All Roads Under Guard

was robbed of jewels and valuable
which she laid were worth $45,000

The singer, her hnband, Homer
1-finueW and the maid departed at
nee for Lo Angeles to aid in the
earch for the girl, after first tele
phoning the facta to the authorities
there and at San Diego.
San Juan Capistrano is the usual
midway point for automobile parties
between San Diego and Los Angeles.
The traffic is almost entirely by
automobile, and frequently arriving
and departing stages, as well as
scores of private cars, made it diffi
cult to determine which way or by
what conveyance the girls fled after
committing the robbery.
All Road Watched.
Mr. Samuels telephoned a complete
description of the lost jewels to the
sheriff's ofritfe at Santa Ana and also
notified the officers at San Diego and
I.os Angeles. These three counties
immediately sent out patrols on alt
roads and set watches on trains
along the coast routes.
According to Mr. Samuels Mm.
Galli-Curci and the latter's maid,
Mrs. Mae Hcndrickson, were travel
ing by motor between Los Angeles
and Sail Diego. While traveling, the
jewels were entrusted to the maid.
She stepped into a restroom in a cafe
here, laid the jewel case down for
a moment arid then, realizing what
she had done, returned to get it. It
Mrs. ilenderickson said there were
two young women in the restroom,
both blondes and one tall and wear
ing a light coat. She had no other
description of them. The jewels
were in a small blue leather case,
about the size of the case of a port
They included the following items:

department here stated that it had
been notified by telephone of tne
robbery at San Juan Capistrano

Genoa. April 6. (By A. P.)
Genoa and. its environs have been
cleared of suspicious Russians, who,
it was feared, might disturb the com
ing international economic confer
ence. Strangely enough, most of the
Russians expelled from Nervi and
other watering places in the vicinity
of Genoa were monarchists chiefly
members of the old aristocracy
who claimed they must remain In
Italy for health' reasons.
Some of the Russians were es
corted to the border, but others of
them will be permitted to remain In
Italy, in Florence, Rome or other
cities, if they so desire. After the
recent attempt on the .life ot Prof.
Faul N. Milukoff in Berlin there
arose grave apprehension lest the
Russian monarchists in Italy, bitter
against the conference, which they
are said to fear, will recognize the
bolshevik government, might make
a demonstration against M. Chitch

Officer Foreseen in Tangle
Surrounding Death of
Lieut. Col. Reck.
Sweeping Probe Likely
OmK Hr I m4 H lr,
Oklahoma City, Okl., April 6.
Disclosure nation-wide in scope,
threaten to link the name ot
dashing army officers with socially
prominent women, many of them
married, and ctue a series ol
scandals expected to startle the
country i foreseen through the
tangled web of conflicting stories
ohadowing the slaying of Lieut Cot.
Paul Ward Heck, commandant or
1W Aviation field. I-'ort Sill.
Judications arc that the War de
partment may order a far-reaching
probe of alleged booze parties which
rumor has linked with army posts
throughout the United States and
in the more isolated national
domains. This is expected to be
independent of any' .local or state ac
tion. On Trail of Cay Parties.
While brother officers of the slain
airman nought to defend Beck,
Forest Hughes, prosecuting at
torney, announced he "was on the
trail of a series of gay parties in
which the glamor of the uniform
mixed with 'brew bottles'" would
be revealed. v
Hughes, it became known, based
his investigation into 'the killing ot
Heck on reports that "the . Day
home, mi the hours preceding the
tragedy, resembled a military post."
Moinan Truitt, attorney for Day,
previously announced that- neither
Day nor his wife would testify.
"But I will testify I must tell
the whole of my story," Mrf. Day
insisted. "I have nothing to hide
! did no wrong. Why should I sit
silently by. and let the idle tongues
cf gossip sway why should the
woman always pay? My husband
is the only man I love."
Denies Liquor Parties.
"It is silly to say our home re
sembled an army post," she con
tinued. We had many army men
as guests chiefly friends of Colonel
Beck, but our home was never the
scene of liquor parties."
"Since my wife will testify, I too,
will tell my story to the coroner's
jury Saturday," Judge Day an
nounced, overruling the wishes of
bis counseL , : ..'. .
That several army officers, includ
ing Major Paddock, Beck's com
panion on the morning of the
tragedy, will testify, is certain.
"I can not see why Judge Day
savs Beck ran from him that was
fnot Beck's style," Major Paddock
declared in a statement issued at
Fort Sill. "I know Beck. He was
not the sort to hide behind a cur
tain, even if he was caught in a
tight place. Beck had been in too
many tight places to be a coward."
Padock said he left the Day home
half an hour before Beck was killed.
He was spending the night at the
home, of L. H. Prichard, an oil man
who 'lived 100 yards from the Day
Paddock denied liquor played a
part in the party preceding the trag
edy. Quotes Police Officers.
Prosecutor Hughes quoted the po
lice officers who were first on the
scene as saying that "corn whisky in
a glass, some lemon juice and a
plate of sliced oranges" were in evi
dence in addition to "brew bottles
on the mantel."
"I am positive Day jyas not drunk
had not been drinking," said
Hughes. i -..
Public opinion in Oklahoma in
connection with the case is expressed '
in a statement issued by R. W. Dick,
former warden of the, state peniten
tiary and business associate of Day.
"Oklahoma has her own code of
laws for the protection of the home,"
Dick said. "We know Beck was at
tempting . to break this code. It
makes no difference whether he was
drunk or sober. He came into the
home of his friend and violated it.
The penalty for such action in Okla-
homa is death." "
