      Talks heal hearts

      A MAN with a lined, sun-tanned face, and a deep sense of humanity, last week gave a broken marriage another chance.
      He is Mr. S. Wilson, C.S.M.
      After a talk to a young married couple in an empty court room, he reconciled them..
      Beryl Vansleve, 22, of Abbott street, New Farm, an expectant mother, was seeking maintenance for herself and a 16-month-old baby, from her husband, Rawlston Vansleve, 18, of St. Vincent's Road, Banyo. They married in January, 1947.
      Mrs. Vansleve said that her mother-in-law, with whom they lived, had looked after the baby, while she went to work. When her mother in-law returned to work in the Banyo pineapple cannery, she had to stop work. When she told her mother-in-law that she was to have another baby, she replied that her son was too young, and that two children would tie them down too much.
      After her father-in-law had told her to get out, and her husband had struck her, Mrs. Vansleve continued, she left her husband, on August 13.
      About this stage in the evidence, Mr. Wilson stepped in and after a 40-minute conference, the couple called off the case.
      "Most disputes, including matrimonial ones, can be settled by a third independent party." Mr. Wilson commented afterwards.
      With a smile, he threw in a little bit of sound advice - "Some parties do not realise that in matrimonial matters there must be a spirit of compromise, and neither party can have all his or her own way."
      The new Maintenance Bill now before State Parliament provides for adjudicating justices, at any stage of proceedings, taking all steps which may, in their opinion, settle the dispute by conciliation.

      Marriage saved in court

      Mr. S. Wilson, C.S.M., had a fatherly chat with a young married couple in an empty courtroom at the Police Court yesterday.
      He suggested during the hearing of evidence in a maintenance action that the parties meet him in private conference to see if they could become reconciled.
      An agreement'97 terms of which were not disclosed'97 was reached without the hearing of further evidence.
      Beryl Vansleve, of Abbott street, New Farm, an expectant mother, sought maintenance for herself and 16 months-old child from her husband, Rawlston Vansleve, of St. Vincent's Road, Banyo
      Mrs. Vansleve is 22 and her husband 18. They married in January, 1947.
      "Son too young'"
      Mrs. Vansleve said that her mother-in-law, with whom they were living, had looked after the baby while she went to work. She received 6/5/ a week, and her husband 5 odd.
      She had to stop working when her mother-in-law had to to back to work at the Banyo pineapple factory. Mrs Vansleve said that when she told her mother-in-law that she was going to have another baby her mother-in-law said that her son was too young, and that the two children would tie them down too much.
      After her father-in-law had told her to get out and her husband had struck her, she left her husband on August 13. He later told her she could return to him, but they would go their own way and each pay his mother 35/ a week board.
      Table conference
      At this stage husband and wife and their legal representatives-Mr. E. S. Williams (for the husband) and Mr. J A Douglas (for the wife) - adjourned to another court and gathered around the legal table with Mr. Wilson as arbiter.
      After a 40-minute conference Mr. Wilson returned to the court with the parties and announced that the following words would be recorded in the depositions:
      "This case is adjourned sine die, to be brought on at any time, as necessary, on reference to the Chief Stipendiary Magistrate."
      Mr. Williams was instructed by Mr. J. P. Kelly, and Mr. Douglas by Mr. Leo Williams.
