Montgomery, a 17. year-old girl. Under the indeterminate sentence law, Murphy faces a prison term from one to fifty years. The trial began Thursday, December' 16th, lasting four days.

Edward Kruvosky faced the court to day and the three others Allen Mc Donnell, Thomas Brady and William Carey, are to go to trial in quick suc cession. The speed with which the trial of Murphy was conducted was due largely to a united public sentiment and de mands by civic organizations that every means be exerted by the authori ties to rid the city of its criminal ele ment. So strong was the sentiment against the defendants that, with the exception of Murphy, they were unable to obtain counsel until Judge Ward assigned at- Jtorneys to undertake their defense.

The present enlisted strength of the army is 212,000 and there are some vacancies occurring daily due to the expiration of one-year enlistments.
