answer to the charge of murdering

be lengthy. There will be. much
difficulty in securing a jury, it is felt
The defense has already expressed
displeasure at so many of the first
venire being from Lake Forest and
Highland Park.
Orpet is wan and nervous. His de
bonair 'air of the first few days of
his arrestTias vanished with the con

Waukegan jail
Marian Lambert was found dead
in a Lake Forest woods following a
tryst with Orpet, whocame from
Madison, ,Wis., to meet her after
making efforts to create an alibi
which might later seem to prove that
he had not been away from Madison
His alibi was crushed by State's
Att'y Dady.
The girl's death was caused by
cyanide poison. No container was
found near the, body.
Ornet. it is"T)elieved, thought his
sweetheart was in a delicate condi
tion. She 'had thought so herself,
but shortly before her death knew
otherwise.
