CHICAGO, Han. 25 (AP) – It was the first time in six years that Leo Edelstein had been over to see his mother.
Mrs. Ida Edelstein is blind and an invalid. Under a court order her son, manager of a chain of shoe store, has been contributing $12 a week to her support.
After talking with her, Edelstein slipped a piece of paper in her hand and went away. When her daughter came home, Mrs. Edelstein said: Leo was here, and he gave me a check for present.”
The daughter looked. It was not a check. It was a summons to appear in court to show cause why the $12 allowance should not be reduced.
It was necessary to bundle Mrs. Edelstein in blankets and carry her to court yesterday. An attorney was there to represent her. When the facts were before him, Judge I. L. Weaver of the county court said:
“I shall not reduce the payments. I only wish there were some action before me so that I might order them increased.”
