Huirt, they said, specialized In wid

only two or three women who had not

discovery. Photographs of several
women were found in the room, which
Huirt is declared to have occupied as
"James Lawrence of Oakland, Cal."'
An effort was also being made to lo
cate Mrs. Florence Adelaide Long, who
formerly lived in Venice, near Santa
