With Friend for Family.
While police are searching two cities
for the attractive young woman who
abandoned a pink-cheeked baby girl in
the Harrington Hotel here Wednesday
night, the identity of the man who ac
companied her to the hostelry - and then
disappeared has been established.
Benjamin Aronsohn, a decorator, re

to Capt. Brown. The bellboy from
the Harrington, who had described
Aronsohn, was called to the station
house and identified him as the wom
an's escort. Satisfied with the truth
of Aronsohn’s statements, Capt.
Brown permitted him to depart.
