Dizzy Doctors question

Your site claims that Blanche Payson plays Larry's wife, but The Three Stooges Scrapbook and imdb.com list someone named Eva Murray as Larry's wife. Who actually played Larry's wife in the short?

Blanche Payson played Larry's wife.

As noted in this site's cast directory, "Eva Murray -  scene deleted; role recast."

There is a Columbia production still from this short, that shows the originally cast wives as Eva Murray, Elaine Waters and June Gittelson.  Two of those roles were recast for reason(s) unknown (Blanche Payson for Eva, Ione Leslie for Elaine), with June as the only holdover.  In the production still, Eva Murray is a short, attractive woman, and Stoogeum staff research has turned up one sole news item (1969 obituary) that mentions her as a former showgirl.
