NEW YORK,
dolph Valentino and Pola
Negri- were not engaged, but
the famous moVie star refused
to deny the reported romance
because “it will help Pola,”
the New York Evening Jour
nal stated today.
‘ Disclosed By Doctor
“This startling disclosure,” the
newspaper continues, “was made
today despite Pole’s dash across
the continent to the bier of the
great screen lover, despite her
tearful collapse at the funeral,
despite her vow that ‘I can never
love again.*
“It was made by Dr. Sterling
C. Wyman, who was Miss Negri’s
constant attendant during her stay
in New York. Doctor Wyman
said these facts were given to
him by S. George Ullman, Valen

strangely enough, was among the
first to affirm public reports of
the engagement.
“Ullman told him, Doctor Wy

foundation for the talk of an en-

By Avwv

Breseale, a nurse, in
1923, might have some connec

Rev. Edward W. Hall and Mrs.
Eleanor Mills, was being run

in the Middlesex county hospital
during the sessions of the Somer

fused to indict Mrs. Frances S.
Hall, Carpender’s cousin. ,
Body Found in Creek
Both Mrs. Stevens and Carpender,
together with her brother, “Willie’’
Stevens, are now held for the mur

The girl’s body was discovered in
the shallow Water ot a creek a
month after she disappeared. x
The discovery followed a tele
phone call to the New Brunswick
police by a man' who said a gttrs
body was lying in the water. This
man’s identity was never learned.
There were certain mysterious
features about Miss BreauUe a
