MOTHER OF DEAD GIRL PLEADS
FOR ALLEGED SLAYER
A plea that Wm. H. Orpet, suspect-
ed slayer of his former sweetheart,
Marian Lambert, Lake Forest high
school girl, be set free, has been made
by the mother of the girl.
The plea was prompted by the sym
pathy the girl's mother held for the
mother of the accused.
"No punishment the law might visit
upon Mr. Will Orpet will give me back
my Marian," Mrs. Lambert told Ralph
Dady, Lake county state's attorney.
"I want no vengeance, even if he is
guilty, and I cannot believe he is."
If Orpet did murder Miss Lambert,
his former intimate sweetheart, there
is reason to believe it was a mistake
on his part into which he was led by
the girl. J

condition. This fact was indubitably
established by the coroner's autopsy.

by the pathos of her supposed con- A
dition. If she had revealed the truth"
to him she might not now be dead.
Frank Lambert, father of poison
victim, today' emphatically declared'
that he would not drop prosecution"
against Orpet "I am not seeking
vengeance, but justice," said Lam
