MANY STORIES TOLD
OF GIRLS DRUGGED,
AS WAS MRS. GRAFF

Anti-Vice Societies, However,

Point was given today, to the remarkable story of the arrest of Armand Megaro, charged by Mrs. Marjorie Graff, a Brooklyn girl, and a bride of less than a week, with drugging her hypodermically in a Newark theater. It became known that anti-vice societies, social workers and others have been fairly inundated with complaints of similar attacks which have come from every section of the city.

Many of the stories have to do with alleged outrages in Brooklyn.

The committee has never been able to learn the identity of the victims or discover that the reporter assailants were able to take the young women away after the drugging was accomplished.

Is Hysteria or Truth Behind the Stories?

In Brooklyn these stories have come to the care of social workers, officers of the Young Women’s Christian Association, teachers in the schools and the police.
