Jerome is 'not permrrtedto "receive

San Francisco, Sept. 6. Whether F.
Drew Camlnetti of Sacramento is
guilty or not guilty of breaking the
Mann white slave act by taking to
Reho, Nev., Lola Norris, also of Sacra
mento, "for Immoral purposes," prob
ably will be determined here before
night by a jury in United States Judge
Van Fleet's court, which took the case
at 12:10 o'clock today.
Up to 12:30 o'clock the Jury deliber
ated on the four counts In the indict
ment against Camlnetti, and at that
time Judge Van Fleet adjourned court
until 2 p. m.
As in the trial of Maury I. Dlggs,0the
defense took an exception to the court's
charge as a basis for carrylngan appeal
to the higher courts.
Warns Against Pity.
At the conclusion of his instructions
Judge Van Fleet impressed upon the
Jury that they were not to allow sym
pathy for the family of the defendunt to
tlhcture their judgment.
This followed shortly upon the inter
ruption by Mrs. A. Caminetti Sr., wife
of the commissioner general of immi
gration and mother of the defendant,
who rose during the proceedings to ob
ject passionately to a part of Govern
ment Prosecutor Sullivan's argument.
The salient points set cut in Judge
Van Fleet's instructions were that it
was sufficient to establish the guilt
of Camlnetti if the Jury found that he
had aided in securing the transporta
tion of Lola Norris and Marsha War
rington from Sacramento to, Reno,
whether he actually had anything to
do with buying the tickets or not.
"It is not necessary,'' said JLbe court,
"to show any Specific declaration of
