REPORT TAKES A WALLOP AT
"There are more crimes commit
ted against our girls in Riverview
park in one night than there are on
the beaches in a month," Ass't
State's Att'y Robert Hogan stated
when he learned that CapL Woods of
the Town Hall station had transfer
red the policewomen detailed at the
nark tn t.h hathine beaches. "The
reports of our investigators are being
turned over to the police. &o iar we
have found that Riverview has in
sufficient police protection."
Hogan is now going over the sec
ond report of the juvenile court in
vestigators who were detailed to
probe the moral conditions in the
park by Judge Mary Bartelme and
Hogan. Judge Bartelme said she be
gan this investigation because of the
large number of girls who came into
her court and testified they had been
'"picked up" in Riverview.
The second report says that girls
are employed by owners of conces
sions in a very peculiar capacity; that
of a "shiller." A "shiller," according
to one of the girls, goes around to
the different concessions and wins
the big prizes. A short time later,
says the report, she turns these back
to the owner of the concession
through the rear door.
Alma Peterson, a "shiller," could
give no explanation to the meaning
of the name of her job. She said that
th oii-is wp.rfi naid 25 cents an hour
to win the prizes and that they never
tried to keep the prizes they "won"
because they had been told that the
cops would get them.
The report which tells how the
public is flim-flammed by the con
cession owners will be turned over
to Chief Healey by Hogan.
