A careful check yesterday, taken at 18

that 252 tourist ears were In the city,
the day being one of the poorest of
the season. It is probable that other
cars stopped at other gasoline sta

LONDON, Aug. IS. Has a man the
right to Jilt a girl whom he js engaged
10 marry ;
The question has been raised by
London newspapers following a state
ment made by Justice McCardie in a
breach of promise case at Birming
"Irts my conclusion," said the jus
tice, "that more than half the divorces
are caused because the parties were
not really in love. In many cases they
discovered that fact, before the mar
riage took "place. A girl has a right
to jilt a man but a man often goes
ahead with the marriage, fearing
breach of promise proceedings."
The Marchioness Townsend said
she thought any honest man would
tell his fiancee that be had ceased to
love her, regardless of the risk of a
breach of promise suit.
"The remarkable thing Is that so
many girls fail to realize that the men
they are engaged to no longer love
them," she added.
Miss Genevieve Ward. English act
ress, said that an engaged girl should
be glad to get rid of a man who has
transferred his affections to another
without thinking of breach of promise
The Daily Mail, canvassing a num
ber of "practical business girls," re
ports that they prefer to have their
fiances tell them the truth before the
trip to tho altar. They are generally
opposed to breach of promise actions,
but believe that a girl who has spent
a lot of money for a wedding outfit
should be reimbursed by a jilting fi
"The right to love carries with li
I the right to jilt," announces one writ
er. "If a man or woman finds that
tre early attraction is passing, it is
t?erefore their bounden duty to break
e'f. The day may arrive when dam
:i...f will be awarded not for correct
a very human mistake on the
threshold of disaster, but for failing to
coiict it. There ought to be a way
of i ' (tiding these disasters without un
due penalty. For there Is nothing
unit so hideous, or quite so hopeless
as a loveless marriage." ,
Sanction One Thing, Whim Another.
A well known English judge, writ
ing in the Evening Standard, upholds
man's right to jilt.
"Where a man has seduced a girl
then an action is a very proper thing,"
writes me judge. "But that a man
can be sued merely because, having
genuinely fallen in love he genuinely
falls out again, is ridiculous. In the
ebsence of more serious features, a
woman should not be able to get dam
ages merely because a man changes
"1 have known cases where the pro
posed suit got so far as the issuing of
the writ when the finance has said:
I would rather marry vou than face 1
courts like this.' Tes. and I have!
known cases where the girl has ac
cepted the offer. A good start for
"I do not want to convey the Im
pression, however, that there are not
thoroughly serious and Justified cases.
In addition to the class to which I
have referred there is that In which a
man heartlessly keeps a girl hanging

be more until she loses all chance of
marrying anyone else. When a man
behaves as badly as that it is clearly
right that she should have to make

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18 (U. P.)
President Hiirding opposes the various
"trick" schemes suggested for stabiliz
ing international exchange, according
to today s developments. He wants
the return to normalcy in the world
of finance to proceed along slow and
natural lines. President Harding
therefore sees little use of calling an
international financial conference as
Senator King, of Utah proposes In a
resolution, unless active demand caus
es the calling of such a conference.
