DANNENBERG MAY TELL ON MORALS
SQUAD BEFORE GRAND JURY
Former Inspector of Morals to Be Called as Witness is
Rumor Around Criminal Court Woman's Letter

against other women and some offi

grand jury, it is rumored, will be For

the squad because .he and Major
Funkhouser could not agree. But

In addition to Dannenberg, .nany
