SEQUEL IN COURT
P.A. AUCKLAND, This Day. The woman who, as reported in September, has masqueraded for over ten years as a man appeared before Mr. J. H. Luxford, S.M.. today, with the woman with whom she had lived as her husband, charged with offences, under the Marriage Act. Mr. Luxford said the case was unique in his experience. He admitted both the defendants for a term of three years, and made the condition that, each woman should submit herself to psychiatric treatment. In an aside he said: "You will need it." It would be a condition of probation that any directions given by the psychiatrist should be followed. Mr. Luxford also stipulated that the two parties should remain apart, and to give them every chance to return to normality, he also made an order that their names should not be published.
