GIRL SAYS SHE ESCAPED FROM
RESORT POLICE PUZZLED
Springfield, III., Aug. 14. The sad
story of a feeble-minded girl, who has
said over and over that she escaped
from a house of ill-fame in St. Louis,
where she has been held for immoral
purposes since childhood, is puzzling
While acknowledging that the girl
may have escaped from some state
institution, they are unable to ex
plain how she knows so much con
cerning the routine of the St Louis
house, or why she should cling to
that part of her story, if it is not
"Pearl," the only name she knows,
said the St, Louis resort was a prison
where the girls were kept with no
. chance to escape. She said there
was one large lady and a great many,
men and the doors were always kept
The girl is probably 18. She has
brown hair and blue eyes and is of
average height. She claims that a
kind man helped her away from the -resort.
Rev. Charles Virden, state visitor
for the Board of Administration, has
been called to investigate the case.
