he soon became a very close friend.
She and Miss Norris and Diggs and
Caminetti frequently went on long

The six women who had managed
to get into the courtroom displayed
a hectic interest, their cheeks were
flushed and they absorbed every word
of the story, but Marsha Warring
ton's voice betrayed no emotion, she
seemed as disinterested as a child
repeating a story memorized from a

J. B. Hillhouse, chief of police of
Reno, testified that he arrested Miss
Warrington, Miss Norris and Diggs
and Caminetti in their bungalow in
"I found them only partly dressed,"
he stated. "On the way to the rail
road station Diggs told the girls it
