GIRL'S STORY CAUSES ARREST
OF MAN UNDER MANN ACT
A girl's story the tale of an inno
cent young lady who trusted a man
too far has put George Cochrane
of Springfield, 111., in bad. He was
arrested yesterday under the Mann
act; 18-year-old Catherine Beatty
will testify against him.
She tells the following story:
She met him when she was 17 in
her home village, Moberly, Mo. He
said he was a movie star and said he
loved her; then he made her promise
and left.
When he got to Springfield he sent
for her and she stayed at his moth
er's home for a week. Mrs. Coch
rane told her to go back to Missouri.
But she listened to the voice of
love and the pleadings of George and
came to Chicago with him. They
lived in a rooming house at 53 W.
Ohio st. He didn't marry her, as he
promised; she waited patiently, how
ever. George was out of a job. Their
roon rent was due. O'ne night he
suggested a way she could make
enough money to support both. And
she believed in him again.
The first time she told her story
was one evening when she got home
to the rooming house, tired out, sick
and discouraged. George was not
there so she sat down and talked
with Mrs. A. Busch, the keeper of the
house. Little details slipped out and
Mrs. Busch wrung the whole tale
from her.
George's arrest followed.
