Housemaid Says Rubens or Robinsons Were Quiet Authorities Find Negress Wli Formerly Was Employed By Couple Sow Held In, Enssla CLEVELAND. Jan. 12-The mystery of the mysterious Rub" ens-Robinson couple bobbed up in Cleveland today. Rose Carlisle, 25-year old negress housemaid, said she recognized newspaper pictures as those of a couple for whom she had worked In New York for six months in 1936. The girl paused long enough m her tidying-up about the kitchen of her present employers, Dr. and Mrs.' Paul M. Moore, to chat about the personalities of the internaticnal- situation-creating Rubens-Robinsons. "They were peculiar, quiet people," she said, lazily shredding a carrot and trying to recall memories of the couple whose disappearance had the United States and Soviet governments exchanging formal state notes. "They never had callers and seldom went out in the evening, except to a movie." She said that Mrs. Rubens (they apparently gave the name of ''Robinson" on passports--the start of it all) once told her that she was German and that her husband was Russian. Man IVas Handsome Rose described the man as a "handsome, tall, and broad-shouldered gentleman who spoke with an accent." The woman. Rose pictured, as a "sweet, medium-sized person." They lived in a fashionable Riverside Drive apartment. "Was there an air of mystery about the mysterious couple's home?" "Oh. they were a little peculiar. But I didn't think there was anything unusual about them--that is. until Mrs.. Rubens told me to say nothing when I answered the telephone, except, 'I don't know.'" she answered. The girl said Rubens told her he was a writer. "Every morning before breakfast, he would spend several hours ·at his desk writing something on the typewriter." she said. Rose admitted, sheepishly, that, with maid- like curlcsity, she had taken a "peek" at the results of Rubens' before-breakfast typing. But, she shrugged, f.he never could read ·what he had written. It was in a foreign language. Lot o! Cnsli "When Mr. Rubens went out- in the morning," she continued, "he always came back with a let of cash. Many times I saw him with a roll of SEO bills, and once," she sighed, "I saw a $100 bill." Several times slie heard Mrs. Rubens talking about her mother, who, apparently, the girl judged, had gone south for her health. "She often said her people demanded money from her" Rose added. She said she was not positive i-bout the name Mrs. Rubens meu- ' tioned as being that of her mother, but Rose thought she recognized the name "Boerger," either from having heard it or seeing it--acci- dently--on an envelope. She said she was sure she heard Mrs. Rubens refer to a "Connie." "And Rubens always called Mrs. Eubens 'Ruth', and she called him 'Honey,' 'Darling' or some e t h e r endearing name." Rose sighed again. Second Indiana Order Kiddie Knead bread and rou will enjoy a real treat.
