EVANSTON, Ill., Feb. 24 (AP) If anyone has been holding his breath over the unusual love affair of Joseph Carson and Miss Ethel Borlund, he may breathe again. The troubles been patched up.
Carson has been waiting 10 years for Miss Borlund to marry him. In the interim, as became known Saturday, he has been calling thrice weekly, officially, and four times weekly, unofficially. The latter visits have been for the purpose of shooing away rivals. A procedure which not infrequently has prompted Miss Borlund to call police. She felt that Carsons patrolling of the front side walk on his off-evening was out of reason.
He called Sunday and that is one of Carsons nights. He had been arrested Friday night at Miss Borlunds request, he having resumed his patrol in front of her place. But last night, being a regular night, he was admitted and they talked it over. He agreed to stay away Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday night and in return for his forbearance, Miss Borlund said she would still regard their engagement as effective.
