ADVENTURES OF MR. MOUSE
Here cones HR Cd1S 7 BJZ0, g e?ac 1 J v LOOKtAJ6- f&Z & GAJ- At FA7iM3. r d HIS CAUSE FOR KICK New York, March 17. Because he had to cook, his own meals and all that time suffered from indigestion Julius Kraus asked the court to re cuse ahmony to his wife. THE NEWSPAPER LINE-UP The newspaper line-up in the local campaign is interesting. The News, Herald, Examiner and American are playing the Sullivan-Sweitzer game, the Post is supporting Thompson, the Journal leans toward Thompson and the Tnb is feeling its way. If it sees there is a good chance to put Thompson over it will probably swing that way, so as to put one over on the Herald and Examiner. Roger Sullivan, Victor P. Lawson and James Keeley are close friends and the News is generally lined up with the traction interests. Keeley's paper is closely connected with the Sam Insull interests. Hearst has evi dently formed an alliance with Sulli van. What the newspapers are doing doesn't always appear so plain in the editorial columns as in the alleged news reports of the campaign. The Sullivan-Sweitzer papers give Sweit zer the lead in their news stories and the Thompson papers play it the oth er way. The object is to influence readers without them knowing what Is happening to the thinker. Lawson -at the News is especially bitter toward Thompson. One reason aside from the traction connection of the News is a personal bitterness be cause two years ago Thompson in public speeches referred to Victor P. Lawson as a taxdodger and showed a tax check showing that Lawson paid somethingtover $14 on his ?1,500,000 mansion, and compared what Mil lionaire Lawson paid withwhat the owner of a small home paid. Nobody knows yet which way the Trib cat is going to jump. o o LEAPS FIVE FLOORS ALIVE New York, March 17--Miss The resa Nicholson, 50, of Little Neck, L. L, sister of John J.
