LARJORIE DELBRIDGE IS IN
CITY, SAYS HOGAN
Att'y Rob't E. Hogan says he has
found out, through the medium of a
tapped telephone wire, that Marjorie
Delbridge is still in the city and that
if she isn't turned up to the juvenile
court soon "somebody will go to
jail."
Hogan further charges that "Mam
my" Jackson and her attorneys, Jas.
G. Cotter and Chester De Armond,
know the girl's- whereabouts. He
says he listened in on a telephone
conversation between De Armond
and some member of '"Mammy"
Jackson's hbusehold, believed to
have been either Mrs. Wm. Stith or
Mrs. Wm. Powell.
When the contempt proceedings
against Cotter and De Armond are
heard in Judge Bowles' court today
Hogan says he will demand that they
and "Mammy" Jackson make affida
vits that they do not know where the
girl is. If they do that, he says, he
will charge them with perjury.

t FIRE NEGRO DOCTOR
Dr. Roscoe C. Giles, negro, took
up his duties as junior physician at
the municipal tuberculosis sanita
rium yesterday and was fired six
hours later.
Dr. C. P. Caldwell, president of the
directors, did the firing after he had
made an unsuccessful attempt to
convince the negro physician that he
should resign.
"You tfike a cold-blooded scientific
view. You don't take the doctor's
view who has the good of the pa
tients at heart," Dr. Caldwell told
him.
A poll of the 700 patients showed
that less than five were willing to be
attended by the negro.
