return from the camp.
The sheriff says that he doea not
claim to be an expert In "sweating"
a criminal Into giving testimony
which would lead to his incrimina

that he can to find the guilty person.
He stated yesterday tha he was of

return to the case now, somcUiing

suspected parties which would lead
to the trail of the real criminal.

to unravel the mystery which until

The soldier upon arrival at camp
Is said to have shown all physical
signs of having been under the Influ

reeking with filth and his underwear
was gone. He claims to have never
used a drug -of any kind.
"Suppose I would have found your

Roy was murdered?" the Common

reply was similar to all others
"I don't remember."
