OF DWOBAK CASE
Woman Given Divorce and
Custody of the Child on
Grounds of Cruelty;
Boy Real Tragedy.
Judge Day in district court, when
passing judgment in the Dworak
divorce case, scored the introduction
of sordid details into this class of
trials, and he took occasion to ex
press his views on some of the
phases of compatibility in the do
He awarded Mrs. Marie Dworak
the decree of divorce which she
sought, together with $1,250 ali
mon, $30 per month for the sup
port of Arthur, the .5-year-old son,
and $150 for attorney's fees.
"I believe there has been suffi
cient evidence offered in this case
to establish cruelty,' the judge
said. "The testimony has been filled
with many small things which tend
ed to make married life unbear
able. One may be suing to death
by gnats. I don't think that
either knew the art of living to
gether, of making, self-sacrifices.
"Mr. Dworak was so absorbed in
his business that lie lost sight of
the sympathetic relations which
were due to his home. He held the
dollar so close to his eyes that he
did not see the finer things whnh
make for a happy homt. He work
ed 16 hours a day. Attention to
business is commendable, but neg
lects of home may constitue cruel
ty. Sawing wood and hauling ashes
are not forms of work which or
dinarily belong to the housewife.
Dworak was not justified in calling
his wife a child-murdtrer.
Boy Real Tragedy.
"The boy in this ruse is the real
tragedy. He is innocent of the un
fortunate situation. 1 will give the
child into the custody of the mother
until further order jf the court. I
want this child to grow up with the
love of both of its parents. If
either of you do or say anything
which might poison the mind of this
child. I will place the boy where
-neither of you will see it."
Outside of the court room the
lengthening shadows were marking
the advent of another Christmas eve,
when good tidings and peace on
earth are supposed to be dominant
in the human breast. The father
wanted to have his boy with him on
Christmas day at least part of the
day, but the mother announced that
the child was suffering from a cold,
whereupon the court advised that
good judgment should be used.

Victor Records for Next
Month Full of Patriotism
Patriotism of the universal kind,
is the keynote of the issue of Victor
records for January. Caruso, fired
with passion for his native land,
sings Garabaldi's hymn, while the
Zionist movement is interpreted by
Gluck and Zimbalist in the Zionist
hymn, "Hatikva," (Our Hope.) The
"Duet of the Flowers" from Madam
Butterfly, Fucinni's opera is given
by Frances Alda and Sophie Bras
lau, and Alda also appears in the
Aria of "The Sweetest Maiden"
from La Boheme. The Elman
String quartet interpret the witchery
of Tschaikowski's "Andante Canta
bile." John McCormick sings with
wonderful richness and fervor,
"When You Come Back," and Er
nestine Schumann-Heink renders
"Onward Christian Soldiers" with
wonderful fervency and inspiration.
"Dreaming of Home, Stveet Home,"
"When Tony Goes Over the Top,"
"The Americans Come," "I can
Always Find a Little Sunshine in
th Y. M. C. A.," are among the no
table vocal records.
If half the pleasure in dance mu
sic depends on the way it is played
you know the reason for the popu
larity of Joseph C. Smith's orches
tra, which, fortunately, all devotees
of the dance may enjoy by means of
Victor records. One of the latest
records that this orchestra has made
is "Mary" a fox-trot with a song
in it, which is equivalent to saying
a dance number with a kick in it. By
the time the singing starts you'll be
ready to sing, too it's the kind to
make you want to.
