POLICE SEEK "MAN IN CASE" OF
YOUNG GIRL'S DEATH
The police continued their search
today for the man who would have
been the father of Marie Gruenwald's
child had she, chosen to live and to
stand the gossip of the world after
"her money, her job, her honor and
her love were gone."
Back of the finding of the girl's
body in the lake off Jackson park
Wednesday is the story of the highly
respected young housekeeper in the
girls' dormitory, Northwestern uni
versity, who allowed a brief moment
of frenzied love to wreck her life.
Sheywould have been a mother
soon. But In a letter written to a
friend shortly before she died she
admitted that her love tor "the man"
had turned to hate, although he was
willing to marry her.
For a while she believed she would
stick it out and live in the hope of
finding comfort in the baby that was
soon to come. But then the blow
fell. At Northwestern university,
situated in the very proper Evanston,
theyfo'und out her condition. So
they, turned her out with a black
mark on her record. Tuesday she
admitted to Alice ' CabilL director of
houses at the university, the truth
of her condition. Wednesday they
found her body floating in the lake.
Although the coroner holds to the
suicide theory, the police are not so
certain. They want to find the man
and question him before deciding.
