AGED MAN HELD FOR DOWNFALL
OF YOUNG GIRL
Frederick S. Mordaunt, 50 years
old, president of the National Rail
way Magazine, was arrested yester
day afternoon on a charge of being
responsible for the downfall of Jos
ephine Selwood, 17, former employe
of Rothschild's department store.
According to the girl's story she
met Mordaunt over the counter at
the store. He posed as "Jack Ran
dolph," a wealthy editor. He was
handsome and commanding. . She '
resisted and then fell.
That was six weeks ago. Subse- '
quently a fake marriage was per
formed. The girl discovered this and '
began to avoid the man. He pleaded; '
wrote long love letters; then he -threatened.
The girl turned the letters over to
her parish priest. She told "Ran-
dolph" of doing so. Soon after a a
voice over the telephone offered the "
priest $60,000 for the letters. The
matter was taken up by the Juvenile
Protective Ass'n. Miss Selwood -3
claims Mordaunt is the man. He de- J
nies the charge.
