Harry Probably no one but Mi *. Thaw. Sr. and her lawyer, Col. Franklin Bartlett know really what course will be followed but the general impression is that th^ mother will shortly seek appointment as ri ardiaxi • of her soni that she will try to secure his transfer to some asylum less ilgld In its discipline; that she will appeal from Justice Morschauser'a decision if this concession is refused and that In any event she will again seek his release about a year hence. To what extent financial considerations weighed with Mrs. Evelyn Thaw In dis missing her marriage annulment suit yes terday Is perhaps even a question to Mrs Thaw. Sr. Col. Bartlett's statement that the son's wife Is receiving an allowance of 11,000 monthly was something of a sur prise to the family's friends and the rumor la current that the young woman have given considerable regard to ma» warnings that she must consider her inether-ln-law's wishes or risk the loss of her income. Prejudicial lo Thaw. aapnably clear, the Thaw's ac qialntanccs\euy. that the family must have considered it prejudgial to Harry's Interests to have his wife seeking a mar riage annulment on grounds of insanity at a time when he is seeking freedom from an asylum.
