Mother of Girl Who Commit
ted Suicide April 2 Named
In Amended Petition for
Mrs. Hellena G. Walker filed an
amended petition in her suit for di
vorce from Harvey D. Walker in
district court yesterday in which she
names Mrs. May Houltz as co-respondent
and gives names and dates
of her husBand's alleged associa
tions with Mrs. Hoaltz.
Mrs. Houltz is the mother of Mil
dred Houltz, pretty 16-year-old girl
who committed suicide pril 2, 1919,
at her home, leaving a note ad
dressed to her mother, admonishing
her to "lead a clean and happy life."
The coroner's inquest at that time
was sensational. Mr. Walker was
present with Mrs. Houltz.
The Walker home is at 2787 Capi
tol avenue 'and Mrs. Hoult lives
across the street at 114 North
Twenty-eighth avenue. Mr. Walk
er is a salesman for the Mid-West
Motor & Supply Co.
Mrs. Walker's amended petition,
filed through her attorney, Charles
Goss, states that she and her daugh
ters are church members and have
done everything possible to keep
Mr. Walker from his associations.
In spite of their efforts, says the
petition, he has consorted with
women of loose moral views and
dates are given as follows:
"October 25, 1918, Mr. Walker
was1 out with Mrs. May Houltz until
2 o'clock in the morning.
"December 31, 1918, he was with
other men and women at a wine
party until 3:30 o'clock in the rhorn
ing. -
"January 1, 1919, he was at Mrs.
Hoilltz's home until a late hour.
"January 4, 1919, he was at Mrs.
Houltz's home until midnight and
she accompanied him to the door in
negligee dress.
"March 29, 1919, he was with Mrs.
Houltz until 2 o'clock in the morn
ing. "March 30, 1919, he accompanied
her to Elmwood park and therte al
lowed her to use insulting language
toward Mrs. Walker and her daugh
ters. "April 2, 1919, he was with Mrs.
Houltz until midnight.
"April 4, 1919, he was with Mrs.
Houltz at a coroner's inquest and
was written up in the papers.
"May 7, 1919, he was holding
Mrs. Houltz on his lap on the front
"May 31, 1919, he accompanied
Mrs. Houltz to Lincoln."
These allegations are made by
Mrs. Walker in response to the mo
tion made by her husband that she
make her original petition for di
vorce more definite.
She says her husband makes $200
a month and that she herself has
no othef means of support than
keeping boarders. She is 55 years
