imhioral pur-,
poses? Did you ever see her do, any
thing vulgar?" asked the judge in the
case of "disorderly conduct" brought
against Cora Anderson, who, until
last week, as Ralph Kerwinieo, had
worn men's clothes and posed as- a
man for thirteen years.
t "While m male attire how did she
act?" the judge continued.
"Like a PERFECT GENTLEMAN,"
was the policeman's answer, much
to the amusement of the spectators
who filled the police courtroom in
And this is the verdict of almost
every third man in the city who
knew Ralph Kerwinieo well and
never for a moment suspected that
-"he" was a woman.
