DEMANDS INQUIRY BE RENEWED
FOR MISSING GIRLS
Andrew Silverson, president of the'
Norwegian-Danish Young; Women's
Christian Association, today demand
ed that the federal government renew
its inquiry into the mysterious disap
pearance of twenty young immigrant
girls from, a New .York to Chicago ,
train at Newcastle, Pa.
Silverson took this action after re
ceiving a letter.- from a -Pittsburgh
relative of Anna Bachman, one of the
missing girls. Silverson would not'
give out the name of. the Pittsburgh
relative. 1 v
The letter said that none -of the
girl's relatives had heard anything of
her . since she boarded a Baltimore &
Ohio train a't New York, March 17.
The Bachman girl left Copenhagen
March 6. Her parents entrusted her
to the care of the Norwegian-Danish
Young Women's Christian Associa
tion here, but instructed her to' keep
in communication with her relatives
in Pittsburgh. t
March 17, Anna Bachman arrived
in New York. That same day she
boarded a train for Chicago. But
before doing so she sent a postcard to
Pittsburgh. On the postcard she said
she'would write as soon as she reach
ed Chicago. ' .
When Anna Bachman failed to ar
rive at. the association home here, an
investigation 'was started by the fed
eral' ofjftcials. This brought ito light
the -story1 of how twenty girls had
been lured from the immigrant train
a'fc Newcastle, Pa., by two men'and
who had been left stranded there.
Railroad officials assured ihe fed
eral government that the girls had
been sent on to Chicago on a later
train. At the same time they ad
mitted they had been unable to locate
any of them.
As to Anna Bachman, the railroad
officials suggested she might have
been, met by relatives.
The Pittsburgh letter disposes of
this theory and Silverson today de
manded" that C. F. De Woody, chief
of the department of justice here, re
open the federal-investigation.
