and captured Kitty Valaire and
one newspaper reporter.
The girl was taken first to de
tective headquarters, where she
was questioned by Capt. Halpin.
Halpin got no satisfaction from
her and ordered her taken to
. Hyde Park station.
All during the long patrol ride
'' to Hyde Park Kitty Valaire wept
softly. Her mock bravado left
! her. She seemed a forlorn little
slip of humanity, crushed in be
tween the big policemen.
She had "got herself in bad.''
She had been as much of a "d d
fool" as her friend, Belle Hast
ings, and the "cops had some
thing on her."
She realized what had hap
pened, what her future life would
be. So she wept. And sometimes
she would throw back her head
defiantly and exclaim:
"You haven't got anything on
And sometimes she bitterly de
nounced her husband for desert
ing her three years ago, laying all
the blame for her trouble on him.
The reporter meantime was
traveling around the underworld
district near Feinberg's.
Nearly every place along the
line the women knew Kittie Va
laire and Teddy Webb., But they
wouldn't talk about where Webb
might be No one on the South
Side will do that.
The police hope to break Kit
tie Valaire down by persistent
questioning. They are pretty
sure she knows where Webb is.
But she doesn't .show any signs
f breaking down.
