ALLEN, Eighteen, photographed as she ap peared in court at Norristown. Pa., yes terday. when her brother, Edward H. B. Allen, was indicted by the county grand jury for murder in connection with the killing of her friend, Francis A. Donald son. 3d. Allen will go on trial Monday. The trial, with the life of a society man at stake, comes as the climax of a drama which contains every element of emotional appeal, suspense, intrigue, a girl's honor, the whole range of pas sions from love to hatred—and death. In the hands of Miss Allen may lie her brother's life. Miss Allen and Don aldson were close friends. The young men quarreled, it is alleged, over Don aldson's attentions to Miss Allen just before the fatal shooting in the Green Hill Farms Hotel last November 9. Shortly after the shooting Miss Allen said her brother and her father. Horace Allen, were responsible, and there has been no indication that she has changed her attitude. Donaldson's parents have said they do not wish a death penalty, but ask instead that "Allen be punished so that he can never forget this awful thing he has done."
