WALNUT PHONE 7-4314 dirty little shot Mr. Howard, Has laid poor Jesse in his grave. . 'It is known that some time in the month following the Northfield raid Jesse and his Bible-quoting brother passed through Missouri. In the passing they collected their wives and children, their entire combined families leaving the home state "in the dead of the night and in a single, rickety covered wagon driven from Kansas City by /their stepbrother, John Samuel." Tradition has Jesse hiding in the wagon with the women and children while Frank outrode the perilous journey .by saddlehorse. No man from Missouri likes to question his homeland's native legends. But it takes a little faith in local lore, together with a lot of innocence of Jesse's inherent wolfishness of character, to picture him cowering in a .wagonful of woman and children.. . It is a safe assumption that where Frank's horse stepped during that flight, no matter how or far in, the lead, he was stepping in the tracks of Jesse's black. ; The ' flics of. the ; Pinkcrtons today disclose the amazing geography of that'j thr.ee-year hegira which began that. : dark ' night in Kansas City. During > its wide- flung course, Frank'arid Jesse, always with their wives and children now, ' lived successively in Kentucky, Tennessee, Califor n ia, Texas and Missouri. Jesse consistently used the name of Howard; Frank the family surname 'of Woodson. So complete was Jesse's 'peculiarly j faceless anonymity that at one point in the Pink- eftpns ' u lire mitting pursuit of him "he entered and rode his own horse in the 'Nashville, Races, with the -fair grounds alive with P.inkerton detectives and local law officers." For all his crimes and the worldwide notoriety they had brought him, he was still a man without a face 'to his relentless trackers. The only ' picture ever made of him remained the one which i"hung. in' the .locket around Hi* poor mother's neck." It is. not entirely beside the point,- for one who would remember the real Jesse, to recall that he hot only entered and rode his own famous black in the Nash ville Derby ' •— ho won it! •••.

In Los Angeles and Los Angeles county, where 16 of the 36 cases have occurred, parental withdrawals were running about 15 per cent. Shots were given to only 67 per cent of an eligible 17,564 youngsters on the opening day of inoculations. Withdrawals were also on the increase in some other states and cities.
