WIDOW ASKS $10,000 FOR LOVE SWINDLE 
Charges She Found Fiance Had Wife
Who Wanted Her to Buy Divorce

She promised to marry him- then discovered he was married. That, with certain other elements of humiliation, is worth $10,000 to Mrs. Mary Krystanowicz. Her suit opened in circuit court yesterday and will be resumed today. 

The woman is 35, a widow, mother of five children and lives at 1108 Van Hook Street, The man she accused of obtaining her love under false pretense is Anton Trzaskowski, 45, of Red Hill, Pennsylvania. He boarded with her in Philadelphia and Camden after her husband died, she testified, proposed to her February 1, 1932, received her consent, postponed the ceremony several times, got $1650 from her to buy a car and a $60 suit and hat as the "wedding day" neared. 

Then he tried to borrow $2000 from her to buy a farm. This deal hadn't gone through, however, when she visited her admirer's Red Hill farm and asserts she discovered his wife there. But the "last straw," she said, was when the man's wife hit on the idea of obtaining a divorce with cash advanced by Mrs. Krystanowicz. 

WOMAN GIVEN $3000 HEART BALM VERDICT 
Camden Plaintiff Charges Penna. Farmer Said He Was Widower

A jury of 12 men after five hours and 15 minutes of 
deliberation yesterday awarded in Camden Circuit Court heart balm of $3000 to Mrs. Mary Krystanowich, 35, of 1108 Van Hook Street, against Anton Trzaskowski, 45, Red Hill, Pa. farmer. 

The trial began on June 15 before Judge Henry H. Eldredge. Mrs. Krystanowich declared Trzaskowskl was already married and the father of several children, but had represented himself to her as a widower. She said he boarded with her in Philadelphia and Camden after her husband died and that he proposed to her on February 1 of last year. After her acceptance, she said he kept postponing the ceremony and obtained a total of $1710 from her.

When she visited his farm in Red Hill, she testified, she found a woman there who said she was Trzaskowski's wife and offered to get a divorce if she would advance the cash. Mrs. Krystanowich is the mother of five children.

2 MEN SENT TO JAIL IN THEFT OF AUTO

Found guilty of stealing an automobile which has not yet been recovered, two Whitman Park men were given six months in the county jail by Police Judge Pancoast yesterday. 

Identified by the owner of the machine who said he saw them drive away in it, Herbert Cox, 25, of 1247 Van Hook Street, and Charles Casale, 26, of 1351 Van Hook Street, were sentenced in spite of their denial of the theft. John Harwan, of 1311 Sheridan Street, the owner of the car, testified that Cox and Casale took his machine from Mt. Ephraim Avenue and Van Hook Street where it was parked in front of his soft drink establishment. He tried to jump on the running board, he said, but could not reach it. He called the police and ordered the men arrested, he said. 

Cox and Casale said they did not know anything about Harwan's automobile. They were in a speakeasy drinking all night, they said, and left the place intoxicated. In answer to Judge Pancoast's questions the men said they did not remember where the speakeasy was.

BOY FOUND DRUNK GETS 30-DAY TERM

A 16-year-old youth who was found unconscious in a vacant house from the effects of drinking liquor was sentenced to 30 days in jail yesterday by Police Judge Garfield Pancoast.

He is Julius Carter, 1288 Van Hook Street, who was discovered Monday night in a house at 534 Ray Street by Motorcycle Patrolman Earl Wright.

"You are certainly starting out well," Judge Pancoast told the boy. "Where did you get the liquor?"

"Some fellows gave it to me," was the reply.

"Well, I am going to stop you from starting that habit," was Judge Pancoast's answer.

YOUTHS PEDDLING RADIO 
ARRESTED ON SUSPICION

Two youths were arrested late last night on suspicion of stealing a radio when one of them was interrupted by detectives while attempting to sell it.

Detectives Benjamin Simon, Clifford Del Rossi and Robert Ashenfelter became suspicious of a car parked at Norris and Sheridan Streets. The occupant, Stephen Stanziak, 19, of 1279 Sheridan Street, said he was waiting for a companion who was in the store of Michael Gucik, northeast corner of Norris and Sheridan Streets. The detectives entered the store and found Joseph Fiume, 16, of 1349 Van Hook Street, attempting to sell a radio to Gucik. The youths said it had been given to them by a man they did not know.
