where she had been the night of
the crime. She wouldn't talk
about a telephone call she had
early In the afternoon. She
wouldn't reveal the name of the
man she went out with.: And In
sofar as she did talk, her state
ments were conflicting.
Police concentrated on break
ing down her defiant resistance.
Yesterday they began to break
through. They brought her pic
tures of men whose names had
been found In her room. She
pointed to the picture of Brink
ert. He. she said, was the man
she had talked to on the tele
phone: he was the man she had
gone out with that night. She was
so nervous her questioners feared
to press her further except with
a ohysician In attendance.
Shortly before noon today the
police went to the Morrow home
and told Charles Springer, secre
tary to the late Senator Morrow,
to have the maid prepare herself
for further examination. The
young woman went to her room
and poured crystals from a can
marked "poison" Into a glass,
let the crystals dissolve, and
drank the deadly draft.

KLAMATH FALLS. June 10.
(AP) One hundred tired flood
workers' tonight turned their bat
tle to a new front against the Tule
lake flood waters, feverishly en
deavoring to save a 400-acre tract
enclosed by a weakened levee.
Hope of patching up the 100-
foot break in a private embank
ment was abandoned as the waters
rushed over 1000 acres of valu
able grain land on the Cox broth
ers' government leases.
Scores of men wallowed in mud
to save the remaining Cox held
ings and to prevent inundation ot
the extensive Hasklns and Kan
dras ranches to the south.
Crews were gathered late Thurs
day night in Klamath Falls and
Merrill to reinforce the farmers
and ranchers who responded at
first word of the break, but ef
forts to bolster the dykes failed.
Timbers and sandbags were
swept away as quickly as they
were placed In the gaps, and gov
ernment officials expressed belief
today the rush of the waters
would continue until the depth of
the submerged area rose to equal
ize the Tule lake sump.
