Mrs. Leola Whlttaker the boarding
house keeper, discovered her and
told the police. An officer ques
tioned the girl. At first She stoutly
denied her Identity and insisted that
she was Grace Davis. Finally, when
her attention was called to a letter In
her room, addressed to Alma Myers,
"I left home after a little spat,"
she said. "I had a disagreement with
papa. I had no intention of going
until two minutes before I started.
I did not realize what grief it would
cause my parents. Perhaps I did,
when I saw the papers, but I thought
then I would get a scolding if I re
turned, so 1 decided to stick it out
no matter what happened."
Miss Myers is 20 and theonly child

father Is a prosperous insurance
broker. Alma was idolized by her pa
rents and her every wish was grati

ciety girl who had many men ad
mirers and much more social free
dom than Miss Myers.
