Her name is Claire Dulac, and she carries a gun. Most of her work she does in Chinatown, but she lives in a nice apartment in a big hotel uptown. That's whert I talked to her this morning. She told roe about a Chinaman she trapped last night, a drug seller. She watched for him all evening. She saw him go into a door at 213 Washington st.. and almost im mediately come out of another door at 219 Washington st.

There were several "blndle*," which Mlaa Dulac explained to me are tiny bundlea of cocaJne and morphine. They took him to Jail at 2 o'clock thla morning Mini Dulac showed me her revolver. She wears It In a holater under her sweater, it'* small but. the Way aha handled it, I guess sho knowa liow It will shoot. Her work niuat be terribly interesting, hut I wouldn't care for It It would be a good subject for a movlr. I'd think. I wouldn't mind playing In the mnvle, but In real life It's too exciting I told Mlas Dulac that she la a brave, brave girl. She told me a lot of things rhe'd done—arrested a dopr seller once, single handed at the point of her gun, "stuck up" a drug den a few nights ago. nnd thing* like that.
