last week at Council Bluffs of a charge

Miss Ripke and found the photograph of
"Rica" Emma Ripke was questionec.
"I don't know who she was,*' said the
girl "But I hate her. I could wish her
dead The police believed they had a
motive for the alleged murder. The
trial hinged on the question of whether
Potts committed suicide. ?or was shot by
Miss Ripke, and the evidence introduced
to show that he frequently threatened to
kill himself apparently outweighed that
of the prosecution.
