22-caliber revolver. St
The police expressed the opinion th
that each girl held a revolver at the
other's head and fired. It was plan- m.
no-t to hold an inquest todhy. S1
The note found in the girl's room pi
was addressed to Miss Spalding's tr
mother. Through inquiries made at
her home in Newton it was learned
that Margaret Spalding was a gradu- Th
ate of the Newton High School, where i
she had been a prominent basketball Qu
and hockey player. Since last fall N
she had been a teacher-pupil in the..
gymnasium department of the Gar
land school, in Boston. Miss Stanton
was a pupil at this school until two
weeks ago, wheni she began studies
at tthe D~ana Hall School, in Welles
ley, Mass. They were close friends.
Thought it Better to Die.
No definite reason wvas given in the.
note for the act. It is said they had
dlecidled that It was better that they
should die and asked their p)arents
not to be grief-stricken beCcause "they
wvould all be happy andl peaceful when
reunited in a better world."
A note left by Miss Stanton asked
that C. F. Malsbury, .Johnson build
ing, Cincinnati, be no'tified. Mr. Mals
burg was executor' of the estate of
Miss Stanton's mother, who was kill
edl in an automobile accidlent.
Light was thrown on the suicidles
later today when the police made pub
lic a paragraph from the joint niote
left b~y the young women. It r-ead:
"We have expJeriencedl perfect love
for each other and cannot bear the
thought of seplarat ion. So wve wvill
end it all.''
