likely it may mean grave compli

IF THEY HAD TO EARN IT
| MRS. HEYE, WHO "NKKDS" «78,000 A YKAR TO SVI'POIIT HER
-1 SULF AND TWO LITTLE CHILDREN.
Mrs. Blanche A. W. Heye, who startled New York by asking
$78,000 a year alimony when she sought a divorce from husband,
George G. Heye, a banker, has just ob-
tamed her final decree and with it an al
lowance of $15,000 a year for herself end
$25,000 annually for the support of her
two children.
Following this award Mrs. Heye's sis
ter, Miss Lottie Williams, gave a jollifica
tion which the New York papers have de-
Bcribed as a divorce party, but which Miss
Williams says were merely a birthday party.
Whatever it was—guests at the feast re
ported that all "went merry as a marriage
bell" and a marriage bell without a crack
In it, at that!
When Mrs. Heye made her first ap
plication for the fabulous sum of $78,000
a year as suitable to her "station In life"
she and other New York women with
slmjkir tastes were scored by Justice As
pinwall, who heard the plea and fixed tem
porary alimony at $15,000.
"Half of the society women of
New York live at too high a rate,"
the Judge declared at that time.
"They are drinking high balls and
smoking clgurets in fashionable res*
taurants or riding around in automo
biles with poodle dogs when they
should be attending to their homes
and husbands.' The phrase 'station In
life' may read well in a modern
inn <•!. bat many a woman never had
any station in life till she married a
wealthy man. Mrs. Heye had a good
thing and she lost it. I shall not
grant 978,000 a year to any woman."
Mrs. Heye does not hesitate to say
'' An •' excellent argu
ment from Mrs. Heye's
standpoint, but some

story of the difficulty

that she considers the $78,000 she asked
(or —and did not get—a moderate allowance.
A well-dressed woman needs at least $10,000 a year to dress
on, she explained. If a woman dines out five nights a week—and
any woman in society Is liable to tfo thnt —she must have at least
eight evening gowns for a season. If iihs is careful she can Ret
through the year with 12 hats, ranging In price from $5 to $60
apiece. She must spend $300 a year for shoes If she expects to
appear well-shod. Then there are furs—they must either be very
expensive, sable, sealskin or broadtail; or they must be renewed every
two years. Then In the list of general expenses come the mainte
nance of two automobiles, garage charges, salaries of two chauf
feurs and a footman and the very considerable Item of keeping
these men well-dressed. Then there Is the children's education, la
cluding dancing and swimming classes, courses in language, riding
lessons and elocution, so their voices will be attractive and properly
pitched. Why, the children's toys cost $60 a month, but, of course,
