RICH VAMPIRES WHO
Begins' Investigation of Crim

ENTICED BY JOY RIDES.
Daughters of Good Families
I-ured by Organized Clique
to Drink and Worse.
The Kings Count v tli-and Jury be.
n to-day to Arlve Into the secrets
of a coterie of wealthy young Hrnoklyn
society men who, possessed of motor
ears and well-lined porkctbooks, but
lacking moral balance, have for mora
than a year been making their pastime
the scientific dcgrcdntlon of young girls.
With their automobiles and their es
euranrea of an exciting evening at the
abaret shown as the bait, these youths,
who have drifted together Into a more
or leas formal organization, have lured
many girls of good family astray and
the puller believe that the mysterious
disappearance of at least a dozen girls
bow officially "mlrsing" might be
traced back to them.
Kvldenee against rwo of the men Is
now In the possesion of Asaistant District-Attorney
Louis (loldsteln and will
be presented to the Grand Jury In the
naar future. In the meantime further
Investigation will be made by Mr. Gold
stein, who learned of the existence of
tha debauihers' clique through hla
official connection with the caao of
Martha Kohlcr, the aevonteen-year-old
schoolgirl daughter uf Jamea Pollock
Kohler, a lawyer and politician of prom
inence, on behalf of whom a serious
charge has been made ngalnst Walter
K. Doyle, a young real estate operator
who until recently had offices at No. it!
STAMPEDE IN THE RANKS OF
The activity of the District-Attorney's
office and of Central Office detectives
ha caused a stampede already In the
ranks of the clique. Many of those
whoso appearance was desired before
the Grand Jury and at the arraignment
of Doyle in Flatbuah Court next Tues
day morning, have left Brooklyn, and
subpoenas Issued for them remained un
served. Mr. Kohler, who is secretary to the
Tax Commission and hae his own law
offices at No. 4 Court street, was sure
to-day that representations had been
made to his daughter by some member
of the clique. The girl, who accused
Doylu in an affidavit he swore to laat
October, and who for a time seemed
willing to press the charge against him,
has changed her attitude. She has told
her father and her brothers, one of
whom Is Philip Kohler. Mayor Goy

company with Miss Hadlo Hcrmalln, a
school teacher only a year or two older
than herself. Someone provided Miss
Kohler with i-'OO, according to her
father, who brought her back from At

In conversations with her father and
brothers and with Mr. Goldstein and
Detectives States, Downey and Sullivan,
who have been ass.gno 1 to break up the
clique, the Kohler git 1 has given the
names of severul other victims. She
also has mentioned several young men

has been greatly Increased by the Inva

"Why do you encourage women to study themselves In the Lenten

displeasing some of the ladies now primping before the Lonten Looking

the greatest defect of the modern woman is her Inability to project her

terness against life arises not from

of the modern man neerls to turn her
attention to her own sex. Just for

olnb, which, with all Its patty
bickerings and fads, has dona mot

American woman than any other
