Why there was a delay of over an hour
In summoning the police after Dr.

on her back, without covering. Her night
dress was wadded under her arms. Miss
McPherson added that she pulled the
night-dress down over Dr. Knabe'a body
before the arrival of physicians, Whom
she summoned before tha police were
notified. This action, the detectives say,
would explain the presence of blood on
Dr. Knabe'a left leg, for tha nlghtflress
was soaked with blood.
Miss McPherson and Miss Knabe were
in the house where the body of Dr.
Knabo lay for nearly an hour before the
arrival of Dr. Ernest Reyer, who was the
first of Dr. Knabe'a other friends to enter
the apartment. Miss McPherson called
MLsb Knabe and Dr. Reyer and other
physicians by a telephone situated at the
foot of the bed on which Dr. Knabe'a
body lay. She denied emphatically, as did
MIhs Knabe, that she saw a knife that
might have been used In killing the phy
The detectives today turned to investi
gation of a theory that Dr. Knabe may
have ended her own life and that some
of her friends who gathered In the flat
before the police Inquiry got under way
may have sought to take away evidence
Detectives sold they had learned that
Dr. Knabe had been despondent because
she was in debt. Jefferson Haynes, negro
'anltor of the building tn which Dr.
Knabe lived was further questioned by
the police today.
