publicity is essential if one
Would be up-to-date.

NEW YORK, April 5. ffew York
.society folhs who contemplate airlns
their .domestic difficulties in the
courts and public prints must, if they
would be up to date, go hire a press
James A. Stillman and' his wife,
"FfTi" Potter Stillman, established the
precedent which has opened up a new
and amazing branch of the publicity
Each side of the sensational divorce
action had its press agent. Not, as
is usually, the case, to get "nice"
things printed about themselves. The
Bystem was reversed. The press
agents werev hired to and did re
veal to the palpitating public all the
things the public wanted to know
about the other side. This is the sys
tem: "Mr. Stillman, it became known to
day, named Fred Beauvais, an In
dian guide, co-respondent in his suit
. That put the burden on Mrs. Still
man. Mrs. iStillman's press agent met
the newspaper, men. (Nejjt day:
"Mrs. Stillman, it was learned from
an authoritative source today, accus
es her husband of being the 'husband'
of Mrs. Florence Leeds."
Then it was Stillman's turn. His
press agent countered with this:
"Attorneys for Stillman are known
to have in their possession a letter
from his wife, alleged to contain a
"Fifl" Potter. Stillmaa's publicity
agent rejoins with this:
"Letters said to be in the posses
sion of Mrs. Stillman's attorneys'show
that Jame3 Stillman had no suspicions
against his wife, even after the al
leged letter, of confession."
And as this battle of publicity grew
warmer, bit by bit, the whole case
was before the court of public opinion.
The lawyers concerned, old and es-
tablished firms, ethical and all that,
of course, disclaimed "leaking" to the
press. Perish the thought.
But the press agent for Mrs. Still
man was an ' employe of one of fler
several law firms whee knowledge
of the newspaper game and nose for
news proved an invaluable aid to her
side of the case.
The press agent for ' Stlllmap. was
a tried newspaperman who, since
leaving the business, has become a
publicity manager of one of New
York's greatest corporations., 1
