"There's a. dead woman lying
under the bridge at 25th street
and Turner Road."
This breathless message, tele
phoned in to the police station late
Tuesday night, sent two J police
men and an equal number of re
porters hurrying out to the scene
of the "crime;" but when they got
there they found nothing but a
frightened girl, very much alive.
Violet Klenel, 19, whOillves at
2282 Simpson street, had gone out
under this bridge, which if only a
short distance from her home, to
find a cool, peaceful place t o
sleep, according to tae story she
told the police.
Whether the place proved to
be cool or not, never was reported,
but it turned out to be decidedly
not peaceful. Ji -
Just before Violet arrived there
and prepared for a night's rest.
several young men in an automo
bile had come along, stopped on
the bridge, one or two got out,
and then they went on.
All this was seen by a man liv
ing in that neighborhood. Sensing
something wrong, be went to In
vestigate. Arriving at the! bridge,
he looked underneath, and to his
horror law what he took to be
the 'dead body of a woman. He
beat a hasty retreat and notified
the police. f
As near as could be learned, the
girl arrived and lay down under
the bridge la the Interval between
the time that the car drove on and
the neighbor arrived. Shej was as
badly scared when he approached,
as he was at seeing her there, she
stated later. .1
After questioning the gtrl, Mrs.
Myra Shank, police matron, took
her to her home. i

struggle in
Nicaragua between AmeTTCShia sparring
forces and armed guerilla bands,
which took about a score of Unit
ed 'States Marines' lives, has been
reported to President Coolldge as
virtually ended.
Rear Admiral David F. Sellers,
commander of the special service
squadron, in a report presented to
the chief executive yesterday by
Secretary Wilbur of the navy de
partment, said that it was almost
certain that Augusto Sandino.
Nicaraguan guerrilla leader, had
given up the fight, abandoning
the country and leaving his fol
lowers to surrender their arms
and disperse.
Sandino Last Obstacle
Sandino and his band, operat
ing in the hills in the northwest
ern corner of Nicaragua, had con
stituted the obstacle to complete
pacification of the country ever
since Henry L. Stimson, acting as
Mr. Coolidge's personal represen
tative, managed last year to In
duce two warring political factions
in Nicaragua to abandon civil war
in return for a guarantee of a fair
and American-supervised election
this fall.
Admiral Sellers' report added
that practically all Insurgent arm
ed bands had surrendered, leav

Admiral Sellers also reported
that American policies in Nicara

satisfactorily, promising peaceful
and honest balloting.
Leader Thought in Flight. '
Sandino is thought to have gone
ipto Honduras close to whose
frontier he had maintained strong
holds and across which he is said
to have derived most of his sup
