New York Times

Seeks Final Order in Her Divorce Suit in White Plains
---
WHITE PLAINS, N. Y., March 1---Counsel for Mrs. Ava Willing Astor filed a note of issue to-day for a motion to make permanent the interlocutory decree of divorce she obtained from Col. John Jacob Astor, granted by Justice Mills at New City, in Rockland County, more than three months ago. The application sets forth that Mrs. Astor will appear before Justice Mills on Friday next and ask that the final decree be granted in her behalf.

A clerk from the law firm of Strong & Cadwalader of 40 Wall Street, New York, counsel for Mrs. Astor, filed the application in the County Clerk's Office, and the matter will come before Supreme Court Justice Mills at a special term here next Friday.

When Mrs. Astor obtained the interlocutory decree from Justice Mills she had three months in which to make the application for the permanent decree. The time limit would have expired next Friday.
