THREE YOUNG GIRLS ACCUSE
TWO RICH MEN
Residents of the Polish district are
aroused over the serious charges
made against two wealthy men by
three little Polish girls. The men are
William Scannell, head of the Chi
cago Iron Foundry Co., and Leonard
Roer, proprietor of the Winchester
Theater, 1936 W. Chicago av.
Scannell was arraigned before
Judge Fisher in the West Chicago
court. Roer has apparently skipped
his bond, so Scannell's case was con
tinued. The girls who accuse the men of
attacking them are: May Kratsky, 8,
2216 Austin, Theresa. Malkanscuk,
2312 Grand, and Ida Pitman, 2211
The actions of the men became
known when the three little girls told
another girl at the Ella Mitchell
school and the latter told her sisters
who in turn notified the police. Scan
nell and Roer are married. The for
mer has two children.
