WHITE SLAVES SOLD BY POUND
IN NEW YORK
New York, Aug. 16. One dollar a
pound is the price actually paid in
several instances for immature
young girls auctioned off by white
slavers to proprietors of disorderly
resorts in New York, Ass't Dis't At
torney Smith, prosecuting campaign
against vice trust, declared today.
Not only did the vice ring under
investigation here systematically
set about to obtain school girls for
resorts, but on East 22d street they
maintained a house where young
girls, sometimes completely disrobed,
were sold to the highest bidder.
"In one instance agents for the
iisorderly houses got into a dispute
over the value of a girl who had been
put up for sale," said Smith. "They
finally agreed upon a price of ?1 a
pound. After that it became a com
mon practice to weigh all girls and
announce their weight to bidders."
District attorney's office is inves
tigating reports that other similar
places were maintained. It was re
called today that only a few months
ago a minister's daughter was kid
naped and auctioned off nude before
a gang in an Italian dance hall.

JUDGE LENIENT TO WOMAN WHO
BEAT CAS COMPANY
The gas company wanted Mrs. A.
J. Geig, 2349 W. Jackson- blvd., sent
"to the Bridewell. She had-' stolen
some of its gas, it said.
"If I send her to the Bridewell will
the gas .company take care of the
babies?" asked Judge Goodnow.
There are three babies, the oldest 6. '
"We can't do that," said Att'y E.
H. Fiedler for the company.
"You're not married, or you'd see
this differently," said the judge.
"I'll not send her to the Bridewell.
Instead, I'll continue the case a
month. Maybe the family can get on
their feet in that time."
