On Yacht in Hanaya
Will Be Re-enacted

HAVANA, April 16.—Cuban, offi
cials today arranged a re-enactment
of events which took place when
John Lester Mee, 33, Chicago at
torney and poet, was wounded fa
tally in his cabin aboard the yacht
Satira in Havana harbor, April 8.
Patricia Schmidt, 21, an almond
eyed dancer of Oriental specialties,
whose professional name is “Satira,”
will be brought from Guanabaco
Prison tomorrow to satisfy Judge
Santiago Menacia’s expressed curio
sity as to how the 5-foot, 2-inch To
ledo girl could fire a bullet which
took a downward course through
the neck of the 6-foot, 2-inch Mee.
Miss Schmidt, who was indicted
yesterday on homicide charges in
Mr. Mee’s death Sunday, said Mon
day in the presence of her attorney,
Rene Castellanos, that she fired one
wild shot from a .22 caliber target
pistol during an argument after she
discovered Mr. Mee was married.
Friend Appoint* Counsel.
She said she had lived aboard the
yacht iii the shadow of towering
Morro Castle since January.
"He had asked me to marry him,”
she repeated again and again. ‘‘We
were terribly in love.”
Charles Jackson, 27, of River For
est, HI., joint owner with Mr. Mee
of the 72-root yacht, named a law
yer, Dr. Israel Soto Barroso, today
to represent him in the' case. He
was indicted as an accessory after
the fact, allegedly for concealing
Information, f
Bail for Jackson—a wartime
buddy of Mr. Mee—was fixed at
Case May Require Year or More.
The case against Jackson and
Miss Schmidt may require several
months—even a year—before it
reaches trial. She was not ad
mitted to bail, but Mr. Castellanos
declared that within a month he
would prove to the Cuban courts
that the shohoting was in self
defense, and that thus, under
Cuban law, his client should be
freed on bond.
Dr. Lester E. Mee, the victim's
father, and John F. Arnold, a cousin,
were given authority to remove Mr’.
Mee’s body from Cuba. They said
they would transport it to Wilmette,
HI.; for funeral services and burial.
The once-married and divorced
Miss Schmidt was permitted by
authorities last' night to pose for a
photographer and she chatted with
him freely in the prison dormitory,
about which she commented:
"As jails go, I suppose this isn’t
so bad.”
