'BEGAN TO FEEL FRAIL' Baronet., SI, Tells Romance Break LONDON UP)-- A millionaire Baronet, 81, Monday admitted spending more than 5100,000 on a mistress, but insisted he kept the 'affair going 16 years only to keep her : from ' telling "his wife.

In the last few years of their affair he ' was paying her the equivalent of $98 a week, as well as squaring bills for thousands of dollars. ^ In 1950 the baronet was beginning to feel "a bit frail" and was eager to break off the affair. * * * * "BUT I KEPT meeting her because 1 was frightened there might be a disclosure by her," he told the court. The baronet said Miss Gray's demands for money kept mounting. She once accused him of being mean, he said, for spending $15,000 on a racenorse and protesting he' ought to spend more .on her. . Ralli's- attorney, Gilbert Bey- fus, asked the baronet why he stopped paying her money in 1950.
