(Strauss: Intermezzo). Ten. An impoverished young man of good background whom Christine Storch meets when tobogganing while her husband is away. They go to a dance at a local inn and he tells Christine how his family want him to study law and will not support him in other studies which he prefers. She helps him to find suitable lodgings and writes to her husband about her young escort, but Lummer soon becomes fed up with keeping her company, and meets his girlfriend in his new rooms. He hopes Christine will help him financially but she tells him firmly that he must wait for that until her husband returns. When Storch does return, he feigns jealousy of the Baron, but Christine assures him she is now thoroughly bored with the young man and his constant demands for money. Created (1924) by Theo Strack.
