wi3 compelled to change her
clethes -with half a dozen other
girl performers at tha back of the
enlall ttage. Their absolute un
consciousness of nudity made her
think less of her own.

know each other. With the ex

hand on her back, shoring her un
: ceremoniously on the stage. Her
first Jew moments were danced
amidst an ominous sllencs. Then
she got a small hand, which as
she finished became a riot of ap
' plauee. She did her encore, but
" received less applause, but Par
ker shored her back on tha stage
for a second encore, which went
- better than the first.

down on a box behind the atage,
but when ehs saw two other girl
dancers receire little or no ap

house; but Betty, disgusted, was
unahis to watch it through.
When she was dressed, Parker

"I don't Jtnow what you mean."

He dropped the conversation as
they went out to his little car at
the door. Betty gave her address.
but Instead of heading in that di

the drives along the river.

"Yeah, or me either!" he
Jeered. ' ' -
"We will see as soon as I can

had no, intention of allowing this
man to establish any social rela

spoke half angrily. He pulled her
over to him and kissed her rough

"You mustn't kiss me - like

"You coming down and let me

can -make a hit?"
"Yes, I will come, but please

HELD DEATH CAUSE
SEATTLE Feb. 1r AP)
After half a dozen witnesses had
testified that Dr. Royal H. Tracy
administered ammonia instead of
spirits of ammonia to Ella Fallia,
24-year old stenographer, -at a
drinking party here, a coroner's
jury today blamed the physician
for her death. The jurors, who
deliberated less than half an hour,
said the brain specialist's error
was "criminal negligence."
The death certificate said the
girl's death yesterday was caused
by ammonia poisoning. Persons
who attended the party In a down
town office building January 2 6
said Dr. Tracy gave the girl the
ammonia, thinking it was spirits
of ammonia, in an attsmpt to re
vive her after she became .violin V-

throat, witnesses testified and the
doctor rushed out and returned

Dr. Tracy, however, testified
that the girl died from alcoholism.
Dr. J. 0. Clarke who was called
to treat Miss Fallls later, said that
he found tbe girl almost pulseless.
Giving her spirits of ammonia, aft

like "adding fuel to the flames,"
he testified. ,
