The detectives, it was stated at the
district attorney's oflice, were to
stop at Palm Springs, Riverside
county, and ascertain whether Val

a hotel there last Tuesday night
upon their return from Maxicali.
"Intent" cf Valentino.
At the district attorney's office em
phasis was laid upon the "intent" of
"If he left this country a few days
after getting a divorce," said Mr.
McGelland, "was married in Mexico
and then returned to the benefit of
the laws here, he clearly intended
to evade the law here. It makes no
difference if the woman he married
nas left for the east."
The district attorney concurred in
the informal opinion recently given
by judges of the Los Angeles su
perior court that Miss Acker, from
whom Valentino obtained an inter
locutory decree of divorce January
10, 1922, would be his legal wife un
til the decree was made final a year
after that date.

.is no formal charge against him.
Federal Authorities Investigate.'
Federal authorities, however, have
followed suit in the matter of in
vestigations of the actor's marriage.
Frank M. Sturgig of the department
of justice said the department desired
to know whether, in bringing Miss
Hudnut back into California, where
he already had a legal wife, after the
ceremony at Mexicali, the actor had
violated the Mann white slave act.
Mr. Sturgis stated also the depart
ment was interested in the marriage
at Tiiunia. Lower California, October
3, 1921, of Frank Mayo, motion pic
ture actor, to Dagmar Godowsky,
daughter of Leopold Godowsky, the
pianist, four days after obtaining afl

investigation by federal agents.
Miss Hudnut is a motion picture
art director, known professionally as

San Francisco, May 19. Henry B.
Walthall, screen star who is playing
in vaudeville here, expresses no
worry as to the proposed investiga
tion into his marriage.
"There are absolutely no grounds
for an investigation into my second
marriage," he said last night. "I
married my first wife, Isabelle Fen

couldn't get along and separated. I
obtained a divorce at Chicago five
years ago. I was given a final de
