SEARCH FOR WHITE SLAVES HELD BY
POWER OF DOPE HABIT
Chief Gleason Acts on Report That Girls Become Drug
'Victims Police Rescue Girl by Sensational Raid
Women to Fight New Drug Law
PoBce, acting oh hunches received
since the Harrison anti-dope law
went into effect, are working on
clues that young girls have been
lured and forced into white slavery
by means of dope which was forced
"on them by their captors and to which
they became addicted.
Chief Gleason, it is said, will co-operate
with the government agents in
an effort to locate white slave bands
'that have been able to keep their hold
on girl victims whom they have lured
into a life of shame.
For a long time many people have
considered the stories that young
gdrls-were.kej?t in bondage almost im
possible. No wit is said that by mak
ing dope slaves of -the girls it is easy
for the underworld crowd to keep
them. '
It is expected that Detective Ser
geant William P. Bowler, famous for
the number of white slavers he has
brought to justice, win be assigned to
the work of discovering dope slaves.
The Desplaines street police un
covered what promises to be a sensa
tional case yesterday when they rakt
ed Elizabeth Caird's massage parlor,
421 S. Wabash, and rescued Frances
Vander, 18, 2122 Greenwich av., who
was being held a prisoner in a closed
room.
