Hon filed a few days ago by Mrs.
IBlanca Errazuris de Saulles against
tier husband, John L?. de Saulles. The
allegations in that suit have not been
made public, but along the Great
White Way it is reported that Mr. de
Saulles permitted himself to become
interested in two dancers whose
frolicsome feet at midnight revels
have set the "natives" a whirl.
It is no little thing, this charge
against "Jack" de Saulles. former
Yale quarterback, who was appointed
minister to Uruguay, but declined
the post, for Senora Blanca was

Chilians are more than offended;
they are dazed. They thought they
knew something about America and
something about Americans, and now
they are wondering, they are scratching
their puzzled heads and asking
"What does an American want?"

They cannot believe that she has

won her. And of all the unbelievable

charge that lie became enamored of
