Tells How Young Girls Are Trapped Evelyn Nesbitt,
Eighteen, Tells of the Experiences That Led
Her to the Juvenile Home.

Evelyn Nesbitt knows intimately of the night life, its pleasures and its
sorrows; she has been pursued by white slavers and knows how they work
to entice girls into lives oT shame. At present she is a prisoner of the
Juvenile Court in Los Angeles, where she is being held as an important wit

so that YOUR son or YOUR daughter may not be a victim. The articles
will appear from day to day. The first one follows. Editor.
