MISS KLINK'S BODY FOUND IN RIVER Man in Harrisburg, Pa., Jail Reiterates He Did Not Kill Woman. By th«» Associated Press. HARRISBURG, Pa., February 18 The Susquehanna River has given up the body of Miss Verna Klink, 31-year old candy store manager, and the po lice today announced that Harry B. Bow-man, perfume salesman, probably would be charged with her murder. Bowman has been held in the county jail since his arrest on January 28, three days after Miss Klink dis appeared, but the charges against him were those resulting only from his ad missions that money found on him had belonged to the missing woman. He was successively accused of robbery, conspiracy to rob and larceny, as well as two charges involving Miss Ethel Miller, upon whom, police claim, he spent the money obtained from Miss Klink. The total bail of $15,000 was sufOclent to hold him in prison while the search for Miss Kllnk's body con tinued. * That search came to an end yester day, when, after 23 days of futile drag ging of the river near the spot where the woman was last seen, her body was found 3 miles down the stream, caught against a rock 35 feet from %hore. Aside from saying he was "glad they found her," and reiterating his asser tion that he did not kill her, Bowman remained silent when told that Miss Klink’s body had been recovered. He has maintained that he was aiding the woman to buy the candy store of which she was manager, and that on the night of her disappearance she jumped into the river while despondent because she could not complete the transaction. Police say he quoted the girl as urging him to commit suicide also. He explained that he jumped into the water when the woman leaped, but became frightened and crawled ashore. Comb Makers Complain. If there Is any return to long tresses, workers of the comb factory at Aber deen, Scotland, have not noticed it. The past year, they say, has been one of the blackest for the Hutcheon street plant, which, during the days of long hair, was the largest comb producer in the worlds Instead of a crowded sched ule, there has been only restricted and irregular employment. NEED FOR CHARITY TOLD SOCIETY IN ADDRESSES Rev. Edward P. McAdams and Rev. John O'Grady Speak at Quar terly Meeting-. The kind of charity that Christ dispensed is typified in mjdern times by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Rev. Edward P. McAdams told the regular quarterly meeting of the society, held yesterday in St. Joseph’s Church and School, Second and C streets northeast. Taking as his text “The Poor Will Always Be With You,” Father McAdams, who is pastor of St. Josephs, asserted that approximately 85 per cent of the people of the United States are really poor, with many in straightened circum stances. The rule of secrecy in charitable matters did not permit the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to become part of the Community Chest fund for Wash ington, Father McAdams explained. Misunderstanding has arisen with regard to the care of dependent families under the Community Chest fund. Rev. Dr. John O'Grady, director of Catholic Charities in Washington, told the society. Other speakers included George J. Cleary, Allen Pope. William H. De Lacy and John Hadley Doyle. "A baby needs something every week." "So does a car”—Louisville Courier.
