A peculiar matrimonial tangle was
before Judge Sabath in the court of
domestic relations yesterday when
Mrs. Michael Perclsbosco, 3619 Went
worth av., asked the court to force
Michael to support her, charged that
he has lately married a girl of 18 and
revealed that he is 32 -while she is
52 and his aunt, the pair having gone
to Indiana nine years ago to be mar
ried. Mrs. Michael claimed Tier nephew
husband had raised'a loan of $250 on
some property she owned, with which
he furnished a barber shop for him
self and now had turned from her
for a younger girl
Judge Sabath ruled that the mar
riage was not a valid one and dis
missed the defendant
Mrs. Nicholas Cannon, 1828 Ham
mond St., found her way into court
early in her matrimonial life. She is
just 17 and has been married 7
months. She charged that her hus
band was cross with her and would
not let her live with her mother, and
that when she wanted to go to a
nickel show she either had to steal
the money out of the food money or'
out of his pocket.
Cannon said he was saving to take
his girl-wife to his home In Philadel
phia, but Judge Sabath prevailed
upon him to move with the girl to her
mother's home.
Mrs. Albert Yascureski appeared in
court to testify against her husband
for non-support with a five-day-old
baby in her arms. She admitted she
had to borrow carfare to' come to
Judge Sabath ordered efforts made
to get Yascureski a job, and the Ju
nior Cheer league furnished imme
diate relief to Mrs. Yascureski.
James Davenport, 1830 Park av.,
jartth a complexion like a starless
night, was in court, but his wife Lena,
who charged he had abandoned her,
was not James, said he just "didn't
inend to suppoht that woman, no
how as she had a" fellow that had a
handsomer physique than him and
that fellow could suppoht her." The
case against James was dismissed
when he brought witnesses to sup
port his allegations that Lena had
spurned him for his rival

The proposed Ft Sheridan civilian
military training camp is in a sad
plight. Looks like it is going to prove
'a fizzle and if it does the loop sheets,
especially the Trib, will have to eat
a large mess of humble pie.
Request of a local army official
upon Washington for camp parapher
nalia brought the reply that more in
terest will have to be shown or no
school will be started.
When the camp was planned the
loop sheets all predicted 500 enlist
ments in a few days' time. But the
total to date is but 215.
"Send substitutes to camp If you
can't go," says Trib today in urging
business men fo save the camp. The
Trib suggests that business men who
lack sufficient patriotism to do a
month's work in learning how to
fight for Old Glory pay $40 to send
a recruit in their place. "If you can't
afford the $40, why not take a $5 or
$20 share In one rookie," says the
Trib. ,
If this plan goes through, look out
for some resignations. It was an
nounced when the camp was plan
ned that it was to be "exclusive," and
the blue stocking boys are not going
to mix with any common university
grads who have to have their way
paid. It would be getting away from
one purpose of the camp, which is to
train the scions of big business in
militarism so as "to give them a firm
er advantage over the common herd.
