Belgian Refugee Dies

Mme Robert, Knitting Instructor, Had Suffered Great Sorrow

Mme. Christine Robert, a Belgian refugee who has been serving as instructor in knitting at the headquarters of the Stage Women's War Relief Society, died yesterday in Lutheran Hospital. Sorrow for the fate of her country, her murdered husband, and lost home is said to have undermined her health. Her death, however, followed an operation. According to information supplied by her friends yesterday, Mme. Robert was the wife of a prominent Brussels manufacturer before the invasion of the Huns in 1914. Her home was taken over by the invading soldiery and her husband, resisting, was shot.

Sentenced to death herself, Mme Robert managed to escape. Going to Canada she became a nurse in awealthy family. Later, at Los Angeles, she met Mrs. William Farnum, wife of the actor. Mrs. Farnum obtained employment for Mme. Robert with the Stage Women's organization, and since last August, eight hours a day, the refugee had taught knitting to members of the theatrical profession.

The funeral will be held under the auspices of the Actor's Fund of America at the Campbell Funeral Church, Broadway and Sixty-sixth Street, on Monday morning at 11 o'clock.
