MANIA FOR CLOTHES SAVES GIRL
DRUDGE FROM ELECTRIC CHAIR
Modern Cinderella, Accused
of Poisoning More Fortu
nate Sister, Is Literally
Crazy Over Clothes, Say
Alienists.
CANTON, Ohio, Dec. 13—Katie
Manz, 16 years old, is literally
CRAZY about clothes. And that
very fact, which gets so many
women Into pecks of trouble, will
save Katie from a terrible fate, for
Katie is an accused murderess,
charged with poisoning her older
sister at Massillon last spring.
Five alienists have examined
Katie in jail here, and unite in de
claring her mind is absolutely ab
sorbed by a diseased- vanity that
finds expression in an abnormal
passion for things to wear —clothes
and jewelry. She's fairly good
looking, and seemingly intelligent,
but is obsessed about clothes.
Her mania grew out of peculiar
conditions. Katie was the house
hold drudge, slaving from early j
morning till late night like a mod- j
em Cinderella. Her older sister
had good clothes and beaux. Katie
had nothing but drudgery. Life was
one terrible drab horizon for her, a
dreary, weary round of toil and
soul-starvation. The child's na
tural longing for pleasure, for jpret
ty things, for sunshine, for happi
ness, was crushed. Yet in the very
same house her sister esjoyed all
these things.
Suddenly the older sister died.
The autoposy revealed poison.
Strong circumstantial evidence ac
cused Katie. Stunted and repressed
by the conditions under which she
lived, they say this child's jealousy
drove her to murder her sister who
had all the bright things she
craved and was denied. Young as
she was, she must stand trial for
murder. Conviction meant the
electric chair for this 16-year-old
girl.
Katie denied the murder charge,
yet it seemed to weigh upoir her
not at all. During many months ia
jail she talked and thought of little
but clothes. She was delighted
when anyone sent her something
pretty to wear. She had no horror
of the coming trial, except that she
might have to appear in ugly
clothes. Interested persons helped
her, and Katie made, with her own
hands, a modish gown and a styl
ish hat, to lie worn -
Her story attracted the attention
of Harry LaDue, a young man in
Saginaw, Mich. He wrote to Katie.
A correspondence developed. He
asked Katie what she most wanted.
"Pretty clothes," wrote Katie. Then
LaDue came to Canton to visit
