ing offense, Mr. Moore. .Simply

lated to prejudice the minds of

people seem to "know nothing
about this phase of the case and
you seem to have been the only
one snooping around seeking in
formation along this line; so tell, I
Moore and tell us true did the
examination fall to you? If he, '
she or it, really is a woman it
would, make another splendid
sensational headline for the
Times and give Mpore news. '
